Product Description

Amazon.ca

With the help of producer Tony Brown, George Strait redefined his relationship to the contemporary country mainstream with this 1992 soundtrack album, which became the bestselling single release of his career. In the movie, Strait portrays a country star who walks away from the smoke and mirrors to get back to his down-home roots. The ballad "When Did You Stop Loving Me" is as pure country as it gets in this day and age, while "The King of Broken Hearts" and "Where the Sidewalk Ends" introduced Strait's audience to an exceptionally gifted songwriter named Jim Lauderdale. --Rick Mitchell

5.0 out of 5 stars Still as great as it was 10 years ago Nov. 19 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I was about 9 or 10 when this movie came out and I watched it until the tape was worn out. It was increadible. This soundtrack had the same effect on me. I listened to it constantly and knew every word to every song. Now keep in mind I am not the biggest country fan out there. I do listen to artists such as Brooks and Dunn or Garth Brooks but not a whole lot of country. Besides "Brand New Man" by Brooks and Dunn, this is one of the best country albums ever made from other albums that I have heard. I am 19 now and recently bought this soundtrack again and listened to it for the first time in about 9 years. I still knew every single word and continue to listen to it over and over again. It's great, and I'm sure if you listen to more country than I do, you already own this cd and know how amazing it is. But if you don't, or you've been living under a rock, pick this one up. It's a very fun and heartfelt country album. You'll know what I mean when you hear it and you're guaranteed to be addicted to all the songs. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Give This One A Listen April 23 2002
Format:Audio CD
My first introduction to the music on the album was through the movie, I enjoyed both the movie and the music. Of course I had heard of George Strait (who hasn't) but I was not really up to date on his music. I knew that he had a number of really big hits and the traditionalists liked him. That was what I considered the extent of my exposure to him.
After the movie, when I purchased this soundtrack I realized what an excellent singer he was. His style of music hit home with me. I enjoy every song on this album. Each one stands alone as a very good song and they fit into the overall feel of the album to make a very good album. This album (showing my age) will go down as a classic.
To take this a step further, the album interested me enough to buy more music by this artist and I thought, why not go big? I bought the box set and was stunned to hear so many songs that I knew and had sung over the years that were actually George Strait and I never knew it. This is a big statement but with the vast amount of material that George has released I feel that this is his best. Although it may be because the movie holds a sentimental piece of my heart, it is also surely because the music stands on its own. If you are a country fan, you owe it to yourself to purchase this album. If you are a music fan, give it a try, you won't be let down.

5.0 out of 5 stars This one is pure country Dec 19 1999
Format:Audio CD
The Pure Country soundtrack is the album that really made me a George Strait fan. I had liked George Strait before I saw him in the movie and bought the tape of the soundtrack album, but I have to say that after listening to the album, I got "hooked" on George. The ballad "I Cross My Heart" is my favorite song from this album, but "Heartland" and "Where The Sidewalk Ends", uptempo songs with some awesome lead guitar and fiddle parts, are also excellent songs. Furthermore, "When Did You Stop Loving Me" is a classic George Strait country song. These are just the highlights of an altogether excellent album. I think that in making the movie and the accompanying soundtrack album, George was telling us that there is still room for some "pure country" (quoting the movie's title) in the midst of all the "fluff" that I believe passes for country music nowadays. This one is definitely five stars, in my opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must-have for any Strait fan June 8 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is one of George's best, packed with memorable songs of style and substance. I Cross My Heart has since become a wedding staple, and one of George's best love songs of his career. Baby Your Baby and Overnight Male have a lot of fun with their lyrics, and make the listner sing along. A nice touch with the two Heartland versions. The up-tempo one is a little too much, and the closest I ever want to see him come to pop/rock. The main title version is very memorable for Bubba's rendition. When Did You Stop and King Of Broken Hearts tug at the heart strings, and are deeply entrenched in old-style country.
It is hard to choose a couple weak songs on such a near-perfect album, but I might have to say Where The Sidewalk Ends and Thoughts. This is mainly based on Sidewalk being overplayed in the movie and a little too much all over the map in focus. Thoughts is a little too slow and simplistic.
It doesn't get much better than this.

The Pure Country soundtrack is the record that made me a George Strait fan.
