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.
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.
My rating reflects the Producer's work, NOT Belafonte's ... which is always 5 Star *****
I particularly like the fact that Belafonte is in his prime and his is supported by excelent musicians.
If you can, focus on and isolate the drums and feel the interaction between the voice and percussions. They are perfect.
I also enjoy very much the introductions to songs and the audience participation in Matilda.
