The Universal, Timeless Gift

"Do you know someone who is a grump? or who needs cheering up? is recuperating? babysat your pets while you were on vacation? has been a great mentor or friend? how about someone you know living in another country?This CD is the perfect gift to give anyone. I have yet to meet someone who doesn't like the music on this CD. Whenever I play it, my guests stop talking and start grooving. Embedded in the music is a spirit of infectious happiness that reaches everyone.Songs on this CD can be classified in two categories: Just plain fun and melodious ballads - both types will have you humming all day long. Fun songs: Day-O, Sweetheart from Venezuela, Angelina, Jump in the Line, Matilda, Jump Down Spin Around, Man Smart (Woman Smarter)Melodious ballads: Jamaica Farewell, Kingston Market, Come Back LizaENJOY!"
Belafonte's Caribbean rhythms are as irresistable as ever.

"My dad bought Belafonte's Pure Gold LP in Jamaica in the sixties and we played it until it was completely worn out. I was delighted to see this music re-released on CD in 1992, so I could hear the buoyant rhythms of the Caribbean again. This is music that has not been dressed up in some studio; besides having great nostalgia value, it has a unique natural energy and vibrancy. Best songs: Day-O (of course), Kingston Market, Jump in the Line, Jump Down, Spin Around, and Jamaica Farewell. The urge to dance and/or sing along with these songs is irresistable."
Great Music, Poor Production

"This is a great CD with one glaring exception. The reproduction and manufacturing quality is mediocre. I find on listening to the CD that the sound is quite variable. Some songs are so soft that I have to turn up the volume; others are stronger, necessitating turning the volume back down. Terrific music marred by presentation."
