In the Summer of 2005 When Steel Talks had the honor of watching New Dimension Steel Orchestra from Grenada as they prepared for the 2005 World Steelband Music Festival (WSMF), held that year at Madison Square Garden in New York.

Special kudos to New Dimension Steel Orchestra, the WSMF finalist from Grenada. They understood the marketability of possessing a recording of a performance related to this event, and had the foresight to contract the services of a professional recording company, more than a month in advance, to have their yard performances captured for future release. In New Dimension’s case, capturing was done by Basement Recordings, Inc.
