Hits I Missed...And One I Didn't

About this item

The fact that George Jones, often referred to as "The King of Country Music," first hit the charts in 1955, is impressive. That he just released a new album at the age of 74 is downright remarkable. Hits I Missed... And One I Didn't collects 11 songs Jones passed on over the years that became hits for other artists. The timeless "He Stopped Loving Her Today" is the only song here that Jones previously recorded.

Hits I Missed... And One I Didn't is without question the best album Jones has released in over a decade. While Jones' last few studio albums have been a little uneven, Hits I Missed contains no weak links. From the yearning "Funny How Time Slips Away" to the emotionally charged "Skip A Rope," Jones brings his A game to every cut. The latter, one of the lesser-known tracks on the album, looks at the damage the words of warring parents have on their children. Mel Tillis' oft recorded "Detroit City" sounds tailor-made for Jones' traditional voice. Bobby Bare used to have the definitive version of this track: not anymore.

A hardcore country song has never had a better friend than George Jones. Alan Jackson's steel-soaked "Here In The Real World" gets resurrected, and it sounds as good as it did when it was a hit for Jackson. "On The Other Hand," a smash for Randy Travis, fits Jones like a glove. Fiddle and steel perfectly shade the spaces between Jones' aching vocals. Mark Chesnutt's mournful "Too Cold At Home" has found a new host. Jones shows all the young hats in Nashville how to sing a sad song. Dolly Parton adds her voice to Hank Jr.'s rattling "The Blues Man." Parton and Jones make a great duet team.

Jones has always had the ability to inject each song he sings with an authenticity that many have tried, but failed to emulate. Few singers can touch Vern Gosdin's "If You're Gonna Do Me Wrong," but like the rest of the songs on this disc, Jones makes it seem easy. "He Stopped Loving Her Today," one of the greatest country songs ever written, gets sanded down and given a fresh coat of paint. Twenty-five years after the original version was recorded, Jones and producer Keith Stegall revisit the classic track. The string section so prevalent in the original, has been replaced by steel guitar (to great effect).

Radio may not play him anymore, but George Jones is still recording relevant country music at a time when the genre so desperately needs it. Hits I Missed... And One I Didn't is as real as it gets.

I have so enjoyed this cd of George Jones. Now that he has left us and gone onto his rewards, I hope the angles in heaven are getting acquainted with that soft velvet voice of his.
