As a long time Makeba fan I purchsed this album with a hope of finding a few unknown gems. Alas, I was let down.
This album appears to be tribute to Miriam who died last year whilst peforming in in Italy. The logical thing to do with a tribute album would be to do a greatest hits album (already been done), to release an album of unknown works (unlikely), or to issue a chronology (preferable). None of these have been done. Instead we have a mishmosh of newer, overproduced tracks, one or two of her well known tracks and a couple of tracks that are generally not available. There is no order and no reason to the track listings.

Personally, if I were to buy a Makeba album, I would go for 'Mama Africa - The very best of Miriam Makeba'. A well rounded and thoroughly enjoyable compilation.

I would have given this album 2 stars but, as it's Miriam makeba and I'm biased, so it gets an extra star!!

Miriam Makeba 24 Mar 2011
By ewaale@stofanet.dk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
unfortunately the cd's with Miriam Makeba, even they are quite ok, is not what I really wanted.
I would have liked to know, the contens, since what I was looking for was
her very first performance from the 60'ties.
I heard her in Tivoli.
What I got was later performance and I fell the backgrund musiv as too dominating comparing to her song. Her first was so very true.
But I got that from my son.
