Ironically for a man whose erratic behaviour won him the nickname 'No-Show Jones', the late, great country superstar George Jones failed to complete his 2013 farewell tour. His death in April 2013 in the middle of his live swansong at 81 made headlines worldwide. These two albums are released on one CD for the first time.
Too Wild Too Long was released in 1987 and peaked at No. 14 on the Billboard Country Album Chart. Three singles were taken from the album, I'm A Survivor, The Bird and The Old Man No-one Loves.
You Oughta Be Here With Me from 1990 produced two singles, Hell Stays Open (All Night Long) and Six Foot Deep, Six Foot Down. The writing credits yield some interesting names: the title track was penned by veteran Roger Miller, while Someone That You Used To Know was a co-write by Bobby Whitlock (of Derek and the Dominos fame), and Jack Tempchin, who was involved with the Eagles' early hits.
Both albums are of course produced by Billy Sherrill.
