MIGHTY SPARROW'S FIRST FLIGHT reflects his post World War 2 Trinidadian world of bravado and high rhetoric, in which violence of tongue and hand,the cut and thrust of word and razor, were reduced to a finely-honed skill.
Sparrow's earliest calypsos served up unflinching social commentary, spun with invincible exhuberance and literary panache, and set the pattern for the next four decades of his career.
The 18 classics of First Flight that include "Mango Vert" , "Carlton Peeping at Me", "Sparrow vs Melody Picong","Eve", "Short Little Shorts","Post Card to Sparrow" and "Gunslingers" remind us that calypso, in the hands of a master like Sparrow is much more than party music.
