MAX WOISKI UND SEINE BAND , Calypso Nescafe, 1959


A very thin flexible disc with a nice Calypso song advertising for Nescafé sung in German with a thick Dutch accent. Max Woiski sr. (1911-1981) was born in Suriname, in the Dutch Colonies north of Brasil and had a long career in Holland. He started playing Latin-American music in Amsterdam in the 30´s and even opened up his own club La Cubana. calypso-nescafe-detail

I bet Stefan has a sleeve for this one too…

(Update July 3, 2009: As I suspected Stefan indeed had the sleeve and sent it in. Thank you!)nescafe-detail-2

Stefan also sent this sleeve for another Max Woiski record on a Dutch label. Haven´t heard it but it looks very promising.
