              • Damn, well if you ever decide to sell it or if you ever hear about another copy popping up then please let me know.

                Magsonjazz seems to have used one of his songs in one of their shows.

                I found this thing about him here:

                http://www.eatribune.com/articles.php?id=6

                "Sal Davis was of our own. Based in London of 1960s Sal Davis is the only star from East Africa to acquire international fame and popularity as a singer and composer.

                Young as I was at that time listening to his earlier numbers like ‘Poor Little Rich Girl,’ ‘Mama You Treat My Sister Mean,’ to mention only a few of his hit numbers, the way he sang astounded us.

                The accent in his English, the orchestration, and the chorus girls in the background - for most of us initially it was not easy to tell whether Sal Davis was black or white. It was only when ‘Makini’ was released in which he mixed Swahili and English lyrics that his identity was revealed to me.

                I was surprised to learn that his name was Salim Abdallah. Sal Davis changed his name to acquire one, which went with the trade. May be the name was just too mouthful for English fans or would sound and look out of place on billboards and record labels."
