Details / Info

Original 50s pressing, comes with 6 pages insert. 50s recordings made in Hjau and Ballanghar villages (Saloum district, Gambia) and in Medina, Senegal.
Some light ring and corner wear of sleeve. Record plays OK with light but almost constant static / surface noise, and there are a few clicks on first track. Still a nice copy!
