    Something different today. Calypso from Venezuela with
    Agrupación Convenezuela. Calypso in a more percussive
    style, not really comparable with calypso from Trinidad.
    Various singers like Kenton, Lulu and Clotilde. Give it
    a couple of spins and make up your own mind ..

    Vandaag vinden we eens iets heel anders. Dit is Calypso
    uit Venezuela met Agrupación Convenezuela. Calypso in
    een meer percussieve stijl, als ik het zo mag noemen.
    Tamelijk anders dan calypso uit Trinidad. Met zangers
    kenton, Lulu en Clotilde. Luister en kijk wat jij ervan vindt ..

    He had his prime time during the late 50’s and early sixties.
    After a long hiatus from 1962, in which a few collectors
    appeared, he came back in 1974 through this album, Salt ‘n
    Pepper. It was the time in which calypso slowly evolved into
    soca, I’m glad Lord Melody still brings calypso on this one.
    Lord Melody was one of the main calypsonians with Lord
    Kitchener and Mighty Sparrow, a true pioneer ..

    Most calypsonians stood on stage motionless when singing.
    Not Slinger Francisco, he moved around like James Brown.
    When someone said,”why don’t you just sing instead of moving
    around like a Sparrow?”, his name was born. After just Sparrow
    and Little Sparrow, he took the stage name ‘Mighty Sparrow’.
    Slinger made a huge pile of records, this one is from 1967.

    De meeste calypsonians stonden stil tijdens het zingen, Slinger
    Francisco niet. Hij danste in het rond als James Brown. Toen iemand
    zei,”waarom zing je niet gewoon in plaats van rond te dwarrelen
    als een ‘Sparrow’ (mus)”, was zijn nieuwe artiestennaam een feit.
    Na gewoon Sparrow en Little Sparrow werd zijn naam uiteindelijk
    ‘Mighty Sparrow’. Hij maakte een grote stapel platen,
    dit is er een uit 1967 ..

    This album with Jamaican Calypsos, also called ‘mento’,
    came to me in a wrong sleeve. I went online and found
    the correct sleeve at Discogs. It was a little puzzle to find
    the names of the artists but that also fell in place a little
    later. What do we have ? 12 songs of which you may
    know a couple from Trinidad calypso’s, but this time
    done by Jamaican artists. Listen & enjoy ..

    Deze plaat, waarop Jamaicaanse calypso, ofwel ‘mento’,
    kwam ooit in de verkeerde hoes bij mij terecht. Online
    vond ik de juiste omslag bij Discogs. Het was nog even
    puzzelen naar de namen van de vertolkers, maar ook dat
    kwam uiteindelijk goed. Wat hebben we? 12 nummers
    waarvan je er enkele zult kennen uit Trinidad, maar nu
    uitgevooerd door Jamaicanan. Luister en huiver ..

    Calypso, the infectious rhythms and melodies of the
    Caribbean area originated in Trinidad. It is really the
    musical expression of the Afro-West-Indian population.
    There are various explanations for the origin of the word
    calypso, but it’s most likely, that it stems from the African
    word ‘Kaiso’, which means ‘bravo’. The lyrics (in dialectic
    English) and the melodies are usually made up on the spur
    of the moment. The words very often have a double meaning.
    The topic is sex, but very often deal with current events of
    social and political happenings. The rhythms are enticing
    and the songs are therefore popular for dancing.

    It is only from 2003, but already out of print as far as I can see.
    A collector of 14 wonderful calypso’s by various artists. Saucy
    Calypso’s as most calypso’s are quite saucy for that is one of
    the characteristics of the genre. It got my attention when
    listening to track 14, Lord Canary’s Dr. Beckles Clinic.
    Such fun to hear how the crowd goes crazy here ..

    Hij is slechts uit 2003, maar reeds niet meer te krijgen zover als
    ik kan zien. Een verzamelaar met 14 heerlijke calypso’s door diverse
    artiesten. Saucy Calypso’s zoals de meeste calypso’s ‘saucy’ zijn, dat
    is een algemeen kenmerk van deze muziek uit Trinidad. De cd trok
    m’n aandacht toen ik het 14de nummer hoorde, Lord Canary’s
    ‘Dr. Beckles Clinic’. Zo geestig te horen hoe het
    publiek uit de bol gaat ..

    01 – Sparrow – Sell the pussy
    02 – Duke – Mommy come and see
    03 – Lord Kitchener – No melda
    04 – Duke – The dentist
    05 – Lord Kitchener – Handy man
    06 – Mighty Sparrow – 60 million frenchmen

    08 – Mighty Terror – Callaloo tonic
    09 – Duke – Beast for sale

    After being in an accident on the VanWick Expressway in
    New York in 1970, Lord Nelson had to recover for about
    two years. Luckily he picked up his career where he had
    left off and came back with this album in 1973. Later
    he became a soca star. Personally I like the calypso
    a whole lot better. Get it and spread it like always ..

    Nadat hij betrokken was geweest in een auto ongeluk op
    de VanWick Expressway in New York in 1970, had Lord
    Nelson zo’n twee jaar nodig om weer de oude te worden.
    Gelukkig kon hij daarna de draad van zijn carrière weer
    oppakken en kwam hij terug met dit album in 1973.
    Later werd hij een soca ster. Zelf heb ik een stuk
    meer met calypso, luister en geef door ..

    On Disques Vogue, probably from the sixties, we find this CMDINT 9577.
    It is the very last one listed at their Discogs discography without year of
    release. Ry-Co comes from Rythmes Congolais and was initiated in 1958.
    Based in Martinique from 1966 to about 1971. Their records are kind of
    hard to come by. Radio Martiko re-released one of their albums in 2018.

    hun albums her- uit gegeven.

    Maybe you have the same experience as I did several times. You are
    on a record fair or market and stumble upon an album you’ve been
    looking for for quite some time. Quickly you check the quality of the
    record and if it’s okay and you like the price, you buy it and go home
    a happy man. A little later when you play it you think, hey, this not
    the elpee it’s supposed to be. You had not checked the label and just
    assumed it would be the right one. Sometimes it really sucks because
    the music sucks and sometimes you get more or less lucky like I did
    this time. The record inside appeared to be another rare and very
    nice one. It is a shame you don’t have the albums right sleeve but
    the music is the most important of course. I plucked the sleeve
    from Discogs this time. Hope you like it too. Have fun listening ..

    Misschien heb je dit ook wel eens meegemaakt, ik al meerdere keren.
    Je bent op een platen beurs of markt en loopt tegen een elpee aan die
    je al langere tijd zocht. Snel check je de kwaliteit van het vinyl en als de
    prijs je ook bevalt koop je de plaat en gaat als een blij man huiswaarts.
    Even later als je het album draait merk je het pas. Verdorie, dit is niet
    de juiste schijf die erin zit. Soms baal je d’r van omdat ie gewoon slecht
    is en soms heb je mazzel zo als ik dit keer. De plaat die je aantreft is ook
    zeldzaam en hartstikke leuk. Het is natuurlijk jammer dat je de goede
    hoes er niet bij hebt maar de muziek is vanzelfsprekend het belangrijkst.
    Ik heb de hoes in dit geval bij Discogs weggeplukt, hopelijk vind jij hem
    net zo leuk als ik. Luister met plezier ..
