Overview

Many consider George Jones to be the greatest singer in country music history, but a number of his best-loved recordings from his chart-topping years have never been available on CD. Jones recorded for Musicor Records from 1965 until 1972, when he was at the peak of his vocal form, and for years these tracks have been tied up in litigation and haven't been available on CD, until now.

Time Life is proud to release George Jones: The Great Lost Hits, the result of extensive research to identify the best sources for sound quality. The productions are simple and to the point -- a voice like George's needs no more ornamentation than it has here. This is the gold standard of country singing.

The 34-song, 2-CD collection includes his all-time classics like "A Good Year for the Roses," "Walk through this World with Me," "I'll Share My World with You," "Love Bug," and "When the Grass Grows over Me." We've also included the original version of "Beneath Still Waters" (later a #1 country hit for Emmylou Harris) and "Your Angel Steps out of Heaven" (later recorded by Elvis Costello, Flying Burrito Brothers and others). Plus we've got the original version of "Where Grass Won't Grow," later re-recorded by George with Trisha Yearwood, Dolly Parton, and Emmylou Harris.

George Jones is the gold standard of country vocalists, and his distinctive voice evokes the raw emotions caused by grief, love, and emotional hardship. There is no doubt that Jones helped set the standard for modern country music. From the Label
