Webb), and "Those were the days"(G. Raskin) 'Tom Cat Mambo" by Invaders Steel orchestra tag:whensteeltalks.ning.com,2011-04-06:2534462:Video:113044 2011-04-06T23:44:33.978Z Glenroy R Joseph https://whensteeltalks.ning.com/profile/NH_Trini <a href="https://whensteeltalks.ning.com/video/tom-cat-mambo-by-invaders"><br /> <img src="https://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/2970980178?profile=original&amp;width=240&amp;height=180" width="240" height="180" alt="Thumbnail" /><br /> </a><br />From the Cook 1957 album "The Champion Steelbands of Trinidad" here is Ellie Manette's Invaders and "Top Cat Mambo".
