Stereo Concert is the Kingston Trio's second live album, released in 1959 (see 1959 in music). It was never released in monaural—unusual for a record release in 1959.

The original release was issued with the same cover as the group's debut album The Kingston Trio. It was recorded live on December 15, 1958, Liberty Hall, El Paso, TX. Additional material on the expanded CD reissue actually was recorded at the hungry i in San Francisco. The liner notes do not acknowledge this. [1]

The album was recorded by a private party and later purchased by Capitol for release.[2]

  • In 1997, all of the tracks from Stereo Concert were included in The Guard Years 10-CD box set issued by Bear Family Records.
  • Stereo Concert was reissued in 1994 on CD by Folk Era Records as Stereo Concert Plus which was originally released on LP in 1986.[3]
