3.0 out of 5 stars Why not provide a COMPLETE version of this album? Nov. 20 2001
Format:Audio CD
When this album was originally released, it was pressed on two 33-1/3 RPM Vinyl discs. Unfortunately: as it appears on this new cd format: almost two full sides of that original album are missing - and that is a real shame if you (like me!) are a Belafonte fan!
The original album included some tracks from the Carribean that are not found in these arrangements on any other - and to have failed to have provided them is astounding to me!
The tracks that are here are just as vibrant and memorable as ever - and deserve 5 stars - but to have failed to have actually re-mastered and produced the true original album fromat is unforgivable to a true fan!
The loss of those additional tracks and arrangements preclude their enjoyment by an entirely new audience who would love them as much as the original fans did!
Perhaps if we all send our feelings to the producers they will cease providing these inaccurate and short copies of great albums in the future.

3.0 out of 5 stars Half a loaf May 16 2000
Format:Audio CD
WATCH OUT! This is only half of the original LP recording. Get the full version if you know and love the original. (Live at Carnegie Hall (Import)).

1.0 out of 5 stars Oh dear how disappointing Jan. 10 2008
Format:Audio CD
I absolutely LOVED the 2 records of this original concert. To not have the complete recording is so disappointing I can hardly stand it. There is no reason to leave out so much important material.

By Ken
Format:Audio CD
Through the business, I was fortunate to obtain a third generation master copy on tape, originally way back, when I was a serious audiophile with a very high end system. The clean and low noise gave the feeling of being transported to the live performance. At that time I was also experimentally designing surround processes and used this performance to recreate the audience coming from the rear speakers as well as ambient reflections.

3.0 out of 5 stars Belafonte's Best, but Incomplete Work Oct. 4 2013
Format:Audio CD
A friend had this album 50 years ago. I was a kid and had no money to purchase the album then. I memorized all my favorite songs at the time, and now, when I am able to afford it, the tracks are scattered across other releases. Producers: get it right, or stay home.
My rating reflects the Producer's work, NOT Belafonte's ... which is always 5 Star *****

2.0 out of 5 stars Where's the beef... err, I mean songs? March 20 2003
By T.G.
Format:Audio CD
This is one reason (among many) why I dislike the record companies... if it ain't Brittney Spears, they can't be bothered to do a proper release, or keep it in print for very long. It's also a major reason why I recently bought a good turntable -- so much of the huge back-catalog of music from this time period remains locked up & rotting in record company vaults somewhere, probably never to see the light of the Compact Disc format. Also, the original records (pre-1980) often sound better because the master tapes were fresh when the LP's were pressed. I've heard too many CD "remasters" where some engineer tried removing tape hiss and ended up neutering the music (not saying this one, but in general...).
Somehow, the movie industry is getting it right with DVD's, but the music industry keeps on making the same blunders. *Please*, if it's going to be a chopped-up version of the original, don't bother releasing it at all. Today's generation of younger folks (among others) don't deserve to be treated this way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review is for import title. March 10 2003
Format:Audio CD
The 2cd import cd's are the original vinyl pressing from the sixties. Probably the only lp's my Dad played which I didn't get upset by ;-) I was a folk musician/fan at the time(still am) and this fell right in line with my taste.
