***The legendary 1972 Warner Brothers album, produced by Van Dyke Parks & Andrew Wickham, Hot + Sweet features the finest Calypso vocal recordings ever produced by the man known as "The Calypso King of the World." 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. The Mighty Sparrow is Slinger Francisco, Chief of The Yorubas, who has brought honor, glory, and dignity to an indigenous art form that was once scorned by the elite of Caribbean society. He utilizes his medium not just to entertain, but also to edify, enlighten, and educate. "Recorded during a hurricane in Miami, the power of the wind and rain whipping the studio were matched only by the power and beauty of these compositions, chosen by Andrew and myself as the greatest in Sparrow's prodigious catalogue." - Van Dyke Parks
