Rare, because mixes like this were near impossible to get hold of back in SA in the 80's, as unlike today, DJ's were forbidden to distribute music cassette mixes.
"Home Taping Kills Music" was the motto of the day in 1985. It was all 'very illegal'. Explaining to mates at school that you got a hot music tape from a notorious gay club, like RONNYZ was a big "no no". Before the birth of the internet, you actually had to know the right people to get this type of music - especially if you wanted a master quality mix tape (like the one uploaded here :) These tracks were all played from imported 12'' maxi's , mixed live in the club with basic 80's mixers (long before the days of "Virtual DJ" and computers doing the beat mixing)
RONNYZ was said to be notoriously wild! Everyone was wasted. There was wild sex in the corners, and buckets loads of poppers (alkyl nitrite) being fed into the air conditioning system by the owners :)
The place was one very decedent gay/mixed party. So much so that the armed South African police would raid the club and arrest everyone. They tried to close the club down in the name of Jesus!
This was South Africa in the early 80's! Dangerous, fun, clubbers running from the Police and their machine guns all made it a great night out!
