EGUCHA 5 is by a Kallenjin band that doesn’t feature anywhere else in this discography as yet.


That City Sounds are listed as the record’s producers shows that Joseph Kamaru, creative force behind the City Sounds Band, was as much an entrepreneur as a bandleader. In fact City Sounds are credited as producers on the Almasi, Ba-Mbute, Ingwe, Kalambya Sounds, Maua and Shemeji labels. The operation was at its busiest in the mid-1970s which is when this record probably came out.


Thanks to Sofiane of Groovy Record in Paris for supplying the label scan and record information in March 201 and following up with details of EGUCHA 1 the next month.
