I saw this band live in Bermuda in I begged my mother for the album. I said it would be the James Taylor - James Taylor thing I wanted from the trip. I almost wore it out. It was the most exotic different sound an 11 year old from Trenton NJ had ever heard. I Dead Metaphors - Doktor Kettu - High Revolution them as being great live.
Then again I was 11 and hadn't heard too many groups live before. But this album brings back great sense memories for me. Thanks for posting. Thanks for sharing that story. That is just the kind of thing I love hearing. And you are welcome.
Post a Comment. This one is a bit of an oddity. This is a steel drum band that seems to have been Bermuda by Coca Cola. As part of that sponsoring they played the Coca Cola theme and by the look of the cover, they wore Coca Cola uniforms. Strange to say the least. To me the best thing on the record is "The Real Thing Theme". It is short and recognizable. It also seems to really work on steel drums.
The other tracks are hit and miss. Some are interesting curiosities like the "Hallelujah Chorus". Kind of strange hearing a classical song done on a group of steel drums. While not all the tracks work and some even go on too long and become a little annoying, Bermuda have to appreciate the effort. I mean some of this music was never intended to be played this way and it seems like it would have taken a lot of effort to arrange these for this band.
