This Calypso was originally written and sung by The Growler (Errol Duke). He was backed at the time by John Buddy Williams and His Blue Rhythm Orchestra. There’s a lot of history behind many of the Calypso tunes that came out back then. Some of the songs were about the lack of opportunities, and what people did to survive. The choices weren’t always the most glamourous options. Here’s our take on In The Dew And The Rain from 1939.
