  • 1. zila mayes – calypso blues
  • 2. ray johnson – calypso blues

Two sweet and sultry renditions of King Cole's Carib-crossover classic 'Calypso Blues' back to back. On the top side, a super seductive, coquettish vocal turn from Zilla Mays, over a laid-back and lilting, percussion aided backing. This is taken from May's 61 LP 'The Men I Love and the Songs They Sing' and appears here on the clearly superior 45rpm vinyl format for the first time ever! On the slip, Ray Johnson's take - a smooth exotic trip to the Islands with atmospheric, high-pitched backing vox.
