This is part of Legacy's 16 BIGGEST HITS series.
This is a compilation of Jones material that postdates the "Race Is On" and "White Lightnin'" years. 16 BIGGEST HITS concentrates exclusively on recordings from the '70s and '80s, proving that Ol' Possum lost not a bit of his luster as time moved on. "The Grand Tour," the title track from his 1973 album, is one of his finest heartbreak ballads ever, as he literally takes the listener on a walking tour of his emotional desolation. "Bartender's Blues" is best known to many by James Taylor's version, but guess whose take on the tune is superior. Jones' '70s classic "He Stopped Loving Her Today" is one of the finest country weepers ever recorded, and is a highlight of this collection. George's sense of humor is brought to the fore on the loopy "The King is Gone (So Are You)." 16 BIGGEST HITS is a well-rounded package chronicling an important phase in the career of country's greatest voice.
