After church, I put the Gospel CD in my car player. I wanted to begin with it since several of you have said it is your favorite. When I arrived home I had listened to about half of it. I then put it on my home stereo and listened to the whole thing.
That might be the most beautiful thing I have ever heard. I listened to it while reading the booklet that came with the set, concentrating on the section of the book that dealt with the Gospel CD. I am very grateful to Larry and his daughter Sara for the booklet, which I just LOVED! More comments about the booklet to come in other posts.
Back to the music. Larry, what a beautiful job you and the arrangers, and the musicians did. I am tremendously impressed with your work. I especially loved the instrumentation on "It Is No Secret". I would love to see Stuart Hamblen's face when he hears that for the first time! Maybe I'll get to.
I have been a fanatic about Jim Reeves' voice since I first remember hearing it as a teen. I can say that I have never heard Jim sound better than he sounds on that CD.
If you have friends or family who are Christians, and who are not familiar with Jim's music, letting them hear this CD would be a great way to introduce them to The Great Jim Reeves.
