LP: Crazy's Super Album
Song: "Guadeloupe Chick"
[ listen ]
After rummaging through records at End of An Ear in Austin last weekend, I was taken to Torchy's Tacos on South 1st, where I consumed of the best tacos I've ever had: pumpkin-encrusted chicken with carrots, cilantro and some other delicious things thrown in. Now fortified enough to continue record-hunting, I was taken to Breakaway Records, where I found lots of good stuff, including this 1979 calypso record by Edwin Ayoung—aka. Crazy. His official website at www.socarebels.org/calypsocrazy doesn't seem to be working, but you can visit his MySpace page and listen to some of his new songs here, read his biography here, and get a copy of Crazy's terrific debut LP here or here. Any record that features the lyrics, "on TV she say when I dance, she feel I don't wear no underpants" is a winner, if you ask me.
