AllMusic Review by

This George Jones compilation lives up to the title's promise, collecting some of the Ol' Possum's most sensitive ballads alongside uptempo romantic tunes cherry-picked from his over 40 years of recordings for such labels as Starday, Mercury, United Artists, Musicor, Epic, and MCA. Among the 20 tracks are some of his most recognized tunes: "She Thinks I Still Care," "The Race Is On," "The Grand Tour," "She's My Rock," and the ultimate country weeper, "He Stopped Loving Her Today." While a number of excellent George Jones compilations are easily available, The Very Best of Love lives up to the best of them with a well-selected program mixing the original hits with a few that slipped through the cracks.
