“Live at the Harlem Square Club” (1963) is the second live album by the American singer-songwriter Sam Cooke. Initially recorded to be released as a live album entitled “One Night Stand”, the concert at the Harlem Square club (in Miami’s historically African American neighborhood of Overtown) was not released until 1985. RCA Victor, at the time, viewed the album as too gritty and raw and possibly damaging to his pop image, and quietly kept the recordings in their archive. The album is generally considered among the best live albums by contemporary music critics, and has been ranked in “best-of” music lists, including on Rolling Stone’s list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
