Album Review

16 Biggest Hits covers much of the same ground as the sublime Anniversary — not quite as well, but it's still pretty great nonetheless, simply because the source material is very strong indeed. The first nine songs were all on Anniversary, and they're the best tracks here. Many of the remaining songs are culled from post-Anniversary albums, and while there are some great cuts — "She's My Rock," "I Always Get Lucky With You," "The King Is Gone (So Are You)," "Who's Gonna Fill Their Shoes" — on the whole they don't match the earlier tracks. Nevertheless, this is a small matter, because it does a good job of sampling lesser work and thereby gives a good overview of his entire time with Epic. It may not be definitive the way the second disc of Essential George Jones: The Spirit of Country is or how Anniversary chronicles his peak years, but it's a good, affordable sampler all the same.

This is what country music is and how it should sound. The beauty of The Possum is that he really makes you feel his songs. You are there, you live it. Songs like "Who's Gonna Fill Their Shoes", "The Grand Tour", and "Radio Lover" are simply timeless classics. The more I listen to George the better he gets.

George Jones album

George jones is the greatest of all the male country music singers. I was a country music disc jockey for over 20 years and his songs were requested more than any other male singer at the time. I wish we had more country singers that could sing as well as George Jones. I would recommend this album and all of his albums to any true country music fan.

Mr. Jones is still with us as of today and so that makes him the #1 living legend.

By most accounts, George Jones was the finest vocalist in the recorded history of country music. 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...
