'Marvellous Boy: Calypso From West Africa' Vinyl 2 x LP

$32.00

A compilation of obscure music from the 1940s and 50s, focusing on the calypso sounds of West Africa. Arrangements blending African and European instruments, the brass plays out the legacy of colonial military bands, albeit hair-down and a little ramshackle now; and the beautiful creole lyrics are as upful, quick, current, musical and intimate as any classic calypsonian’s. Released in 2009 by Honest Jon's Records, beautifully packaged and with exensive sleeve notes and photos, this is an essential compilation for any fan of the calypso sound.
