Apparently this song was on the LP "More Calypsos Too Hot To Handle" as "Lemme Go, Melda Marcy." The artist is apparently unidentified. Anyone have a clue about the composer? Could it be a Tin Pan Alley song? Harry Belafonte recorded this song and a verse in his rendition of "Hold 'Im Joe" has the lines "Lemme go, darlin' Melda, you breakin' my backbone"
