Clarence Curvan Orchestra: Lord Kitchener's "Mama Dis is Mas"

I've always loved this Beverly Griffith arrangement of Lord Kitchener's classic "Mama Dis is mas", which I think was the best.
.For the most part, this is also the arrangement played by Desperadoes that year.
From the 1965 Esso promotional album "Tiger Goes Calypso".

I like the Hylanders version, but for many years the Beverly Griffith arrangement played by Despers was the one that was stuck in my head.

In my eyes, the best mama dis is mas, is by Hylanders.

In my eyes that year Despers won and let me tell you I'm not bias.

If any one has the steelband version upload it now
