50th ANNIVERSARY OF THE APRIL 1964 RCA EUROPEAN TOUR
Bear Family is commemorating the 50th anniversary of the April 1964 RCA European tour by Jim Reeves, Chet Atkins, Bobby Bare, and The Anita Kerr Singers with the re-promotion of the "NASHVILLE STARS ON TOUR" CD/DVD boxed set. It was released in 2007 and I was asked and supplied audio recordings and pictures from my own collection, and directed the producer to fan club members who had relevant pictorial material. The accompanyng book contained pictures and articles, previously unknown to fans.

Please notice, these three pictures have not been colorized from black & white originals.
