Great find touches!  Was thinking about this recently, probably the most comprehensive collaborative calypsonian effort ever.  Really miss some of these guys, especially Preddy.

Stuff like this should be a part of our national museum perhaps on a DVD that simply loops.  At any rate, good find.  Is any of stuff like this on display at NAPA?

Ditto. Kitch always could make me smile. Check out super blue/blue boy handle bar. Completely forgot about Natasha Wilson until I saw this video.
