The remastered tracks on this are actually re-recordings of the hits you probably thought you were buying - not the original hit recordings. Some of the remastered versions are not even at the same tempo as the original hit records. One to avoid if you want the original hits.

What a range of songs in the Harry Belafonte canon. This CD covers most of his great tracks and probably a few you've not heard too. I played this on the stereo and my kids, aged 2-years and 8-years-old danced along to the tunes. Amazing how nearly fifty years after it was recorded the Banana-boat song still gets them going.

For me the real standout track is On Top Of Old Smokey, but there are lots of other great tracks here too. If you've ever wondered what it was about Harry that made him so big all those years ago get this CD and get up to speed fast.

His songs and the music is classic that will never die out.
The words of Harry Belafonte's songs always tell a story,some very sad stories like"work all day for a tot of rum"
They are everlasting songs
With a beautiful beat to tap the feet or get up and dance as we do.
Excellent cd ,and very good value for money from Amazon as usual.

The good tracks and well known ones are really great, but it is dated, he sings in a kind of "proper" English accent, which to me just does not fit in well with some of the songs.

Wonderful service and excellent cd. Harry Belafonte is one of the few remaining living legends who over recent years has been sadly neglected

It did remind me of my youth and I enjoyed hearing most of the songs again. Also bought a second CD as a present for a friend.
