The bomb tunes of the 60s was one of the high points of the Steelband thus far, we have moved so far from that it's hard to visualize that there was such a period.
What have we done to the steelband in the name of progress.
Glenroy, odw, Val please take us back with some of the bomb tunes from this period on this snow filled Tuesday, lets show young people where the steelband went back in the day.
'Penny Lane'' Starlift
Hello Cecil H...What an interesting and exciting topic. Sweet music bringing back memories. Thanks to all the contributors.
Hi Jackie, every time we hit a dead end we have to look back.
Hi Rita Seethaler, a good start could be La Traviata with Pavarotti and the three tenors.It's on you tube as The Three Tenors Brindisi (La Traviata) 1994. Post when finished :-)
Cecil, what it says is that we have a lot of musically creative minds out there in the pan world. Mr. Khan, Penny Lane was mentioned in one of the post you did not read. :-)
"Alleluia Chorus" : Amen. Nuff said!
IN YOUR OPINION WHICH ONE OF THESE BOMB TUNES WOULD YOU SAY WAS THE BEST?
Iwould say Flight on the bumble bee, by despers,
because it was the most difficult,
Is it safe to say that Desperadoes and Hylanders dominated the Bomb scene? I don't know if there is a record of who won most back in the day , I would surely like to know.
I believe they should start having a Bomb competition Carnival Monday afternoon for the same prize as panorama. This is a excellent opportunity to get the Steelband on the road again.
