There’s some dispute about what this label is actually called. The British Library lists it as Mime; the UCLA ethnomusicology department lists it as Makonde. I’ve gone with the BL.

Mind you, the BL says it’s in Swahili but it looks a lot like English to me.

Ben Joosten has confirmed that the label name is correct and, yes, these songs are in English and Swahili. Since March 2016 you can see this for yourself as I have finally come across a picture of the record on the internet.
