Wow! I am actually one of the tenor pan players on this one. I think it was Panorama 1984. I played that and Scrunter's "The Will", and Merrytones is my band FOREVER! When everyone was leaving for other bands, I stayed, and "bigged up" my community of Diego Martin. That is why, to this day, I still get love, anywhere on "De Main Rd." (Dillion St., Mason St., Bagatelle, Coveigne Rd., Cemetry St, Church St.) Special shout out to we flagwoman,  Mamma Cita. I immigrated to the US, after playing with them for two years (Panorama and Stage Side), and by the time I returned in the early nineties, they were already reduced to a "medium band", due to attrition (of players running to "bigger bands". I still play with Merrytones whenever I'm in Trinidad for Carnival. THANK YOU, so much, for posting this clip, Glenroy; it's brining back a whole lot of memories (smoke and beer filled nights of drilling in de panyard...)
