Lord Creator - Big Bamboo

Lord Creator is best known for the original Kingston Town, later popularized by UB40 on the Labour of Love LP. However, his smooth vocals spanned from Calypso to Rock Steady and into the 70's reggae.

Big Bamboo
This collection contains some of the most over-covered calypsos of all time. One must ask "Why bother?" Give a listen. The sweet vocals of Lord Creator are worth enduring "Silver Bird" one more time. The "Kingston Town" here is the calypso tune -- not a version of Lord Creator's big hit.
