The Jim and Jesse Story: 24 Greatest Hits
Genres: Country, Pop
Remakes Are Not Really "Greatest Hits" But "Plays Favorites"

"This CD features a generous selection of songs but the phrase "greatest hits" is misleading; these are not Jim and Jesse and the Virginia Boys' original Capitol, Starday, Columbia, and Epic recordings. These CMH recordings date from the late 1970s and/or early 1980s. That's not to say they are bad, but it can be argued that the remakes here are inferior to Jim and Jesse and the Virginia Boys' recordings of the 1950s and 1960s."
Irreplacable gentlemen of Bluegrass, Do not miss this CD

"When John Prine wrote "Paradise" he had the echos of Jim and Jesse in his head singing it in classic family harmony. Listen to this CD, and walk with your memories down a lane to a better time when brothers sang and rode bicycles, and drove their first compact cars, and Jim and Jesse immortalized the terror of driving one with a "Diesel on my Tail." Reverently in homage they harmonize with "Swing Low Sweet Chariot."---When we all sat around on the porch and played our Gibsons, and Martins, and Dobros, this is how we wished we could have ended up sounding like. With family tradgedy close to these brothers, one can feel as well as hear true emotion entwinded in their voices---just buy this CD and listen to REAL brothers singing REAL music, what a treat for your ears. You will play this CD over and over."
