AllMusic Review by

A companion volume to "Calypso at Midnight", featuring a transcription of a radio performance from 1946. While some of Alan Lomax's recordings function best as museum pieces, these performances are great fun. Lord Invader, Duke of Iron and Macbeth are on hand with their orchestras. Alan Lomax serves as MC. While the sound quality is uneven, it is still a nice document.
