Sweet Island Memories by Ray Holman

If you are living away from Trinidad and Tobago and still yearn for the life you left behind, we are about to make you cry and reminisce about the "Ole Time Days." I just gave you a cheap plug to remember Nappy Myers' song, which tends to make emigrated Trinis cry. Today is a new day, and with it comes another reason to shed a tear for the life you left behind. Today we present you with a tearjerker written and sung by legendary steelpan musician, composer, and arranger Ray Holman. The song is entitled "Sweet Island Memories." This nostalgic song, along with nine other tracks, comes from the album "First Love."

Our goal is to bring back sweet memories. It is not meant to cause sadness, but to help you recall all the pleasant memories of growing up in Trinidad and Tobago. Those who grew up in Trinidad during the '60s, '70s, and '80s will better appreciate this feeling and memory. Times have changed, and the fun of hanging out with friends in any neighborhood is now fraught with unknown danger lurking and waiting to create sadness. The song we're presenting today is sure to bring a smile to your face and perhaps even a tear. Definitely one to repeat. Enjoy!
