JIM REEVES: THE NEW RECORDINGS (2 CDs, 144-minute documentary)
This 2-CD set, "JIM REEVES: THE NEW RECORDINGS," is a truly NEW (144 minute) documentary, that is based on Larry Jordan's new 672-page award-winning book, "Jim Reeves: His Untold Story." Narrated by Dan Hurst, it features more than 42 songs by Jim, including 20 NEW overdubs of studio masters fans have not heard before, 11 overdubs of NEW songs and alternate versions that made their debut on VoiceMasters CDs (that are now out of print and/or hard to get in the U.S.), revealing NEW interviews with Mr. Reeves that are making their debut here, NEW in-concert performances by Jim that have never been available, NEW material from his long-lost network radio show, and even a recording Jim made on his bus that until now has not been released.
Plus there is insightful commentary from author Larry Jordan.
EVEN IF you owned all the previous VM CDs, you'd still get over 112 minutes of NEW music/Jim conversation/and other narrative on these 2 superb CDs. Well worth the cost.
The highlight: Some of Jim's best songs have been stripped down, his voice digitally remastered for stunning clarity, and then combined with tasteful new instrumentation (using some of the most talented singers and musicians working today), to give them a fresh sound. You won't believe your ears! (For eg. the pretty duet with Barbi Franklin).
Enjoy a captivating and very honest portrait of Jim Reeves based on Jordan's 13-plus years of research, hundreds of interviews, and Jim's own diaries and private correspondence. Total of 86 tracks making it easy for you to access just the music!
