AllMusic Review by

Well, yes, of course, it's run-don't-walk time. This baker's dozen of songs revealed Sparrow as the greatest calypsonian of the post-WWII era, and arguably of all recorded time -- "Jean and Dinah," "Sparrow Come Back Home" and "Obeah Wedding" are perhaps the biggest gems, but nothing here is less than a diamond of the purest ray serene.
