AllMusic Review by

This disc centers on some of the best Decca calypsos of the late ‘30s. Here are the songs and singers that sparked the calypso boom in the United States. They include Beginner, Lion, Radio, Invader, Caresser, Tiger, and Atilla. The notes are not very informative, but the transcriptions are good.
