After flirting with traditional African-American material in his previous albums, Belafonte, for the first time, devotes an entire album to the blues. However, of the eleven songs, only two could be classified as traditional blues: "In the Evenin' Mama" and "Cotton Fields," the latter given a five minute treatment. Belafonte would take this song on the road as part of his live act for the next decade. Of the other songs, three were covers of Ray Charles standards ("A Fool For You," "Hallelujah I Love Her So," "Mary Ann").

This collection features both the humour and romance of Harry Belafonte. Listen to "Man Piaba" for a 1950's Caribbean biology lesson and the infectious humour of "Mama, Look At Bubu". Contrast this with the beauty of "Gomen Nasai (Forgive Me)" and "Don't Ever Leave Me", this latter song composed by Lord Burgess, whose real name was Irving Burgie and Belafonte's co-writer on those early songs mentioned In 1962 Harry made a critically acclaimed album entitled "Midnight Special". This album featured the best of American folk tradition and also introduced a new young musician by the name of Bob Dylan. This album was the first ever-recorded appearance by Mr. Dylan and it is his harmonica that we hear on the title track featured here. This collection also features recordings of 1960s and 70's contemporary material. Paul Simon would be proud of Harry's interpretation of "Scarborough Fair", as would Neil Diamond with Harry's slightly more sympathetic version of "Mr. Bojangles". The humanitarian in Harry is eloquent in his reading of "Abraham, Martin and John".

Since Harry Belafonte and Miriam Makeba had appeared together in concert frequently in the early '60s, customers spying an LP called An Evening with Belafonte/Makeba might reasonably have assumed that the record would contain a joint live performance by the two, and that might help explain why this album charted in the Top 100 despite its challenging material. To begin with, it is not a live album, but rather a studio recording. And it isn't so much a duo album, for the most part, as a joint album; Belafonte and Makeba perform together on only two tracks, "Train Song" and "Cannon." Otherwise, they split up the selections, each appearing on five.

Belafonte was an established all-around entertainer and actor by the time of this album, so it could be seen in a sense as a return to "roots" styles. In any case, it's all-out calypso, with backing by the Trinidad Steel Band, and qualifies as one of his most energetic albums, even getting rambunctious at times.
