Steelband Panorama 1969 Live from the Queen's Park Savannah (Audio)

Rare Panorama record Album from 1969 featuring Guinness Cavaliers on the cover.(That's Bobby in the middle).

Note - no canopies.

But then again big bands like Guinness and Solo probably numbered over 200 strong.

Unfortunately, the winning performance by Starlift was not recorded.I included the studio version,

i am surprise!! the audio is very good.Carnival now a day is missing this,we need pan in the mass.Carnival is moving away from culture and is becoming a big party.

Hameed Shaqq,

I think in the old days the "pan pushers" were for the most part loyal band supporters who felt they were part of the band.

Because of that support, large steelbands were able to take to the streets of T&T.

That type of band support declined over time, and that's another reason why we stopped seeing the large bands on the road for Carnival.

I doubt you can keep a large steelband moving manually on the road today without paid pan pushers.

All Stars rythm section was and is still one of the best Power and Jam unmatched coul never understand how they placed 8th with this rendition

Sparrow's BONGO arrange by Earl Rodney and played by Harmonites is one of the BEST Panorama tunes ever played, featuring from both the Skins to Steel Drums..

Don't forget the unseen "Panstand" Pushers.

Yes, Colin Phillips, that was 1969. And on J'ourvert morning , these bands came on the road full strength.

There were no DJs, and pan ruled the road for Carnival.

Those were the glory days of pan on the road for carnival.

I miss those days.
