The side of Jim Reeves that nobody knows! In the late 1950s and early 1960s, Gentleman Jim recorded many transcriptions for Country Music Time. Unavailable since the day they were aired, these shows reveal a different and rarely heard side of the legendary country balladeer. He's working with his own group in various settings, and performs his hits as well as songs that he rarely if ever tackled elsewhere. Here's the relaxed, informal Jim Reeves that fans remember best.
This 4-CD boxed set includes 117 titles. Not only are there rare versions of Jim Reeves classics like Am I Losing You, Yonder Comes A Sucker, According To My Heart, Anna Marie, Billy Bayou, Blue Boy, Bimbo, He'll Have To Go, and Four Walls, but Jim also performs songs from his albums and personal favorites like The Wind-Up, If Heartache Is The Fashion, Oklahoma Hills, Roly Poly, and Beyond A Shadow Of A Doubt.
In addition, Jim Reeves introduces fellow Nashville stars like Chet Atkins, Jean Shepard, Del Wood, Benny Martin, the Louvin Brothers, Stringbean, and Carl Butler .... plus of course his own
Blue Boys. As a final bonus, there's an interview with Jim Reeves conducted by dee-jay Don Davis.
