The Regents

The Regents’ recording on Argo 5268, “Bamboo tree”/”Isle of Trinidad” is clearly a calypso recording. No information is available about The Regents who recorded these songs. They are not to be confused with the doo-wop/rock and roll group The Regents (“Barbara Anne”) or two other groups of the same name. The period of 1956/7 was the apex of popularity for calypso songs, and Argo released a number of calypso recordings, probably from a single source.
