Belafonte, Harry – “Mark Twain and Other Folk Favorites” – [RCA Records]

220px-Harry_Belafonte_-_Mark_Twain_and_other_Folk_Favorites

Belafonte keeps our attention with the skill of a true raconteur. These folk songs are classic and educational (I never knew the origin of the pseudonym “Mark Twain”). Read the liner notes to discover how Belafonte had to travel a tough path to success, largely due to his race. His honeyed voice is well suited to these songs, and his role is an amazing one in perpetuating the folk tradition.
