ZEB 014 is a Swahili single found on Ebay by a singer and guitarist active from 1956 until his death in 1963. Details of WE 005 were supplied by Sofiane of Groovy Record in Paris in March 2011 and MR 36, which is a Luhya song, turned up on Ebay in April 2013. MR30, also in Luhya, appeared on the CD&LP.com website in November 2013.

It is unclear, however, why the catalogue numbers are so different and it is possible these are two or even three entirely different labels.  Sumira Jazz Band recorded a single on the Diploma label with the catalogue number WE 004, indicating either a link between that label and this or even a misattribution.

Thanks to Sofiane of Groovy Record in Paris for supplying the label scan in June 2013.
