  • Description

    Item notes : Wachsmann's original recording no.: 54.786. Item notes : From available documentation: During his stay in England, the Omukama once left his coat behind by mistake when he went out. His wife Mangalita went back to fetch it and found it lying on the table. This strikes the singer as very odd, what queer habits the English have to place a coat on the table.
