Jim Reeves has racked up over forty top ten hits on the American country charts, and twenty five entries in the pop Hot 100. Jim chose his material well, but perhaps the secret of his success lay in the fact that he turned his back on many of the traditional trappings of country music. Jim kitted himself out in chic suits, his whole image was that of a sophisticated and stylish cabaret artist. Also, you were far more likely to find Reeves backed on his recordings by a full orchestra than by pedal steel guitars or fiddles. All of this made Jim Reeves possibly the first country star to ever cross over and gain a mainstream pop audience. This LP contains a goodly number of Gentleman Jim's finest moments among it's tracks, and apart from the hits, there are lesser-known gems that are well worth checking out. As such, it makes an excellent collection.
