The Progress of Winsford Devine - A Collection of Caribbean Lyrics
Edited by: Nandi Ogunlade
Compiled by: Jamil Asinia

When it comes to composing calypso, the head-scratching aficionados in Trinidad and Tobago and abroad would do well to meet Winsford “Joker” Devine.

For decades he has been virtually unheralded. But, all that changes with the publication of this book which affords us a glimpse into the soul of the man through the magnificent work he continues to create in our lifetime.

The collection also allows his work to take its rightful place at the helm of the contemporary world of calypso.  

Long overdue!
