HEARTACHES BY THE NUMBER

Join us as we follow George and Tammy (and John and Iris) on an idyllic tour of some of the romantic capitols of the world: Rome, Athens, Paris. . . .


An Alternate 100* 
(We’re Not) The Jet Set • George Jones & Tammy Wynette • 1974

Special Blues All Kinds bonus
 (We’re Not) The Jet Set • John Prine with Iris DeMent • 1999


*“If we determined we had nothing much worthwhile to add to the conversation about a single, then that record didn’t make the cut, no matter how good it was. . . . [T]hose singles were were bumped down to “Once More with Feeling: An Alternate 100.” That supplemental list gathers, for the curious, our runners up, but, just as importantly, it presents an alternate, compressed version of the arguments made throughout the book.” —David Cantwell, Bill Friskics-Warren, “How to Use the Book” in Heartaches by the Number

Get ’em: Super Hits (the Jones and Wynette set); In Spite of Ourselves (the Prine and DeMent set)
