never been a better singer than JIM REEVES! Now fans can hear
him sing these beautiful songs for the first time. NONE have
ever been issued anywhere before!
this wonderful new CD, he is at his peak, crooning in a style
all his own, but proving he could sing anything. Jim was in a
league with the greatest of balladiers, like Bing Crosby and
Reeves does it up velvet, backed by the Anita Kerr singers and
a group of top Nashville musicians headed by Owen Bradley. That's
right, not Chet Atkins -- Owen Bradley (Patsy Cline's producer)!
rich voice caresses a melody, and carries you along with the
song. You could listen to him forever without ever getting tired
of hearing him sing! He was truly one of a kind!
long-lost tracks are from Jim's network radio show, and have been digitally
remastered by some top West Coast audio engineers from original
masters for superb fidelity. Also hear Jim interact with other
members of the cast, enjoy performances by singers Dolores Watson,
Buddy Hall and the Anita Kerr quartet. Mr. Bradley leads a fine
22-piece orchestra and scores with some effervescent arrangements.
of these songs have been heard since they were originally broadcast on Jim's LIVE network
radio show. Hear Jim as he uses that warm, intimate voice of
his to "cover" hits by Pat Boone, Frank Sinatra, Jo
Stafford, Nat Cole and others! It's an EXCLUSIVE collection that will touch
your soul and remain in your heart forever...
includes a six page booklet with full color photos and reminisences
