5.0 out of 5 stars Classic calypso January 5, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is now over 10 years old but is still one of the best compilations available. It will put a smile on your face and get you moving to the beat! A great introduction to those unfamiliar with the genre

5.0 out of 5 stars I wonder if this music will actually cure arthritis? March 22, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Selections 1-4 and 7-9 are seven of the best soca tunes I've ever found. The fact that they are all on the same compilation is almost mind-blowing. You can find this many great ones [maybe a few more] on 'Straker's Ah Feel to Party', but that collection is 2 CD's.
When I was at the Caribana festival in Toronto a couple of times in the late 80's, the pan bands were playing #'s 1 and 3 all over the place. The singers are totally jacked on these two, and it translates to you, the listener (and dancer, hopefully).

#'s 4 and 8 have some of the finest melodies in all of calypso/soca; and "Congoman" is one of Mighty Sparrow's strongest sounding tunes, as well as being one of the most hilarious songs you'll hear anywhere.
"One More Officer" passionately tells a great story, and the rhythms of "Maxi Dub" could steal the corpses and ghouls away from Michael Jackson's "Thriller" video, and make them a whole lot happier. Nuns and priests might get to rollicking to this one.
Musically and emotionally speaking, all these are terrifically exuberant, and very well produced.
And finally, #'s 5, 11 and 12 are good easier listening, and with very meaningful messages.
