How It Happened
Almost from the beginning of Bear Family forty years ago, there has been a steady flow of requests to reissue all of George Jones' Starday and Mercury recordings. They've been issued and reissued on scattershot compilations on myriad labels, sometimes rechanneled into fake stereo, sometimes overdubbed, sometimes edited, and usually without any logic behind the compilation. As a first step, Bear Family founder Richard Weize asked Otto Kitsinger, Don Roy and Dave Sax to try to take the first shot at a discography of George Jones' early recordings. That was more than twenty years ago.

After the success of Bear Family's anthologies of Jones' United Artists and Musicor recordings, we decided to take another shot at making sense of the frustrating tape logs and session contracts from Jones' earliest sessions. Then we tried to fill in the multitude of missing pieces, and figure out who owned what. And then we commissioned Kevin Coffey to write what is surely the definitive account of Jones' early years. Finally, we contacted the George Jones estate for their photos. The result: the last word on the early recordings of the first name in country music.

Why It Happened

The reason for the years of work behind this set is that it represents the beginning of George Jones ... the greatest singer in country music history. Here he's young and vibrant with everything to prove and nothing to lose. Over the course of seven years, we hear him become the singer we know so well. There were occasional dead ends, like the infamous rockabilly single he recorded as Thumper Jones and the soundalike discs he recorded for Dixie, and there were some unworthy songs that were forced upon him or he forced upon himself, but there were also classic George Jones recordings, on a par with anything else in country music history. We hear the raw, unbridled Texas honky tonk sound give way to classic Nashville. Above all, we hear country music's greatest singer discover himself

The Result
These recordings have never been heard complete and in sequence before. In painstakingly cross-checking, we found unreleased takes and even a few unreleased songs, including little-heard numbers from George Jones' first sessions in the living room studio of Starday Records founder Jack Starns. From there, we take in seven turbulent years that saw George Jones become the gold-standard country music vocalist, setting the stage for another forty years of hits. Truly, one of the essential sets in country music, for historical reasons as much as the pure enjoyment of hearing the genre's greatest stylist at the top of his game.

"Könnten wir alle so klingen, wie wir wollten, wir würden alle klingen wie George Jones." - Zitat von Waylon Jennings

 George Jones, der Honky Tonk Sänger

George JonesGeorge Jones, der Honky Tonk Sänger mit der ausdrucksstarken Country Stimme, der seinerzeit gerne als der 'Crown Prince Of Country Music' bezeichnet wurde, kam im November 1953, gerade frisch bei den Marines entlassen, in Beaumont, Texas an. Bis tief in das Jahr 1954 sorgte er in dieser Region mit seinen Auftritten in den lokalen Honky Tonks für Aufsehen.

Noch im gleichen Jahr wurde Pappy Daily, Chef von Starday Records, auf ihn aufmerksam und gab dem ausdrucksstarken Sänger eine Chance. Und Daily hatte mit George Jones tatsächlich eine Goldmine entdeckt. Jones erreichte bereits im Folgejahr 1955 die Top 10 der Country Charts. Nach den ersten großen Erfolgen in den 50er Jahren, übrigens teilweise auch auf dem Rockabilly Sektor unter dem Pseudonym Thumper Jones.

Gehörte er dann in den 60ern zu den erfolgreichsten und einflussreichsten Country Interpreten, der Hit auf Hit produzierte. George Jones war zeitweise der Country Sänger mit den meisten veröffentlichten LPs. Legendär sind auch seine berühmten Duett Aufnahmen mit Melba Montgomery und seiner Frau Tammy Wynette. 

George Jones in den 60er Jahren

George Jones

Die 60er Jahre bescherten ihm Hits, wie 'Love Bug', She Thinks I Still Care' und 'The Race Is On'. Letzteres 1981 erfolgreich von Dave Edmunds & Stray Cats gecovert. Trotz zunehmender Alkoholprobleme blieb Jones auch in den 70er Jahren und nach der Scheidung von Tammy Wynette erfolgreich.Obwohl er sich durch Absagen vieler Konzerte den Spitznamen 'No Show Jones' einhandelte.

George Jones in den 80er Jahren

1980 war er mit 'He Stopped Loving Her Today' erneut an der Spitze der Country Charts. 1992 wurde Jones in die Country Music Hall Of Fame aufgenommen und 1995 veröffentlichte er seine Autobiographie 'I Lived To Tell It All'.

George Jones in den 90er Jahren

Zum Ende der 90er Jahre hatte George Jones, auch das Possum genannt, nach einem schweren Verkehrsunfall seine Alkoholsucht mit Hilfe seiner damaligen Frau Nancy überwinden können und sein Album 'Cold Hard Truth' von 1998, das je zur Hälfte vor und nach dem Unfall entstanden war, gilt heute als eines seiner besten. George Jones absolvierte bis ins hohe Alter noch jährlich etwa 100 Auftritte.

Im Frühjahr 2012 musste er aufgrund einer Atemwegsinfektion zwei Krankenhausaufenthalte über sich ergehen lassen, um bereits im Juni des Jahres erneut auf der Bühne zu stehen.

George Jones starb 2013 im Alter von 81 Jahren in einem Krankenhaus in Nashville.

Amazing and essential collection!!!

I have been secretly wishing for a Bear family box containing all early recordings by George Jones. These early recordings are what George Jones for me is all about. Raw personality, intensity, emotions, just recorded, not produced or even over-produced and just commercial stuff! This is THE real thing after Hank Williams. I did not dare hope for this collection but when I saw it was indeed issued and available and also very affordable! I directly ordered one. The sound quality is great - although I will not sell my original Starday and Mercury LP's :-) It is very interesting to hear some of the alternative takes/outtakes and unissued sides. Cannot stop listening and wait for the next track, although I already knew most of them. And then as a surprise the high quality bound book!!!! Unbelievable and included in the price of this et! Amazing! Get it! and you won't ever regret it! Thank you Richard Weize!!!! And thanks again for the fantastic Johnny Horton DVD!!!! I bought 3 of them, 1 for my son, 1 for me and 1 spare!

An Incredible Box Set

Bear Family has done all country music fans a great service in compiling every single recording that George Jones made for Starday and Mercury. For various legal reasons, which I don't understand, these recordings have never been compiled in a single offering. The remastering is impeccable, and the accompanying books contains a treasure trove of information about Jones during this period of his career. Of particular interest are two rare tracks Jones recorded with Arlie Duff that feature Jones flatpicking lead guitar, a skill I did not know he had. My understanding is that there are licensing issues that currently prevent this box set from being sold by third party sellers in the United States, which is why I ordered my set directly from Bear Family. It's well worth the price!
