Here´s Bermuda´s favourite Calypso group under the talented leadership of Rudolph Commissiong.

Here´s a collection of tunes specially chosen because of their popularity in the hotels and night spots of Bermuda.

Here´s an album of Calypso rhythm played in the inimitable style of the Esso Steel Band, a style brought into being by the oil drums which have been treated to produce that special sound. Each drum has it´s own personality - the Ting Pong´ is the melody, the Echophones provides the harmony and the ´Tune Booms´ are the ´Strings.´

Here, captured forever, is a treasured memento of Bermuda, the nostalgia of moonlight nights, benevolent summer breezes and warm sparkling surf is yours to remember as these haunting melodies remind you time after time of that holiday in the isle of the sea and sun.
Recording Volume V —

Back of the Jacket1FLATTS INLETS: Banked by tall and stately palms, a gentle flow of blending green blue water; Flatts Inlet, a "home port" for small pleasure boats and fishing boats, lends an attractive setting to Bermuda vistors. Back of the Jacket3 GOOD FISHING: A big Allison Tuna whooses aboard a Bermuda charter fishing boat at the end of a good fight. Allison, or yellowfin, tuna are among dozens of sporty gamefish varieties caught off the mid-Atlantic resort island.
Back of the Jacket2 THE FRANCONIA:
Well known to American visitors of this Mid-Atlantic resort, makes regular weekly sailings from New York to the post of Hamilton, Bermudas. Displacing 22,632 gross tons, the Franconia carries 700 passengers and ties alongside Front Street, only a few yards from Bermuda´s most attractive Shopping Centre.
Back of the Jacket4 HOME OF THE EASTER LILY" Bermuda gave the world the lily as a symbol of Easter. The lily was brought to the mid-Atlantic island from Japan by a missionary returning from the Orient in the 19th centruy. From the modest beginning, the flowers known the world over simply as Easter lilies.
Back of the Jacket5 TIME TO SPARE: Quiet Somerset at the isolated west end of Bermuda, where only the clocks run fast - to keep people from being as late for appointments as they think they are! Ely´s Harbour beckons to water skiers, sailors and swimmers alike.
