you are crazy! 5 OUT TEN PAN SONGS. woman ON THE BASS IS THE ONLY ONE OF NOTE .DESPERADOES HAS ABOUT 15 TO 20 OF NOTE. iWoman on the bass is on vinyl since 1984 or thereabouts..... so yeah it is a staple at parties and so on Rebecca is not...see the point.
We can all listen and say Clive was a master of pan but in no way does, he comes close to the genius of pan that is Leon Smooth Edwards. Clive had many a good year at Despers without a doubt, but ask anyone who knows good pan the most commanding tune ever and they would tell you Woman on the Bass. Just to prove it all of these bands played their signature song for the turn of the century competition in 2000 and All Stars came out on top once again. In a race to the top All Stars holds the record of five out of the ten most memorable songs ever plaid on pan. Please do not get me wrong Rebecca was an excellent performance by Desperados and will live on as their greatest achievement, however that is just one of many to choose from.
Undoubtedly one of the maestro's greatest works.
Truly a fantastic arrangement
