Everything Related to the Steelpan Instrument and Music

Many years ago , I remember leaving a fete in Royal Hotel, San Fernando one night , to get some air , and recover.
The featured band that night was Pete de Vlugt and the Dutchy brothers, a top dance band of that era in the early sixties.
Suddenly , my head cleared from my youthful drunken stupor, as I heard this hit from the Dutchy brothers blasting out from inside the dancehall.

The band never sounded sweeter !

From Best of The Dutchy Brothers - Vol 2.

The distinctive sound of the Dutchy Brothers is featured in this Dutchys hit from the nineteen sixties.
The lyrics of this song were written by Bob Russell and the music, though credited to Paul Weston, is actually derived from Frédéric Chopin's Étude No. 3 in E, Op. 10.

This song was a 1950 hit by Jo Stafford, Paul Weston's wife.
