All in Good Time
Straight forward, hard driving country music by a skilled and talented writer and vocalist. Jim is a laid back, soft spoken guy who lived around Barling and Ft. Smith, Arkansas for many years doing whatever it takes to make a living. He spends a lot of his time with his guitar writing country songs. He sent a tape to Axbar Records and two years later got a call from Joe Scates about having one of Axbar's artists record one of the songs on a new album. After some discussion on the phone, he asked about recording the song himself. Since he sounded good on the demo Scates said, 'Come on down to San Antonio and we'll get the Studio Band to work with you and see how it goes.' The sessions went well and everyone thought he should make a complete CD album. He laid a few music tracks at a studio in Ft Smith then he and wife, Margie, made another trip to San Antonio where Scates produced a 10 song album, on which Jim wrote seven of the 10 songs. One of the songs, 'Kiss Me Again in the Moonlight,' written by Joe Scates, went to Number 2 on the MP-3 Western Swing Charts.
