    • 1. Stay Up Zimbabwe
    • 2. Ah Wo (Brand New Revolution)

    Classic killer calypso 12" on Analog Africa!

    After the Black Power revolution in 1970 'Bro. Valentino' transformed into a calypsonian with a conscience and a consciousness. He sang on behalf of the poor and downtrodden and was dubbed "The People's Calypsonian".  

    Sadly neither of these two great tracks transformed into financial gain's for Valentino. Both songs, flavoured with the newly introduced Soca melody of the mid 1970's, are now given a new lease of life on this record!

    Essential!!!
