Before Harry Belafonte struck upon his iconic, multimillion-selling combination of calypso, folk, and pop, he briefly made a go of it as a more traditional crooner in the Bing Crosby/Mel Torme mold. THE EARLY YEARS AT CAPITOL RECORDS collects material from this era, and also includes the album SWINGIN' CALYPSOS by another early calypso star, the influential, if largely forgotten, Lord Flea. The unusual juxtaposition of Belafonte's ultra-smooth, orchestra-backed vocals on tracks such as "I Still Get a Thrill" and "Farewell To Arms" next to Lord Flea's gritty island party music serves to drive home the importance of Belafonte's later brand of genre-mixing genius.
