This is to calypso what the louis armstrong hot 5 is to jazz

"After wearing out the 10 inch lp i've had since college, having this material available again is a dream come true. Wilmoth houdini is an early and thoroughly wonderful calypso singer who sings about local events that take on the status of major legends as he tells of them---the revolt of the prostitutes ('No More Bench and Board')and a world class bender ('Arima Tonight')for example. His words are as good as any calypso i've ever heard. His voice is good. The band (gerald clake's night owls) is hot. And for such an old recording, the sound is good. Any time you can buy this kind of music is a golden age, for my money! --jim bogen"
