Album Notes

While most of the Rough Guide music compilations strive to represent the contemporary music of a given region, THE ROUGH GUIDE TO CALYPSO GOLD goes back in time to mine the vaults of Trinidad's rich musical history. Including some of the earliest recordings from the area (dating back to the 1920s), alongside enduring calypso legends such as King Radio, Lord Pretender, and Mighty Bomber, CALYPSO GOLD is a treasure trove of classic island sounds. The collection is guaranteed to have even the most casual calypso fan tapping a foot and singing along.
