LG 17 turned up on Ebay in April 2009 and the rest of these singles are taken from AIT’s master catalogue and added in March 2011, all pointing to the fact this is yet another label operated by Oluoch Kanindo, the producer behind POK, Oula, Bolingo and many others.


The majority of the recordings are by well-travelled Luo bands, of whom Orch DO7 Shirati Jazz are the most prolific, having recorded for more than 25 labels. 


While the AIT catalogue is a valuable resource, it is not an infallible one. Two records are listed as being LG 6, for instance. The only way to find out which is correct is to wait for vinyl copies of both to turn up.
