Described by reviewers as "the quintessential Belafonte package," Belafonte at
Carnegie Hall captures the excitement of a Harry Belafonte concert at the height
of his popularity. What Analogue Productions has done with this 5LP box set
release exceeds other vinyl versions.
Analogue Productions has included the entire concert. The fifth disc in this
premium set includes tracks heretofore missing from prior editions due to space
limitations. They include Belafonte’s spoken introduction before launching into
the touching and tender "Scarlet Ribbons," followed by the orchestral overture.
What AllMusic.com describes as "The grandaddy of all live albums," was an
anomaly at a time when only comedy albums were recorded outside of the studio
environment. A major financial and artistic success, the live performance stayed
on the best-selling album charts for over three years and remained in print
until RCA discontinued pressing LPs.
The concert is divided in three sections: "Moods of the American Negro," "In The
Caribbean," and "Round The World." All the hits are here: "Day O," "Jamaica
Farewell," "Mama Look a Boo Boo," and others, plus calypso, folk songs, chain
gang songs, spirituals, and songs from other lands, representing a veritable
best-of package of Belafonte’s first decade with RCA Victor.
Wait no more if you haven’t heard this marvelous record. We’ve gone all out for
this deluxe reissue. Starting with premier mastering by Ryan K. Smith at
Sterling Sound from the original analog tapes. Then plating and pressing by Gary
Salstrom and the crew at Quality Record Pressings, where the finest quality LPs
in the world are pressed. But it doesn’t stop there: We’ve enhanced the original
studio photography and housed the collection in a custom-designed slipcase box.
Belafonte’s mastery in front of an audience was never better displayed than
here, a mastery that resulted in him becoming one of the most popular concert
draws in history. From the opening trumpet fanfare to the epic 12-minute version
of "Matilda" (which set a standard for audience participation), the album never
