Pitre was popular on the local dancehall scene and his music has a loud, brash sound that strongly represents that environment. These sides were recorded at Pitre's home and at a dance and show an artist at full power. A welcome reissue of an artist we have too few recordings by. The sound is very good considering that some of these were recorded at a live dance.
