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.
