Good one Ben, The Banana Boat Song and Island in the Sun are two of his other classic calypso songs

Always wanted to go to Jamaica to watch the cricket and fancied having a go at making one of those steel pan drums made from oil drums.

He is still going strong at 94.

Yes Ben, I remember when England wanted a new fast bowler they just shouted down the shaft at one of the local pits.

I enjoy most music genres but certainly not Opera or (c)RAP music. Trad Jazz I don't mind but not too keen on the other types.

I thought I was fairly clued up about 'pop' music etc.. from my formative years... So when a bit of Youtube searching suddenly made me aware of the late Edie Sedgewick.. I was gobsmacked that she'd managed to stay under my radar. All of her story is here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edie_Sedgwick

 

But, briefly, she was from very old US money and brought up by a controlling and abusive father. She came to prominence as an associate of Andy Warhol and his 'Factory'..but soon split with him.  She is alleged to have had a relationship with Bob Dylan.. who was not a fan of Warhol.. and warned her of him..but details are sketchy and contested.

What is less contested is that Dylan wrote several of his major songs about her:

I don't think even Dylan would have written such sarcasm had he known she would die a few years later aged only 28.

 

Edie Sedgewick. 1943-1971

Don't know where you sourced your info there DJ? Over 50 year old recollections in this age, can, be, at best 'soundbites'.

 

There was biopic..ish, called, The Factory about a decade ago, if I remember had a few interviews with Edie at the end, could have been the Cavett show?

I don't get what you are saying HSR.  I got most of my info from the wikipedia page which I clearly linked to in my post... though I did read around a little elsewhere. It seems to me that most of the facts of her life..and untimely death.. are known.  So whose 50 year old recollections are you referring to?

Here's one that made a ripple in UK the charts in March 1964... and was still a popular dance tune years later when I was a fab DJ.
