The Great Jim Reeves/Barbi Franklin - How's The World Treating You 2:24
THIS 8-CD SET CONTAINS A LOT OF NEW MUSIC. IT IS *NOT* another compilation of "greatest hits." In "The Great Jim Reeves," many of Mr. Reeves' best-loved songs as well as some obscure recordings that will be new to you, have been stripped down to get rid of some of the original instrumentation and Jim's voice has been remastered for greater clarity than ever before. His vocals were then combined with tasteful new accompaniment, consistent with his own preferences. By using some of the world's top musicians, background singers and orchestrators, (including current members of the Grand Ole Opry band), these old tracks sparkle with a rich new luster, making them sound like Mr. Reeves just recorded them today! (Of the more than 170 tracks, there are 92 songs with new musical backings for a fresh, compelling sound!) "

The Great Jim Reeves" 8-CD set comes in a handsome, unique, silver-trimmed and high-gloss durable case which opens like a book. The track listings are displayed on two panels which then fold open to reveal all 8 CDs in convenient storage pockets. There is also a separate 48-page booklet inside called "Songs & Recordings" (running about 18,000 words!) in which Larry Jordan (author of the award-winning, 672-page book, "Jim Reeves: His Untold Story"), provides fascinating and detailed notes on each song. Even if you have purchased everything that VoiceMasters and/or H&H Music have released on Jim in the past, there are still 42 NEW OVERDUBS contained in "The Great Jim Reeves" that you have never heard before and are released here for the FIRST TIME.
