In my latest order from BMG, in which I was fleshing out my classic rock collection with Led Zeppelin’s I, II and IV albums, I had the sudden inspiration to go looking for an album that I listened to countless times when I was growing up…Harry Belafonte’s live performance from Carnegie Hall.
Much to my amazement, BMG carried it. Joy!! Rapture!!
It arrived a few days ago, but I haven’t had time to pop it in until now. I’d forgotten just how much I loved calypso’ing around the house, not only to that gold standard, Day O, but to Mama Look A Boo Boo and Man Smart (Woman Smarter).
