This brief anthology collects some of the highlights of Harry Belafonte's long stint at RCA Victor from 1952 until his exit from the label's roster in 1972. While at RCA Belafonte was instrumental in introducing world music styles into the pop mainstream, and his tireless endorsement of folk music across all cultures led to a series of releases that were wonderfully varied. The strongest cuts on this collection are the three West Indies pieces, "Hold 'Em Joe," "Mama Look a Boo Boo," and Belafonte's biggest and most enduring hit, "The Banana Boat Song (Day-O)," an inspired arrangement of an old Caribbean work song. ~ Steve Leggett
