Everything Related to the Steelpan Instrument and Music

For all the lovers of Combo music,I'd be remiss if I didn't post something by Ansel Wyatt.

From the compilation "Memories of the 1960's and 70's.

The rock and roll influence seeped into the music of Trinidad in the 1960's, and nowhere was this more obvious than in the popularity of the guitar based combo bands.


One of the earliest and most popular of the Combos was the Ansel Wyatt group, featuring the exemplary work of lead guitarist Ansel Wyatt.

Here from the 1962 movie starring Marlon Brando is the Ansel Wyatt Combo and "Mutiny on the Bounty".

This was the music that was mostly played in my teen years, before Otis Redding and soul took to the airwaves.

Terry is right....it is not just the music but the youthful memories that go with it. Belly to belly, indeed!!!!
