"When I was five years old, I heard my first phonograph recording. I was in the pasture, with a pet pig of mine, and was startled by the sound of music coming from the house. When I got there, there was this little suitcase looking concern on the porch, with a crank, and music was coming from it. I couldn`t understand how all those people could fit inside that little suitcase." - From the 1990 Whitestar Biography "Gentleman Jim Reeves: The Story Of A Legend" (Interview recorded in 1964)

 
 

Jim was only about five miles from the Nashville airport on July 31, 1964 when he ran into a severe thunderstorm. He had made contact with the Airport Tower Operator, who was trying to steer him around the storm. His last transmission to the tower was at 4:58 PM, when his plane disappeared off the radar screen. The wreckage wasn`t found until two days later, August 2.

 

In a survey taken by the BBC of the Top 100 songs of the 20th Century in the United Kingdom (which included all types of music- rock, pop, country, etc.) Jim`s version of "I Love You Because" was ranked #11.
