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 45rpm vinyl for the first time ever. On the flip, Ray Johnson's take -- a smooth, exotic trip to the Islands with atmospheric, high-pitched backing vox.
