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.
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 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!!!!!
