Soca Oldies – Throwback Mix


– Soca Oldies Mix done by yours truly –

Summary of Intent:
My intent with this soca mix is to possibly interest others in some of the music that I listened to when I was younger. I can recall being passionate about hearing and recording many of these songs off the radio on either a Friday or Saturday evening (which was when a couple of prominent soca shows in Toronto aired during the eighties and early nineties). Although I did not have the money to purchase most of these records back then as a kid, my passion has driven me to purchase all of the records used in this mix within the last few years (aside from the “Tambu – The Journey” album, which I purchased as a kid when it came out). Hopefully you have an opportunity to listen to and enjoy this mix. Hey, maybe with enough positive feedback I may create and upload another.

Nontheless I thank you for your interest,
