4.0 out of 5 stars T'ain't live but it sure is classic Jimmy Reed! 15 July 2000
By J. Mark Sappenfield - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Collectable Records recently reissued JIMMMY REED AT CARNEGIE HALL a Vee-Jay album(VJLP 1035) originally released in 1961. The first eleven songs are a recreation of performance Jimmy Reed gave at the "Blues at Carnegie" series(per the liner notes). The liner notes state that the reason the recording could not be done at Carnegie Hall was due to "technical and contractural problems" so the album ended up being recorded at New York City's Bell Sound Studios. Some new tunes, at the time, were written for the Carnegie performance such as "Blue Carnegie"(instrumental) and "Blue, blue, blue." It also includes such Reed classics such as "Ah Shucks,Hush Your Mouth" and "Bright Lights Big City", the first song on the album. The twelve remaining cuts is a best of Jimmy Reed songsfest which are faithful rerecordings of his best known songs. "Take Out Some Insurance" is the only song not written by Jimmy Reed. Although it has the same feel as a Jimmy Reed song the liner notes state that he hated it. Though his singing is sometimes slurred and out of tune, the sound of the blows on his harmonica and his guitar, sometimes accompanied by Eddie Taylor on bass guitar, make his blues songs shine. This cd is a faithul reproduction of the lp including the ever present oval Vee-Jay oval on the front cover along with the original liner notes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jimmy Reed's hits from the original master tapes 27 July 2004
By Bradley Olson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This was Jimmy's best selling album ever but the title is very misleading in that these are all studio recordings, not live recordings, which means they weren't recorded at Carnegie Hall, but the tracks are in the order he performed them at a Carnegie Hall concert one week prior to recording the first dozen in the studio of this double album. This is actually the first time all of the original master tapes of this album were used as the songs recorded in mono were on all previous issues in rechanneled stereo while the true stereo tracks on this disc have always been in true stereo on every release. Steve Hoffman searched high and low for the first generation tapes of each song on the album in the Vee Jay vaults and as a result, Audio Fidelity has issued the definitive release of the album. Audiophiles and casual blues fans who like quality sound must pick up this issue of Jimmy Reed At Carnegie Hall as it contains most of his biggest hits in the best possible quality sound due to the work of Steve Hoffman.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Great Jimmy Reed! 27 Feb 2008
By Frederick J. Decker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Jimmy Reed recorded for the Vee-Jay label for most of his career. Vee-Jay has been out of business since the mid-1960's, and Jimmy Reed's catalogue has been in disrepair for years. This CD represents a great chance to hear Jimmy Reed at his wonderful best. Jimmy Reed was an established artist at the peak of his powers when this album was recorded. Another good choice would be "The Best Of Jimmy Reed" on the GNP label I believe.

"Carnegie Hall" is not a recording of a live performance. Jimmy Reed is playing previously recorded material in a recording studio. Jimmy Reed appeared at Carnegie Hall, and Vee-Jay wanted to capitalize on the prestigious name association. Amazon describes Jimmy Reed as selling more records than B. B. King in the 1950's. This is surely incorrect, even considering the unreliable accounting practices of independent record companies of the era. Don't be deterred. Jimmy Reed was a great artist, and this is a great album!

4.0 out of 5 stars CD version of a double album LP 12 Jan 2011
By Cynthia - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I had this double LP album years ago, as Jimmy Reed has always been a favorite. It has long since been lost in several moves, and many years. When I saw the CD on Amazon, I was elated to find that the original had been digitilized. However,the disappointing aspect of the CD product is that whomever remastered the original works, cut off some of the length of the different tracks....not all, but several, thus, cutting the songs short. I was very disappointed with this, but I'm assuming that because there were so many tracks on the double album, the engineers cut short these tracks in order to accomodate them on only one CD. Reed's work was fabulous, along with Mama Reed, his wife who harmonized with him, so I'm very happy to have this music back in my life. If you are a Reed fan, and familiar with the early works, just realize that not all of the original tracks contain their original length.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reed still strikes the chords 2 Jan 2011
By Saaber - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I first had this album when I was in high school...60's. I loved it then and love it even more now. His music still speaks of love lost, love gained, life's trials and triumphs as it did when it was recorded. Jimmy Reed is a blues great and this album is perhaps his greatest legacy.
