Album artwork for Soul Jazz Records Presents Calypso Musical Poetry In The Caribbean 1955-69 by Various

One of the most exciting and enduring forms of musical expression to emerge from the beginning of the 20th century - swinging, persuasive rhythm, brilliantly expressive melodies and lyrics of great humour and wisdom. Here you will find Calypso's aristocracy & royalty - Lord Kitchener, Lord Cobra, Lord Growler, King Fighter, Lord Byron, The Mighty Viper, Lord Ivanhoe & more. Their songs vividly capture the popular news stories and fashions of the era - the first Man on the Moon, James Bond's Pussy Galore, bed bugs, voodoo, love in cemeteries, West Indians in England, Bossa Nova, the Iron Curtain, and a white man who had a black heart transplant operation.
