Hits Made Famous By Jim Reeves 
Sung By Slim Boyd

From the back cover: Reeves was a former member of the Grand Ole Opry. He gave up a promising baseball career to follow his first love, music. Reeves big hits – including Mexican Joe (1953), Bimbo (1953), Billy Bayou (1958), Four Walls (1957), Adios Amigo (1962) and He'll Have To Go (1959). Reeves has scored in the international market too. He has had number one records in Denmark, England and Sweden. Reeves had just returned from a rousing world tour when disaster struck. Jim Reeves was killed in the crash of a single engine plane August, 1964. Disaster had struck him down in the same fashion that the country music world has lost Patsy Cline, Cowboy Copas and Hawkshaw Hawkins.

  1. I've been trying to find a good rip of Margie Meinert's Crazy Calliope album. I found a post of you showcasing it, but there isn't a link to the audio. Would you have an audio rip of the album?


Howdy! Thanks for leaving your thoughts!
