CD Reviews

Honky tonk at its best
Gavin Mack | Carlsbad, NM | 04/25/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"There's a lot of different George Jones's in his career, but the one in this collection is all honky tonk. These are the best tracks from his Mercury and Starday sides and is the first compilation to venture into this territory. Most of this was included later in the 1994 collection "Cup of Lonliness", but listening straight through from 1-20 on this CD is a stark reminder that once upon a time, George Jones could honky tonk with the best of them. He may be the best voice ever recorded in country music, but these sides are his truest legacy."

"This album I stumbled on accidently. Once I saw it, being a life long follower of GJ, I had to try it! Must I say more? I am glad that I listened to it, not surprised that I'd enjoy it, but am sorry that I bought it on tape! Now I am repurchasing it on CD and will continue to appreciate and enjoy the music that I believe is lost but with this album NOT be forgotten!! To sum up in a word, "GREAT"!!!"
