Remembering George Jones

Not being influenced by country music as a child, it took me well into my 20's to discover the talent of George Jones. It was only after purchasing Drag The River's "Live At The Starlight" did I first hear the song "She Think's I Still Care". From there it just took a few dollars and a couple used record stores till we were good friends.

When he embarked on his Farewell tour (as Glen Campbell did shortly ago) I knew that it wouldn't be long before he was gone. As with Buck, I feel that the sharper the flat-top, the better the record. His early Honky-Tonk recordings are the good stuff for me. He'll be missed by many, but never forgotten on Embrace The Sound.
