These are not professional recordings.  They are unedited, so you can hear the scratchiness of the vinyl LP record.   Jessie sang to an instrumental versions of the songs, and was recorded by her brother Malcolm at his home at Shine Street, Port of Spain, Trinidad - circa 1958. She was well known in her day for her beautiful voice, and often performed as soloist at weddings and other functions.
