DID YOU KNOW THAT RAY WINKLER, CO-WRITER OF "WELCOME TO MY WORLD" RELEASED A TRIBUTE SINGLE TO JIM IN 1970 ON THE STARTIME LABEL? HE WROTE TO DAVID BUSSEY AT THE TIME SEEKING ASSISTANCE.
 

The single released on the independent  STARTIME RECORDS (S-105) featured  "MY TRIBUTE TO JIM REEVES" as its  A side - a recitation written  & spoken by Ray, underscored by a tasteful instrumental version of  "WELCOME TO MY WORLD."

The B side featured just the backing track. Unfortunately Ray failed to achieve a UK release for the single.
