In Concert at the Troubadour, 1969 is a live country rock album by Ricky Nelson recorded in Los Angeles during four dates at The Troubadour in late 1969. The album featured the debut of the Stone Canyon Band, which included Randy Meisner, Tom Brumley, Allen Kemp, and Patrick Shanahan, and was Nelson's highest-charting release in three years. The album contains four songs written by Nelson and three Bob Dylan compositions, as well as other songs by Eric Andersen and Tim Hardin. The performances were attended by many fellow musicians and songwriters.

In 2011, the British label Ace Records issued a remastered version of In Concert at the Troubadour on two compact discs with 30 bonus tracks and a booklet containing detailed information about the shows and songs that were recorded.
