Harry Belafonte : Belafonte at the Greek Theatre
Harry Belafonte : Belafonte at the Greek Theatre
By 1963, Harry Belafonte's live act had taken on the proportions of a theatrical event, tightly choreographed and rehearsed with elaborate production numbers. For a solid month during the summer of 1963, the act sold out Los Angeles' Greek Theatre, an open-air amphitheatre nestled in the Hollywood Hills. Fans who couldn't get in would climb trees surrounding the theatre to get a glimpse of the show (Belafonte may have coined the phrase "nosebleed section"). This live, double album, Belafonte's third, was edited from performances recorded during that month, and despite a nagging echo, captures the excitement of the concerts, which helped make the Greek world renowned.
