Bob Marley was quoted as saying, "When I heard Mighty Sparrow sing" The Slave, "I knew what I wanted to do with my music." Sparrow creates calypso-sounds, so powerful, they have earned him the title of Calypso King.
This first reissue of his National Record Company album from 1963 was recorded almost immediately after his RCA contract ended and, with Sparrow's legendary singing style, funny and (at times) caustic and provocative lyrics, is an exciting document of its time and a noteworthy musical oeuvre.
