With no biographical material needed for the iconic George Jones, let s get right to the music: 'A Picture Of Me (Without You)' is quite simply a George Jones masterpiece! Working with producer Billy Sherrill for the first time, Jones found the perfect foil to his now-famous hard honky tonk soul, Sherrill didn t try to tame Jones, but just lasso him in enough to make beautiful music. With many of the finest Nashville songwriters contributing songs, this five-star release (All Music Guide) is called by many the perfect George Jones album. Not to be outdone by its predecessor, Nothing 'Ever Hurt Me (Half As Bad As You)' (Jones second album with producer Billy Sherrill) picks up right where 'A Picture Of Me' left off and never looks back. Another five-star album (All Music Guide), Jones also scored a pair of Top 10 hits with this release (the title track and 'What MyWoman Can t Do'). This is George Jones at his best, and it's on American Beat Records!
Exorcizing the ghost of a failed relationship via the time-honored tradition of the breakup album, Norah Jones luxuriates in beautiful misery on Little Broken Hearts. Liberated by the separation but not quite ready to let it go, Jones achieves a curious subdued tension here, dressing unadorned confessionals in softly stylized studio noir created with the assistance of producer Danger Mouse, who collaborated with her the year before on the collective Rome. Seeming opposites – the classicist meets the futurist – Jones and Danger Mouse are well matched, as both artists are not as set in their ways as their individual reputations would suggest…
