I Am What I Am. George Jones. This album finds George Jones winding down his years on MCA, where his artistry mostly smoldered, never blazing bright as it had at Epic. Whatever the problems in getting the Voice on tape, there's a poignancy here in hearing a silver-haired man in his 60s trade on his rip-'em-up days as a hell-raiser ("Billy B. Bad"), and verge on self-parody in the drinking songs, as empty as returnable bottles. The trick is in knowing what to look for. That Jones. He always keeps you guessing.
