Wow ...so amazing!!! Recorded the year I was born and still around for me to enjoy it.  Much appreciation to all who made this possible.

The Mighty Spoiler was a personal friend of mine in the fifties-He took me to the Victory Calypso tent in St. Vioncent Street as a young man-he used to come and meet me in George Street and I accompanied to him to the many rum shops in Port-of-Spain.

He also performed in many of my Calypso shows throughtout Trinidad,

At his funeral we walked from Simpsons Funeral Home in Park Street to the Cemetary.

In the front line of the cortege was The Mighty Sparrow-Nap Hepburn-Rocky McCollin and Sonny Blacks

The Greatest Calypsonian and the most loved in my time.

Rest in Peace Theopilus Phillip
