2012 release. "In our 2nd volume of rare and magnificent Grandpa Jones recordings we find Grandpa at the very peak of his powers. Released originally in 1968 and 1969 these two LPs feature the apex of Grandpa's 'traditional' song writing, balladeer and instrumental skills. Augmented by the best players of the era (including close friend and legendary picker Merle Travis) these 32 tracks were originally compiled to coincide with Jones' newfound popularity as a member of the 'Hee Haw' troupe. It was an association that would bring great joy to many and incredible sorrow to Grandpa Jones himself. Hear the unique stage-painted Grandpa wax rustic, poetic and elderly on L.S.D, barefoot education, passive smoking, combat fatigue, universal love and much, much more! This deluxe collector's edition presents two of his very finest 1960s albums, remastered from the original Monument master tapes with exclusive scholarly liner notes, rare photos and a clutch of extra excellent LP cuts and rare 45 sides."
