Impex's
line of classic RCA Living Stereo releases now includes the inimitable vocal stylings of Harry Belafonte singing the timeless words and music of American blues in truly breathtaking sound. Available for the first time on 180g 45RPM 2LP, this definitve pressing was mastered by Kevin Gray, includes a historical essay insert and packaging, and is individually numbered and strictly limited to 2,500 pieces.

Belafonte Sings the Blues was recorded over four sessions during the first half of 1958, and released by RCA later that year. The album features thrilling performances of numerous Billie Holiday, Johnny Mercer, and Ray Charles songs, interpreted in a way that only Belafonte can. The blues are close to Belafonte's heart and it clearly shows here on his renditions of such classics as "One For My Baby", "Cotton Fields" and "God Bless the Child" among others!

"This reissue was mastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearant Audio and the 45 rpm set pressed at RTI in California. A few reissue companies have taken a stab at the RCA Living Stereo catalog, but this is the most successful execution yet. I was struck by how much more emotional impact this issue has. The two LPs are packaged in a handsome fold-out cover with lyrics inside the fold and an insert bio of Belafonte inside sleeve. Top recommendations!" - Dennis Davis, HiFi+ Magazine, January 2013
