    Comment:

    Both books contain horrible stories about the financial exploitation of artists and their strugglesto retain ownership of their compositions. The scene in South Africa was no different from abroadand local artists also discovered that written contracts were not always a legal guarantee for financial reward.

    Danny Rivers experienced similar problems. Despite a written contact, he never received any royalties for his composition "Restless Heart", recorded by Charles Jacobie in 1967.
