With the re-release of 1991's AND ALONG CAME JONES, new country fans can hear one of the greats singing superb tunes at the top of his abilities. In the midst of the neo-traditional country boom that ignited with the success of Randy Travis--who was emulating Jones to begin with--George Jones found himself in demand. After years of being considered a "classic," he was now "hot." On AND ALONG CAME JONES, he sounds hungry to prove himself again. His crack band--made up of Nashville's finest--is flawless.
There's not a poor song among the ten tunes on AND ALONG CAME JONES, and a few are as devastating as anything George ever recorded. On John Fountain's "Angels Don't Fly," Jones does what he does best on tearjerkers--he reaches into your heart, pulls it out with a pop, drops it on the floor, and stomps on it.
