  • $15.00


Until Jim McReynolds’ untimely death on New Year’s eve 2002, Jim & Jesse fronted one of the top groups in Bluegrass music. Much of their most memorable work appeared on the Capitol, Starday and Epic labels, and happily most of those recordings remain available on CD today. This 28-track disc—dubbed as a “Special Edition” is actually the same record that was originally issued as a double LP set in 1980, and has been available on CD (CMH-9022) at least until recently. Designed as a retrospective collection, the set presents new versions of some of their great songs from the earlier days, such as MY LITTLE HONEYSUCKLE ROSE, A MEMORY OF YOU, BORDER RIDE, THE FLAME OF LOVE, DRIFTING & DREAMING and ARE YOU MISSING ME, plus two lovely Don McHan songs, GRAVE IN THE VALLEY and LET ME WHISPER. There are also good cuts of PARADISE and DIESEL ON MY TAIL, and some songs that they never recorded previously (I WANT TO BE LOVED, REMEMBER ME, MIDNIGHT TRAIN, etc.). As an enticement to fans who might need to replace or upgrade their copy of this set, CMH has added 4 bonus tracks including the very nice ARE YOU TIRED OF ME MY DARLING and THOSE BROWN EYES, along with RIDER IN THE RAIN and WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE. What makes this a special record is the parade of excellent sidemen, almost all of whom worked in Jim & Jesse’s band over the years. We’re talking about Allen Shelton, Bobby Thompson, Vic Jordan and Carl Jackson on banjos, and Blaine Sprouse and Jimmy Buchanan on fiddle, among others. A fine set.
