Jamaican Drums In Hi-Fi

by Jamie
(Chicago)

I saw this record on Ebay while I was at college. I listened to a clip of one of the tracks and enjoyed it soooo much I bought it even though I didn't have a record player! Fortunately, one of my old aunts had a record player that still worked and I was finally able to listen to my record.


I wasn't disappointed. I enjoyed the whole album but the calypso version of Minuet of G was crazy! Not what you would expect a Minuet to sound like! This is slowly becoming one of my favorite steel drum band recordings. Everytime I listen to it I hear something new.

There isn't a date on the record sleeve but I am guestimating it's from the 1950s as the steel drums sounded really rustic!

The drawing on the cover was done by Russell Hosan and the photo by Henry Wolf (although a steel drum photo would have been better than boys in canoes).
