Details / Info

Rare recordings made during the Ogooué-Congo mission (1946) in Central African Republic, Cameroon, Gabon... among them the first recordings of 'Pygmy' tribes.
Seam wear at sleeve. Insert is missing. Record doesn't look too bad but the sound is poor, mostly due to the original recordings!
