Inner Sleeve

Notes: A classic artist bringing us folk songs couched in soul, jazz, gospel and always with the light touch Belafonte brings to a room. His arrangements of songs such as Muleskinner and Midnight Special allow him to take ownership of the story and tell it in his voice. A striking front cover photo and the inner sleeve offers us the Midnight Special Songbook so that we too can "sing, play and dance to these songs: at parties, at informal gatherings, in the privacy of your own home" And as an added treat this record features a young Bob Dylan on harmonica. So pick up a copy, draw the curtains and give Harry a spin in, as they say, the privacy of your own home.
