6 GEORGE JONES Birth Of A Legend (1954-61) I won't apologise for listing a second George Jones release in my "Best of the Year" especially as its the long awaited complete Starday/Mercury recordings, a catalogue that had been poorly represented over the years with haphazard compilations. Now it's all here, 195 tracks (including 20 previously unissued recordings) with a magnificent 172 page, hardcover book — a presentation that only Bear Family could create.

GEORGE JONES BIRTH OF A LEGEND Bear Family COUNTRY

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!

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.

This exhaustive anthology offers a fascinating overview of Jones' progression as he graduated to Mercury, especially his mastery of the heart-tearing ballad ("Cup Of Loneliness"; "Colour Of The Blues"; the majestic "The Window Up Above"). Legendary names like Grady Martin, Hank Garland and Buddy Emmons are at hand to shape the music, from rockabilly to honkY-tonk, and there's alsothe first appearance

Wall Street Journal
When George Jones died in 2013, at the age of 81, his standing as the greatest of male country vocalists had been in place for decades. As color artwork in this typically lavish new Bear Family Records set “George Jones: Birth of a Legend—The Truly Complete Starday and Mercury Recordings 1954-1961” illustrates, by the mid-1960s the Starday and Mercury labels for which he first recorded were touting him on LP covers—reasonably—as “King George” and “Country and Western #1 Male Singer.” In the decades that followed, the Texan’s singular, even mysterious genius for lyric interpretation, emotional nuance in performance and communication with audiences—and the evidence of over a hundred singles and even more albums—cemented that reputation.

In May 1956, the Texan label Starday issued a wild rockabilly single by Thumper Jones. Its top side, the kinetic “Rock It”, was primal, uncontrolled and wild. The flip, “How Come It”, was less frenzied but still driving and infectious. Original pressings of the two-sided pounder in either its 45 or 78 form now fetch at least £200. This is not your usual rockabilly rarity though. The record’s label credited the songs to a Geo. Jones. Thumper Jones was a pseudonymous George Jones (1931–2013), who was cashing in a hip style: the only time he did so with rockabilly.
