Calypsos from Panama – Various Artists
Sounds of the Caribbean 1973


A short time back we already had that marvelous Panamenian
record with Kike Subia. The same day I found that one I also
stumbled upon this one, and in the same Amsterdam store.
Another great find from Panama but this time with Calypso.
Twelve nice songs by five different artists. I hope there will
be no censoring in the USA for there is a
nipple on the frontsleeve..

Kort geleden hadden we reeds die fijne Panamese plaat met
Kike Subia. Op dezelfde dag dat ik die vond, liep ik ook tegen
deze aan, in diezelfde Amsterdamse winkel, wat een mazzel.
Nog zo’n leuke Panamese elpee maar dit keer met Calypso.
Twaalf toffe songs door vijf verschillende artiesten. Ik hoop
dat hij door de censuur komt in de USA want
er is een tepel in beeld..

01 – Lady Trixie – Baptism
02 – Black Czar – Rookoombey
03 – Two-Gun Smokey – Bush

    Not just the cover art is great, the entire album is inspiring.

    Hi Moos,
    massive blog you have here!
    I’m plundering right now and plan to comment to the records I liked most after listening
    (I always have to smile when after scrolling through all these African/Colombian/Caribbean/Samba records suddenly Captain Beefheart or T-Bone Walker appears!)
    thanks, thanks again and greetings from the other side of the dutch border (close to ‘Limbabwe’ ;-))

    p.s.: by the way the one above is down…
