Re: CHRISTMAS IN JULY
I agree with Tom about "The Great Jim Reeves" 8-CD set. Every song in this set is a gem! I have to say that I even enjoyed the first disc of Jim's early recordings. They never sounded better than they do on this set, and in my opinion, Larry and Voicemasters picked the best of the best from this period. And if I'm praising the early songs this much, then you can imagine how much praise the rest of this set deserves! It truly sounds as if Jim just recorded each song yesterday, and the newly remastered sound, the great clarity in Jim's voice and the fantastic newly overdubbed music WILL make you feel as if you're hearing these songs for the first time, just as Julie says! I've listened to the entire set, and every track is a winner! The booklet by Larry and Sara is very enjoyable too! It's filled with lots of background info on each track in the set, and there are lots of great photos included too, some presented here for the first time! If you don't have this unique set, then you shouldn't wait another minute to order if you're a true Jim Reeves fan! A big thank you to Larry, Julie, Sara, all the great singers and musicians and the entire Voicemasters crew for giving Jim's releases the love and care his music truly deserves!
