The second song, I've still got some hurting to do, is a typical George Jones ballad that sets the tone for the rest of the album. Never bit a bullet like this - a duet with Sammy Kershaw - is particularly interesting. Sammy's voice is very similar to George's and some people felt the similarity was just too much. By recording with Sammy, George sent out a message that he approved of Sammy.
Some of these songs may be familiar to country fans already. Chad Brock covered The visit. Waylon Jennings was the first to record Silent partners - it can be found on his album Too dumb for New York City. Patty Loveless covered A thousand times a day - it appeared on her classic album, Trouble with the truth. The most famous song here is, of course, Hello Darling - a Conway Twitty classic.
So this is yet another brilliant album from George, who set the standard for male country singers and remains a huge influence to this day.
Iff you want a recent Jones cd go for 'cold hard truth' which is an immediate classic of try some of his original albums form the 60's and 70's. This man has got the most fantastic emotional and expressive voice - but you wont appreciate it fully here.
