1 - "This concert is a fascinating document of an American presentation of Trinidadian calypso at a time when interest in the genre was spreading from New York City into the mainstream of popular music in the United States" (Donald R. Hill and John H. Cowley, Calypso At Midnight, Rounder 1840). [Source: Editor]
:: Recording Notes ::
0 - Notes from Rounder Records release "Calypso After Midnight" read: "This is a typical layaway or road march, a calypso to be sung and improvised upon while dancing in the streets during Carnival. Its chorus is taken from a Lord Invader composition of the same title that was recorded in 1939 (Decca 17426), when the Trinidad festival was threatened by the prospects of war with Germany. The Duke of Iron committed his version to wax in 1945 (Stinson 105 - 3)." [Source: Donald R. Hill and John H. Cowley]
