Great history of the past , does anyone have any videos of The Lord Invader he was a good friend of my dad 's. he wrote Rum and Coca Cola and the Andrew Sisters made it a big hit without his permission . They settled with him and he moved to NY until his death. . His nick name was Boboy .

First time hearing this piece, Steve. It was before Bede (and yuh know he old) so it was before me also :).

Some of the names mentioned are legendary Trinidad badjohns and stickmen of that era, names like Willy Dolly, Joe Pringay, and Cut-outer.

Historic.
