On a late summer evening in 1963, a show took place at Los Angeles' open-air Greek Theatre in, which had fans flocking to the Hollywood mountains. Those who were not lucky to get a ticket climbed to the surrounding trees to see the Calypso man from a distance at least. Others were waiting, recording equipment at the ready, namely the sound engineers from RCA, and in the following year the eagerly anticipated album was released. Some of the songs, such a the giddy-paced "Zombie Jamboree," "Look Over Yonder" and the delightfully schmaltzy "Try To Remember," had only been released as studio recordings. The majority of the other numbers were brand new and were now heard for the very first time in the exciting live atmosphere, something that comes over authentically in this release.

If you like Belafonte Sings The Blues, you'll love this. For a live recording the sound is amazing and the song selection is superb.
