Retro Music Decca #78 1939 Calypsos By Wilmoth Houdini

My 78 collection is getting larger. Thank you Ebay. Now I need a good 78 cart. This is one I have been trying to find for a while. The three 78's are in great shape. It even came with a bonus booklet with important information on Trinidad's Calypso traditions. I've included them in this post.


This is the inside sleeve. It features several Carnival troupes. Great costumes.

This is the first time I've seen this booklet. I was very happy it was intact with this 78 set. It tells the story of how Wilmoth Houdini became the King Of Calypsos. I made these scans big so they could be read. If your into music history of the Caribbean this is a must read.




Can't wait to spin this 78. 78 booklets like this are the best way to collect 78 rpm records. I have many 78's but the ones in the best shape come from booklets like this one.

    Nice blog!

    Glad to see another copy of this rather scarce calypso item! Maybe your readers wouild like to hear the album at my Sanctum.

    Oh, Fleischer's cartoons were run theatrically (along with newsreels and other short films)...the Popeye series he did would indeed show up later on kiddie TV shows along with other so-called "safe" cartoons, but many Boops were considered a little, er, "naughty" for the younger set. I didn't see any on TV until I was a teenager (in the early 1970s).

  11. When I find myself humming a tune from a Beethoven symphony, or invoking one of its characteristic rhythms (dit-dit-dit-DAH), I reduce a complex sonic tapestry to an abstraction, a shorthand that is easily recognizable to others familiar with the music. gosoundcloud
