Harry Belafonte "Belafonte at Carnegie Hall" (Vinyl)

Recorded in 1959 over two nights, these concerts were benefits for two different schools. The double-LP is divided into three acts: "Moods of the American Negro," "The Caribbean," and "'Round the World." Belafonte's voice is beautifully captured on this recording, as is his backing band which plays tightly, unobtrusively and creates the perfect bed for Harry to work his magic upon.
