Old Calypsos: B.G. Bhaji; Jimmy Black Pudding and Souse; The Weed Song – By Bill Rogers

Real Old Guyana Calypso – Bill Rogers

Here are three really vintage Guyanese calypso recordings by Bill Rogers (Real name Augustus Hinds), a very popular Guyanese singer from the 1930’s and 1940’s. This type of music was called “Shanto”. Have a listen and a laugh at the lyrics as they scrool down as the music is played.   Enjoy!!

B.G. BHAJI

B.G.(which stood for British Guiana in Bill Rogers’ time )was probably his most popular song. It was re-made by other artistes and was also used in commercial jingles.

JIMMY BLACK PUDDING AND SOUSE 

As one comment said: “Love this old song,brings back memories of Hunt`s cook up served late night at Bourda Market green and also Nut- Channa man at Camp Street by the jail”.

WEED SONG
