Desperadoes Video Clips :

Please note that some of the videos that have been described as 'panorama finals' by their posters clearly are not - semis, more likely.

Also please note that the quality, both visual and audio, more often than not is not that great on YouTube. I've tried to pick the 'best', but sometimes even a lousy quality is acceptable on account of the merit of the arrangement, performance, etc. (The visual quality especially on TTT - Trinidad & Tobago Television - has never been that great to begin with, in no small part due to the atrocious lighting at the Queens Park Savannah stage combined with the use of canopies by the bands!

Among the historic Despers treasures featured here are the two greatest ever arrangements - Rebecca and Musical Volcano. 1991 remains my firm favourite ever final - the standards were outstanding, the excitement incredible (see also Renegades minus canopies - brill!). You really had to be there! Musical Volcano and Despers just blew everything away.
