LET IT TWANG! CD Review

George Jones -- Cold Hard Truth (Asylum 62368).  The Possum came back from being dropped (the nerve!) by MCA with his best record in years, in the more understanding and enlightened hands of the folks at Asylum Records.  With this record, George is fronting a great country band which includes Stuart Duncan on fiddle.  The cd begins with "Choices", a knowing statement about living with the consequences of life's decisions, something George can sing about with more authority than anyone currently on the Billboard charts.  The cd's title track is as good a ballad as he's ever done.  If you're a fan of George's classic 70's work, this disc will sound like a long lost friend.  Top Ten of 1999 Award Winner  -TRS.
