  • A performance at Carnegie Hall means the pinnacle of a career for artists of all musical faiths. At the same time the gig in the big hall is a very hot chair, because just being good on this day wouldn't be good enough. The players do not only have to maintain their usual level - they have to surpass themselves. Harry Belafonte, the charismatic and experienced performer, has more than succeeded in doing this: over the years, the double album has been a long-running hit and top seller in the charts

    In the three-part dramaturgy of Afro-American moods, Caribbean songs and world music excursions, Belafonte celebrates his exciting, tingling singing festival in top form, including spontaneous situation comedy, which can only flash up in direct contact with a wide awake and electrified audience.

    Bob Corman and his 47-strong orchestra, which elastically purrs into a slender combo when the master raises his smoky voice, also step on the gas. Of course, all darlings like "Jamaica Farewell", "Day-O" and "Mama Look A Boo Boo" are also part of the party. You could say you're right in the middle of it, instead of just being there

    Recording: April 1959 live at Carnegie Hall, New York, by Bob Simpson Production: Bob Bollard

    Reviews

    "The man doesn't just let himself Matilda and Day-O, but also scores with regard to of his singing and the cheerful Basic atmosphere for pieces like 'Cotton Fields' or 'All My Trails'." (Good Times, October
    / November 2014)

    "Anyone who doesn't have these Carnegie sessions of Belafonte in their record closet should ... to strike. Because the alternatives are out of print or unaffordable, while the sound value offered by Speakers Corner is absolutely right." (Stereo,
    December 2014)

    "One of the best live records of all time. Period. And: a hi-fi event without equal. Thanks to Speakers Corner, the legendary Living Stereo recording with the famous catalogue number 6006 is finally available again in analog form and at a fair price." (Audio, April 2015)
