Reseña de álbum

George Jones should have been on top of the world in the mid-'70s. He had transformed himself from a wild crew-cut hillbilly honky tonker into one of the finest ballad singers of the 20th century, and his top-of-the-charts duets and tours with his wife Tammy Wynette had made them the biggest show in country music, due in no small part to the media's constant day-to-day attention to all of it. But behind it, Jones was awash in an addiction to drugs and alcohol and on a rough downward spiral that would eventually claim his marriage and send him tumbling even deeper as the decade wore on. The amazing thing is, none of it affected his singing and his ability to completely enter a song and make it his own.

Initially, he was a hardcore honky tonker in the tradition of Hank Williams, but over the course of his career he developed an affecting, nuanced ballad style. In the course of his career, he never left the top of the country charts, even as he suffered innumerable personal and professional...
