Keeping Up With the Joneses - George


I have reached the letter J in my cataloguing project which has thrown up the fact that I have albums by eight solo artists with the surname Jones. There is a healthy mix of genres so it seemed about the right length for a series.

There are also around another 30 that I have songs by digitally which could extend the series well into the winter. Having said that after last weeks sunshine it seems like winter has already arrived in Scotland.

Lets start with the Possum himself ,good old No Show Jones. The man whose then wife Tammy Wynette hid his clothes and car keys to stop him going into town to buy more drink.Undettered the bold George drove into town naked on his garden tractor. I would like to think that this is not an urban myth.

There are so many great songs to choose from. Here are three of his best.
