Everything Related to the Steelpan Instrument and Music

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.

Did you hear the IRON here, they want to kill it today.

Exodus has performed at least two of Nappy's compositions, Wanna Make Love to You and Celebration Time as Bomb tunes, but no pan band has played the one composition he did specifically for the pan: Island Sunshine. At least not that I know of.
