Thread Name: Blind Blake Calypso singer???
Subject: RE: Blind Blake Calypso singer???
I have several Blake calypso recordings. I contacted Art Records in Florida some years ago and they made me cassette tapes. Thanks for the liner notes; They didn't have those. "Baubles, bangels and beads" is from the musical, "Kismet", and you are correct: The music is from Borodin. Blake appeared with Perry Como on a TV special some 20 or more years ago. I wish I had a copy of that.

I don't check in too often, but feel free to contact me directly.
