CD Reviews

The giant chained
Thomas Fox | Montreal, Canda | 10/29/2002
(3 out of 5 stars)

"A standard collection of Robeson recordings from the early thirties, when his voice was at its finest but before his social and political beliefs had influenced his singing. Several songs on this album were embarassments to Robeson in his later years, particularly "That's why darkies were born". Robeson's voice rings like a bell, but the sentiments are reprehensible. Robeson himself regreted recording these songs."
