Jim and 'Born Free'

Here where I live in the UK our local radio station has a daily 'sixties at six' hour playing many of the greats of pop. On a Thursday the D.J. has a 'Jim Reeves spot' within that hour playing one or more tracks. However, on one occasion the D.J. said "lay back, close your eyes, and imagine this track by Jim Reeves" and through the speakers came the soft mellow tones of another great artist, Matt Monro, and the song? - "Born Free".
Looking back now I could just imagine the way Jim would have done this song. It would have been tailor made for him.
I dont know when this song appeared in the 1960's, maybe after Jim's passing. Along with another song "If The Whole World Stopped Loving" I feel that Jim would have loved these.
