I can’t imagine why no one has done a recent cover version of “Mama Look at BooBoo”, the classic Lord Melody calypso song, here watered down and rendered harmless by Harry Belafonte and Nat King Cole …..perhaps it has something to do with the adorable nickname the kids have for their father, or dad’s old school way of dealing with his disrespectful brood.

If you love the vintage calypso, as I do, be sure to stop by Irwin Chusid’s new blog that provides visual accompaniment to his WFMU radio series “Muriel’s Treasure”.
