This two-fer from the great Harry Belafonte offers up a pair of career-defining long-players from the late 1950s. 1956's iconic Calypso provided the world (and nearly every stadium-bound sporting event) with "Day-O (Banana Boat Song)," and became the first album to sell over a million copies, while the following year's Belafonte Sings of the Caribbean, his second collection of songs from the West Indies, included the hits "Love, Love Alone" and "Island in the Sun," the latter. of which appeared in the film of the same name.

I have been a great fan of the Harry Belafonte's since he got started in the '50. I have his vinyl records, going back many years, but I now play CD's, so it was time to update. The quality is excellent as is the variety of his popular songs. It brings back many many memories that I haven't heard in years. I had this in album form, many years ago, and enjoyed very much the songs on it. But someone dropped the record on pavement, breaking it. So I am delighted that I could find it again, in CD form.
