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! Hits like 'Why Baby Why', 'White Lightning', 'The Window Up Above' and 'Tender Years' sit alongside many sidetracks for Jones as he searches for his own identity. Included are over 20 unreleased tracks. As always the presentation is immaculate including a 174 page hardcover book with hundreds of photos and illustrations. This is essential for any George Jones or country fans, although for newbies pick up one of the later period box sets first.
