PANORAMA FINALS 1987.
Sun Valley had a pretty good arrangement of Lord Kitchener's classic calypso , though it was overshadowed by Jit Samaroo's legendary arrangement for Renegades.
Sun Valley is one of those venerable steelband names, celebrated in calypso and steelband lore , but unfortunately I know little of their history.
Recently , a noted pan historian asked me if I knew any of the back story of this band for the historical record , and I decided to open the question to the forum.
Any information about the history of this band will be welcome , and be recorded for posterity.
BTW , does anyone know who arranged this tune ?

This band was from Point Fortin. They and Dunlop Tornadoes were the Point reps in most national competitions.
