Again" LEE CHONG'S PAN GLOW - DeFosto's "Bassline" arranged by Jit Samaroo(1995) tag:whensteeltalks.ning.com,2010-10-24:2534462:Video:72714 2010-10-24T23:39:43.310Z Glenroy R Joseph https://whensteeltalks.ning.com/profile/NH_Trini <a href="https://whensteeltalks.ning.com/video/lee-chongs-pan-glow-defostos"><br /> <img src="https://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/2970977785?profile=original&amp;width=240&amp;height=180" width="240" height="180" alt="Thumbnail" /><br /> </a><br />Panorama Finals 1995.<br /> <br /> Lee Chong Pan Glow's rousing performance of one of DeFosto's best pan tunes -
