Thanks Steve. Does anybody have the 1964 movie "Mama DIs Mas.? This movie was show in theatres in Trinidad.

As a 14-year old, I saw it at pyrimad in P.O.S. The movie was about carnival 1964. The music of Desperadoes' "Mama Dis Is Mas" was the featured tune in the background. I hope that someone has a copy of it.

Thanks again Steve for the acknowledgement.

First let me say a Hearty Thank you to Mr. Ian Franklin who provided me with this Video so that it could be shared with all Pan Lovers . Sundowners was the first SteelBand that I knew for I grew up very close to the Pan Yard and spent many nights enjoying their practice sessions from my bedroom window until I was old enough to go there and touch those notes with my fingers and thereafter I learned to play  the Tenor Pan . So you could just imagine how excited I was to be given this gift . I can recognize some of the Players like the Arranger / Captain Steve Regis , Belvee, Winston Subratee , Peter Johnson , Russel Robinson , Fats , and Norris . It would be nice if some one could name those that I left out and do the same for Invaders for I only know Dr. Ellie. I hope there are other Videos from the early years out there that you can share with us so please do . This is part of the Illustrious Journey of Pan which I know many are anxious to learn about and Enjoy . So to the Pan Fraternity out there ; Please Enjoy .
