Surprised that Robert Mitchum sings Calypso? It would be stranger if he couldn't. Fact is, he was
learning the fascinating language of Calypso long before it became the rage in the U.S.A. And he
was learning it in its true home, Trinidad.
Not all the songs he sings here are absolutely as he first heard them (the censor wouldn't stand for
it). A couple of the tunes are already well known; a couple are even newly written for the occasion.
But every one has the authentic flavor, the beat and the vitality of the real Caribbean thing. All are
products of great talent and great enthusiasm. Calypso, Robert Mitchum says with considerable
authority, is like so...
