Editorial Reviews

(5-CD LP-sized box set + 48 page book) These were George Jones' truly classic years. After more than a decade as one of country music's top stars, newfound maturity and soulfulness augmented what was already the greatest voice in country music. The six years from 1965 to 1971 that Jones spent on Musicor Records were marked by personal turmoil and unprecedented success, but through it all he kept minting one country standard after another. This is the first part of Bear Family's comprehensive two volume edition of Jones' complete Musicor recordings, covering all sessions from 1965 until mid-1967. Until now, the Musicor sides were randomly packaged and many were unavailable, but the two Bear Family boxes (plus one CD of duets with Gene Pitney available elsewhere on Bear Family) will tell the complete story. Here are the fabulous original albums, including his tribute to Dallas Frazier and the duet albums with Melba Montgomery, plus such all-time George Jones standards as Things Have Gone To Pieces, Love Bug, Take Me, I'm A People, Four-O-Thirty Three, and one of the greatest ever country classics, Walk Through This World With Me. It's all here in stunningly restored sound together with ten previously unissued recordings, including fabulous early versions of Love Bug and Take Me, recorded in Houston.

In all, this set includes 142 songs on five CDs, plus two complete sessions from Houston with false starts and alternate takes. In 1971, George Jones broke acrimoniously from Musicor's co-owner, Pappy Daily, who'd discovered and nurtured him, to join his new wife, Tammy Wynette, on Epic Records. The hits, of course, would continue, but George Jones would never sound as good again!

This set includes liner notes by Rich Kienzle and a complete discography by Don Roy, Kittra Moore, and Richard Weize.

Like at least one other reviewer I also consider G. Jones the finest country singer alive (or dead), so it's a huge relief to finally have this first collection of Jones' Musicor recordings, with the second also now available. I can't really comment about the sound, as I've mostly been listening in the car, but I wouldn't dismiss the listed opinion regarding the possibility of less-than-pristine master tapes from which Bear Family produced these CD's. In any case, the sound seems fine to me, without really anything to compare except for all those dubious Dutch and Spanish CD's of Musicor material, whose sound was sometimes awful. It seems to me that Bear Family has done the best (as they almost always do) with the source material(s) they have. I'm another one who is somewhat put off by the lukewarm sometimes condescending tone of Rich Kienzle in his notes. I've always enjoyed Kienzle's writing and I have great respect for his country music historical knowledge, but one significant aspect of George Jones' artistry has totally escaped Kienzle, and that is Jones' ability to elevate the material, to make a mediocre song good and a good song absolutely great. Come on, Rich! Calling "Flowers for Mama" "bathos-plagued," and complaining about Jones' recitation in the song?? Referring to "I Just Lost My Favorite Girl" as a "flat ballad?" Country Music was built on emotionally raw, maudlin songs like this and Jones proves his magnificence as a singer by carrying off these songs and many such others in this set. I hope no-one is discouraged from buying this set by my or any other review ... No one in country music history, and few other singers of any other genre can match the combination of raw emotion and assured grace which George Jones brings to a song. In terms of percentage, there is probably more good/great material here than on the UA set (also strongly recommended, nevertheless.)

I completely, totally! beg to differ with that off the wall negative review of this tremendous box set. That reviewer must have been reviewing the wrong box set, either that or his CD player must be worn out or broken. You ought to take that out immediately! I'm telling you folks, the sound quality on this 5 CD box set! Man! Is it ever out of this world! It is stupendous! I have been wanting to have Jones's Musicor works for years and finally! Bear have out done themselves with these 2 magnificent sets of his complete works with Musicor! I guess the highlight of this box set is on disc 5! I have been a life long fan of outtakes and studio chatter, and this 5th disc has a lot of that! It is just incredible! His first version of Walk Through This World With Me, in my opinion, is far better than the released version. In fact I played this song and sang it while my sweet friend was beside me and she started crying, and I did too. She's not what you might call a classic country fan, but hearing that song I think made her like it now! I sincerely hope Bear will do a set on George's works with Starday and Mercury. This set plus the A Good Year For The Roses set, are Highly, highly recommended!

About ten years ago I decided George Jones was the greatest vocalist of the 20th century. I set out to find every commercially released George Jones record. There were great compilations from the Mercury years, the United Artists years, and the Epic years. Strangely, the only Musicor stuff was available on budget CD's and cassettes. Even career-spanning retrospectives like Sony/Legacy's 2-CD best of and Rhino's 1-CD compilations only had 2 or 3 Musicor titles. Even George's "50 Years of Hits" compilation had zero Musicor titles.

Apparently, the notoriously eccentric Aubrey Mayhew owned the Musicor masters and wouldn't license them to anyone. He licensed his Starday and King holdings to everyone, but the Musicor stuff was strangely held back, except for the budget-line CD's and cassettes usually found in non-traditional retail outlets like truck stops.

I bought every single budget-line cassette and CD and put them together on CDR's. I then started discovering multitudes of Musicor LP's on ebay and other places and started buying those, along with Mercury, Starday, Epic, and United Artists LP's.

Why oh why wouldn't Bear Family or some other label do justice to George Jones' staggering body of work? Ernest Tubb, Hank Snow, dozens of others have seen their entire catalogues reissued by Bear Family and eased the minds (and wallets) of us country music fanatics. Now I think I have answers to all of my questions.

It pains me to type type this, having purchased dozens of Bear Family boxed sets and single disc sets, but the sound quality on this is awful. The latter half of the box sounds like they were transferring the songs from 7th or 8th generation tapes that had been sitting in a leaky 300 degree attic.

Georges voice has gone through many changes.The musicor years is his prime years in singing.Im so glad that Bear family got the master tapes and removed alot of the overdubbing that musicor had on a lot of georges lps and singels.
This is a dream that has come true.
This is what George Jones is all about

Anyone who invests in a box set like this is probably already a devoted fan of the artist and is familiar with, and already has, the better known material in the set. Such a fan, like myself, will still get their money's worth and more out of this set (and its companion set, "A Good Year for the Roses".) After listening to those two sets and the Bear Family box set of his recordings from his United Artists period, I have to believe that George Jones' greatness stems from the fact that his singing came naturally from somewhere within him. This is not to detract from the work he obviously put into his artistry, but I don't know how else an artist could have the energy to generate such an incredibly voluminous output at such a consistently high level. Sheer fatigue or boredom would at least occasionally overcome almost any other artist who recorded this much, but not the Possum. His music was obviously who he was and probably invigorated him. Of special interest in this box set are the many covers, often of hits that were fairly recent at the time by other artists. George's versions of these songs are fantastic. He doesn't reinvent these songs but simply sings them in his style, which makes them new and different and usually better than the original version. The original material that makes up the rest of the set is all up to George Jones standards as well, although I suspect some of these songs wouldn't sound so good if sung by a mere mortal. But if they were they would be in some other box set, not this one.
