Jim Reeves - The Complete Abbott Recordings, Plus (2014)


Country | Mp3 320 kbps | 3 CD | 491 Mb

July 31, 2014 marks the 50th anniversary of the tragic death of the legendary Jim Reeves. To mark the occasion, Bear Family is re- visiting Reeves’ early catalog with a definitive three CD set of all the recordings Gentleman Jim made prior to signing with RCA in 1955. This historic collection contains every surviving take – and even some partial takes – of his three year association with Fabor Robison’s Abbott Records. Not only is every Abbott performance included, but so are all surviving false starts and studio chatter, giving a much fuller picture of Jim Reeves in the recording studio – in all, nearly three-and-a-half hours of early Jim Reeves. In addition to the Abbott recordings, the collection also includes Reeves’ 1949 recordings for Macy’s and a handful of early 1950s demo recordings that trace his development leading into the Abbott era.
Heard alongside Reeves at his earthiest in this collection are a number of legendary musicians such as steel guitarists Bobby Garrett, Jimmy Day and Speedy West, pianist Floyd Cramer, fiddlers Big Red and Little Red Hayes and Harold Hensley, and many others. This is a must-have, not just for the Reeves fan but for any fan of classic country music. If you think you know Jim Reeves, think again.
