Jim Reeves - Sings With Some Friends (1969)

James Travis "Jim" Reeves (August 20, 1923 – July 31, 1964) was an American country and popular music singer-songwriter.

With records charting from the 1950s to the 1980s, he became well known as a practitioner of the Nashville sound (a mixture of older country-style music with elements of popular music).

Known as "Gentleman Jim", his songs continued to chart for years after his death.
Reeves died in the crash of a private airplane. He is a member of both the Country Music and Texas Country Music Halls of Fame.
One thing the wife of a celebrity learns early is that, she must share her hushband with his public.

Being the wife of Jim Reeves was like this, with one small exception: Jim´s public were his friends.
Everywhere we went together there seemed to be a host of “Friends” waiting to greet us and remind me that Jim belonged to them, too.
I loved this continuous flow of affection for  Jim from his friends, and I often felt a glow from them to him when he would call some aspiring young singer up to the bandstand, announce his conviction that the performer would someday reach great heights and ask the newcomer to sing with him.
From time to time Jim recorded with “Friends” – many times as a group, as well as duets.
Remembering all those exciting years, the multitudes of “Friends”  and their excitement, brought such a feeling of nostalgia that I thought perhaps you would like to share a few of these magic moments with me.
Here are ten of them I hope you will enjoy
