Re: An Old Christmas Card
Martin, I would take issue with the Wally Whyton comment that if Jim had lived he "would have become an artist of immense stature." That is an inane statement. Jim had international stardom, had simultaneous hits in various foreign countries, is the only artist to have 34 charted hits AFTER his death, rode the British charts at #1 for five weeks at the height of the Beatles' popularity, made a movie in South Africa, etc. Why do people always have to "qualify" a compliment when they write about Reeves? The fact he is still being discovered by new generations of music fans without there being any big promotion behind him is a true phenomenon, and attests to his IMMENSE STATURE.
