Complete Abbott Recordings
(Germany - Import, 3PC)
EU-only three CD collection released to coincide with the 50th Anniversary of the death of the Country great. This historic collection contains every surviving take - and even some partial takes - of his three year association with Fabor Robison's Abbott Records. Not only is every Abbott performance included, but so are all surviving false starts and studio chatter, giving a much fuller picture of Jim Reeves in the recording studio - in all, nearly three-and-a-half hours of early Jim Reeves. The set is enhanced with a 100 page book featuring rare and unpublished photos from the period. The project also contains much new discographical research into the Abbott era, shedding new light on many mysteries previously assumed to be unsolvable. In addition to the Abbott recordings, the collection also includes Reeves' 1949 recordings for Macy's and a handful of early 1950s demo recordings that trace his development leading into the Abbott era.
