Product Description

After over 25 years of making timeless Country music, selling over 65 million albums and scoring 55 #1 singles, George is not showing any signs of slowing down. Fresh off the success of his latest platinum release It Just Comes Natural comes George Strait 22 More Hits. This 2007 collection is truly the perfect companion piece to his multi-platinum 50 Number One's set. The new collection includes some of George's biggest hits that didn't reach that #1 chart position including favorites like 'Unwound', 'If You're Thinking You Want A Stranger', 'Amarillo By Morning', 'The Fireman', 'Cowboys Like Us', 'You'll Be There' and many more. Also includes the brand new single 'How 'Bout Them Cowgirls'. MCA.

Amazon.com

George Strait has amassed so many charting singles that his record company has nearly run out of compilation titles. Now, fresh from Strait’s 2007 CMA Album of the Year Award (for It Just Comes Natural), here comes 22 More Hits, a collection of singles that stopped short of number one but which built his career. "The Fireman," "When Did You Stop Loving Me," and "Lovebug" are fine reminders of his bar-stool-hugging days, when Strait spoke the honky-tonk gospel in a flat Texas drawl. That, of course, was before he waved goodbye to George Jones and Buck Owens (let alone western-swing master Bob Wills) and shaved off most of his rough edges for overwhelmingly smooth, mid-tempo fare like "How ‘Bout Them Cowgirls." An appreciative nod to females everywhere, if not all the girls he’s loved before, it’s a perfect example of how Strait, the consummate country crooner, can elevate average material to glory. But it’s also an indication of just how perilously close he could come to being the Julio Iglesias of Nashville if he doesn’t watch it. Spin a song like "If You’re Thinking You Want a Stranger (There’s One Coming Home)" and you’ll remember when Strait could be downright--gasp--dangerous! --Alanna Nash

Format: Audio CD
I eagerly purchased 2004's 50 NUMBER ONES, but was disappointed with the editing that was done to cram all of those songs onto two discs. [Many of the songs on that release were shortened by 20 to 30 seconds or more!]Three years later with the sequel to that disc, 22 MORE HITS, what you get are the unedited, full-length versions of some of George Strait's biggest hits that span his more than 25 years in country music. For the casual fan, this is an excellent companion to 50 NUMBER ONES and provides an excellent overview of one of country music's most enduring artists. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

This 22 song CD is a companion set with a 2004 CD called "50 Number Ones". This latest offering, "22 More Hits", features 21 hit singles for George Strait that didn't hit #1 but were radio hits and fan favorites. There are several of his Top-20 hits missing, including "Down and Out", "King of the Mountain", and the more recent efforts: "Tell Me Something Bad About Tulsa" and "Seashores of Old Mexico".

Whatever the case, 20 songs on this collection showcase all of George Strait's Top-10 hits during the years of 1981 through 2007...the fact that so many of his songs hit #1 it's easy to mistake several of the songs on here as #1 hits even if they really didn't go all the way. Two of Strait's songs, "The Fireman" and "The Cowboy Rides Away", were among the songs that fans were puzzled by since neither song was on the 50 Number Ones collection from 2004...two of his most popular songs in concert...so, according to George Strait, this "22 More Hits" collection was put together to spotlight many of the hit songs that didn't reach #1 with a heavy emphasis on the material recorded the last 5-6 years.

This is a perfect companion set to 2004's "50 Number Ones"...both CD's feature similar cover art. The CD kicks off with his current Top-10 hit, the #3 smash "How 'Bout Them Cowgirls". The reason behind this, obviously, is to promote his current single at the same time promote his previous hit songs. "How 'Bout Them Cowgirls" is also on the album IT JUST COMES NATURAL, released in 2006. As mentioned earlier, quite a few of these hits are from the last 5-6 years with just enough '80s and '90s hit singles from Strait to entice sales...this is the track listing and the chart position each hit song achieved:

1. How 'Bout Them Cowgirls; 2007 #3

Format: Audio CD
A no-brainer. George Strait IS modern country music, plain and simple. Like, I suspect, many of his fans, I felt the admittedly impressive 2004 collection 50 Number Ones was somehow missing something. And I was right: Many of Strait's best-loved songs didn't quite make it to Number One on the charts. And so what? Every song in THIS collection was a hit, regardless of how high it climbed. And if you're a fan, I'll bet there's no more than 2 or 3 tracks here that you don't think are great.

A very minor quibble, but I felt I should point this out. 50 NUMBER ONES included extensive liner notes about the songs. 22 MORE HITS offers nothing more than the release dates and lists the albums from which these songs came. Not that the songs really need explaining or justifying, but it would have been a nice touch for the fans.

This is an essential addition to fans of George Strait or country music in general. And for those latter-day converts who have been brought to country music by people like Carrie Underwood, 22 MORE HITS is a textbook example of How To Make Great Country Music. Highly recommended.

Although I already own all of these songs on other CDs, it's great to have them grouped together. I could have just this CD with my 50 Number Ones and be happy. I haven't listened closely yet to see if this recording has the same problem with 50 Number Ones, where each song was shortened to get it to fit on one CD. I haven't noticed anything yet. Great recordings and great songs. Some of these songs I can't believe never made it to Number 1, such as Amarillo By Morning and She Let Herself Go. Of course, a lot depends on what other songs are out at the time.

As we move away from CDs, it'll be sad we don't get these types of compilation albums. It really makes you realize just how amazing George Strait is and how many great songs have been out.

Last Christmas I bought 22 More Hits for my daughter. She's been a fan of his for a very long time. She listens to the 22 More Hits almost every day as she drives. She loves it!

George Strait has a sincere, pure quality in his voice. I find some country singers a little too nasal, but George has a nice sound. He puts honest emotion into each song. Sometimes when all the songs are by one singer, they get boring, but he varies the style. This album has a pleasing mix.

I highly recommend it.

when I purchased George Strait's 50 Greatest Hits I had the option to get this one of 22 more hits. Great music. It's amazing how many great hits George has when you begin to count them.

I am not much of a country musis fan, but there are exceptions and this is one of them. George Stait always brings some pleasure to your music collections.
