Does anyone know who sings the version of Coconut Water on the album Calypso Is Like So?

Robert Mitchum! I love that song. We were just talking about Robert Mitchum & his Calypso chops Thursday while at the Conga Lounge.

Isn't Robert Mitchum the name of the actor on the cover? I thought that album was a soundtrack, or am I completely nuts?

Yep, it's Robert Mitchum the actor, and it's not a soundtrack -- he put out an album of calypso songs.
