Glenroy, I always loved this calypso along with Federation. I Clearly remember Carnival Sunday night at the Calypso King competition when he beat the pants off of all other competitors. As a matter of fact, I was always invited to sing these two songs at family and other gatherings during my early teens and accompanying myself on the guitar back in Trinidad. Incidentally, I am looking for the song "Race Track Scandal" I believe I have all of the Millenium CDs and this song is not on them, I am subject to correction here. Does anyone have this song. It was on a RCA 45. Best wishes to all members of  "When Steel Talks"
