Roaring Lion (22 February 1908 - 11 July 1999)[2] was a calypsonian (calypso singer/composer). His 65-year career began in the early 1930s and he is best known for his compositions 'Ugly Woman' (1933), 'Mary Ann' and 'Netty, Netty', which are still performed today. The song 'If You Wanna Be Happy', which hit number one on theBillboard Hot 100 on 18 May 1963, as well as the R&B singles chart,[3] is based on Roaring Lion's 'Ugly Woman'.Trinidad's Roaring Lion is a legend in his own country but little-known elsewhere. This music is hilarious, brilliant, profane and catchy as hell. A collection of singles from the 30s to the 50s, this bouncy, smart collection belongs in every serious music lover's home
