The Village Ram - Mighty Sparrow
Sell That Pussy - Mighty Sparrow
New Vinyl! I recently bought an excellent compilation by the king of calypso, his majesty the mighty Mighty Sparrow. Some of the tracks are a mixed bag. Generally 'best of' records never quite have the perfect mix. Yet it's fun to see, as a time capsule, what was considered the best of Mighty Sparrow in 1970. 'Jean and Dinah' makes sense but the addition of the slightly atonal 'sell that pussy' makes me smirk.
The first track 'Village Ram' opens with an excellant yowl/scream and the second track, 'sell that pussy' makes me cringe. in a good way.
