I keep getting delayed in my attempt to write a season preview, a book review and a few other things but I dropped everything today when I heard this song for the first time. The artist is The Duke of Iron, also a new name to me, but apparently not to New York area Calypso fans in the 1940s, 50s and 60s. In celebrating we fans’ love of the team in spite of its foibles, I thought the Duke aka Cecil Anderson, who died in 1968) captured the spirit perfectly, as does the sound.
I was so inspired to share, I downloaded the song tonight and whipped up the accompanying video from stuff I had lying around. Enjoy!
