    Great album from the late 1950's. A great reflection of what people were listening to! (The first album to sell over 1 million copies). Lil Wayne? Who cares! Another no talent punk who ripped off somebody else's music.

    Best pop I've heard in a long time. Every time I hear The Banana Boat Song, I always think of that scene in Beetlejuice....
  • Love this music

    By Quigza
    I'm biased. I grew up on Harry Belafonte. My dad would put the LP on the turn table and the whole family would dance to it. It really is a good album. Clever lyrics, good pop music with an island flavor that isn't reggae. <3
  • Not Just Great - Classic

    By CA_wavedancer
    This album was in my parents' collection and one that, as a child, I requested frequently. As an adult I find the songs even more enjoyable. This is a GREAT pop album that seems to get better with age. This is, in fact, a better collection of Belafonte songs than you will find on the Greatest Hits disc. Truly a remarkable album.
  • A Family Favorite

    By Greenharp
    I grew up to this music. My parents listened to this album during dinner when we lived in Panama. Later, my older sister would put this album on while we did our homework. She even made up a dance to "Come Back Liza." My favorite is "Jamaica Farewell" but "The Banana Boat Song" is alot of fun as well.
  • oh ya.. lol

  • Don't be a Jack-A*s and buy!!

    By oldblitzkid
    One of the most important and wonderful albums in the history of pop music. This is a classic that anybody with an interest in popular culture or music must have. It never bores and will appeal to the most cynic contemporary music lover, it is perfect!!
