VR 7-101 is from the British Library’s National Sound Archive and dates from the 1960s or 1970s. It is a single by a Luhya band, though no further information is available about the group. In April 2011, Sofiane of Groovy Record in Paris supplied a label scan of the record.


More than four years later, in November 2015, VR 7-102 turned up on eBay. Again, the artists do not appear anywhere else in this discography, though the seller said the acoustic style of their performance is more typical of the 1960s than the 1970s.
