A typically excellent release by the reissue label Koch International, this almost-sixty-minute CD collects two full albums by the legendary George Jones. Released in 1972 and 1973, these two albums are among the first fruits of Jones' 20-year partnership with producer Billy Sherrill. Sherrill wisely scaled back his trademark Spectoresque "countrypolitan" sound for these albums by the fiercely traditional Jones; as a result, the pedal-steel-powered songs sound considerably less dated than many early-'70s country records.

Jones is in remarkable voice, and his inimitable phrasing saves songs like the maudlin death ballad "Second Handed Flowers" from mawkishness and pushes finer material like "She Loves Me (Right Out of My Mind)" and "Wine (You've Used Me Long Enough)" to greater heights. A PICTURE OF ME and NOTHING EVER HURT ME are among Jones' best '70s efforts, and this well-annotated reissue is more than welcome.
