UPDATE AND A FAMILY PHOTO

I know many of you have bought previous CDs that Larry has produced, such as the "Divine Ms. Cline" which has 20 new overdubs of Patsy Cline masters, "Bing Crosby and Rosemary Clooney: The New Recordings," and now the latest 8 CD 50th anniversary commemorative set, "The Great Jim Reeves." The one thing all of these releases have in common is that aside from my husband being the producer, our daughter Sara Elizabeth Jordan has also been involved. She has done an outstanding job sequencing the tracks (which takes many hours and is A LOT more difficult than it would seem, as the CDs have to flow well. Music critics have universally praised how well these CDs are presented). It was also Sara's idea to re-issue the 5 CD special "Jim Reeves Show" collection based on Jim's ABN network program (a VoiceMasters exclusive that is still available on the opening page of my site, though in very limited quantities as we had a huge number of orders at Christmastime). |
But Sara has taken on a new role with the latest project, the 8 CD set, because she helped her dad research and write the 48-page booklet, "Songs & Recordings," that is included in this very elegant release. I have read the booklet and it's engrossing and will surely make it a lot more fun when you listen to the beautiful new Jim Reeves music. They wrote about every song on the set and tell some very interesting stories about them.
Sara graduated from a prestigious University a year ago, has degrees in American Studies and History, is part of Phi Theta Kappa and Omicron Delta Kappa Honor societies, her writing appears in three best-selling books currently on Amazon, and she is finishing a novella herself.
Larry is about to embark on a multi-media campaign (some would call it a BLITZ!) to promote the new CD set and his book, including over 200 interviews (that's not a misprint; I said 200) in Europe alone, and others planned stateside over the next several months. He also has been invited to be a guest for 40 minutes on a big Canadian station that programs country music and will take questions from callers. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. A lot of this is being coordinated with the PageTurner Books PR rep, Lisa Brown in conjunction with the re-launch of Larry's fabulous book, "Jim Reeves: His Untold Story." If you have an interview request, email her at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We're all so busy but I thought you might like to see a picture of Larry and Sara that I snapped tonight. Our daughter came home for a visit so it was a special occasion. Father and daughter have been doing a lot of Skyping and emailing in the course of working on these projects together, but we also see her every few weeks.
Those of you who ordered the new 8 CD set will be reading the booklet and enjoying the music very soon as orders are starting to ship this week! -- JULIE
