MITCHUM, ROBERT - CALYPSO IS LIKE SO (LP)


"While filming in Trinidad in 1957, Robert Mitchum soaked up local music talent like Lord Melody and Mighty Sparrow, resulting in this amazing experiment of pure Caribbean calypso in which the number one icon of Hollywood coolness insists on imitating the broken English of many of the original calypso artists (this is "dis" and "the" is often dropped), while singing a bunch of traditional Caribbean songs (complete with the requisite steel drums, congas and backing horns) along with a few Elvis-styled rockers. Includes 2 rockabilly bonus tracks the artist recorded in 1958. 140 gram vinyl." (label info)
