Today, April 23rd, is the anniversary of Jim Reeves being presented with a Gold Record for "He'll Have To Go," by Chet Atkins, who gave him the award on the Grand Ole Opry in 1960. The song eventually sold over 3 million copies.
The latest Jim Reeves CD release, "Jim Reeves: The Lost Recordings," contains audio of this award presentation, including Chet's remarks and Jim's comments afterward, in which he thanked people for this honor and then sang the song.
This historic audio had never been commercially released until "Lost Recordings" was issued. The CD also contains 32 tracks that have never been available before. It's a treasure trove of NEW performances by Jim.
