Jackie Wilson At The Copa is the only live album by Jackie Wilson that I know about.
It was recorded at the Copacabana in New York and released in 1962.
While I think of Jackie Wilson as a soul and R&B artist, this album seems to be close to the light jazz/lounge category. Like Sam Cooke when he performed at the Copa, I suspect that Jackie Wilson eased up on his performance for the audience.

As you can see, what has happened is the medleys have been separated which could reduce the natural flow of the album. Some people hate the short breaks between tracks that you can hear on some live CDs.
