See review

eCaroh Price: $15.95

A flourishing of Calypso creativity, a dramatic period in Trinidad's history and an audio engineer inspired these exciting tracks, originally released on Cook Records between 1956 and 1962. Emory Cook used innovative recording techniques to capture the active interplay between calypsonians and their audiences. We hear classic song-duels between calypso legends like The Mighty Sparrow and Lord Melody, lively steel band processions, and a wide range of provocative calypso songs about life, love and politics. Live and studio recordings from Trinidad. 32 page booklet presents notes, song texts, Cook discography, bibliography. 67 minutes.

Review

Calypso Awakening captures a period of artistry that we have come to hold in very high regard. The combination of  studio and live recordings from  the Cook Collection feature classic songs by Sparrow, Melody and Small Island Pride. Other performances include King Fighter's "He Nah Dead Yet" and the live steelband rendition of "Yankees Gone", later renamed by Sparrow  as "Jean and Dinah". 
 
The superb live recordings place the listener in the audience at the tents and among the steelband chippers on the streets as far back as fifty years ago. One does not have to guess what it was like then. Calypso Awakening takes you there. [March 2006 - eCaroh/Ron]
