Rare Mento 78 Album Set – Lord Flea / Ken Khouri / Times Store


78rpm ALBUM THE JAMAICAN CALYPSONIANS –  WITH VOCAL LORD FLEA    CALYPSOS FROM JAMAICA

This is a rare 3 x 78rpm album produced in Jamaica, pressed in the UK and sold in a store called Times Store in Kingston Jamaica. The records are on the Times Store label and were produced by Ken Khouri at Federal. They date from the 1950s, but the exact release date or year of release is not known.

There are to date only three of these album sets known to be in existence, Dan Neely, Jeremy Collingwood and I own them. If you have any questions regarding the set, then fee free to get in touch.

The single 78s within have the following songs on them and details follow.

The version of Wheel and Turn Me is particularly fine and finishes unusually with some rather adventurous trap drum playing. You can hear a copy of it here > http://hftvj.podomatic.com/enclosure/2010-11-03T05_22_38-07_00.mp3
