"I spend a lot of time in Panama, and young people who never were even born when SOCA hit the charts, start tapping their feet and dancing when cabbies, clubs, and even wedding orchestras crank out "Tiny winey!! Tiny winey." I did some checking and wanted a definitive SOCA album and this did the trick. A little research by the amateur like me, shows Byron Lee's influence and how many of the arrangements, songs, and rhytms we enjoy in a broad range orf salsa, reggae, raggaton, SOCA etc were influenced directly or indirectly by him personally and his band. I tucked this CD into my 100-CD jukebox player over the holidays in between traditional Xmas albums as background music in the house...the kids and grandkids stopped what they were doing and started doing dance steps to these tunes.....Heck, I'm no critic but I loved it!"
