Maestro...Boom Bam...Greatest Hitz (Calypso)

Great calypso and an interesting take on Panorama circa 1975.

"Dey Cheat, Dey cheat, we want to see the score sheet"

Sounds familiar?

As the old timers used to say in the tents, "Kaiso, Kaiso, Maestro"

It's most likely that it was played on pan, Terry.

Maestro was a known panman back in the day, and like Kitchener, many of his songs were about pan and perfect for the pan.

I hesitate to call them "pan tunes" since tunes like Boom Bam, Fiery, Tempo, Reveler and several others,  while suited for pan , were also very good calypsos.

I find the designation "pan tune" somewhat limited.

Yeh Glenroy. This is real sweet, well composed kaiso. Was this composition also played by pan? It seems perfect for

pan interpretation.................Terry
