Never thought about it: On a quick check it seems
to be a South African expression I carted across to
I kept on using it 'cause most Germans use something
similar: They say that they will "Daumendrucken", also
meaning same as when you cross fingers for luck and
good fortune in the US of A.
Forgive me for mixing my languages up!
Anyhow, I hope quality and contents of record
will be much to your liking! Will you let us know?

Happened to unpack some of my old stuff
and found a 1978 invoice for that McNeely
Sheffield Lab-9 for South African Rand 25,99,
as I recall abt. +- equivalent to 50 Deutschmarks
in those days, so 30 US bucks aint bad at all
seeing I bought directly from the importers at at
least a 25% discount!
And it really still is heckuva lot of good fun to
listen to, so many years after issue!
There was a Sheffield Lab-9 direct to disc
recording (1978) of a group called Larry McNeely
with him on banjo and friends Geoff Levin and Jack
Skinner on guitar. Lovely lively stuff that which at
least gives me the feeling of being somewhere in
a logcabin the Ozark mountains when that need arises....
