Jim Reeves: The Complete Abbott Recordings, plus (3-CD)

3-CD Mini-Box (CD-format) with c. 100-page booklet, 76 tracks. Total playing time approx. 205 mns.

•    For the first time ever the early Jim Reeves sessions are correctly documented.
•    East Texas Country Music expert Kevin Coffey reviewed the original session tapes with the help of DavidBussey.
•    Coffey also interviewed many of the original musicians.
•    Additional information were supplied by Arie den Dulk.
•    76 tracks in all – nearly three-and-a-half hours of early Jim Reeves!
•    The accompanying booklet features many rare photos of Reeves and the musicians.

July 31, 2014 marks the 50th anniversary of the tragic death of the legendary Jim Reeves. To mark the occasion, Bear Family is re- visiting Reeves’ early catalog with a definitive three CD set of all the recordings Gentleman Jim made prior to signing with RCA in 1955. This historic collection contains every surviving take – and even some partial takes – of his three year association with Fabor Robison’s Abbott Records. Not only is every Abbott performance included, but so are all surviving false starts and studio chatter, giving a much fuller picture of Jim Reeves in the recording studio – in all, nearly three-and-a-half hours of early Jim Reeves. The set is enhanced with an app. 100-page book featuring rare and unpublished photos from the period.
The project, overseen by veteran Reeves expert David Bussey, also contains much new discographical research into the Abbott era, shedding new light on many mysteries previously assumed to be unsolvable. In addition to the Abbott recordings, the collection also includes Reeves’ 1949 recordings for Macy’s and a handful of early 1950s demo recordings that trace his development leading into the Abbott era.
Heard alongside Reeves at his earthiest in this collection are a number of legendary musicians such as steel guitarists Bobby Garrett, Jimmy Day and Speedy West, pianist Floyd Cramer, fiddlers Big Red and Little Red Hayes and Harold Hensley, and many others. This is a must-have, not just for the Reeves fan but for any fan of classic country music. If you think you know Jim Reeves, think again.

Jim Reeves

Geb. 20. 8. 1923 in Galloway - Panola County - Texas
Gest. 31. 7. 1964
Record Labels: Macy, Abbott, Fabor, RCA, London, CMF
Erster No. 1 Hit: Mexican Joe (1953)

James Travis Reeves, in frühester Jugend von Jimmie Rodgers beeinflusst, besuchte die Universität, arbeitete als D.J. bei diversen Radiostationen und landete schließlich als Ansager bei der Louisiana Hayride Show in Shreveport, wo er ab und zu auch einmal vertretungsweise singen durfte. Dort wurde er von dem Schallplattenboss Fabor Robinson entdeckt und unter Vertrag genommen. Zuvor hatte er schon einmal für das Kaufhaus-Label „Macy“ zwei Singles eingespielt. Schon Jim Reeves” zweite Single für Abbott Records wurde ein No. 1 Hit, und damit hatte er es auch schon geschafft. Er wurde mitsamt seinem bisher eingespielten Material für Abbott von der RCA übernommen und zum Weltstar gemacht. Seine samtweiche Stimme eignete sich vorzüglich für jenen Pop-Country-Sound, der unter der Bezeichnung „Nashville Sound“ damals in den 50erJahren gerade in Mode kam.

Jim Reeves wurde einer der größten Stars der 50er und 60er Jahre mit unzähligen Hits, die auch zum Teil in den Pop Charts erfolgreich waren. 1955 schon war er Mitglied der Grand Ole Opry geworden. Große Tourneen führten ihn um die ganze Welt. Dann, auf dem Höhepunkt seiner glanzvollen Karriere, kam Jim Reeves bei einem Flugzeugunglück um's Leben. Die kleine Maschine war auf dem Flug von Arkansas nach Nashville an einem trüben, regnerischen Tag kurz vor der Landung in den Hügeln von Tennessee zerschellt. Jim Reeves und sein Manager konnten nur noch tot geborgen werden.
