For the country fan who thinks the last great Nashville hit was “He Stopped Loving Her Today": “George Jones: 50 Years of Hits” (Bandit, three discs, $30.98). This grand tour of Jones’ half-century career begins with 1955’s “Why Baby Why” and concludes with “Amazing Grace,” recorded for the artist’s recent gospel album. Disc No. 2 covers Jones’ 1970s glory years, but it’s the Jones-Alan Jackson duet “A Good Year for the Roses,” which shows up at the end of Disc No. 1, that will take you straight to hillbilly heaven.
