Album Review

George Jones' early career was tied directly to record producer Pappy Daily, who discovered Jones and signed him to his local Texas label Starday Records in 1953, releasing Jones' first single in 1954. When Starday was absorbed into Mercury Records, Daily continued to produce Jones' releases for that label, and when Daily became a staff producer for United Artists Records in 1962, Jones followed him to that label. This three-CD, 86-track set includes the A- and B-sides of all of Jones' singles for Starday as well as some of his early sides for Mercury, and it shows Jones searching for a signature style, trying on rockabilly, imitating Hank Williams, recording under pseudonyms like Thumper Jones or Hank Smith, and even tracking cover versions of country hits for mail-order record companies, making this collection a true treasure for fans interested in Jones’ early years before he became a country legend and icon.
