The Mighty Sparrow Soca Anthology: Dr. Bird


Here at Sokah2Soca we sometimes like to look back to a time when the lyrics meant everything to the song. Calypso is the father of Soca and today we reflect on the music of one of the greatest ever to sing Calypso, Slinger Francisco aka "The Mighty Sparrow". We think you will love this music compilation from VP Records. 
Now, don't be misled by the "Soca Anthology" printed at the top left of the album cover; the songs listed on this compilation are nothing but the best calypso tracks one can listen to in one setting from the 'Bird-Man'. 

From VP Records

Known as the ‘King of Calypso’ for many, The Mighty Sparrow has defined Calypso and Soca through the years with the countless hits he’s recorded. ‘Doctor Bird’ is a reference to the many awards that The Mighty Sparrow has received including an honorary Doctorate from the University of the West Indies.

Warner, and a bonus DVD containing interviews with friends and Soca luminaries, Alvin Daniell, Roy Cape, Diana Rhyner, Winston ‘Gypsy’ Peters, Ed Watson & Holly Betauder interspersed with vintage performance footage.
