From International Soundclash, compiled by Sofrito (Hugo Mendez & Frankie Francis), out July 24th.
From the album's liner notes:
Legendary Calypsonian Lord Shorty (aka Ras Shorty I) was instrumental in the development of soca music in Trinidad in the late ‘70s. Here he lays down the anatomy of a soca track, introducing the musicians and singers in the band one by one in the style of King Curtis’ classic track ‘Memphis Soul Stew’. Drums, percussion, bass and horns build to a joyous and unrelenting soca groove.
