Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

When the hits come as effortlessly as they do to Strait, it's easy for an artist to lose interest. The man who ushered in country's hat-act era has spent a career bouncing from lifeless and fluffy to hard and soulful. This four-CD box tells the story from 1976 (when he cut the first of three singles for Houston indie D Records) through 1995. At his best--"Does Fort Worth Ever Cross Your Mind," for example--he defines the modern heart song, but lightweight stuff such as "Hollywood Squares" won't win him new converts. --John Morthland

5.0 out of 5 stars The Strait and Narrow August 13, 2003
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Strait Country February 6, 2002
Format:Audio CD
George Strait's influence on modern country music is immense: all you have to do is turn on your local country station and you'll hear some of his countless clones twanging out a tune. Thankfully, Strait didn't follow the pack when he emerged as a hitmaker back in 1981 with the honkytonker "Unwound." Country radio at that time was dominated by the slick pop sounds of Kenny Rogers and Babs Mandrell and the Urban Country crowd. Instead, Strait (along with Ricky Skaggs) returned country to its roots and built upon them on his own terms (as STRAIT OUT OF THE BOX amply attests).
All of Strait's MCA singles through 1994 are included on this four-disc box set except for the "Unwound" imitation "Down And Out" and the dreary "Overnight Success" (smart omissions by the compiler Strait). Yet they make up only forty-two of the seventy-two tracks found on this set. It's those remaining thirty tracks of various origins which make this collection worthwhile for Strait fans who already own the hits.
The set opens with three rare singles that Strait recorded between 1976 and 1979 for the Texas-based D Records. The first two sound like they were cut in too high a key and the only noteworthy thing about any of them is that they were written by Strait (except for a holiday tune, he has contributed no songs to his many MCA albums). Also found on disc one are three previously unreleased recordings that Strait made for MCA between 1982 and 1983. All are good, particularly the lovely and simple "Any Old Love Will Do."
The big finds on the remaining three discs are Strait's collaborations with other artists.

5.0 out of 5 stars The BEST Box Set Ever! November 17, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I can thank my father for my love of country music. I was brought up listening to everything from Patsy Cline to Merle Haggard to Conway Twitty. Out of all the music I was reared up on, I heard more George Strait that anyone else. My father, knowing a good thing when he heard it, had every George Strait album and tape released. I knew the words to "The Fireman" before I could count to 100 and can clearly remember dancing to "I Cross My Heart" at prom. George Strait, in one way or another, has been a constant throughout my life, as well as every other country fan. That's why the man's a legend and why his popularity seems to grow with each passing year. In a world where traditional country music is shunned, it's refreshing to know that George has remained as popular now as he did 20 years ago.
"Strait Out of the Box [BOX SET]" is THE George Strait album every fan should own. It's got everything from "The Fireman" to "Check Yes or No" as well as some singles that the average fan has probably never heard of. All of his hits, from the late 1970's up to 1995, are packed into this 4-CD box set. The songs are convienantely listed from earliest to latest, each cd representing a certain period in George's legendary career. All of my personal favorites: "Amarillo By Morning", "If I Know Me", "The Cowboy Rides Away", "Nobody In His Right Mind..", and "Easy Come, Easy Go" are all included as well as a whole bunch of others that I could take all day listing. This is not one of those box sets where you go "Hey! Why's that song not on here?". This box set has every classic Strait song you can think of and more.
In short, if you like George Strait and you like country, you MUST own this box set!
