Jim Reeves performed on stage in Oslo, Norway, in April 1964, some three months before he and his piano player Dean Manuel were killed in a single engine plane crash.
Reeves played at the sports arena Njårdhallen with Bobby Bare, Chet Atkins, the Blue Boys and the Anita Kerr Singers.
They performed two concerts; the second was televised and recorded by the Norwegian network NRK (Norsk Rikskringkasting, the only one in Norway at the time).
