“Sings” by Jim Reeves - album review

features in: Album Chart of 1955Album Chart of the Decade: 1950s

TJR says

Having lost his star performer to RCA earlier in the year, Fabor Robison decided upon one last hurrah, rounding up Jim’s single sides from 1953 to 1954 therefore beating RCA to the punch with the debut Jim Reeves album. “Sings” was issued in November and featured all the hits which had established him in the country market in the past couple of years, including “Mexican Joe”, “Drinking Tequila”, “Penny Candy” and “The Wilder Your Heart Beats”. A sharp operator, Fabor relicensed his Jim Reeves recordings to RCA who repackaged them again with the “Bimbo” compilation LP in the autumn of 1956.
