Part of the attraction of country music is the way it juxtaposes the pious and profane, the sacred and sinful; Saturday night’s partier is Sunday morning’s penitent. And never was this contradiction at the core of country music quite so captured than by the very public ups and downs of the marriage between George Jones and Tammy Wynette. Here was a couple whose alcohol and drug-fueled fights were legendary; yet one always got the sense that they were just two mixed-up people who truly loved each other and were just having a hard time getting along in this world. Plenty of attention has been paid to George and Tammy’s wild side; this collection focuses on their “mild” side, with 26 tracks of inspirational music taken from two albums and some singles. The first 11 tracks hail from their 1972 album We Love to Sing About Jesus, while the next 11 songs come from Tammy’s album Inspiration (CD debut!), which was released in 1969, the year she married George (and shortly after “Stand by Your Man” made her a superstar). Four single sides from the ‘70s, three by Tammy, one by George, round out the set. As far as we can tell this is the only collection ever to highlight George and Tammy’s inspirational material, and it is a real treat to hear them tackle this uncharacteristic fare. John Alexander supplies the liner notes, and the music is remastered at Sony’s own Battery Studios. A real treat, and not just for Sundays!
