Hits I Missed….And One I Didn’t

Hits I Missed….And One I Didn’t

NEW Combo BLUWAVS CD and FLAC FILEIt’s an interesting concept: George Jones, still the gold standard for country singers after nearly half a century, finally recording material submitted to and rejected by him from the ’60s through the ’90s–songs that would go on to become hits for others. Superbly produced by Keith Stegall, Jones masterfully tackles Willie Nelson’s “Funny How Time Slips Away”; Randy Travis’s “On the Other Hand”; “Detroit City,” the Mel Tillis composition that became Bobby Bare’s signature tune; and Merle Haggard’s “Today I Started Loving You Again.” A new version of Hank Williams Jr.’s “The Blues Man” with a cameo from Dolly Parton is reflective and thoughtful. Jones does equally well with “Too Cold at Home,” the introductory hit for his friend Mark Chesnutt. While the remake of his own 1981 landmark hit “He Stopped Loving Her Today” is austere and dignified, the biggest surprises are finding Jones had first crack at Henson Cargill’s socially relevant 1968 ballad “Skip a Rope” and “Pass Me By,” Johnny Rodriguez’s 1972 debut hit. Jones’s brief notes on each tune provide some interesting hindsight perspectives. –Rich Kienzle
