Few artists would even dare attempt to cover the music of the legendary Jim Reeves, but country mainstay Charley Pride does so with admirable vocal prowess on A Tribute to Jim Reeves. Pride's rich, mellow tone captures the essence of the man that fans called "Gentleman Jim." A number of Reeves' hits are here, including his signature hit "He'll Have to Go," a successful pop crossover in Reeves' day. Perhaps this common pop crossover thread is why Pride is able to deliver such a convincing tribute; Pride himself is a crossover act. Besides a warming vocal performance, this album has an extraordinary instrumental arrangement going for it. The same soft, airy Nashville sound throughout closely matches original Reeves albums. When Charley Pride croons "Welcome to My World," it is clearly a world he shares, at least musically, with Jim Reeves. ~ Rick Cohoon
