Calypso Daddy / Everything Will Be Alright

Jukebox Jam Series

Released: 25th July 2011 | 2 track jump blues single
Originally discovered and subsequently compiled by Soho legend Gaz Mayall languishing amidst the old Modern Records tapes held by Ace Records, Jeanne Demetz's killer 'Calypso Daddy' has since been crying out for a 45rpm issue and finally there is one!

It's difficult to determine why 'Calypso Daddy' never saw a release when it was cut back in the early 50s. Perhaps it was deemed too unusual or exotic for mass consumption. Perhaps it was shelved as the bandleader responsible, Johnny Alston, had come to something of a down turn in popularity after enjoying good success through the '40s. No matter as like all good things, the world simply had to wait for this genre-transgressing beauty of a tune to emerge from its hiding place. A Latin Mambo rhythm pattern, great instrumentation and a seductive exotic Calypso-esque vocal from DeMetz, this is just the kind of sound that we go nuts for at the Juke Jam... With permission, we have also recreated the beautiful 'Modern Music' label design of the 1940s for this release, and I believe this is the first time this artwork has appeared on a 45rpm pressing (the original releases would have otherwise been 78s).
