In May 1956, the Texan label Starday issued a wild rockabilly single by Thumper Jones. Its top side, the kinetic “Rock It”, was primal, uncontrolled and wild. The flip, “How Come It”, was less frenzied but still driving and infectious. Original pressings of the two-sided pounder in either its 45 or 78 form now fetch at least Ј200. This is not your usual rockabilly rarity though. The record’s label credited the songs to a Geo. Jones. Thumper Jones was a pseudonymous George Jones (1931–2013), who was cashing in a hip style: the only time he did so with rockabilly.

This 2007 two-fer from American Beat combines two LPs George Jones and Tammy Wynette recorded as partners in life and music: 1970's We Go Together and 1973’s Let's Build a World Together. Only three years separate these two albums, but it was a period that produced plenty of tumult, much of which made it to the grooves, so they make for a good pair as a CD: within these two albums, it’s possible to trace their love bloom and wilt.
Unlike Razor & Tie's 1997 double-disc collection She Thinks I Still Care: The George Jones Collection (The United Artists Years), Omnivore's 2013 set The Complete United Artists Solo Singles focuses directly on the 45s George Jones released for United Artists between the years 1962 and 1966 (he was only with the label until 1964 but they churned out singles for another two years after his departure). This is a bigger difference than it may initially seem. The 40-track She Thinks I Still Care sampled generously from Jones' duets with Melba Montgomery, his tributes to Bob Wills and Hank Williams, his bluegrass and gospel LPs, which meant there were several singles absent from its track listing.
