When I first heard Jim Reeves’ attempt at “Ek verlang na jou” a few years back…I nearly shat myself with laughter. I can understand why he did it, and why the promoters behind it were involved. But surely someone could have guided him through the lyrics sheet a wee bit better.
Jim Reeves was out in South Africa in 1963 to make a local movie called “Kimberley Jim”
According to Wikipedia, he was bigger than Elvis in South Africa in those days.
