“Play Mas’ With Kitch” by Lord Kitchener - album review

features in: Album Chart of 1967Album Chart of the Decade: 1960s

TJR says

Opens up with “Miss Tourist”, the song which would win him the coveted top song award at the Carnival Road March in 1968. Lord Kitchener won the road march competition ten times between 1963 and 1976, more often than any other calypsonian. Best cut “The Wrecker” (released as the b-side to “Miss Tourist”) bemoans the spate of joy-rider crimes sweeping the island. It features some nice steel drums, albeit lowdown in the mix. Snazzy orchestration with some neat steel drum is a recurring feature of the LP, exemplified on “No Hurricane In Trinidad” which claims that Trinidad offers a safer destination than some of it's neighbours. It's all about the mountains apparently!
