Label from Victoria Music Stores, featuring productions by Okoth Kodondi. He is best-known for his extensive work with Luo benga bands on labels such as Ka-Ber and Kodondi but he also produced other bands too.


The difference between the LV and EA prefixes is unclear, while much of the non-Luo work is given a VC prefix and the label is overprinted “Special”.


In January 2012 LAS 3075 surfaced on Ebay from a South African seller, suggesting that records with that prefix were produced for the export market.
