Specialising in mento and calypso releases. Sometimes called MRS or . In 1951 Stanley Motta built a small recording studio at 93 Hanover Street, Kingston (just around the corner from his shop on Harbour Street). The music was cut directly onto acetate lacquers and, as there were no manufacturing facilities on the island, the lacquers were then sent to the UK for mastering and pressing by Decca Records in London. The finished fragile shellac 78rpm records would then be shipped back to Jamaica.

Calypso From Jamaica contains all the tracks from that groundbreaking release plus related tracks from Belafonte's subsequent RCA albums to make a wonderful sequence of artful, faux Caribbean folk that isn't particularly Jamaican, although it definitely is shot through with a West Indies sensibility.

This is a holding position for this release as information on it is currently sketchy, hopefully you can add to what is known. Known to have 6 records in it, and what details there are of those potential recordings are therefore included; though it has unfortunately not yet been sold online with details of all 6 78rpm records within, instead it has been sold with a variety of records placed within that are not Motta's, MRS recordings. And the records intended to be in it are unknown currently.

It may be that the cover and records within were interchangeable as there is not catalogue number to cross reference from cover to items. For now this hopefully will suffice as a place where details can be added and narrowed down. Interestingly MRS records of the same artists and titles have been released and are available as singles with differing index/catalogue and matrices. It has been assumed that these were later re-releases, but perhaps some are numbered for inclusion in this Album of 6 records.

These details were taken from more than once source, and unfortunately were not complete in some instances. As you complete information, please edit these notes to accurately reflect the knowledge gleaned. Thank you.
