BBS 01        Blue Boys Band                    Ndukarute Ihu/Thina Wa Atumia


A record that Sofianne of Groovy Record in Paris alerted me to in April 2011. BBS stands for Blue Boy Sounds and the Kikuyu band behind it do not feature anywhere else in this discography.

Ishmael Ng’ang’a, the band’s leader, has a writing credit on at least one single by Melodica Success, though it is hard to tell whether his involvement with the Blue Boys Band came before, during or after his time with Melodica Success.

The label design, incidentally, is clearly copied from ASL but with less elegant lettering.
