Given that voice, it’s hard to imagine any Jim Reeves collection, even the most rudimentary one, being without merit. This 16-track set, issued by Ireland’s Luxury Multimedia imprint, is no exception to that assumption. All of these cuts have appeared elsewhere; some of them appear to have been taken from some slightly faulty demo tapes, while others are full-blown studio productions. That said, the results are the same with all the cuts here, from well-known nuggets such as “Lonesome Waltz,” “I Heard a Heart Break Last Night,” and “In the Misty Moonlight” to the rare wonderfully sparse acoustic demo of “You’re Slippin’ Away from Me,” with only Reeves and his acoustic guitar. It's all smooth and reflective Nashville country-pop at its finest. An anomaly here is the inclusion of “Roving Gambler,” with its jaunty shuffling tempo that walks the line between country boogie and pop. This may not be the best place to start for those wondering about Reeves (the RCA greatest-hits collections are a better fit), but for the seasoned fan, this is a great second-tier collection that contains some inconspicuous choices.
