The show begins starkly -- a male choir (featuring black men) is silhouetted
on platforms --
Belafonte's voice rings out loud and clear and unaccompanied:
=> "Look over yonder, hot sun turnin' over..."
That phrase born on the lips of the chain gang convict is now transplanted
from early crude field recordings to echo across the Hollywood
mountain sunsets....to a hundred thousand people:
BELAFONTE AT THE GREEK THEATRE
"Look Over Yonder/Be My Woman, Gal"
(RCA Victor Records) rel: 1963
ps: this is the same concert Harry Belafonte performed with his
choir (et al) at Montreal's Place Des Arts, in May 1963
"When you think I'm laughin'....
I'm laughin' just to keep from cryin'."
