I am thrilled to announce that, in conjunction with my book,  ("Jim Reeves: His Untold Story"), a NEW 2-CD (144 minute) documentary, "JIM REEVES: THE NEW RECORDINGS," has been released, featuring 42 songs by Jim, including 20 NEW overdubs of RCA masters, NEW overdubs of unreleased songs, NEW interviews with Jim you haven't heard before, plus commentary from me.

Narrated by Dan Hurst, (whose mellifluous voice has been heard promoting Disney, ESPN, Hallmark, Ford and Sprint), this new documentary traces the evolution of Jim Reeves from east Texas farm boy to world famous singing star. Like my book, it is a very honest look at this wonderful artist.

Some of Mr. Reeves' best RCA studio recordings have been stripped down to the bare essentials, his voice digitally remastered for better clarity, and then combined with tasteful new instrumentation to give them a sound as fresh as today! You won't believe your ears. There are a total of 86 tracks (including narration).

New recordings were done in studios ranging from Nashville to Atlanta, from the Carolina mountains to Europe, and feature some of the top musicians, orchestrators, background singers and engineers working today. This keepsake 2-CD set is priced at only $24.95 -- a real bargain! You can order the CDs alone, or as a combo with my book, for a big discount.

Believe me, the music is INCREDIBLE. I'm very proud of this release. There are some fun surprises for you, that showcase the talent and the life of the great "Gentleman Jim." I will be writing more on my blog in the days ahead to tell you about how this project was assembled, and show you some "behind the scenes" photos, so be sure to check visit my blog again soon.
