The Political Calypso: True Opposition in Trinidad and Tobago, 1962-1987

By Louis Regis | Go to book overview

Notes
1.
Eric Williams, "My relations with the Caribbean Commission 1943-1955". In Forged from the Love of Liberty: Selected Speeches of Dr Eric Williams, comp. Paul Sutton ( Port of Spain: Longman Caribbean 1988): 269-80.
2.
Chalkdust [Hollis Liverpool], "From the horse's mouth: an analysis of certain aspects in the development of the calypso and its contribution to contemporary society as gleaned from personal communication" ( Caribbean Studies Thesis, UWI, St Augustine 1973): 20. Superior informed Chalkdust that, "You sure to get a twenty dollars from him." This is far less -- and far more believable -- than the princely handouts with which Blakie credits Williams. See Carlton Herbert [Blakie] as told to Aldwin Primus, "The Doc would give us $3,000 of his own when we were broke," Bomb, 15 June 1990: 11.
3.
Trinidad Guardian, 4 January 1957: 7.

"Dr Williams is married", Trinidad Chronicle, 5 December 1958: 1.
5.
"Tiger quits over 'C.M.'", Trinidad Guardian, 10 January 1959: 1. See Rawle Gibbons, No Surrender: A Biography of The Growling Tiger ( Tunapuna, Trinidad and Tobago: Canboulay 1994) 83-88 for a fuller treatment of the issue.
6.
"Calypsonians complain of propaganda", Sunday Guardian, 24 January 1960: 10.
7.
C. L.R. James, Party Politics in the West Indies, 2nd printing ( Port of Spain: Inprint 1984): 14.
8.
Eric Williams, Inward Hunger: The Education of a Prime Minister ( London: Deutsch 1969): 201-202; 248. Williams claims that "P.A.Y.E" and "Federation" represented public opinion. In 1980, apropos of Sparrow's celebrating 25 glorious years of calypso performing, he sent a message to the tent reiterating the sentiments of Inward Hunger, and adding that Sparrow had come to his assistance with "Leave the Damn Doctor" during one of his most difficult moments -- he did not say which. See "PM praises Sparrow's inspiration", Express, 6 January 1980: 3.
9.
Liverpool, "From the Horse's Mouth": 16.
10.
Sparrow (Slinger Francisco), personal interview, 24 January 1991.
11.
Eric Williams, "Massa Day Done": A Masterpiece of Political and Sociological Analysis ( Port of Spain: PNM Publishing Co. 1961): 1-2.
