ASL

Associated Sound (ASL) was a major conduit for Lingala records in Kenya, licensing tracks from labels in DRC Congo and Congo-Brazzaville as well as recording expatriate bands such as Orch Les Noirs.


Originally an independent, it was bought by Phonogram/Polydor in the late 1970s. Its cataloguing system remains a bit of a mystery to me. Why do the secondary AS numbers not run in sequence with the main catalogue numbers? What’s the significance of the extra letter at the end of some catalogue numbers?

Peter Toll has also identified this EP on the label


ASL EP001    Orch Baba National                          Unyumba Sio Lela /Tokisnana Tata Kabassele



I’m not sure where the following single fits into the general scheme of things. The main catalogue number suggests it was one of the first ASL singles produced; the subsidiary number, though, suggests a much later release date. Any ideas?


ASL 002F     Conga 68 de Bokelo                        Na Kende Mosala/Likambo Likwele Ngai


TSHK series: this single turned up on cdandlp.com in late 2011. A label scan (top of page, second row far right) verified the catalogue number, although it is difficult to see why ASL departed from its usual format.
