An intriguing Phonogram distributed label: VB 8004 from 1972 is by a Lingala band and was sent in by Pieter of the Sea Never Dry blog, while VB 8019 tuned up on Ebay in April 2012. BAO 001, though, from a Dutch radio show compiled by another Pieter was released at a much later date - late 1979. And then there’s the Lunna Kidi single VB 15, which appeared in a London record store early in 2009 and is dated 1977.
