Album Review

Here is yet another reissue of Jim Reeves' greatest hits. The 12-track Platinum & Gold Collection spotlights Jim Reeves' crossover recordings, some of which were the earliest in country music to be tagged with the term "Nashville Sound." Included are the Chet Atkins-produced hits "Is It Really Over?" "I Won't Come in While He's There," "Four Walls," and "He'll Have to Go."

While this is a decent, affordable disc, it leaves off too many of Reeves' classics to be definitive.
