Description

Limited edition audiophile pressing of American actor and singer Robert Mitchum's 1957 LP 'Calypso - Is Like So!' on 180g premium vinyl, plus 8 bonus tracks.

"More hip than Don Johnson's Heartbeat, not as camp as William Shatner's The Transformed Man, and equally as kitsch as, well, most everything else from the '50s, Robert Mitchum's Calypso Is Like So will win you over." - Matt Collar, AllMusic

Calypso fever started in America in 1957 following the huge success of Harry Belafonte's chart-topping singles and albums for RCA. Although some dared to announce, "rock & roll is dead - long live calypso," the craze soon passed. Not soon enough, however, to stop Hollywood actor Robert Mitcham from recording this, his first LP.
