Belafonte At Carnegie Hall (Box Set) (Pre-Order)Belafonte At Carnegie Hall — The Complete Concert
5-LP Set Includes Bonus Tracks Previously Unavailable On Vinyl
Mastered By Ryan K. Smith At Sterling Sound From The Original 3-Track Analog Tapes
200-Gram LPs Cut At 45 RPM, Plating By Gary Salstrom, Pressing At Quality Record Pressings
45 RPM Custom Designed Slipcase Box
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.
We’ve 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 into 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 then 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 lets up!

The Many Moods of Belafonte (Out Of Stock)Presented For The First Time Ever On 45-RPM LP By Impex Records And Audio International In Germany

Harry Belafonte has always been a musical chameleon. Using a thick base of folk music, he added blues, soul, jazz, pop and a plethora of various Caribbean styles to create albums that were unique, socially relevant and just plain fun.
Nowhere is his broad, encompassing vision more in effect than on his 1962 release The Many Moods of Belafonte. From the Appalachian miner ballad "Dark as a Dungeon" through Hebrew lullaby "Lyla, Lyla" and even a Broadway ballad ("Try To Remember" from The Fantastiks), there's a little something for everyone. Belafonte himself seems inspired by these tunes, singing with gusto on the fun tracks and with reverential tact on the darker, more emotional material.
Impex Records now presents in association with Audio International in Germany The Many Moods of Belafonte in an exclusive all-analog 45-rpm 2-LP set. Cut by Kevin Gray from original analog tapes and pressed at RTI, every nuance of RCA's Bob Simpson big stage recording shines through your system.
