Biography

GEORGE GLENN JONES was born in 1931 in the East Texas town of Saratoga. As a kid he sang for tips on the streets of nearby Beaumont. By age 24, he had been married twice, served in the Marines and was a veteran of the Texas honky-tonk circuit. On a recording session in 1955 for Starday Records, producer Pappy Dailey suggested he quit singing like his idols, Lefty Frizzell, Roy Acuff and Hank ... Read more in Amazon's George Jones Store

For just plain fun this one is the best.

All in all, "High-Tech Redneck" is an enjoyable listen for both old-school country music fans as well as modern ones.

when most critics like to point out how light-hearted and goofy the majority of his MCA years were, they're all thinking of this album and it's collection of great songs. how ironic is it that Jones took "High Tech Redneck" all the way to #24 on the charts {his highest charted solo song during the entire 1990s} but for some reason nobody likes it? this album shows that George Jones can sing 'new country' if he wants to. i have no gripe about this album and it's odd hearing him sing "Hello Darlin" in his own unique style after being raised on Conway Twitty's distinct approach to the song. George sounds like the George of the mid '70s on "Hello Darlin" and a lot of that has to do with the vocal delivery and the song's classic arrangement. "The Visit", a modest hit for Chad Brock seven years later, is more chilling with George's delivery. "I've Still Got Some Hurtin Left To Do" is the stand-out track. i also like "The Love in Your Eyes" because it reminds me of his 1978 hit "I'll Just Take It Out in Love". another song, "A Thousand Times a Day", was first first recorded on this CD before Patty Loveless had a hit with it in 1998. this is a great CD and the fact that it's named after a novelty song shouldn't distract you from buying it.

This is great country music; every song is very good. Especially good is "I've Still Got Some Hurting..."--wow! Along with I LIVED TO TELL IT ALL, this is George Jones' best work of the 80s and 90s.

My kind of C&W. This was released in 1993 and at only 31 minutes long contains absolutely no filler. Title cut is pretty funny.

This is probably the weakest George Jones album of the 90s. Some of the better ones include "Walls can fall", "It don't get any better than this", and "Cold hard truth". This one is just not up to the same standard. It is dedicated to the late Conway Twitty, hence the inclusion of "Hello Darlin'". Unfortunately, Jones doesn't do quite the job Conway did on the song. It's not that he does it badly; it's just that Conway Twitty did it perfectly. There really wasn't a need for a remake.
The same goes for "Silent Partners". Although not quite as well known, Waylon Jennings version of the song is quite a bit better. Unfortunately, that Jennings album ("Too Dumb for New York City, Too Ugly for LA") is now out of print.
Even with its flaws, a talent like George Jones isn't about to put out a truly bad album. There are a couple of gems here. "I've still got some hurtin' left to do" is an excellent song and the duet with Sammy Kershaw shows that Jones can still crank out the up-tempo tunes with the best of them.
When you have a voice like Jones, it's really just a matter of the song choices. This one is not up to his usual standard, but devoted Opossum fans will want it in their collections.

The title track of this excellent mid-nineties album is something a little different from George, poking fun at a redneck attempting to adjust to high technology. Some of George's fans may not like this track but they need not worry too much as the rest of the album is exactly what his fans expect from him.

The second song, I've still got some hurting to do, is a typical George Jones ballad that sets the tone for the rest of the album. Never bit a bullet like this - a duet with Sammy Kershaw - is particularly interesting. Sammy's voice is very similar to George's and some people felt the similarity was just too much. By recording with Sammy, George sent out a message that he approved of Sammy.

Some of these songs may be familiar to country fans already. Chad Brock covered The visit. Waylon Jennings was the first to record Silent partners - it can be found on his album Too dumb for New York City. Patty Loveless covered A thousand times a day - it appeared on her classic album, Trouble with the truth. The most famous song here is, of course, Hello Darling - a Conway Twitty classic.

So this is yet another brilliant album from George, who set the standard for male country singers and remains a huge influence to this day.

I absolutely love George Jones and I can't think of a single song I do not like. I listen to his songs every chance I get-especially when I do my scrapbooking and cardmaking.

As usual this is my husbands favorite singer and he could listen to him for hours. Most of the time while walking on a treadmill
