Jim Reeves at Christmas

All I Remember at Christmas...

Like everybody, my memories of Christmas are shaped by my parents bringing me up on certain things... Jim Reeves is what I remember most musically... every year the 'Jim Reeves 12 songs of Christmas' album of 1963 (arguably the best Christmas album ever) would come out and subsequently leave a stamp on my ears and senses forever more. It wasn't until in my late teens I would suddenly go back to Jim and find everything he ever sang, accepting him as a major influence.

From 'An Old Christmas Card' to 'The Merry Christmas Polka', it's all there in my head and ears :)

And so, here is my release, 'The Christmas Waltze'. Inspired by that Nashville sound of the late 50s, early 60s. Listen to the Jim Reeves 12 songs of Christmas
