Joburg Hawk or also just Hawk as I assume they were known by in South Africa. This is a tribute thread to this album but also the bands discography in general. If you have anything to share regarding the subject feel free to post. There are a few things Ive wondered about. For example why they changed their name to Joburg Hawk for this album, copyright laws in the EU perhaps? The original South African release has just "Hawk" on the cover at least. Has the track Dark Side of the Moon somehow inspired Pink Floyds album? This did come out just before Im pretty sure. Whats with the other foreign releases being so expensive compared to the UK counterpart? At least on Discogs they go up in price a lot. Maybe its just to do with rarity? The UK has Porky in the runout which makes me assume its the best sounding version. And lastly, speaking about sound. Whats the best sounding press to those who compared? I believe the master tapes burned up in a fire but Im not sure if that was after the EU releases. If it were before then the South African releases would be the only one cut from the original tape. I have a copy from the Netherlands and it sounds really good just for the record. But Im curious about the UK and South African mostly.
