Apparently #15 in an already-established (UK) series and the second-ever music video I bought, this first South African edition was a welcome addition to a sadly-absent supply of affordable international (read: foreign) music videos down south of the Limpopo - certainly from the buying public's perspective.
Seemingly absent, too were the consumers themselves; this was the only edition that I ever knew of.

The content, though, was great... for 1989. There's some memorable and fun stuff on here: Jive Bunny, however silly and irritating, does bring a smile to one's face and The Beautiful South's take on shallow bubblegum music is rather charming. Other favourites are #1 & 10, while the rest is very much Zeitgeist fodder.
