Overview

George Jones' early career was tied directly to record producer Pappy Daily, who discovered Jones and signed him to his local Texas label, Starday Records, in 1953, releasing Jones' first single in 1954. When Starday was absorbed into Mercury Records, Daily continued to produce Jones' releases for that label, and when Daily became a staff producer for United Artists Records in 1962, Jones followed him to that label. This first volume of a two-volume Icon greatest-hits set covers this Mercury/United Artists period, and includes the hit singles "White Lightning," "She Thinks I Still Care," "Tender Years," and "The Race Is On," among others.
