"THE GREAT JIM REEVES" 8-CD SET
THIS 8 CD SET CONTAINS A LOT OF NEW MUSIC. In "The Great Jim Reeves," VoiceMasters — which has premiered so many NEW and previously unreleased songs by Jim — and producer Larry Jordan, have taken many of Mr. Reeves' best-loved songs as well as some obscure recordings that will be new to you, stripped them down to get rid of some of the original instrumentation and remastered Jim's voice for greater clarity than ever before. His vocals were then combined with tasteful new accompaniment. By using some of the world's top musicians, background singers and orchestrators, (including current members of the Grand Ole Opry band), these old tracks sparkle with a rich new luster, making them sound like Mr. Reeves just recorded them today! (Of the more than 170 tracks, there are 92 songs with new musical backings for a fresh sound!)
"The Great Jim Reeves" 8-CD set comes in a handsome, unique, silver-trimmed and high-gloss durable case which opens like a book. The track listings are displayed on two panels which then fold open to reveal all 8 CDs in convenient storage pockets. There's also a 48-pg booklet inside called "Songs & Recordings" (18,000 words!) in which Larry Jordan (author of the award-winning, 672-page book, "Jim Reeves: His Untold Story"), provides fascinating notes on each song. Even if you have purchased everything that VM and/or H&H have released on Jim in the past, there are still 42 NEW OVERDUBS contained in "The Great Jim Reeves" of RCA masters that you've never heard before and are released here for the first time. Two songs made EU Top Ten July 2014, including a #1! Billboard and Country Music People have lavished praise on this set!
David Allan, writing in Country Music People magazine, says that "The production is contemporary, technically impressive and hugely enjoyable. It really is quite extraordinary, and at times breathtaking, how [the producer] brought Jim Reeves up to date without losing the unique Reeves appeal."
So this is no mere "compilation" of the same old tracks.
Producer Larry Jordan used 31 pro musicians, (including current members of the Grand Ole Opry band), plus people from Atlanta, the Carolinas and Europe -- to overdub new music. Jim's voice was also remastered by one of the top engineers in the country, and sounds so rich and clear it's as if Jim just recorded these songs yesterday.
Famed singers Daniel O'Donnell (who has sold 12 million recordings) and his singing partner, Mary Duff, are even appearing in TV commercials to promote the 8 CD set. View this below. (But you can order on THIS PAGE and do not need to go to the website mentioned unless you want to).
