If you listened to that repeat of the BBC2 tribute to Jim, Mary can be heard saying that she wanted to give the people what they wanted, because Jim's music means so much to them. SHE WAS RIGHT. And it is the philosophy both Larry and I (and now Sara) have embraced.
Jim's music DOES touch countless lives, in so many ways. As Larry says, when he works with Jim's tracks, he is "working with the greatest singer in the world." What a privilege that is, and it's why he is so careful with how he showcases Mr. Reeves, as are the musicians who know that every note matters. I am not on the front lines of any of this music production but I hear little bits and pieces of conversations and know how dedicated the team is that Larry has assembled. Every single person wants to do their very best, and you can tell that by how marvelous it all sounds!
BTW, the surprises are not over. There will be word soon of a TV SPECIAL TO AIR YET THIS MONTH that is a tribute to Jim. In fact, it was taped this past weekend.
So keep checking the Fan Forum for more details and in the meantime, please help us promote these new CD and DVD releases by telling everybody you know who loves country music about them!
If you have a Facebook page, please post a link to my site (www.jim-reeves.com) and brag up the wonderful music to be found here. If they are not supported, they will come to an end. And there is still unheard music by Jim that fans should have a chance to hear! -- JULIE
