I try my best to always expand Jim Reeves knowledge to family, friends, co-workers and all.
I started a few threads a while back warning about Ken Burns documentary. I was right unfortunately.
I plan to make another posting in the near future with an epilogue to those postings after driving through the campus of Hampshire College recently, and noting how Burns educational back ground led to this lackluster work relying on others for content and not expanding the documentary to include many other influential artists of which Jim is the greatest.
When the student creates the course of study, and grades themselves, it leads to a lazy work ethic of which this Country Music Documentary is a prime example.
I still think efforts should be made to encourage PBS to do a Jim Reeves Documentary. Lord knows there is plenty of information out there that even a lazy Doucmentarian like Burns would appreciate.
Reeves contribution to County Music, the Nashville Sound, and the worldwide expansion of Country Music deserves it.
Sorry for the rant.
