In general I like the calypsos from the sixties better
than I do that seventies soca. Lord Nelson is one of
the always present exeptions. I must admit this LP
of 1977 is most enjoyable. From Trinidad
for your pleasure, dance away..with
Lord Nelson, ..ah, ha…

2 Boat ride
3 King liar
4 Sweet Tobago
5 All day, all night
6 The big man
7 Send them back
8 Sweet carnaval
From Trinidad comes this Soca album. The word ‘soca’ stands for
‘Soul Calypso’. Kitch is the man who was there, developing it.
The overall spirit on this album is good, it gives us some
tracks that still contain a lot of the old Calypso feeling.
It has one track however, he could have left away for my part.
Track no. 8 does not really belong here.
Aldwin Roberts is his real name, listen to ‘Kitch’!

He used to be a Calypsonian, but when during the 70’s the sound
started to change, Lord Kitchener did not stay behind.
Early 80’s Soca, when it was electronic but kind.
