  • Credits

    Personnel: George Jones (vocals, guitar); King Curtis (saxophone).
    George Jones' illustrious country career can be divided into two periods. The first, which stretched from 1952 to 1969, was defined by "hard" country recordings produced by fellow Texan George "Pappy" Daily; the latter began with Jones' switch to slick "countrypolitan" Nashville producer Billy Sherrill. The recordings found on 20 GOLDEN PIECES come from Jones' first period, the favorite of most traditional country fans. 20 GOLDEN PIECES is a reissue of Starday's 1967 THE GEORGE JONES STORY.
    It has often been said that George Jones could hold an audience enthralled singing the phone book, but he has considerably more than that to work with here. Merle Haggard's "I Threw Away the Rose," Ernest Tubbs "Soldier's Last Letter," and plenty of his own signature tunes, like "Color of the Blues," "Seasons Of My Heart," and "Lonely Street" are included. The sound quality on GOLDEN PIECES is a little murky, but the quality of music more than makes up for that slight deficiency.
