GOOD LUCK TO THE POTENTIAL STEEL ORCHESTRA. Who can forget that "2 wrist all yuh lego" in 1977 lol.

Desperadoes was lucky to be half of a point above you all that year.

With Carlan, Amrit and Kareem, the sky is the limit.


I didn't know that POTENTIAL was EASTSIDE. Me and KEITH DIAZ used to love to listen to EASTSIDE down in the CROISEE!!!

Togetherness can only bring good results.

......Best wishes my friends !!!!
