2005 CD release. Don't equate calypso with "party music." Mighty Sparrow's experiences in Port of Spain left him keenly aware of violence, rhetoric and social injustice, and that all comes pouring out in his songs: No, Doctor, No (Situation in Trinidad); Gun Slingers; Sailor Man; Russian Satellite; Mad Bomber; No More Rocking; Eve, and 11 more. And the 20-plus-page booklet tells the Mighty Sparrow story!
