“Jimmy Reed At Carnegie Hall” by Jimmy Reed - album review

TJR says

THIS IS NOT A LIVE ALBUM, despite Vee-Jay’s curveball title. It’s a double studio album, with the 11 tracks on the first record being all-new material, and the second being a “greatest hits” to date. It seems that Vee Jay were always trying to add (what was thought to be at the time) some desirable “spin” to the marketing (live being desirable back in the day). Also, the liner notes say that Record 2 “celebrates” Record 1’s “concert” by re-recording the big Reed hits thus far – it has subsequently been verified that they are, in fact, all originals. All that when all they had to do was say “here’s the new Jimmy Reed album with a bonus greatest hits disc”. Those crazy bad stars. My rating is based on the new album only i.e. the 11 tracks on Record 1.
