Roots Rock Soca Soca, the heated-up, contemporary extension of the Trinidadian calypso tradition, has a reputation as party music, frequently with bawdy lyrics. Black Stalin brings a strong dose of social consciousness to the party. "Wait Dorothy Wait" is an amusing story of his attempts to write some crowd-pleasing smut, only to have his social conscience override his commercial instincts. (He"s done all right as a composer of conscience -- he"s been crowned "National Calypso Monarch" in Trinidad"s national competitions in 1979, 1985, 1987, and 1991.) This compilation spans more than 10 years and was assembled by Caribbean music authority Gene Scaramuzzo, who also transcribed the lyrics and wrote the detailed liner notes.
