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.
