Product Description & Reviews

Sealed This delightful CD is a remarkable time capsule of Trinidadian society of the 1930s, preserving opinions, emotional responses, and attitudes of the people along with the historical record of the events of the day. The Calypsonians use witty wordplay to comment on local and international politics, sports, movies, music, and matters of the heart. Endearing music accompanies the topical lyrics. Clarinet and violin often play lead, joined by horns and piano, and the rhythm sections propel the syncopated music along jauntily. It is easy to enjoy this music without knowing some of the more obscure lyrical references, but the extensive liner notes do a fine job of explaining the context and details. The sound restoration of the rare masters that make up this excellent collection preserves the ambience of the period while getting rid of annoying surface noises and making the important lyrics all the more clearly audible. --Jeff Grubb
