The running time of this 23 track compilation is approx 79 minutes. Many of the songs come from "Belafonte" his second album released in 1956 on RCA Victor LPM1150 and on which he was accompanied by Millard Thomas - guitar/ Bud Shank - saxophone/ Jimmy Giuffre - saxophone/ Buddy Childers - trumpet/ Conti Condoli - trumpet/ Maynard Ferguson - trumpet/ Tony Scotts Orchestra & the Norman Luboff Choir. There are also tracks from" Calypso" Harry Belafonte, RCA Victor (LPM-1248),1956 and An Evening with Belafonte, Released 1957 on RCA Victor. This is a good mix of some of his most well known songs. The sound quality is very good and this makes for an excellent introduction to...CD. There are however no liner notes with this release. Ideal intro to a legendary performer...

This brought back lovely memories of my early childhood, and it was so good to be reminded how beautiful his voice is. There are a couple of "fillers", but it didn't cost much, so I am happy. Even having a Christmas song on it!

For me this didn't really include all the best of Harry Belafonte and I had to the second Best of album to get all the songs I wanted. However for the price I cannot complain.

I am happy with this collection as some of his albums are a little lacking in content, if you are a Belafonte fan this is a collection you should have.

Wonderful songs, fabulous voice, takes me back. Harry Belafonte sings these songs so beautifully, why do we never hear his voice on the radio anymore?
