The classic cover -- a picture of George alone in a diner, staring forlorn at his milk shake -- pretty much sums up the feeling of this Alone Again, a low-key, morning-after look at regret and loneliness. As always, Jones sings from the heart and from his own real life experiences dealing with the aftermath of his failed marriage. Despite a generally depressive mood, George pulls off one of his greatest novelty songs, "Her Name Is...," one of only a handful of hits he managed during his mid-70s slump.
