His first attempt into the big band BAND OF THE YEAR realm was BACK TO AFRICA (HE WON THAT YEAR) beating Trinidads greatest mas maker (Harold Saldenha =HOLY WAR) BAILEYS 2ND BAND 1959 WAS RELICS OF EGYPT (Bof the Y) which in my opinion was the BEST MAS PRODUCTION EVER (bar none) and I say that even tho I am a SALDY supporter. The following year BAILEY did YE SAGA OF MERRIE ENGLAND. From that year his skills waned. paddy corea
