Thread Name: Biography: Lord Invader- calypsonian- anyone knew?
Subject: RE: Biography: Lord Invader's day job?
The date given in the bio with the CD is December 13, 1914...barely a discrepancy, but often dates get confused, sometime purposely.

I checked the CD booklet, but found no authorship for the biography therein. You might contact Smithsonian at -folkways@aol.com- to see if you can get additional information.

BTW, I forgot a 1956 LP, Lord Invader Calypso, Audio Fidelity AFLP-1808.

All in all I have 14 CDs and about twice that LPs of calypso, and that doesn't even count my Harry Belafonte collection, which is heavily calypso apart from the three albums dedicated to the genre.

Nice to correspond with someone else who has an affinity to this music.
