Mojo (Publisher) (p.112) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "A profane, anti-authoritarian and very witty chirper, his song topics range from Vietnam to his mistrust of British imperialism...and rumours of his own death."
Personnel: Mighty Sparrow (vocals).
Arranger: Van Dyke Parks.
Produced by the legendary Van Dyke Parks and originally released on Warner Brphers in 1972, HOT + SWEET is a delightful oddity from one of the giants of Calypso music. The irrepressible Sparrow belts out 10 of his classic tunes with typical panache, but it is Parks's eccentric but invariably sympathetic production touches that make this album truly unique.
