We recommend the other recording in this
The production of this, the second compact disc in the joint Canboulay – Sanch venture, makes accessible the outstanding calypsos from the post war pre-Sparrow era of the 1940’s and 1950’s. We have augmented the selections on the original cassette production so that a more complete and enjoyable experience of the period and our show Ah Wanna Fall is represented. Indeed, as listeners will discover, the decade offered some of the sweetest and most memorable melodies, predominantly those of Kitchener, Wonder, Panther and the incomparable Spoiler on whom the drama was built. Altogether they convey the shifts in musical content that marked changes the society itself had undergone. Re-live and enjoy.
Recording – Sunday 2nd Feburary 1992 at the JFK Lecture Theatre, The University of The West Indies, St. Augustine, Trinidad.

Musical Director - Desmond Waithe
An outstanding collection of calypsos from the postwar era of the 1940s and 50s, as performed by Trinidadian actor/singers David Bereaux, Clem Haynes, Kurtis Gross, Leah Gordon and others for the memorable 1992 Canboulay theatre production Ah Wanna Fall. The show’s title was calypsonian Spoiler’s trademark phrase, of course, and he is one of the play’s main characters, along with Kitchener, Melody, Commander, Pretender, Killer, Panther and Wonder. This wonderful selection of songs by these calypso greats takes us back to the good old days when serious wit and a massive talent for double entendre and thinly veiled smut were a prerequisite for membership in the calypso fraternity.
