It has been a pretty traumatic and tumultuous week so how better to celebrate it's conclusion than with the dulcet tones of Gentleman Jim himself - Mr Jim Reeves
On RCA Victor from 1963 according to the sleevenotes he has never sounded better than this appealing collection of ballads. It is so smooth, sentimental and dreamy that one wishes this man Reeves would just sing on and on and on.
If a charity shop stocks vinyl records it is a physical impossibility that there won't be at least one by Gentleman Jim.
This is one of two I liberated from a charity shop in St Andrews.The other may well feature further down the line.
