Calypso Exposed

If, after perusing the liner notes, the calypso on this compilation "still remains barren of meaning for the gentle listener, he is either blind, deaf, dead, or just a terribly mixed-up kid—what the West Indians sometimes call a zombie!" The fast wit and wordplays of calypso are especially pronounced on this compilation by calypsonians like Lord Melody, Mighty Sparrow, Herbert Howard and Mighty Cypher.
