An excavation sound source series supervised by Honest Jon's.This work isThis work is a collection of recordings from 1930s to 1950s in West Africa. Contains 35 songs.

"... Precious, stinging selections from an HMV run of more than four hundred 78s, recordings made in Uganda and Kenya from the mid-1930s till the mid-1950s. Three main types of performance are featured (not forgetting a lovely early Kenyan big-band calypso, as if straight from the pen of Lord Kitchener). Most are minstrelsy, with songs ranging dazzlingly through subjects including loneliness and death, bastards and cut-off trousers, trains of fire and no-good rich people, a murder mystery and a drunken punch-up at a rumba party in Kampala, and metaphorical cocks, hard pedaling and kettles which won't boil.
