I actually spent a year in the rural Kalihari desert in 1994. I only had three tapes and I had a tape player in the truck. If I was lucky I could catch Law and Order in English at night so that was my other link to the western world. Here was my list:

Aerosmith - Permanent Vacation
Steve Miller Band - Greatest Hits
Bob Marley - Legend

I must have listened to those tapes hundreds of times. The rest of my music was on CDs but unfortunately no CD player! You learn to take what you can get.
