The Most Romantic Jim Reeves Albums (The Theme on Rose and Moon),
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Moonlight And Roses/The Jim Reeves Way (Audio CD)
I don't really like 2 albums on 1 CD edition on any artist. Personally, I find it difficult to listen to the two CDs at the same time because the flow of one record to another is not always perfect. Sometimes, you also hear the difference in the singer's voice in the first record compared to the second. It's rather annoying.
But I must admit that this CD by Jim Reeves featuring Moonlight and Roses and The Jim Reeves Way is perfect. I can listen to it over and over again. I've always loved Moonlight and Roses record which covers the theme of roses and moonlight in the songs. It's one of the most romantic albums, I've ever heard by a country singer. He doesn't sound like a country singer in both of these albums...he sounds more like a romantic crooner or a balladeer! The second record "The Jim Reeves Way" is my parents' favourite because the ambient of this record is incredibly nostalgic and relaxing. It sits well alongside "Moonlight and Roses" album. You may not even notice the change in style unless you listen closely.
At the end of a hard day at work, if you put this record in, it will immediately calm you and nourish your soul with this incredibly warm and wonderful Jim Reeves voice like an oasis. He has a very good way of phrasing, diction and effortless style - he can sing any type of songs. You can hear every single word he sings.
