    Retro Soca : Charlies Roots;Kalyan;Blue Boy

    Never can have enough retro soca threads. I'm going to start with one of my favorite bands, Charlies Roots. I missed all of these gems the first time around, but thanks to record collections of older relatives and, of course, the net I can still enjoy dem.







    Never heard this version by Roots before. Even with Rudder on vocals, i still prefer the Imagination Brass take.


    Some conscious soca by Blue Boy

    Queen Rose. Vintage soca, brass blazing, plenty percussion and nuff iron. I first heard this tune on an old tape my father had. Years later, I borrowed the Lp from a Trini neighbor and digitized it. Soca at its best. This is an example of why soca was considered the ultimate party music.



    Kalyan- Actually, I've only heard this band's music on the radio. I was looking for their version of "tan tan," but found this remake of Eddy Grant's tune instead.

    More Roots.




    Listen to brass arrangement and the rhythm section with the iron high in the mix. Music evolves, but i can't get into the tata they offering nowadays.
