George Jones Complete United Artists Solo Singles

2013 collection of classic tracks from the Country icon spanning the years 1962-66. On this compilation that focuses on his singles for the United Artists label, the diversity of the material is astounding. You hear Jones master all the flavors of vintage Country: lovelorn ballads, inspirational Gospel, uptempo honky-tonk, humorous novelty numbers, old-timey murder ballads and even holiday and Western songs. Right out of the box at UA, Jones hit the jackpot with his third chart-topper, ‘She Thinks I Still Care’ backed with the gorgeous ballad, ‘Sometimes You Just Can’t Win,’ also a hit. Both sides of the plaintive single pointed the way to the kind of material that in Jones’ hands would become his signature style, leading to such landmark recordings as 1980’s ‘He Stopped Loving Her Today.’
