Me Ting is Mine

That addictive calypso sound, saucy, ballsy, outspoken, but not exactly an atrocity. Emory Cook was an audio engineer and inventor who used his "Sounds of our Times" and "Cook" record labels to demonstrate his philosophy about sound, his recording equipment, and his manufacturing techniques. From 1952 to 1966, Cook recorded, manufactured, and distributed some of the highest quality audio recordings in the world. The 140 titles on Cook Records include European and American concert music, U.S. and Caribbean popular and traditional music, as well as mechanical and natural sounds. Emory Cook ran two divisions of the Cook company, Cook US and Cook Trinidad. Most of the albums recorded in Trinidad were made available on Cook US, though there were some that weren't. Emory Cook sold Cook Trinidad in the early 1980's. He donated Cook US to the Smithsonian Institution in 1990.
