Everything Related to the Steelpan Instrument and Music
In the late sixties and early seventies, Solo Harmonites was one of the dominant steelband powers and seemed to be a fixture in winners row at Panorama.
Musically led by the great pan arranger Earl Rodney, the band had a big, "town band" sound, and some of Earl's arrangements have been stuck in my head to this day.
In 1971, Solo Harmonites were Panorama winners,in a tie with Starlift.
From their 1971 album, "Carnival Time" here is their winning Earl Rodney arrangement of Lord Kitchener's "Play Mas".
