THE GREAT JIM REEVES 8CD SET
The market is awash with Jim Reeves re-issues but, make no mistake, this 8CD set is not just another compilation. It aims to bring Jim’s legacy right up to date with no less than 92 overdubs among the 170 songs. These old tracks now sparkle with a new lustre, making them sound like Mr.Reeves just recorded them today. We have taken many of Jim’s most-loved songs as well as some rare recordings, stripped them down to get rid of surplus instrumentation and remastered his voice for greater clarity than ever before. We then combined his vocals with tasteful new accompaniment from world class musicians. The CDs are organized to cover a definitive range of Jim's music, starting with carefully selected material from his earliest days, through his evolution as a ballad singer to the smooth “Nashville Sound. ” Jim’s inspiring gospel songs and narrations have been revisited as well as his move in a pop direction. We have remastered much of Reeves’s famous Christmas album and his celebrated concerts in Oslo in 1964 and with the Nashville Symphony Orchestra. This set also includes a 34-minute wide-ranging interview with Jim that offers rare insights into his personality. Plus a fascinating 18,000 word 48 page booklet interspersed with many seldom seen & unpublished pictures.
