“To call George Jones the greatest country singer of all time has become something of a cliché over the past few decades, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t true. What no one talks about, though, is just how strong a songwriter Jones was in his first half decade or so of recording and how it was, in fact, the very twists and turns of his own songs that allowed him to refine his unique ballad style. . . .” —David Cantwell in Heartaches by the Number
