I found my album and has been playing it for the memories since I was in the audience. My Bro was in Pan Am performing.

Hi Glenroy, hope you are well .Firstly, I would like to thank you for sharing these memorable festival  pieces with the Pan Fraternity. I would also like to compliment the Tuners who are continually making significant progress in the making and tuning  of this remarkable instrument. Compared to the Sixties, the overall sound, tone, harmonics etc, have improved tremendously .However,  I would like to make a comment about a particular  tuner. As a young man growing up in  Laventille, I was very impressed by a panman who I think is now deceased. His name was Carl Greenidge, the uncle of Robert  Greenidge.This guy was a remarkable player and Tuner in my opinion, at that time For some reason I have never seen or heard his name mentioned in any of the several Panbooks. I also heard that some tuners who came after him even emulated some of his techniques. Maybe someone can share some info about Carl Greenidge.It would be greatly appreciated.  martin Albino

Thank you, Ms. Albino-de Coteau. I thought this was your brother's arrangement , but I wasn't sure.

One of my reasons for posting these rare gems is for the enjoyment of people like your family who were involved in the development of the artform into what we know today.

It is also my way of showing appreciation, and  thanking the pan pioneers who created the art form.

 Thank you Mr. Glenroy R. Joseph for resurrecting this album through " When Steel Talks". Of course I am doubly grateful as my brother Martin Albino was the Arranger of Savoys at that time. It brings back many memories.

 Very grateful and appreciative.
