This set is incredible, Disk 3 is as good as music can possibly get (And Disk 2 is not far beind) So many great songs: "If You Ain't Loving You Ain't Living, "Baby's Getting Good At Goodbye", "Bigger Man Then Me". "Hollywood Squares" (Despite what some people think, a funny song right up there with Jerry Reed's "She Got The Gold Mine And I Got The Shaft" and Alan Jackson's "I don't Even Know Your Name" as matrimonial mistake songs.),"You Know Me Better Than That" and "I've Come To Expect It from You", are 6 of my top 10 favorite Strait songs (Out of 18 on that disk) (Throw in "Ocean Front Property" and "When The Sidewalk Ends" and you get 8 of them in one set. Let me mention this to doubters. I have a friend of mine who teases me about loving COW MUSIC, and not liking smooth Jazz, but she too has this set (Knowing how good it is). George Strait (Along with Toby Keith and Alan Jackson) is what is left of quality popular country music, and you will find more quality songs on this set then the cumulative output of everyone except these three, this decade in Nashville. This set is a must have.

Few mainstream artists can honestly say that every album or song they have cranked out truly represents them. George Strait can. This boxed set is what all other boxed sets should be measured by: top-notch hits, sentimental favorites, and songs from throughout a career. This set is the perfect introduction to Mr. Strait for anyone who wants to learn more about him. The liner notes alone are worth the cost. Strait gives personal commentary on each song and why it was put in the set. He tells you his likes and dislikes, as well as reasons why he prefers to sing songs written by others and not himself. You'll find out that "Marina Del Rey" has something in it that doesn't sit quite right with Strait.
Disc-wise, all four have something on them that is sure to please. Big hits are included as well as a few early tunes written by Strait. I could go into detail about the songs, but all I really need to say is that every song in this set belongs for a reason.
Strait's sound never really strays too far from formula, and that's special, because most artists today come out with one or two solid efforts that don't really catch on with the mainstream crowd and either they or the record company changes them into some silly wannabe pop act or something along those lines. The only time Strait really changed was for the "Pure Country" soundtrack, but even songs like "Heartland" fit Strait's persona. That album also gave us a real gem in the song "Overnight Male." That song single-handedly woke up a bland pop-country audience and introduced them to some old-time, dirty country that seems to be lost today.
Granted, some people may say that Strait made a few gimmicky songs that helped push his career along, but all of these songs have their place in the Strait catalogue.

I was a year old when George Strait came out with the hit "Unwound." The box set really is a walk down memory lane for me. I can recall most times in my life with the George song that was popular at the time. This box set will keep you busy and entertained. It contains all the best along with "Check Yes or No" which is truly a new Strait classic. As strong as George is today, with the box set coypyrighted 8 years ago, I think George is due another set!!!! Definitely a winner. A true class act!

I think that George Strait is a wonderful country music singer. The guy that I was dating bought me "Pure Country" he told me that for us to pick a song it would have to be a very special song that had a specific meaning and that I would remember forever. Towards the end of the movie "Rusty" played by George Strait sings a song called "I cross my heart." My guy sat on my living room floor holding my hand and looking me in the eye singing that song to me. It was a very memorable moment and I will never forget it. Although this guy and I are no longer together it was one of the sweetest things a guy ever did for me. Thank you George for making that year and a half of my life so memorable!

George Strait (along with Ricky Skaggs)started the trend of returning country music back towards its traditional roots in the 1980s. Each song is a winner. George Strait can sing a soulful ballad such as "Marina Del Rey" as well as a toe tapping Texas swing tune " I can't see texas from here". Every time I hear "AM I Blue" I feel like dancing. One of my favorites is the rodeo ballad "Amarillo by Morning" which tells the life of a cowboy on the rodeo circuit.
Unlike other box sets, each CD has its own indivisual CD box. The box set also contains a booklet that gives extensive information on each song and George Strait's career.
