I just received my copy and listened. I love it. As wonderful as some of his records made in Studio B were, and still are, I think I have decided that I like hearing him live in concert more than in studio. The concert with the Nashville Symphony is superb. I love the concert at Chambersburg, PA. I love hearing Jim talk to the audiences and to his band. The renditions of "I Love You Because" and "Adios Amigo" he did in Stockholm are the best I have heard him do. He seemed to have a bit more "bassey" sound on those songs than I have noticed before, even though the key might have been the same as in other renderings. And Jim really was at his best hitting those low notes. |
The only thing about the CD that I wish was improved was audio quality of the recording of Jim and the Lump Lump Boys. And I realize Larry had no control over that. I also wish there was a video of that because we don't get the full effect of the comedy just from the audio.
Overall, a very enjoyable CD that I am happy to have in my collection, and that I would recommend to any Jim Reeves fan.
