MTV Unplugged is a live album by Tony Bennett that was released in 1994.

Rock stars Elvis Costello and k.d. lang made guest appearances.

The album reached platinum record status in the United States and won the 1995 Grammy Awards for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Performance and Album of the Year.

"Moonglow", also known as "Moonglow and Love" is a 1933 popular song. The music was by Will Hudson (1908–1981) and Irving Mills and the words were by Eddie DeLange.

"Moonglow" was first recorded by Joe Venuti and his orchestra in 1933, with subsequent recordings by Cab Calloway, Benny Goodman and his orchestra, Ethel Waters, and Art Tatum in 1934 and has since become a jazz standard, performed and recorded numerous times by a wide array of musical talents. The Benny Goodman Quartet with Teddy Wilson, Gene Krupa and Lionel Hampton made a famous version of the song in 1936, Artie Shaw recorded it in 1941, and Harry James recorded it in 1946 (released in 1950) on Columbia 38943.

Prominent vocalists who have recorded "Moonglow" include June Christy (1946), Billie Holiday (1952) and Sarah Vaughan (1962). A recording by George Cates and his Orchestra reached number four. The Coasters released a version on their 1960 album, One by One.
