Live at the Royal Albert Hall is a 1972 double-album by British pop group The New Seekers. The album was released in November, having been recorded some months earlier.[1]

No singles were released from the album, although a new (studio) single was released at the same time, "Come Softly To Me". The album failed to chart in the UK, their first album for two years not to do so. The album was released in a gatefold sleeve and included a cardboard 3D model of the group on stage.

In the US, the album was released in 1973 as a single-disc compilation, reducing the number of tracks from 22 to 11. It was re-titled The History of the New Seekers and released on MGM Records.[2]
