As the terrorist drama unfolds in Paris, France, I recall that in the mid-60s there was a competition within Panorama for the best version of the theme  song from the war movie: 'Is Paris Burning?'  Former Radio Trinidad broadcaster Rodney Webb of 'Town says Paramount' fame use to advertise the competition on his 15-min programme on Sundays. Does anyone remember who had won that competition?

Cavaliers '67 Is Paris Burning

the competition in 67 Is Paris Burning was sponsored by paramount pictures was won by Solo Harmonites. I think.

but because of it's fame, I would not be surprised if it was not part of several band's repertoire.
