An Excellent Study of Jim Reeves and His Era
on March 14, 2015
First of all, I am a reader on the go, so the Kindle app for this book is absolutely perfect for me. In addition to owning a Kindle device, I have the app on my phone so my reading time can be flexible.
In all actuality, I have not completed reading this book but I was still compelled to say something in regards to its high quality. It is well written and without a doubt, thoroughly researched. The author's narrative is most engaging and, clearly, Larry Jordan, took pains to corroborate the massive details. For instance, did you know that Jim recorded songs in South Africa that have never been heard? Is it possible that the plane crash investigation could have been compromised due to a mysterious brief case that was on board? Those items are just the tip of the iceberg.
I will certainly update this review but the point that I wish to get across is this biography is simply a fascinating read. With 672 pages, it is not just a biography but a valuable reference tool as well. Larry Jordan's book is an excellent study of Jim Reeves and the golden era of country music.
