Jim Reeves & Others: The Jim Reeves Connection

1-CD with 28-page booklet, 31 tracks. Playing time approx. 80 mns.

Forty years ago, a small Beechcraft Bonanza private airplane plunged from the sky just short of its destination: Nashville airport. Both occupants of the plane were killed. One of them was Jim Reeves, the other was  his pianist, Dean Manuel.

Jim Reeves was a true anomaly. He grew up in Texas in the 1920s and ‘30s, but didn’t sing western swing or Texas beer joint music. Instead, he sang smooth and sweet country music and country-flavored pop music, thereby pioneering the Nashville Sound. When nearly all his contemporaries were trying to rock 'n' roll, Jim Reeves had the courage to go low and slow. His big hit, Four Walls, was not only a great record, but a groundbreaking one. Most of what happened in country music in the late '50s and '60s took its cue from that one record. For many years, Jim Reeves was the only country artist selling overseas, especially in Europe, so it’s only fitting that Bear Family should comprehensively celebrate his life and work.

We truly have something for every Jim Reeves fan … from the most dedicated to someone who’s just beginning to wonder what the fuss is about. Sooner or later, you’ll want it all, so here’s a guide to Gentleman Jim Reeves on Bear Family:

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.
