Cy Manifold - Twist in Colors (1963)

RCA Victor BBL 1213

Presenting Cy Manifold to you and to me (as I am also encountering him for the first time), a North American singer born in Georgetown (Guyana or Texas?), who had the right idea to travel (instead of living his life in Georgetown, wherever it might be) across the US and the Caribbean, performing Twist and Calypso.
In 1958 he had an even better idea: To enter Brazil and continue his career at the right spot.
