Now think of 'Little Soldier Blue' by Gwynneth Ashley-Robin. I could never confuse the two, but they are both wonderful pop songs using the same simple pop song structure. Despite some biases that some South Africans (none of them SA Rock Digest subscribers, to be sure) have held, local is lekker and local pop does sound great.
This was the accident in which 15 year old South African pop star, Gwynneth Ashley Robin and her backing group Danie Schoeman, Vic Rall and Robby Potts were killed. The pilot, Pieter van Rooyen, his wife and their infant were also killed. Apparently this accident was a classic case of controlled flight into terrain, while en route to Phalaborwa.
Gwynneth’s record received worldwide attention partly due to the vacuum created by Jimmy Osmond’s recording. Both records were cute, & appealed to young teenagers & their smiling parents alike. Little Jimmy proved to be the biggest hit song of Gwynneth’s short life – It also opened doors for her. Little Soldier Blue was her next hit. It made no 3 on the Rhodesian charts the following year.
