A Picture of Me/Nothing Ever Hurt Me

In the early 1970s, George Jones was an established star with more than three dozen Top 10 hits under his belt—but he was just getting started. Combining 1972’s A Picture of Me and 1973’s Nothing Ever Hurt Me, this single-CD reissue captures the moment when George met producer Billy Sherrill and the two began forging the soulfully heart-rending balladry that would eventually come to define The Possum’s musical persona. A Picture of Me is a lush showcase for George’s increasing vocal control; Nothing Ever Hurt Me finds him reaching back to his more energetic ’50s and ’60s style and reintegrating it into his arsenal.
