Notes:
In Person at Carnegie Hall was the seminal Irish folk group The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem's most successful album. It was recorded in Carnegie Hall on March 17, 1963 at their annual St. Patrick's Day concert. In the documentary, The Story of the Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem, Paddy Clancy said that this was the best album the group recorded. The album spent months on the American Top LPs chart and broke the top fifty albums in December 1963, an unprecedented occurrence for an Irish folk music recording at that time. It has never been out of print since its initial release.

Two songs on the album, "The Juice of the Barley" and "Oro Se Do Bheatha Bhaile," were recorded during their previous Carnegie Hall concert from November 3, 1962. When it was first released in late 1963, only around a third of the concert appeared on the record. In 2009, the Legacy Edition was released, which contained the complete recording of the concert including banter and song introductions. Princeton University professor of history, Sean Wilentz, wrote the liner notes for the new release.
