Calypso Carnival Twenty-five classic performances from the golden age of Trinidadian calypso. A good-timey music on the surface, much of calypso"s depth comes from the incisive intellect and verbal wit of its master vocalists. "Calypso traditionally takes a jaundiced view of life. Though praise is meted out when deserved, calypsonians normally assume a stance somewhere between reporter, editorialist, moralist, and satirist. . . . Lion, Tiger, Atilla, Executor, Invader and Radio were power names taken by calypsonians as compensation for their status at the bottom of the social and economic ladder." --from Dick Spottswood"s liner notes
