One of the absolute legends of calypso and mento music, Lord Flea released only this lone LP before succumbing to Hodgkin's Disease in 1959. Though he didn’t even make it to the age of 30, the Jamaican native was an international superstar during the late 50s “Calypso craze”, with residencies at nightclubs from Las Vegas to Manhattan to Miami, his image gracing the pages of Life Magazine, and appearances on The Perry Como Show and in several feature films. Harry Belafonte even had a major hit with his interpretation of Lord Flea’s “Shake Shake Senora”. Swingin’ Calypsos is an all-time Caribbean classic, and is sure to get you to “jump in the line and rock your body in time”. Reissued by Penny Records in a deluxe 140 gram LP version with a bonus CD of the album.
