Bear Family have already released box sets detailing the '60s career of country great George Jones. For their first box set release of 2017, the label has finally gone back to the early years on Starday and Mercury with a 6 CD set. Over the last 40 years this has been the most requested box set for Bear Family. Due to the difficulty in locating many of these early recordings this has been a set 20 years in the making!

GEORGE JONES Birth Of A Legend - The Truly Complete any And Mercury Recordings 1954-1961 ****

6 CDs - 200 tracks - 174 pages hardcover book Producer: Various Bear Family 7:38:00
This six CD boxed set is one of Bear Family's most requested sets ever. Charting the beginning of the greatest career in country music, it includes all of Jones' classic early recordings including Why Baby Why, White Lightning, Window Up Above, and 22 more charted hits. It also includes the Thumper Jones rockabilly single and duets with Janette Hicks, Bobbie Ellison, Margie Singleton, and Virginia Spurlock and comes with a whopping 174 page book and a newly researched biography and discography. Bear Family first started working on this discography more than 20 years ago and have spent goodness knows how many man hours figuring out who owned what and making sense of tapes logs and session contracts.
