Love Bug is an album by American country music singer George Jones. It was released in 1966 on the Musicor Records label.

Background[edit]

As Bob Allen points out in his book George Jones: The Life and Times of a Honky Tonk Legend, "During the next six years, with Musicor, George recorded more than over 280 songs - most of which were done in rushed, sloppily produced sessions - and help to establish for himself a somewhat unwelcome reputation as one of country music's most overrecorded artists." Love Bug was one of several albums Musicor issued on Jones in 1966, with some of the same songs - such as "Things Have Gone To Pieces", "Take Me", and the title track - reappearing. The album mostly features songs made famous by other artists, such as Dave Dudley, Roger Miller, and Merle Haggard. It reached number seven on the country album chart.
