CD Reviews

Golden Age of Soca
Eric Eppes | South Carolina | 07/03/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The best collection of soca tunes you will ever hear without going to Trinidad. This album will make any day brignt and sunny."
Classic calypso

"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"
I wonder if this music will actually cure arthritis?

"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."
