This smear campaign has gone on for many years and is very tiresome so Julie and I don't comment on most of it, but the petty jealousy evident in trying to downplay and distort the tremendous sales success of the latest Jim Reeves gospel CD was really sickening. To even attack a RELIGIOUS MUSIC RELEASE shows you the black hearts these individuals have.
The amount of misinformation they have conveyed to the fans about Jim over the years would fill volumes. In fact, it DID, as scrapbooks of old fan club newsletters are replete with crazy stories, wrong information and empty speculation. And don't forget, Mary Reeves first embraced, then distanced herself from, the UK fan club after an incident that occurred at her office when its president visited her.
And a big California collector of Reeves memorabilia used to tease Mary by mentioning the Holland guy's name to her, whereupon it would send her off in fits of laughter and disdainful comments because she had opened her home to him and then he had held her up to public ridicule by writing nasty letters to the editor of country music magazines, as well as asking her questions she regarded as offensively personal. She DETESTED him, as even Joyce would confirm.
Newcomers on the scene don't know this history, but we do.
