In Nashville, where tempestuous marriages make enduring legends, George Jones and Tammy Wynette's still rates as one of the stormiest. "For years after the divorce," says a mutual friend, "when you would say her name, he would spit. And when you'd say his name, she'd shake." Still, in 1995, with Jones allegedly sober, and Tammy's health failing fast, they gave it one more try, on record anyway, for a much ballyhooed reunion, 15 years after their last duets, and 20 years after trading in their own golden rings. The material, mostly love songs designed to titillate the old fans, could have been stronger, the backing less formulaic, and Wynette's voice needed a boost in the mix now and then. But it had heart, and plenty of hillbilly soul. And when they put their voices together on "Just Look What We've Started Again," nearly everyone hoped it was true. --Alanna Nash

Country Music's Greatest Voices Together "ONE" Last Time
(5 out of 5 stars)
"It cannot be put into words what this album brings to country music or the person that listens to it. I purchased it when it first came out. I cried and laughed. "One" is one of the most beautiful love songs I've ever heard. "Whatever Happened To Us" cut deep into my emotions and soul. The loss of Tammy Wynette is almost too much to bear. I listen to this album now and I am overwhelmed by the fact that we will never hear another album from Tammy. No chance of another reunion with George. Buy this album. Cherish and treasure it."
The last of the best of duet partners
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Porter and Dolly were great. Loretta and Conway were great. But George and Tammy were beyond great. Thank God they were able to get together one last time to record this fabulous album. It certainly is a treasure."
