Calypso Carnival Medley: (with Ella Mitchell & Sivuca)

(Olga, Hold 'Em Joe, Cocoanut Woman, Man Smart, Zombie Jamboree,
Judy Drownded, Auntie Mary, Olga)
Notes: Drawn from a six-city cross-Canada tour during the summer of 1974.
Numbers from the latter part of the show are missing from the list.
It is worth noting that the medley uses "Olga" as theme and not the traditional 
"Don't Stop The Carnival." Also, "Auntie Mary" is non-abbreviated.
An unexpected and humorous twist: 
During Goin' Down Jordan, a song about salvation, Harry jumped into 
the audience to tease a few "sinners." He happened upon two nuns from 
Toronto's Loretta Abbey High School who only revealed their identifies 
following a prolonged ribbing session. Needless to say it broke up Belafonte
and brought down the house.
