Bluegrass at Carnegie Hall is an album of studio recordings by the progressive bluegrass band Country Gentlemen, released in 1962 on the Starday label and reissued in 1988.[1] The only thing about this album that has anything to do with Carnegie Hall is the cover photo on the original Starday LP, showing the group on stage (not the photo on the right). Nevertheless, there are a lot of classic tunes on the album from the group's Starday era. As for the actual Carnegie Hall concert, there are six cuts on the Smithsonian Folkways CD "The Country Gentlemen: On the Road"(SFW40133), which include the fine dobro playing of Kenny Haddock.
