he Mighty Sparrow in his heyday, performing in a calypso tent. Some columns are easier to write than others, and despite more than three decades of covering Caribbean music, promoting concerts, hosting radio programmes, and crossing paths with just about every big name in the business, I must confess to being more than a trifle apprehensive about the one I’ve just started. I’m about to list my choice of the 10 greatest songs by Slinger Francisco, the calypsonian the world knows as the Mighty Sparrow. And I’m 100 per cent certain that no Sparrow aficionado is going to be anything but incensed. I can almost hear the gripes now, and I can only apologise in advance to those of you who disagree vehemently with my selections.
