Welcome to OLD SCHOOL MEMORY LANE TUESDAY!

LES GYPSIES de PETION-VILLE - COURAGE

Kicking off this one is one of my favorite GYPSIES DE PETION-VILLE songs called "COURAGE". Legendary guitar player/composer ROBERT MARTINO does work on this one accompanied by his sidekick CINCIN on rhythm guitar. ANMWEYYYYYYY. The smooth vocals of MAX BADETTE also completes this MASTERPIECE/CLASSIC of a track.

What I also liked about the old school tracks was that the CHORUSES WERE EXTREMELY CATCHY....no matter how insignificant some of them might be in terms of content...it stayed glued to your brains.

DJET X UFO SPEED 10!

DJET X - U F 0 10 Speed!

In my opinion, they never got the due that they deserved simply because of the other legendary bands that were on the scene at the same time.

Listen to this track from their UFO 10 SPEED CD. TI GERARD "Prefet de Brooklyn" on the SAXOPHONE, Pantal Guilbaud (Tout Matelot sou control...LOL) on the lead vocals, "Dr Lulux" Alix Jacques on the bass, Lavelanet on the Drums and MORE.....Apart from the Rossignol CD, I think this debut CD from DJET-X was my favorite.

Listen to the song below

BOSSA COMBO "Permanente"

One of the unique bands in terms of sound. BOSSA COMBO also had Raymond Cajuste and Dorsainvil singing lead vocals. 2 unique voices. DORSAINTVIL sings on this one as this was a HUGE HIT.

They always had a label "JAZ PREZIDAN AN" on them back in the days, as it was rumored that they were the favorites of the now deceased former President. JC Duvalier.

They were also known as GREAT carnaval composers/band. Raymond Cajuste, Dorsainvil, Damas, Mario De Volcy, Adrien...I can go on and on.

DP EXPRESS VOLUME 1!

ONE of my favorite albums of all-time of ANY GENRE....That shows you how highly I think of this ALBUM. This was the group's DEBUT ALBUM. We chose a slow kole sere track "PRAN SAN OU", and a more uptempo/mid-tempo number in "DECEPTION". This was their debut album after they broke up LES DIFFICILES de PETION-VILLE and created THIS group with a few of the same musicians along with manager Papite Halloun.

THEY WERE MY FAVORITE BAND after the first album...until SCORPIO made me change allegiance with THEIR second CD. But for THIS FIRST CD...DP EXPRESS kicked Scorpio's behind in my opinion.

DP EXPRESS "Pran San Ou":

D.P EXPRESS "Deception"

*PRAN SAN OU: This was probably the slowest jam on the high energy debut CD from the group. A masterpiece, and what I like about this song a lot is the funny banter in the background from the chorists...and IT FITS LIKE A GLOVE on the track. On a STUDIO CD...Crazy banter like " David....BANM YON CIGARETTE" and "Un petit voyage DE LES ANTILLES...et nous revenons en Haiti" are 2 of my favorites. YO TE RELAX BACK IN THE DAYS...NO STRESS...Ou pap we sa kounien an on a STUDIO RECORD with that kind of banter. CLAUDY FREMONT's synthesizer work on this jam is stuff of legends.

*DECEPTION: Lead vocalist HERVE BLEUS in my opinion, one of the golden voices to ever sing on a record. Unique....I don't think he ever got his proper props. This is DP in top form with Porky on Bass, Ti Claude Marcelin/Eddy Wooley on Rhythm/Lead guitars, Claudy Fremont on Synthesizers, Almando Keslin on Drums, Pierrot Kersaint on congas, Philippe Denis on gong,...and I can go on and on. PURE CLASSIC!!!!!
