In his 672-page, award-winning book, "Jim Reeves: His Untold Story," Larry Jordan devotes two chapters to this subject, with a gripping, minute by minute account of the events leading up to and following this tragedy, including facts gleaned from the long-lost accident report. There are MANY revelations, a lot of heretofore unknown details, and SOME INTRIGUING AND DISTURBING MYSTERIES remaining about the crash and its aftermath. These chapters by Larry have also been reproduced in two other books, including one by David Wayne and famed Richard Belzer.
Today I urge you to light a candle in honor of Jim and Dean and reflect on the wonderful music these two men brought us, which is still with us today. In fact, thanks to Larry's and VoiceMasters' efforts, new material by Jim is still being discovered and made available to the fans worldwide.
Don't forget the penultimate release, the 8 CD "The Great Jim Reeves," which has 170+ tracks, including 92 overdubs (many of them new), an extended interview with Jim, songs you never heard him sing before, plus a colorful, 48-page booklet describing each song. This beautifully packaged set (that is presented in a DVD-style case trimmed in silver), is a keepsake that famed singers Daniel O'Donnell and Mary Duff have been promoting on TV. You can hear samples and order your copy for only $49.95 (that's only 23 cents a song!) at: http://www.greatjimreeves.com
The latest release, "Jim Reeves: The New Gospel Recordings" is holding steady at #2 on the Amazon best-selling Southern Gospel Music Chart; it's #8 in Christian Country and Bluegrass, and it's #12 in Gospel music generally. All of this is astonishing after just three days being listed on Amazon.
