Glad you enjoyed the CD, It really is special -- much more so than most fans probably realize. I imagine some feel that "oh well, I've heard Jim sing these songs before." But they are wrong. |
These particular performances are very different (much better) than the RCA studio versions, and his voice is actually richer, unbelievably so. (He did not record them at Studio B). Because of these facts I felt the material deserved more polished accompaniment. (The originals were very plain). So I hired some of the best musicians I could find and we paired Jim's vocals with a big orchestra sound.
It truly is incredible how different this CD is than what you are used to hearing from Jim!
