    I have the LP and love it to pieces. A few brews on a Friday night is workingman's paradise.

    Merle got all dressed up for the album cover photo shoot, didn't he? :lol:

    I love all the work those two did together. Dang I miss the old guard.

    I got to see George Jones live, but not Merle. Those two are the very best in my opinion.

    I never got to see George in concert, though my father met him in Beaumont before he was a star.

    I've seen Merle and the Strangers more times than I can count in four states. I met Noel and Benny backstage after a show they did with Georgette Jones, and Noel once did a couple songs onstage with our band at a local festival show.

    My current drummer is personal friends with Noel, and used to play local shows with him before Merle died and the boys started touring together. I'm lucky.

    What a legacy these guys left.
