When Harry Belfonte’s Calypso became the first LP to sell over a million copies, it stimulated an unprecedented calypso craze Stateside, with myriad musical and cultural repercussions. Of all the calypso oddities to appear in its wake, Robert Mitchum’s Calypso Is Like So is certainly the most curious, as well as the most enduring. On this debut LP as a singer, actor Mitchum tackles Sparrow’s ‘Jean And Dinah,’ King Radio’s ‘Not Me,’ Wilmouth Houdini’s ‘Cocount Water’ and other Trinidadian anthems with considerable aplomb, infusing his delivery with a faux Caribbean lilt that flatters, rather than mocks; a few Don Rae adaptations broaden the palette of this most peculiarly appealing picture.

Cat. number: DMOO007
