Calypso Through the Looking Glass

Calypso Through the Looking Glass

This recording features ten favorite calypso songs by Lord Melody, including "The Letter," "Alexander the Murderer" and "The River." No listener can escape the ribald rivalry between Melody and Mighty Sparrow, which is perpetuated by "Belmont Jackass" and "Hungry Barbers." "Turn Back Melody" was reissued in 2000 on Calypso Awakening from the Emory Cook Collection (SFW40453).
