Here's a different edition of one of my favourites. I really like the picture of Franco on this sleeve.

Do you know how many of these Kenyan LP's were released?

I only have the ten In Memoriam volumes, plus the other two that you show, plus Boma Ngai, and one of the Fifteen Years ago series of which there are at least three volumes.

There is also a Ten Years ago volume so I guess that there may be dozens more that were released in Kenya in the seventies and eighties.

I also have a couple of Simaro LPs that were Kenyan releases.

I've also had a few Nigerian copies of OK Jazz albums - but they have been very poor quality pressings. I bet you too have plenty of Nigerian records made from re-cycled vinyl that supposedly has bits of dead bodies in it?
