Jimmy Reed at Carnegie Hall is a double LP album by Jimmy Reed, released in 1961. Reed's recordings of "Bright Lights, Big City" and "Big Boss Man" were voted two of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll. Lefty Bates – guitar.
In several respects, this is a very strange album, though the music isn't strange at all and is in fact quite typical vintage Jimmy Reed. First, despite what the title might lead you to believe, this is not a live recording; all 23 of the tracks were done in the studio. Not only that, they weren't even performed at New York's famed venue Carnegie Hall, although producer Calvin Carter would later claim they were; instead, everything was cut elsewhere.
