THE TWO JIMS - REEVES & DEAN...
As I type this, I haven't even watched the above clip - it's JIM REEVES on the JIMMY DEAN show. Jimmy Dean played WILLARD WHYTE in the JAMES BOND movie DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER. He's probably best known for that, as well as the song BIG BAD JOHN. Jim Reeves, of course, is best known as the finest balladeer of the 20th century. (Well, he is in my house.) Okay, let's watch the clip together.
Having now watched it and refreshed my memory, I've shown the first part of this (Jim singing WELCOME TO MY WORLD) on the blog before, but not the complete clip. Still, what a voice though, eh?
