Seth Lyr Req: Songs of Wilmouth Houdini (7) Songs and Lyrics of Wilmouth Houdini 02 Dec 00

I'm looking for songs/lyrics/more information about Wilmouth? Houdini, a calypso singer and bandleader from Trinidad active in the thirties and forties. I believe that he wrote "FDR in Trinidad" covered by Ry Cooder, but also wrote great topical songs about everything Britsh and American of the era. I think that he also wrote "Stone Cold Dead in the Market" that was recorded in the U.S. by Louis Jordan and Ella Fitzgerald sometime in the forties. Anyone got a clue? Thanks Seth from China
