I’ve got a little record collection going on at home and besides the 12″ LP’s I also have a stack of 45′s. One in particular I have puzzled about because I have lost the actual vinyl and so only the cover remains. Also the only place I remember hearing this song was in high school where a Bougainvillean mate of mine used to sing the song when we were off to classes.
So just wondering is there anyone out there that may have a copy of this song? Or is there anyone out there willing to sell old PNG records?
The back of the 1963 cover reads:
“The artists on this record are the Kopy Kats of Papua, New Guinea and Fred Maedola of Honiara, British Solomon Islands. Recorded by the Australian Broadcasting Commission, Papua, New Guinea and the Solomon Islands Broadcasting Service.
