The Tokens - We The Tokens Sing Folk FLAC album

Complete your The Tokens collection.

Great Olympic Anthems Vol. 3.

When the Tokens say they sing folk, they must be referring to the songs, not the style - and even then it's a dubious claim. The minor hit "B'wanina (Pretty Girl)" is another exotic falsetto piece like their previous hit, "The Lion Sleeps Tonight," and "Monkey Vendor (Tumbili)" mixes more of the same with faux calypso. The Tokens were really just another pop/rock vocal group from Brooklyn until "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" went to number one and dictated their subsequent direction. Their attempt to revive "La Bomba" only a few years after Ritchie Valens made it a hit resulted in the album's second minor chart entry. A Boy Without a Girl" is not at all a folk song, and neither is "A Tale of Two Lovers," but producers Hugo & Luigi added some bongo drums for that vaguely ethnic touch.
