Probably the most famous "Live" album of all time, this disc captures the excitement of a Harry Belafonte concert at the height of his popularity. A collection of Belafonte favorites recorded from two consecutive performances at Carnegie Hall this "Live" album was an anomaly at a time when only comedy albums were recorded outside of the studio environment. Although it wasn't the first live album ever made, but it was certainly the first to be a major financial and artistic success. From the opening trumpet fanfare and brief orchestral overture to the epic 12-minute version of "Matilda" (which set a standard for audience participation), this album never lets up. It is exciting, poignant, thrilling, intimate, and at times, spontaneously hilarious. Released on the high-resolution audiophile format known as XRCD, this CD is playable on all CD players.
