Synopsis

Album Description
The Mighty Sparrow's career spans over 40 years and 70 albums. He continues to redefine the true meaning of Calypso power through his amazing ability--not only to put into words and tempo the exploits of society, but to crown it all with showmanship and appeal. He utilizes his medium not just to entertain, but also to edify, enlighten, and educate. "The Mount Olympus of Calypso ... It's not just the good Calypso I like. I like the naughty stuff too, you know. My aides didn't understand the lyrics, and they were too dirty for me to translate." -- Colin Powell "As far as concept and intelligence and warring with words, Mighty Sparrow was and probably still is the king ... his shows are like prize fights and he always comes out on top, all this and a fifteen or twentypiece band just blasting away ... he's fantastic." -- Bob Dylan, as quoted by Cameron Crowe, on the Biograph box set notes "A legendary singer known as `the master of the naughty phrase.'" -- New York Times
