In Concert-Carnegie Hall is an album by American guitarist George Benson featuring a performance recorded at Carnegie Hall in 1975 and released on the CTI label.[1] The CD reissue added one bonus track and reordered the selections as presented in concert.


The Allmusic review states " this is a solid "live" effort with Benson cooking on all burners... In retrospect, listening to this record in the 21st century, it's difficult to imagine Benson making the switch from a classy guitar firebrand to a pop star so quickly".[2]
