One Of The Best Vocal Albums Ever

Reviewer: Richard Sharpless
I first heard this gem back in '65, (it's from '58), and have been looking for a copy since then. Belafonte is mellow with youth and commitment on this disc. Julie London's "Her Name Is Julie" comes to mind as a comparison of styles. It is intimate, well produced, and mellows the hour out.
