General Note:
A tombstone feast hosted by Jennifer and Newton Joseph, both identified as performers for these recordings. Performances feature a Big Drum group performing traditional repertoire, which continues on the subsequent session. In his field log, Alan Lomax names a number of individuals who participated in this session and, unless otherwise specified by Lomax, they are all listed as "possible" performers. This session is documented in considerable detail in Caribbean Voyage: Tombstone Feast (R0ounder 1727). Some of the recordings can also be found on Caribbean Voyage: Carriacou Calaloo (R0ounder 1722).
General Note:
Call-and-response between the lead singer(s) and chorus. One of the lead singers may be Charles Bristol. Poor recording quality.
