SELF HELP

SH 7-009 turned up on Ebay in April 2011. It is by a Luo band who also recorded for the Ben’s International, Doromy, GMS and Polydor labels and were at their most active in the early 1970s.


Writing credit on the single goes to Dr Clifton Adams Nyahore. It may be a coincidence that Clifton Adams was a prolific Oklahoma-born writer of pulp Westerns of a kind popular before spy thrillers took over the mass market.


Nick Beddow very kindly sent in details of SH 7-010 in September 2016. It is by Peter Akwabi, one of Kenya’s most durable musicians, active from the early 1960s to the early 1990s. Go to his entry under P in the Bands Index and click on his name to go to an article about his career.
