Brought back great happy memories. During that period the Steelbands used to learn about twelve of those beautiful songs to make an LP plus one for the panorama competition.

CH,

CH, "Pan" as we call it today, derived or started with the first dustbin band, back in the mid nineteen thirties,  there were tin pans, bottles, bamboo's, bed chambers or pozey's, pot's and pan's, hub caps, ect, actualy it was there before the costic soda, and biscuit drum, before  steel drum arrived in 1945, these men has passed on, but some is remembered, Carlton "sonny" Roach, Adawell Sampsoen, Carlton "Bigs" Marshall, Winston "wolf" King, Big "daddy" Cole ect, it has to change, like the time's, as well as be crowded...

CH , we'll take it in part or in whole, some one  is gonna pay, EVEN IN HELL, SNSE is a subsidiary, 49% owned by a foreign syndicate with a buy back clause, and they WILL, take it outta someone's hide one way or the other or, proberbly we will own T&T in part, they should'nt mess with things that doesn't belong to them , the subsidiary transaction was done for this very reason ...

CH, the Y is the problem, and the problem is that, most pan ppl cannot see the "forrest" for the "sleaze / fleas blood suckers" like Copeland, Diaz, et al ect ect, the Steel band / Pan industries is a Multi-Trillion industry waiting to be plucked, where the hallways are lined with "pimps and thieves", LIKE THE FOREMENTIONED, in 2004 Selwyn Tarradath et al/and others, derived a Techono Pan project in Diego Martin area that was financed by The National Lottery Board, which somehow failed later on as the finance had mysteriously depleated, guess who was involved in the finance on the Lottery Board??? none other than Brian R.Copeland, after that he and his other "LODGE BUDDIES" we're given a mandate by his alleged relative the then PM in 2005, to research and create a new family of steel pans based on the 4ths & 5ths or "spider web tenor pan" which had already research and created by Anthony Williams, and Design Patent Trademark and Copyrighted by SNSE for and in the name of Williams, the 29 inch big tenor pan Williams derived in 1968 Copeland called his Genesis first of it's kind G-pan he forged from Williams where he recieved the country Highest Award for Williams work implementing "Plagiarism, where $81.5 million U.S. dollars of T&T tax payers money has been alotted to date, and it isn't over as yet, my GIST is a question, which country is gonna own the right's of the STEEL PAN??? PAY ATTENTION PEOPLE...

CH, do U really think or believe that these "politricians/illuminates"  care anything about pan people ???  do U remember the October 2014 budget where it was disclosed that, the TT Government has been paying  some $4.7 million U.S.dollars since 2005, that been allotted to someone, for a Patent/Copyright of a steel pan that the Government do not have, but they also do not know to WHOM or WHERE the MONEY WENT, yeah right like I believe that, all this public knowledge CH, it was also in the Newspapers and in PARLIAMENT, they know where and to WHOM THE BELL TOLD...

Sounds nice. You have probably seen it already. See you at the Oval. Identify yourself. I know you backing the Phase with "woman on the bass". Very intersting.
Hope all is well.

Yeah CH; a financial audit is warranted, this man Diaz should not even be in the office as Pan Trinbago President, not after what he did when he was managing Starlift in the first place, but panmen has this tendency to forget or don't care much a do about nothing, of which I will disclose later as five ace's in the whole, talking about a full house...

CH; THAT, is so true, I could remember my first close up encounter with pan, it was at my baby sister christening, where a cousin of ours "Manuel (chinge) Camps on ping pong and Grandville Sealy" of "Tripoli Steel Band" on the strummer or single strumming pan, a man with a metal  wash tub a broom stick with a string attached to it, giving it a boom sound, a bottle and spoon, and a man with a gratter and an ice pick scratching it, I was hypnotize, I probably still am to this day, so I know what U mean by blown away...

CH; talking is a distraction mechanism used by politrickians to bull shit one another, and to scare and control primitive people, the problem they have with me is, I'm not primitive and I don't scare, look CH, here is a paragraph in the Authors Annotation from my book "The ORACLE", what we have before us is an idigenous body of instruments, that have broadened the musical family of the world, which fortunately happens to be a trillion dollar industry begging to be embraced, as the music business in it self is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway lined with thieves and pimps, waiting to grab the proceed's, while great talented pan inventors/innovators and tuners live in poverty and squalor, to later die like dog's, this book was written to clarify and abrogate these chaotic epidemic, while attempting to curtail the ambiance of thieves and pimps, within it's sphere...
