"Congratulations to Leon 'Smooth' Edwards for tying with the late Jit Samaroo with 9 wins, not counting the win in the International Panorama in 2015 which would bring his total to 10. A champion and a gentleman."
"Merry Christmas everybody, you know I don't like to hang out here too often, but I have to point out how one of my predictions over the last few years is coming to pass. Anyone notice that bands are abandoning the so called 'pan…"
"Congratulations to Carlton Alexander,and Despers.They and Phase 11,were the only bands to play any progressive music.I love All Stars,but I honestly thought they were going to come 10th. Why don't all these other bands come out of the seventies…"
"While I share in the accolades being presented for Desperadoes in this forum, it would be appropriate if some time was spared to congratulate the other bands for their performances, in particular second place winners, Supernovas,for an excellent…"
I feel your frustration! How could All Stars win the Tune of Choice Category, tie for first in the Calypso Category, and not win the Competition. Desperadoes won theTest Piece Category only, but won the overall competition. I stated the reason why in my book. The same thing happened in 1988. Renegades won Best Choice of Tune and tied with Desperadoes for 2nd in the Calypso Category, but Desperadoes won the overall competition. The key word is aggregate total of points and not how many categories won. Desperadoes won the Test Piece Category by a wider margin than they lost to the other Category winners. In layman terms,
3+2+1=6 but 3+2+4=9
