Early George Jones

March 29, 2007 - Courtesy Tapio Vaisanen - tapiov@pcuf.fi

I've been trying to compile complete early George Jones discography with Pasi on a Finnish language rockabilly forum http://www.roketsuvoorum.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=6741

This is based on previous attempts on rockinrecords and hillbilly lists, we've also used 45rpm/LP discography that Frank posted to the hillbilly list. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/hillbilly/files/GEORGE%20JONES.doc

Below is a listing of songs in alphabetical order. We've tried to include every known Starday & Mercury recording and the original release. All additions and corrections are welcome.

Does anyone know what is the title of this Wing SRW 16417 LP?
