The Late, Late Show is the debut album of American Jazz singer Dakota Staton. The album was released on Capitol Records in 1957. The album contained Staton's greatest hit, "The Late, Late Show".


Allmusic critic Scott Yanow awarded the album with four and a half stars out of five saying:

"Singer Dakota Staton's first full-length album was one of her best. She had a hit with "The Late, Late Show" and performed memorable versions of "Broadway," "A Foggy Day," "What Do You See in Her," "My Funny Valentine" and "Mooney." Backed by a largely unidentified orchestra arranged by Van Alexander (with Hank Jones on piano), Staton sounds both youthful and mature, displaying a highly appealing voice on a near-classic set."
