COVER NOTES:



GEORGE JONES, PERHAPS MORE THAN ANY OTHER NAME UNDER THE SUN, CONJURES UP ALL THINGS COUNTRY MUSIC. HIS LEGENDARY VOCALS SET THE STANDARD FOR ALL MALE COUNRY SINGERS THAT FOLLOW IN HIS FOOTSTEPS. THE TALES OF GEORGES COLORFUL LIFE ARE ALSO LEGENDARY. GEORGE WAS BORN IN SARATOGA, TEXAS ON SEPTEMBER 12, 1931. HIS FATHER BOUGHT GEORGE HIS FIRST GUITAR WHEN HE WAS NINE YEARS OLD. BY THE TIME HE WAS 12 YEARS OLD, GEORGE WAS EARNING MONEY PLAYING MUSIC. AT AGE 21, GEORGE JOINED THE MARINES. WHEN HE GOT OUT IN 1952, HE PAINTED HOUSES FOR A LIVING. WHENEVER GEORGE FOUND THE TIME, HE PLAYED MUSIC AND SANG. IN 1953, HE SIGNED A RECORD CONTRACT WITH STARDAY RECORDS. IN 1955, GEORGE HAD HIS FIRST TOP-10 HIT ON THE CHARTS. THE SONG, WHY BABY WHY, IS NOW CONSIDERED TO BE A COUNTRY MUSIC CLASSIC. IN THE 50 YEARS SINCE HIS FIRST HIT RECORDING, GEORGE JONES HAS RECORDED MORE CHARTED SINGLES THAN ANY RECORDING ARTIST IN HISTORY. IN 1969, GEORGE MARRIED HIS FEMALE COUNTRY MUSIC COUNTERPART, TAMMY WYNETTE. EVEN THOUGH IT ENDED IN DIVORCE IN 1975, THE MARRIAGE ADDED TO EACH SUPERSTARS LARGER-THAN-LIFE PERSONA. IN 1980, GEORGE JONES RECORDED A SONG THAT WOULD ONE DAY BE RANKED #1 ON THE LIST OF TOP-100 COUNTRY SONGS OF ALL TIME. HIS SIGNATURE SONG, HE STOPPED LOVING HER TODAY, ALSO WON GEORGE HIS FIRST GRAMMY AWARD. OVER THE YEARS, GEORGE JONES LIFE EXPERIENCES SOMETIMES HIGHLIGHTED HIS WILDER SIDE. HE ENDURED IT ALL AND, LIKE VINTGAGE WINE, HAS MELLOWED WITH AGE. IN 1992, GEORGE WAS HONORED WITH HIS INEVITABLE INDUCTION INTO THE COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME. IN 1999, GEORGES CURRENT POPULARITY WAS CONFIRMED WHEN HE RECEIVED ANOTHER GRAMMY AWARD FOR ONE OF HIS NEWEST RECORDINGS. THE SONGS INCLUDED IN THIS COLLECTION OF GEORGES FINEST RECORDINGS MAKE IT EASY TO UNDERSTAND WHY HE WAS NAMED ONE OF THE THREE MOST INFLUENTIAL COUNTRY RECORDING ARTISTS OF ALL TIME. HANK WILLIAMS AND JOHNNY CASH WERE ALSO ON THAT LIST OF LEGENDS. AS HE ENTERS HIS SIXTH DECADE AS A COUTRY ENTERTAINER, GEORGE JONES STANDS TALL AS COUNTRY MUSICS GREATEST LIVING ICON.
