About this copy: This copy of Belafonte at Carnegie Hall is a 1974 Japanese pressing of an album that was originally released in 1959.

The cover is VG+, with slight wear at the corners and edges.  The obi is VG++, with no tears, but a bit of foxing on the back.  The “hojyhuyo,” or reorder tag, is still attached.

This album was issued without an insert, as the gatefold cover contains a lyric booklet.

The discs are M- on sides 1, 3, and 4.  Side 2 is VG++, with an inaudible mark through one track (“Man Piaba.”)

A beautiful copy of a terrific (and great sounding) LP.

Background: Belafonte at Carnegie Hall, released in 1959, was the first major live album and the album that made Harry Belafonte a star.  It’s also a terrific recording and the album has long been revered by audiophiles.

Allmusic.com gave Belafonte at Carnegie Hall a 5 star review:

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. It stayed on the best-selling album charts for over three years and remained in print until RCA discontinued pressing LPs. … For sheer scope and genius of performance, this is the quintessential Belafonte package.
