Overview

With a voice that has defined the sound of traditional country for decades now, it should come as no surprise that George Jones can wring every last bit of soul out of gospel and sacred material, as this brief set of ten songs makes clear. Recorded in the 1960s when Jones' life was burdened by alcohol, outrageous behavior, and professional unreliability, these songs have never been on CD before and a couple of them, "Where the Soul Never Dies" and "The Old Rugged Cross," only appeared on vinyl outside of the U.S. Music never really caused the turmoil in Jones' life, and here one hears how much he clung to it as a life raft. It's called redemption, and this is George Jones reaching and wishing for it.
