GRS 824 was one of the first records in this discography, an undated Kikuyu single in the British Library’s National Sound Archive by C Kiratu, who also released singles on CDKS and Kikuyu Sounds.

The British Library listed the label as being Golden Rings Saudika, but the arrival of information and a label scan in March 2011, courtesy of Sofiane of Groovy Record in Paris, has led me to re-name the label as G.R.S.

GRS 101 turned up on eBay in June 2016. It appears to be a tribute song to kenya’s first president Jomo Kenyatta, who died in 1978, suggesting the record was released that year.
