I must have played that album about a thousand times between ' 66 and ' 70 when I migrated and like a fool I gave away my favourite album. It still hurts me to this day.

I was just 8yrs old and my husband was 10yrs old at that time but we must say as pan lovers we really enjoy that "OLDY GOLDIE piece by one of our favorite steelbands...hats off to a job well done.

Question??. Is this album available anywhere in the US or for that matter anyplace in the world.

Good one Glenroy "Yesterday" from F to Eb.  

Only (5) players that were on that recording still play with Desperadoes today. (8) have passed on and the rest resides outside of T&T.
