It wasn't the first live album ever made, but it was certainly the first to be a major financial and artistic success. It stayed on the best-selling album charts for over three years and remained in print until RCA discontinued pressing LPs. From the opening trumpet fanfare and brief orchestral overture to the epic 12-minute version of "Matilda" (which set a standard for audience participation), the album never lets up. It is exciting, poignant, thrilling, intimate, and at times, spontaneously hilarious.
Note that A-5 is attributed on label to "Hall Johnson" rather than "Paul Johnson" as on other issues. Reply Notify me Helpful. Just found the CD (6006-2-R) of this album and am SO glad I did, it saves me the work of streaming the disc to the computer etc. Only disappointment with the CD version is most of the banter between the audience and Harry has been deleted but that is recognizable because it would have meant two discs instead of one.

Belafonte: At Carnegie Hall" is a live recording of American singer-songwriter Harry Belafonte. The performances originally took place at Carnegie Hall in April 1959 to benefit education. The record was later nominated for Album of the Year at the 1961 Grammy Awards. Belafonte: At Carnegie Hall became one of the most successful live recordings of it's time, remaining on the best-selling albums chart for over three years. The granddaddy of all live albums, this double-LP set captured the excitement of a Harry Belafonte concert at the height of his popularity. Sampled from two consecutive performances of identical material, Belafonte at Carnegie Hall was an anomaly at a time when only comedy albums were recorded outside of the studio environment. It wasn't the first live album ever made, but it was certainly the first to be a major financial and artistic success.
