Can anybody tell me where I could find a recording of Emmanuel Rileys solos in the Invaders recordings around 1958-1960?

The recordings are on the Columbia Records label. Incidentally " Cobo Jack " is scheduled to perform at the Tobago Jazz Festival on April 29, 2011. I saw him recently in Trinidad for carnival, but he was not playing.

Its awful hard to find some of those old records. Try e-bay and check for Ellie Mannette or Shell Invaders to catch some of those fantastic Corbeau Jack solos..he is still at it living in NYC

Sorry, I realized that after I posted that. Sorry, I don't have anything pre 1964.  I hope I didn't give you false hope.

Check out steelpanstore.com.  We have a huge selection of pan CDs.  Many of them have samples available too.  Let me know if you are looking for anything particular.

Thanks, I was hoping  maybe there was something downloadable like a sample, a clip or youtube video. I noticed folks posting old Hatters, Hylanders and Dixieland Steel Orchestra videos from You Tube...and was wondering if there might be some Invaders stuff out there. I couldnt find anything myself

Best bet Rhyners record shop Port of Spain use to have a large collection of old steel drum records.
