5.0 out of 5 stars Great value, 16 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mento, Not Calypso! - The Original Sound Of Jamaica (Audio CD)
I admit that I am a sucker for early Jamaican pop music: sometimes I've been disappointed by compilations. But this collection scoured from the archives is wonderful: I have never heard many of its 51 songs before. Pick of the bunch for me is 'Transportation Kingston Style' by Dan Williams who, as the lovingly researched liner notes tell me, is Grace Jones' Grandfather!

This review is from: Mento, Not Calypso! - The Original Sound Of Jamaica (Audio CD)
Brilliant. Lyrics are comically entertaining. Very old time Jamaican songs going back round about the 50's era (although it could be earlier). Some songs are suggestive in an subtle way. It would help if you can understand the Jamaican lingo to appreciate these tracks. Very enjoyable otherwise.

A spread of Rural, Traditional, Urbane and Hotel Mento from the late 50s and early 60s.
It's simple, there are tunes on this cd you can't get anywhere else but on super rare 78rpm Jamaican released Shellac.
