Jimmy Reed at Carnegie Hall was the first blues album to truly cross over and influence a whole generation and continues to spread its influence today. Everyone from Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, The Yardbirds and countless others, were influenced by Jimmy Reed at Carnegie Hall. This album includes all of his greatest hits. Jimmy not only had hits on the R&B charts but also crossed over 11 times on Billboard's Hot 100, unheard of for a blues musician. This is not a live recording. Rather, Jimmy Reed recorded in Carnegie Hall the same set list he had performed there just a night or two previously.

Mastered at AcousTech by Kevin Gray and Steve Hoffman.

"Analogue Productions' cleanly pressed 45rpm version of Reed's most famous release is not the first audiophile edition. Mobile Fidelity released a fine-sounding gold disc in the '90s, and Audio Fidelity recently transferred it onto SACD. But there's magic lurking within these grooves that digital has never fully reproduced; the album has never sounded better. Reed's lazy rhythmic sway, loose-limbed strumming, and unmannered singing fill the soundstage...Guitar timbres teem with purity, and there's ample separation between Reed's elementary harmonica solos and Earl Phillips' rocking-chair percussion. While the album has never been a dynamic standout, it's hard to imagine a future incarnation getting more from the music." - Bob Gendron, The Absolute Sound, April/May 2005
