Harry Belafonte, To Wish You A Merry Christmas (1958)
It was probably last year more than this year that I really developed a mini-obsession with Harry Belafonte, I had always listened to him – but only ever just a bit. Last year I got hooked, big time. That wonderful voice, so many great rhythms too and what a songbook! This year I purchased a Christmas album – this one – because I really don’t have many Christmas albums on vinyl. And if you’re going to have one – why not a Christmas album from one of the masters.
