Overview

A wonderful potpourri of some of Tiger's most popular calypsos from the 1930s, coupled with a few of his more recent songs. Recorded in 1979, Tiger is accompanied by an all-star Latin orchestra, including Cubans Jose "Chombo" Silva on violin, Chocolate Armenteros on trumpet and Candido on congas, along with Puerot Rico's Yomo Toro on guitar, quatro and percussion. This album was the first modern recording of a singer from an early period, and it is the first calypso album of any kind with thoroughly sound notes. It was nominated for a Grammy Award.
