“The incredible succes obtained in the Carribean by first 2 volumes
entitled ‘Immortal West Indian Songs’ appealed DebS Recordings
to undertake issue of a third volume.
Alike the previous ones, this 33 R.P.M., is a real tribute to fun; most
of its works take their main sources in the dusty files of old days.
Several songs will remind our grandmothers of their love affairs…
The best among the west indian production of artists, Paul Blamar,
who is performing a tremendous come-back. Henri Debs, Guy Alcin-
dor are highly supported by Emilien Antile, Alain Jean-Marie, they
are strolling across our islands looking for souvenirs left by our
Our artists take good fun in returning some of the inheritance they
received, through their works they sing happiness of life on those
islands , where magnificence is found each step and where
inhabitants make your conquest with their courtesy.
As a matter of fact, it is true that emotion, fun and enthusiasm give
to this ‘Musical Monument’ its real dimension.
We may without misleading, predict to this record, tender and
sensual album, exuberant and wheedling, a tremendous succes
everywhere it will be listened to, and we imagine joy and pride
it will cause in Guadeloupe and Martinique, those beloved lands
to which one thing was missing: this original sound evocation.”
