Re: Jims' Afrikaans recordings.
An interesting question. Gilbert Gibson of South Africa, who sent Jim the phonetic pronunciations of the songs so he could learn them both in written form and as audio demos (the latter of which I have), has commented wryly that Jim made some mistakes in how he pronounced things as well, but they left them in the songs as it was a bit of an inside joke and only endeared him further to South Africans who knew these were errors but laughed right along with them.
