Super Hitsby George Jones
Epic's 1987 Super Hits is a budget-line sampler of George Jones' '70s and '80s work for the label -- which means, of course, that the first three songs on the album ("White Lightning," "Why Baby Why," "The Window Up Above") are not original recordings, they're remakes. Billy Sherrill-produced remakes, that is, which means they're better and more interesting than your average remakes, but they're not as good as the Starday/Mercury/UA originals (plus, they're recycled from the 1977 collection, All-Time Greatest Hits, Vol. 1). The rest of the song selection is highlighted by a four-song stretch in the middle of the record that brings you "A Picture of Me (Without You)," "The Grand Tour," "Bartender's Blues," and "He Stopped Loving Her Today."
