Duke of Iron - Man Smart, Woman Smarter

I've moved up to Calypso lp's.....



One of today's thrift store scores for the mere sum of 25 cents....

*edit:

Because i was asked in the comments to add some music here is the 1st track off this album and a little info!

The album is from 1957 and the Duke of Iron was born Cecil Anderson in Trinidad and was a master of the art of calypso music.
The Duke was stalwart in retaining Calypso as a true form of Trinidad culture. He says " Calypso has a different rhythm all of it's own, it may resemble this and that at times but it is in a class by itself where rhythm, style and delivery is concerned. Some singers are trying to change Calypso but I want to keep it as it is.

Dig it!

One of my favorite songs. I really enjoyed hearing this version.

It's no Robert Mitchum (Calypso is Like So), but it will do in a pinch.
