From the back cover: The Steel Bandits performing on this album appear nightly at The Gate, popular "ross-a-time" rendezvous in downtown St. Thomas. They are considered one of the best steel bands in the Virgin Islands. Each man has been playing the pans "from when 'e been a 'lil bouay" as their leader Lionel Samuel will tell you.
