CD Reviews

A GREAT CD!!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Midnight Special is an album I was worried would never be turned into a CD. I am very happy my worries have been put to rest! The sound quality is outstanding. The first track, Midnight Special, has Bob Dylan playing harmonica. This music really show cases Belafonte's talent. On both Memphis, Tennessee and Makes A Long Time Man Feel Bad, Belafonte makes you feel the blues."
