Steel Drums

Spear Dance Cha Cha Cha
Steel Drums
HiFi Records R817

Live recording, according to the sparse jacket notes: Most of the performances on the drums come off in the village center in the boiling hot sun of day time." What village, located where.. there is no mention.

Promising song titles include: Zulu Chant, La Paloma, Jungle Cha Cha Cha, Native Mambo, Spur Dance, Fire Down Below, Grass Skirt Cha Cha Cha, Mary Ann, Out Of My Dreams and Spear Dance Cha Cha Cha.

Cool song titles and great cover art can't mask the poor way the recording was done, the sameness of all the songs and lack of decent jacket notes.
