Re: "THE GREAT JIM REEVES" 8 CD, 50th Anniversery SET RELEASED!
I can tell you why that song wasn't included: Because Jim's voice uncharacteristically sounded frayed on some of the low notes. I don't know if he had been singing a lot that day but his voice was not in as good a shape as it normally was. Several of the musicians commented on it who worked on this project, so I as producer made the decision not to include it. Only "the best" songs are represented in this collection. It is surprising that Jim and RCA ever released a "take" that had his voice sounding so gravelly. I've wondered about that for years.
