This was bought as a present for my father, who loves Harry Belafonte's music. And he was really pleased with it, so that's what counts!

All About Belafonte 15 Sep 2005
By geode2000 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I bought this box set because there were no CDs of my favorite albums, "Belafonte," "Mark Twain," "An Evening with Belafonte" "Calypso" & "Harry Belafonte Sings of the Caribbean." I wasn't disappointed. It contains the gorgeous ballads, fun dittys, moving gospel & "jump up" Calypso I remembered with such fondness. The set also includes songs recorded earlier & later than my favorites, serving as bookends of enjoyment. The book focuses on Belafonte's personal life up to and including the making of "Island in the Sun." The only flaws I could find was that the book contains no lyrics and little about the music itself or the artists that helped Belafonte sound so great. It would be wonderful to know something about the soprano who did the lovely duet with Harry on "Mo Mary" or which guitarist accompanies Harry on "Merci Bon Dieu." That said, this box set comes highly recommended for any Belafonte fan.

Eureka! 5 Dec 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Having searched widely for a cd of "Love is a Gentle Thing", one of Belafonte's finest lps of long ago, and finding none, I was thrilled to locate a key song, "Turn Around" on this collection. Wonderful for a wedding video!

WARNING!!! 3 Jun 2010
By C. Schmidt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It is almost silly to say that this is the best collection of Belafonte's early material. It's not really the best. It's EVERYTHING!

There is one exception, though. This box DOES NOT feature the original Mark Twain album version of Man Piaba. How this mistake was made, I do not know. But the version on this box has the lines of the last verse all jumbled up so the story makes less sense. The real original released version is featured on Gretest Hits Volume 3.

The reason Harry would've recorded a version like the one on this box is quite a mystery. Whoever rearranged the lyrics for the album version was a smart guy. On the album the story comes to a natural end with complete sense. Maybe the take featured here is from an import version of Mark Twain... UK or Europe, perhaps?

Great and ageless party music. 1 Oct 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a must own for any serious CD collector. The music is great play while you work, or for background music at a party. It really creates a 'feeling' and atmosphere. The songs are timeless and relevant to anyone who has travelled to the Carribean or longs to go there someday. Harry Belafonte is one of the greatest artists of all times. His music was a driving force that helped transform American culture.

Harry Belafonte brings back to me my childhood 18 May 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I heard this song when my father played it in his gramophone during the Nigerian civil war. I was thrilled when, as a 4 year kid, I started dancing to the tune. Especially the song "Day O". I am looking forward to the day I will meet Belafonte. I will thank him for reserving the memory of my childhood as a 35 year old man.
