"Leave Joan Alone" | Francis "Tallish" Adams

If you like listening to calypso then we have a good one for you. This song was done at KMPMUSICLAB and is one that definitely would not be a favorite of the ruling party of Trinidad and Tobago. Now it is not all that bad but this is a song where Tallish gives an ex-minister a 'Bligh' (as they say on the street). Some will like it while others may feel offended... that is the job of he Calypsonian and Tallish does it with class.

In this song Calypsonian Tallish is singing in defence of Joan Yuille-Williams, ex-government Minister in the former PNM  administration. He is really singing in defence of the former government and taking the opportunity to pepper the current administration making references to the amount of times the former Minister assisted members of the East Indian community and the many East Indian festivals etc. This calypso shifted from an equal opportunity stance to discussion about the race pie. Don't get upset because you have to be able to call a spade a spade.

Regardless of what you think or feel this calypso is well executed and Francis Adams sounds like a young man singing calypso in his prime. This is the first thing I noted about the song. The music is sweet with a traditional calypso rhythm on the heels of Tallish's stinging lyrics. The vocals are clean and the lyrics are biting with a sweet calypso melody... this is a nice one for 2012 very good work.

Production Notes:
The song was written by Francis Adams aka Tallish; the track was produced by Garvin Marcelle for G-Note Recording Studios. The sweetness with finalized by Mr. Kenny Phillips who Mixed and Mastered and finalized the track at KMPMUSICLAB.
