Ironically, this set of early soca is the best of the Kitchener collections so far. First, it has all his major songs of the 1970s, including the great "Pan in A Minor." Second it shows him contriving, like no other calypsonian of his generation, to move into the new idiom while keeping the freshness and variety of the old one. As a bonus, it's the only example extant of soca's early panache.
