Velvet-voiced Jim Reeves was not only one of the world's most popular (and enduring) recording stars, he was one of the most fascinating. Now, in this truly intimate and scrupulously well-researched biography, (the Kindle version the equivalent of the 672-page printed book), author Larry Jordan sets the record straight, dispelling rumors and misinformation that have swirled around Reeves for decades. More than 11 years in the writing, this riveting bio is based on hundreds of interviews with the people who knew Jim best, as well as his personal diaries and private correspondence. Jordan's brisk, though richly detailed narrative style tells an engrossing story, taking you virtually day by day through Jim's life. There are many intriguing - even explosive - revelations here, in a portrait that is honest, though sometimes painful; poignant, yet full of good humor. More than 150 rare photos depict the private as well as public side of the unforgettable "Gentleman Jim." "Country Music People" magazine says "rarely can a book have been as eagerly awaited as Larry Jordan's 'Jim Reeves: His Untold Story...'" Billboard reports "Though the author is a Reeves fan, he didn't put the singer on a pedestal... The book is a balanced account of Reeves' life and career..."
