    These recordings were made between 1975 and 1987. This is the best of all the albums of traditional Antillean music, and the notes are absolutely first-rate. It includes play-song dances, beach party and game seasonal music, work songs, religious (kete), wake songs, quadrille music, and St. Lucian (La Rose) society songs. ~ Don Hill
