 One of my guilty pleasures, this... I have two Reeves LPs which used to belong to my Dad - I keep them for sentimental reasons, more than anything - they're rarely on the turntable, put it that way. "Mexican Joe" was always my favourite one as a nipper (probably because it is quite a lively number) and I do retain a certain fondness for it...

I have always liked this song. I first heard it on Murray Kash's country & western programme.
At the time I bought the London LP with it on.
A few days ago the London single was listed on ebay. However it was withdrawn before the end of the auction.

 Jim Reeves’ first million seller made it’s appearance here as his second London single. The A-side extols the virtues of Mexican Joe, while the flip reveals a pedestrian performance by Jim of his own song, saved only by a steel guitar backing.
Jim hailed from Panola County, Texas and was born on August 20, 1924. College educated, he was forced to quit as a professional baseball pitcher for Houston Buffaloes through a leg injury. He was also a full-time radio announcer at one stage of his career. He started recording in 1945. Jim owned and operated two music companies and two radio stations, he also wrote songs and played guitar.
In 1961 the citizens of Henderson, Texas, saluted him with a Jim Reeves Day. He was killed in an air crash in his private plane on July 31, 1964. He was elected to the Country and Western Music Hall of Fame in 1967.
