Product Description

For over twenty years George has remained at the forefront in an industry always looking for the fresh new thing. George's always consistent vocals, song quality and constant charm have continued to earn the respect of his peers and audiences alike. This first ever collection of George's 50 #1 career singles is a 2-CD set including 'I Hate Everything' the new single showing signs that George isn't satisfied with just 50 #1's.

Amazon.com

When George Strait's "She'll Leave You With a Smile" moved to the top of the country charts in early 2003, the handsome Lone Star crooner bested Conway Twitty for the most No. 1 singles by a solo artist. This collection of 50 chart-toppers, spanning 22 years, showcases the Cadillac of country singers at his best, blending traditional and contemporary stylings, but never straying too far from the core of his Texas barroom sound. "Fool Hearted Memory," from 1982, proves that Strait had his uncluttered production and straightforward vocal approach down from the start, no matter how many producers guided him to his peak. Through the years, the path to superstardom dictated that he trade the crisp Western swing of "Right or Wrong" and "Ace in the Hole" for squishy, mid-tempo crowd pleasers like "Check Yes or No" and "Write This Down." But he redeemed himself with such poignant heartbreakers as "So Much Like My Dad" and "…Smile." This retrospective's one new track, "I Hate Everything," about a man in a bar who's besotted more from pain than whiskey, doesn't match up with the singer's best material, but it's still got that irresistible Strait hook: average-guy sincerity wrapped in a down-to-earth heart. --Alanna Nash

Format: Audio CD
This two-disc collection of 50 No. 1 hits from the past twenty-two years sounded too good to be true. Turns out, it is. In order to squeeze 50 tracks onto two CDs, it was necessary to edit most of the songs on this collection. While I don't have a problem with fading out a song a few seconds early, many of these songs have been seriously edited. No fewer than eight songs have been shortened by at least twenty seconds and another six have been shortened by thirty seconds or more. The worst offender is the truncated version of "Carrying Your Love With Me," which was shortened by forty-three seconds.

To the casual fan this may be no big deal, but any serious George Strait fan will notice the difference. It would have made more sense to simply add a third disc, as well as a few other top 10 songs. This may seem to fly in the face of the title, but they already included two tracks ("True" and "Run") which only reached no. 2.

For nearly a quarter of a century Gearge Strait has been one of the best of country music's traditionalists, and he certainly needed an updated greatest hits package. However, fans deserved better than this doctored version. As for me, I'm going to stick with 1995's STRAIT OUT OF THE BOX.

I am heartened to find that there are purists out there who share the same complaint I have about this CD. Cramming 51 number ones into a package is impressive...until you realize that they chopped down many of the songs (particularly the older ones) to make it all fit. They give us premature fade-outs and deleted lyrics in an attempt to market another Greatest Hits CD. It is inexcusable and not worthy of the purchase. Still, if you do happen to own this compilation, you can journey back to George's early days and experience the evolution of country music from the early '80's to today. The debate will forever rage on about the state of country music then and now and which time period was preferable, but this album can highlight those differences by charting the career of a constant bright star in country music who is now in his third decade of music-making. Outside of these historical musings, skip this album. There are several Strait Greatest Hits packages that you can buy very cheaply that encompass almost all of the songs on this album. The other albums also include many other worthy offerings that don't appear on this one like the classic, "Amarillo by Morning," "Unwound," "The Fireman," "The Cowboy Rides Away," and "Marina Del Ray." If older country isn't to your taste, just wait a few years until RCA puts out yet another compilation. Either way, give this album a pass.

First, I know, if you want the entire version of a George Strait song then by the 1995 box-set. But, that was ten years and a lot of #1 hits ago. Besides, if you're going to title a CD "50 Number Ones" then include all of each of the songs. And please, don't tell me "so what if they shortened a few songs"!

It does matter if you're a true George Strait fan. Among many others, they edited "Fool Hearted Memory" his very first #1 hit. That is truly indefensible. How about this for an idea, Mr. MCA Records, The 50 number one hits, "in toto", plus the obvious chart records not included in this musically abridged

fiasco. If it takes 3 discs, then a "so what" attitude becomes

reasonable. Add $5.00 to the price, add the songs in their

entirety and add the obvious missed ones. How about, "Unwound"

his first chart record and first top 10 hit. And then you could

include "Marina Del Rey" (#6), "Amarillo By Morning" (#4), "If You're Thinking You Want A Stranger" (#3) etc, etc. You get the idea. Of course, no one at MCA Records would take this type of idea seriously. It's the bottom line stupid. They'll do another #1 hits package in ten more years and we'll buy it and they'll laugh all the way to the bank.

I would rate this 0 stars but the lowest option available is one star. This is a very important historic release 50 # 1 hits.
I can't believe that they would edit(shorten the songs from their original version). This is the life work of one of the most important artists in Country Music history. I am sure we would have all paid a couple of bucks more if they had to go to three disks to fit the songs into the collection. I wonder if George knows that they butchered up his songs.I wish I knew how to contact George Strait to find out how he feels about this and how the record company has upset his fans.I think he should make a public statement on this and file a lawsuit. Those of you who were unaware of the edits at the time of purchase should check with your stores return policy. Does anyone know how I can contact the record company to let them know how I feel.

A very disappointed fan!!!!!

Here's a two CD set that attempts to cover the amazing career of George Strait. Personally, I dont think it's possible, and despite their best intentions, MCA Nashville was not entirely successful with this venture. All of the songs included are indeed signature george Strait; BUT, as others have pointed out, many of the songs have been edited/shortened. I consider it a slap in the face not only to the great George Strait and his songwrtiers, but more importantly, to his fans. With that said, the sound quality and layout of the discs are great; and the recordings are originals (although, often editied for length). If I were a true George Strait Fan, I'd go with the more complete Box Set. However, this is an affordable way to get a significant number of his hits on a 2 CD Set.
