Trojan Calypso Collection

CD £11.99

Release Date: 25/05/2009

Discs: 2

Ska and Reggae aside, vintage music from the West Indies has been largely overlooked over the past few decades and so, to redress the balance, Trojan has highlighted 40 classic Mento and Calypso sides from some of the greatest exponents of the styles.

As the title suggests, the compilation primarily focuses on Trinidadian sounds from the sixties and early seventies, including numerous are recordings cut for the Pye and Nixa labels in the mid to late fifties. Quite simply, there has never been a more comprehensive or enjoyable introduction to the much over-looked styles
