Live at the Harlem Square Club, 1963 is a live album by soul singer Sam Cooke. Bruce Eder of Allmusic writes "it's one of the greatest soul records ever cut by anybody, outshining James Brown's first live album from the Apollo Theater and easily outclassing Jackie Wilson's live record from the Copa." In 2003, the album was ranked number 443 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. The album appears in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.

Initially recorded to be released as a live album entitled One Night Stand, the concert was not released until 1985. It has since been released in two alternate mixes. In 2000, the album was included as the second half of disc four in the box set The Man Who Invented Soul.
