Two Original Albums!
Jim Reeves used a soft semi-crooning style suggestive of Eddy Arnold. Of all the country-pop singers of the late-50s and early-60s, Reeves had perhaps the greatest ability to appeal to popular audiences without losing his sense of country identity. Chet Atkins, who produced albums for Jim, said "a man like Jim Reeves is a rare find in the field of music because he has been a great in the country and western field, the pop field and in religious and inspirational music." This collection from Vinyl Passion gathers two rare 1962 Reeves' RCA albums including In Suid-Afrika recorded in South Africa with Floyd Kramer and Chet Atkins and The Country Side of Jim Reeves with Atkins at the production helm and standout fare like "Most of the Time" and "Yonder Comes a Sucker."
