Mighty SparrowTatoo Woman ... LP
National/Think (Japan), Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $38.99 46.99
Very cool work from Mighty Sparrow – a calypso set, but one cut at a time when the music was fading from the mainstream – which allows Sparrow to keep things nice and raw, and deliver lyrics that have the same sort of bite as some of the best island sounds from the early days!
