AllMusic Review by

George Jones and Tammy Wynette were the Romeo and Juliet of modern country music. Their relationship was full of passion and tribulation, and they sang some of the best his-and-hers duets ever. These two singers virtually define classic (that is, pre-Garth and pre-Billy Ray era) country singing.

GREATEST HITS VOL. 2 is a collection of more of the duo's hits (1972-1980) from Epic. Fans won't be disappointed. Jones and Wynette make the Louvin Brothers' classic "When I Stop Dreaming" their own. "We go Together" is a classic honky-tonk declaration of love, and the uplifting "The World Needs a Melody" contrasts folk-like acoustic picking with surging gospel choruses. As a pair or on their own, Jones and Wynette have few equals.
