Count Owen "Come Let's Skalipso" 1964



Count Owen is a legendary singer/musicians from Jamaica, and was one of the frontmen at mento scene in the late fifties through the sixties. Many of the carribean middle-period artists went flirting with the new: ska, and the result on this classic LP from 1964 is what the title say - skalipso. Mento and calypso with ska. Very groovy!

Enjoy!
