Dr. Kitch – Various Artists

Dr. Kitch, front

Calypso has always been one of my favourite music styles,
especially when from the sixties which period I think brought
forth the best sound. When calypso turned into ‘soka’, what
means Soul Calypso, it changed the sound in an irreversible
way. Today I’m happy to bring you this slice of sixties calypso
which contains both known and some lesser known songs.
‘Shame and Scandal’ by the Wailers was new to me, nice
version, shame about the soundquality. Like mostly the
songs tell us little stories, not seldom hiding a
second story between the lines. Enjoy them
and share them if you can..

  1. Moos, you are too good!
    My old man loved Calypso! I still have some of those old shellac 78rpm stashed away in Ghana.
    The old man thanks you for all the good that you do.
