Editorial Reviews

2013 collection of classic tracks from the Country icon spanning the years 1962-66. On this compilation that focuses on his singles for the United Artists label, the diversity of the material is astounding. You hear Jones master all the flavors of vintage Country: lovelorn ballads, inspirational Gospel, uptempo honky-tonk, humorous novelty numbers, old-timey murder ballads and even holiday and Western songs. Right out of the box at UA, Jones hit the jackpot with his third chart-topper, 'She Thinks I Still Care' backed with the gorgeous ballad, 'Sometimes You Just Can't Win,' also a hit. Both sides of the plaintive single pointed the way to the kind of material that in Jones' hands would become his signature style, leading to such landmark recordings as 1980's 'He Stopped Loving Her Today.'

By the time that George Jones left Mercury and signed with United Artists in 1962 for his chart-topping "She Thinks I Still Care," he'd been steadily minting hits since his 1955 debut, "Why Baby Why." His two-and-a-half year run on UA produced sixteen singles, which the label managed to stretch over nearly five years of releases. All thirty-two sides - sixteen A's and their flips - are included here in their original mono. Jones continued to be a steady hit maker (sometimes charting both sides of a single), but he also had his share of misses and obscure B-sides. This set includes favorites like "You Comb Her Hair" and "The Race is On," but with so many singles over so many years, it's easy to have lost track of superb A-sides like the rockabilly-tinged "Beacon in the Night," the murder-suicide "Open Pit Mine," the up-tempo "Your Heart Turned Left (And I Was on the Right)" and the fiddle-and-twang shuffle "What's Money."

During these years, Jones and his producers tried a lot of things to see what would stick, recording honky-tonk, weepers, Westerns, gospel, Christmas songs and novelties, and they gave each one their all. The set features many fine B-sides, including the too-late realizations and broken hearts of "Big Fool of the Year," "I Saw Me" and "My Tears are Overdue," each one filled with Jones' inimitable vocal style. A handful of the flipsides charted, and in the case of the folk-styled "Where Does a Little Tear Come From," outperformed its plug-side. In addition to the solo work collected here, Jones also recorded memorable duets with Melba Montgomery. A full accounting of this work can be found on Bear Family's

I ordered this to fill a gap in my relatively small-- but certain-- collection of country music.

I took possession of it and was listening on the day I found out the great man had died. I didn't find out AS I was listening, but a few hours afterwards, which is spooky in itself.

Every song is a winner. The man was a giant.

I bought this cd mainly for one song - The Old, Old House. It was worth it! I have been trying to find this song for over 50 years. I heard the song from an LP that my uncle had back in the 60's when I was a kid, and it has haunted me ever since. All I could remember of the song was the last two lines of the chorus ("There's an old, old man who walks in the garden, And his head is bowed in memory"). I have looked and hoped for years that I would finally run across this song on a tape or cd, with no success until Bear Family came out with their Complete United Artist boxed set. But I wasn't ready to shell out the amount of money those sets cost just to get one song. Thank goodness, now I don't have to. And don't misunderstand, there are a lot of other good songs in this collection, but many of them are available in other collections and have been for sometime. Another great aspect of this collection is that it has 4 of George's best gospel songs from the 1962 Homecoming In Heaven album (available from Razor & Tie). All in all, a very good sample of George Jones' early 60's music.

What can you say about the possum. He had the voice that no one will ever be able to replace. He was and always will be King of Country Music.

What is not to love when George Jones sings. Love the songs and his phrasing on them. Glad to add this to my collection.

If you like George Jones, this is a great CD with all the music you'd expect it to have. The quality of the songs is good, and the person it was given to loves it. So glad they made this compilation.
