Calypso Boogaloo This fabulous collection of Mighty Sparrow originals was issued in 1968, and contains the first recording of Mr. Walker, which Sparrow re-recorded a number of times over the years. The song satirizes a loser who thinks romance is all about money; he wants to marry an unattractive woman with a rich father ("Every time I take a good look, at she face I see a bankbook"). Calypso Carnival '68 is one of Sparrow’s most high-energy albums, veering at times into rock stylings (. Calypso Boogaloo" and "Wood in the Fire").
