Critical reception and analysis[edit]

The audience was not watching two supertalented singing actresses cutting up and making fun at the country's premier temple of culture; they were watching two beloved icons trying — or perhaps pretending to try — to cut up.

— Playbill, [3]

The official website of Carnegie Hall asserted that this reprise of the Carnegie Hall concert confirmed that Julie and Carol had achieved a level of fame, success, and double-act after their 1962 show.[4] Playbill lamented that this show tried to mimic its predecessor.[5] Denton Record-Chronicle deemed the special "renowned".[6]

The show was nominated for the 1972 Emmy for Outstanding Single Program – Variety or Musical – Variety and Popular Music.
