Wicked and wild - many moods & styles. 7 inch Re-issue of two songs from the 1970s, recorded in Trinidad.

Born in Matura Village, Trinidad in 1949, Doran Dorril Hector aka ''Versatile'' began his career as a guitarist in a quartet singing group in 1965. He first began writing and performing Calypso in 1967. After travelling as a lead singer with Ed Watson and the Brass Circle, visiting the entire English-speaking Caribbean, he also went to New York, Miami, The U.S. Virgin Islands and Guadeloupe.

In 1970 he decided to get into the Calypso genre and changed his artist name to ''Versatile''. In 1975 he recorded Let It Out. The song was a mixture of Calypso, Funk and African influences and served as a good example for the newly evolving musical artform called ''Soca''. Back in the studio in August 1977 he recorded the socio-critical song Destruction, a soulful reggae tune. The backing track was recorded by Colin Lucas and his newly-formed band ''Sound Revolution''. After Carnival the following year the song became a big hit in Trinidad and the wider Caribbean and finally Dorril's signature song.

Dorril kept recording his own material and is performing live to this day. He is also an active member of T.U.C.O. (the Trinbago Unified Calypsonians Organisation).
