"The sound here, as mastered from the original 3-track masters by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound, is as fabulous as the music. The balance between Bennett and the orchestra is near perfect, with a lively sense of air, space and dynamic snap. The Columbia engineers captured Bennett's voice and the instruments with the relaxed naturalness they created on this stellar evening." — Music = 4.5/5; Sonics = 4.5/5 - Wayne Garcia, The Absolute Sound, July 2015.
"The original of this double LP set was a sonic spectacular that now sounds veiled and somewhat distant compared to this stupidly, insanely spectacular-sounding reissue cut for the first time from the edited original 3-track tape. Two recorders were utilized, probably either one for backup or for when reels were about to run out of tape. We know the reels were edited both because the complete concert was eventually issued on CD and because here, with the high resolution mastering and jet black backgrounds of the QRP pressing, you can better hear the edits-not that they distract from the proceedings." Music = 10/11; Sound = 11/11 - Michael Fremer, AnalogPlanet.com

Originally recorded in 1962, Tony Bennett at Carnegie Hall is a testament to Bennett's live vocal ability, writes AllMusic.com. Backed by the Ralph Sharon Orchestra, Bennett moves far beyond his standard musical catalogue.
Along with standards like "I Left My Heart in San Francisco" and "Just in Time," Bennett reached out to create great medleys such as "(I Like New York in June) How About You/April in Paris," that automatically become his as soon as they are performed. Altogether there are 28 tracks on the album. Most remarkable is the clarity of the recording of the concert. If not for the tremendous applause of the audience, you could swear that Bennett had recorded each track in the studio. A masterpiece!
