PKZ 8, 17, 32, 60 and 67 are all Zambian pressings, so may or may not share the same catalogue numbers as any records pressed in Kenya.

Kasongo was a hit in 1977, which gives a clue as to the time frame for these singles. Nashil Pichen’s name, though, muddies the waters to a degree. It’s known that the Zimbabwe-born veteran of the Eagles Lupopo met the band in Zambia in the early 1970s and encouraged them to move to Nairobi, which they did in 1974. His name, though, is not associated with the band’s most popular recordings, so did he make these Luapula recordings with them for an overseas audience?
