    "Jim Reeves Sings" Mono LP Abbott 5001 (1956). "Gentleman Jim" was nearly 30 years old when he had his first hit, "Mexican Joe" on his first label, Abbott, in 1953. Over the next two years, he charted five more times on the Country charts, four of which went Top 10. Four of those hits can be found on his first album, the only one he recorded for Abbott before being signed away by RCA in 1955. Included here are "Mexican Joe", "Penny Candy", and "Drinking Tequila". After moving to RCA, he became one of Country's biggest stars, whose hits topped by the epic "He'll Have To Go" often crossed over to the Pop charts. He died tragically in a plane crash at the peak of his career, and has had an amazing 35 posthumous Country hits. The back cover has writing at the bottom right corner, a 1" x 1" slick tear at the same corner, and, at the top right corner, a sticker tear and stain. The record plays very nicely. Condition: VG 4/ NM 8. From the GRT Collection
