I think you messed up with the tagging here. The first track contains the first two songs and thus the rest of track titles on the same side are displaced. What titles as “Akory Ataoko Anao”, for example, is actually “Efa Janga”. You can tell it by the song titles that appear in the lyrics.

The tagging is messed up. The fist track contains the first two songs and each subsequent song on the same side has the title of the following song. What titled as “Akory Ataoko Anao”,for example, is actually “Efa Janga”. You can tell by the song titles that appear in the lyrics.

i believe the final song I played at Donu was from the Ata Kak tape which you can find on this and other blogs.
