AK 12           Winam Jazz Band Orch        JO Kaisa/Otieno Gideon

Funny where records turn up. The University of California houses the A&M Records archive. In among the complete works of Herb Alpert are two singles by this Luo band. The other is on Jakong’o Olewo.

The label name turns up in the Kenya Gazette of 29 July 1977, as a trademark registered by The Hit Sounds, a business registered at Mfangano St, PO Box 28331, Nairobi. The trademark was applied for on 3 August 1976, so presumably the record was released after that date.
