JIM REEVES AND THE BLUE BOYS
This picture shows the final members of the Blue Boys during Jim's life. It has been taken in the basement of Jim's house in Madison, probably a few months before Jim's death. Jim is sitting behind an organ which had protective clothing fitted to it. From left to right: Jimmy Orr, Leo Jackson, holding Jim's baby Martin guitar, Dean Manuel and Bud Logan.
