How It Happened
Almost from the beginning of Bear Family forty years ago, there has been a steady flow of requests to reissue all of George Jones' Starday and Mercury recordings. They've been issued and reissued on scattershot compilations on myriad labels, sometimes rechanneled into fake stereo, sometimes overdubbed, sometimes edited, and usually without any logic behind the compilation. As a first step, Bear Family founder Richard Weize asked Otto Kitsinger, Don Roy and Dave Sax to try to take the first shot at a discography of George Jones' early recordings. That was more than twenty years ago.

After the success of Bear Family's anthologies of Jones' United Artists and Musicor recordings, we decided to take another shot at making sense of the frustrating tape logs and session contracts from Jones' earliest sessions. Then we tried to fill in the multitude of missing pieces, and figure out who owned what. And then we commissioned Kevin Coffey to write what is surely the definitive account of Jones' early years. Finally, we contacted the George Jones estate for their photos. The result: the last word on the early recordings of the first name in country music.

Why It Happened

The reason for the years of work behind this set is that it represents the beginning of George Jones ... the greatest singer in country music history. Here he's young and vibrant with everything to prove and nothing to lose. Over the course of seven years, we hear him become the singer we know so well. There were occasional dead ends, like the infamous rockabilly single he recorded as Thumper Jones and the soundalike discs he recorded for Dixie, and there were some unworthy songs that were forced upon him or he forced upon himself, but there were also classic George Jones recordings, on a par with anything else in country music history. We hear the raw, unbridled Texas honky tonk sound give way to classic Nashville. Above all, we hear country music's greatest singer discover himself

The Result
These recordings have never been heard complete and in sequence before. In painstakingly cross-checking, we found unreleased takes and even a few unreleased songs, including little-heard numbers from George Jones' first sessions in the living room studio of Starday Records founder Jack Starns. From there, we take in seven turbulent years that saw George Jones become the gold-standard country music vocalist, setting the stage for another forty years of hits. Truly, one of the essential sets in country music, for historical reasons as much as the pure enjoyment of hearing the genre's greatest stylist at the top of his game.

George Jones

12.9. 1931  Saratoga - Texas / 26. 04. 2013

Record Labels: Starday, Mercury, Longhorn, Power Pak, Hillside, United Artists, Musicor, RCA, Intercord, Ace, Rounder, Epic.
First Top Ten Hit: Why Baby, Why (1955)
First No. 1 Hit: White Lightning (1959)

In November, 1953, he was fresh out of the Marines, having joined two years earlier in the wake of an unraveling marriage. Before taking the oath, he'd been a denizen of honky tonk stages in and around Beaumont, Texas. Born in a rough-cut log house near Saratoga in East Texas' mysterious, often violent Big Thicket region on September 12, 1931, hillbilly music surrounded him as a kid; his singing voice turned heads even when he was an adolescent.

Jones wasn't back long when he heard about Starday, a new record company. Lefty Frizzell's ex-manager Jack Starnes and hard-bitten Houston area railroader-turned-juke box and slot machine impresario-turned record label owner, distributor and retailer Harold 'Pappy' Daily co-founded it in 1952. George's buddy, aspiring local singer Sonny Burns, had dealings with them, so Jones returned to playing the dives around the area, expanding his profile in 1954 as a disc jockey over KTRM. He soon found Starday interested in auditioning him.

His audition and first session took place in Jack Starnes' living room-turned-improvised recording studio. With an amateur's passion for the era's great singers, he tried to emulate the best of all of them as he sang--until Daily asked with great sincerity, "George, you've sung like Roy Acuff, Lefty Frizzell, Hank Williams and Bill Monroe. Can you sing like George Jones?"

No Money In This Deal, the first single, came from that session. It didn't take. Neither did the next five singles.

It was single number seven, the Hankish Why Baby Why that landed in the Top Ten in 1955. More Starday hits followed. After a brief, abortive alliance between Starday and Mercury Records, Daily, who still co-owned Starday with his partner Don Pierce, (Jack Starnes had departed earlier) fell out with Pierce in 1958. When the smoke cleared, Pierce took Starday; George wound up contracted to Pappy and remained a Mercury artist. Pappy kept his hand in the regional market. He'd formed Houston-based D and Dart Records as a regional operation aimed at finding new talent, Gabe Tucker helping him run things. Glad Music, Daily's new publishing company, would handle that end of things.

Jones came up with some landmark hits on Mercury, among them Color Of The Blues and the Chuck Berry-influenced White Lightning, from the pen of Daily discovery and Jones buddy, KTRM disc jockey-singer-composer J. P. 'The Big Bopper' Richardson. He originally recorded his hard-driving rocker Chantilly Lace for D, until Mercury, who'd initially passed on it, re-released it nationally. That put it over the top and made the Bopper and fulltime rock star from later '58 until February 3, 1959, when the small private plane carrying him, Buddy Holly and Ritchie Valens crashed killing everyone on board.

At Mercury, Jones's vocal style began evolving, his keening, edgy nasality morphed into a more distinctive type of phrasing. Overtones of Hank and Acuff remained, but Jones's voice moved into a lower register. He could wrench emotion out of a phrase or lyric by bearing down on it as he sang. The new maturity manifested itself in his final Mercury hits: The Window Up Above and especially the #1 single Tender Years, where the formerly twangy accompaniment replaced by muted Nashville Sound backing.

 

The new Jones style quickly began influencing others, Buck Owens among them. Interviewed in 1988, Buck confirmed that point. "I thought that George was the greatest thing since sliced bread. I could not help it and later on in the last years I've tried to make a concerted effort to not get into that, but if you listen on (my records in the) early years, you're sure gonna hear George because he was a big influence on me as far as the singers go," he said. As time passed, George began singing in lower registers that combined with his distinctive phrasing his singular sound brought more admiration among fans and his peers.

Pappy came to know Mercury executive Art Talmadge, who'd left to join United Artists Records. Daily and Jones followed him there. The label was only four years old. Originally created to distribute soundtracks from UA-produced films, it branched out, becoming a hip jazz label and then broadened into other areas. Their newly-created country division consisted mainly of Daily acts with Jones as the flagship, Pappy serving as UA's de facto country producer.

Jones's relationship with Daily was business only, and fostered deep resentment that hadn't abated in his 1996 autobiography 'I Lived To Tell It All,' where he wrote bitterly, "I made a lot of money for Pappy Daily, Starday and Mercury. Basically, I was a naïve guy who was overly trusting of some people who proved to be untrustworthy. I was never paid royalties on a regular basis. It became very frustrating to hear my songs on the radio, see them listed high on the charts and not have enough money to hire a band."

 

His two-year UA contract yielded exactly 151 recordings. Some singles and albums from that period stand among his most memorable. Every album was 'produced by Pappy Daily.' Or so it seemed. In 2001, Jones clarified their 16 year studio relationship, which continued through his 1965-1970 stint with Talmadge's Musicor Records. "A lot of people think (Pappy) was the producer, but he really wasn't. He timed the songs in the studio and he wrote out the paperwork. That was about all he did. I worked with the musicians myself and we worked out the arrangements. I basically left it up to the musicians after we run through the songs. I wanted them to be more a part of the production."

 

Jones created many great moments in the studio during his UA phase. Some were captured on tape, some not. His legendary reputation as a drinker and hellraiser already established, his stature continued to rise. Many Nashville insiders began hanging at George's sessions, both to marvel at the voice and to see what whiskey-fueled mischief he'd make this time. One frequent sideman explained that while Jones was usually well-lubed throughout a recording session, a certain sweet spot existed. Too few drinks didn't loosen him up sufficiently; too many washed out a session. An amount of alcohol in between those extremes unleashed every bit of his unrestrained, uninhibited power.

Unbelievable!

A fantastic collection including a wonderful book with 176 pages in 30 x 30 cm format, fortunately concentrating on the music and recording sessions. (After all, it is his music we love, is it not? Not his private life!)

Country at his best

Nie war das "Possum" oder "No Show Jones" authentischer, härter, ursprünglicher, als in diesen Aufnahmen. Das ist Hardcore-Country, und nichts ist weichgespühlt. - Eine wunderbare CD-Box mit einem gleichfalls gut recherchierten Buch, das keine Fragen offen läßt.

Amazing and essential collection!!!

I have been secretly wishing for a Bear family box containing all early recordings by George Jones. These early recordings are what George Jones for me is all about. Raw personality, intensity, emotions, just recorded, not produced or even over-produced and just commercial stuff! This is THE real thing after Hank Williams. I did not dare hope for this collection but when I saw it was indeed issued and available and also very affordable! I directly ordered one. The sound quality is great - although I will not sell my original Starday and Mercury LP's :-) It is very interesting to hear some of the alternative takes/outtakes and unissued sides. Cannot stop listening and wait for the next track, although I already knew most of them. And then as a surprise the high quality bound book!!!! Unbelievable and included in the price of this et! Amazing! Get it! and you won't ever regret it! Thank you Richard Weize!!!! And thanks again for the fantastic Johnny Horton DVD!!!! I bought 3 of them, 1 for my son, 1 for me and 1 spare!

An Incredible Box Set

Bear Family has done all country music fans a great service in compiling every single recording that George Jones made for Starday and Mercury. For various legal reasons, which I don't understand, these recordings have never been compiled in a single offering. The remastering is impeccable, and the accompanying books contains a treasure trove of information about Jones during this period of his career. Of particular interest are two rare tracks Jones recorded with Arlie Duff that feature Jones flatpicking lead guitar, a skill I did not know he had. My understanding is that there are licensing issues that currently prevent this box set from being sold by third party sellers in the United States, which is why I ordered my set directly from Bear Family. It's well worth the price!

Press - George Jones - Birth Of A Legend - The Truly Complete Starday And Mercury Recordings -TheArtDesk 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.

Press - George Jones - Birth Of A Legend - The Truly Complete Starday And Mercury Recordings - 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.

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. 7 WILLIE NELSON God's Problem Child There seems no stopping Willie
