Allmusic.com gave Blues at Carnegie Hall a 4 star review:

Blues at Carnegie Hall is a live Atlantic set from 1966, with the Modern Jazz Quartet performing eight blues-based compositions. In addition to such familiar pieces as the inevitable “Bags’ Groove,” “Ralph’s New Blues” (dedicated to jazz critic Ralph Gleason), and “The Cylinder,” there are a few newer pieces (including “Home,” which is similar to Lee Morgan’s hit “The Sidewinder”) included for variety. This predictable but consistently swinging set is particularly recommended to fans of vibraphonist Milt Jackson.

Every title ever issued by Mobile Fidelity is collectible in its own right; their pressings from 1978 through 1989 were pressed in Japan by JVC on their proprietary Super Vinyl, an exceptionally resilient, dead-quiet vinyl compound, with later issues pressed in the U.S. by RTI on 200 gram vinyl. These records were mastered at half speed; both the tape and the cutting lathe were run at half the normal speed, allowing the cutting head to cut a more accurate groove in the acetate. The finished product featured dead-quiet vinyl, with improved dynamics, better imaging, and tighter bass. By their very nature, all of Mobile Fidelity’s titles were limited-edition pressings, and Blues at Carnegie Hall was limited to an unknown quantity of numbered copies.
