“I played one of the six tenors that were used in this recording which was made in the panyard on Hunter Street after the 1963 Carnival. I have not heard this replay since the mid-sixties, almost 45 years ago. Thanks for the memories.

... just two additional comments to set the record straight. "I Feel Pretty" was arranged SOLELY by my good friend and former school-mate, Ray Holman. We played Sparrow's commercial "Phospherine" in 1964, arranged by then-captain Albert "Philo" James. ”  --- Ron Emrit
