Parrot Head complains that the list does not contain "I Don't Know Where I'm Gonna Go..." and about 100 others. What's a beach without Buffet?

I believe you mean Buffett, with two "T's". I've never enjoyed a buffet on a beach, but I don't care for sand in my food anyway. (but you're right, of course. Mother, Mother Ocean.....) :o)

Hello CC,

Can you suggest some really good Soca cd's I can buy?
I love that music and when I hear it for those few minutes, all daily probs have disappeared and I picture myself sailing off into the sunset.
