Paycheck had played bass for Jones as part of the Jones Boys in the 1960s. The production, by
Billy Sherrill, has Sherrill's trademark "
countrypolitan" sound and includes a female chorus on some songs.
Although the album stalled on the Billboard charts at number 45, the
Chuck Berry song "
Maybellene" peaked at number 7 on the country singles chart. "You Can Have Her" and "You Better Move On" were also minor hits.
Stephen Thomas Erlewine of
AllMusic observes, "The pair sound as if they were on one of their notorious drinking and drugging binges, making jokes with each other throughout every song (except the closing "
You Better Move On") and singing without regard for key." He also calls it "easily the worst album George Jones ever recorded."
