LR 7-116 is an undated choir recording that surfaced on Ebay in January 2012. Without hearing it, perhaps the most interesting thing about the record is that it appears to be by a Tanzanian choir. Mwanza is the second largest city in Tanzania, with a current population of about 2 million.

The catalogue number indicates other recordings on this label must exist, a fact confirmed by the appearance of LR 7-103, LR 7-134 and LR 7-165 on Ebay in July 2013. LR 7-113, LR 7-124 and LR 7-172 turned up on the Discogs website in April 2015, with the latter dated as being from 1974.
