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.
