I often wonder why more pan bands don't play more of Nappy's music. Could it be because the arrangers are too young to remember them? Apart from Exodus who have about 3 in their current repertoire (maybe Pelham's payback for Nappy's contribution in the early years) and a few other bands that play 'I Wanna Make Love to you' you never hear the music Nappy made especially with pan in mind such as 'Island Sunshine' which is a real pity considering Nappy's love for the pan (especially Phase II)

Cecil, this is what I'm talking about… there is so many ways an arranger could play with this beautiful song, and have the whole Savannah audience singing the chorus refrain along with the band… and yes Wayne, I love the message!

Very appropriate considering what's happening now.
