Shake Hands with George Strait

"This "Best of" set from the Millennium Collection is a good introduction to George Strait. His delivery is expressive. His strength is in finding good material. Sentimental songs like "Love Without End, Amen" about a father & son that Strait nails tug at the heartstrings, "Let me tell you a secret about a father's love..." "I've Come to Expect It From You" has an addictive tune filled with romantic disappointment, "I guess I should thank my unlucky stars that I'm alive & that you're the way you are." "Easy Come, Easy Go" is another Dean Dillon-penned track ("I've Come to Expect It From You" & "Famous Last Words") whose swaying melody fits like a glove. "If You Ain't Lovin' (You Ain't Livin')" is Texas swing that sounds like Hank Williams' little brother. The liner notes in the booklet indicate that all of these selections were #1 Country hits. While there is obviously a lot more Strait music out there, but this is a good way to shake hands with George Strait. Enjoy!"
Not the Strait set you would want to own

"As a huge country music fan, I have always loved George Strait. Over the years, he has managed to turn out hit after hit after hit. He is one of country's best stars, and many country fans refer to him as 'King George.' And in 2002, he was awarded a compilation in UMG's 20th Century Masters series.
This set spans 1983-1994, a period where he was on country radio stations almost every day (he still is). He was at his peak during this time, and this set does a great job documenting it.
Read on for the positives and negatives.
-Most of the big Strait singles are here. 'You Look So Good In Love,' 'Famous Last Words,' 'Baby Blue,' and 'Easy Come, Easy Go' all appear on this set.
-The sound quality is superb!
-THERE ARE WAY TOO MANY SONGS MISSING! Where are 'Check Yes Or No,' 'Adalida,' 'Unwound,' 'Right Or Wrong,' 'Fool Hearted Memory,' 'Marina Del Rey,' 'Amarillo By Morning' and his great duet with Frank Sinatra 'Fly Me To The Moon'?
George Strait stayed true to MCA his entire career, so it was easy for UMG to issue yet another Strait compilation. But since he had numerous hits that got radio airplay, it's virtually impossible to pick 12 songs for a compilation.
Overall, you'd best buy '22 More Hits' or 'Strait Out Of The Box.' But my advice is, unless you are an easily-pleased Strait fan or a die-hard who has to have everything Strait ever put out, just avoid this.
Recommended, but only for really casual or die-hard Strait fans."

"Take George's "Ten Strait Hits" in its original running order, drop 2 tracks ("Overnight Success" and "Drinking Champagne"), tack on four tracks at the end and -- viola -- "The Best of George Strait: The Millennium Collection." Fine music, great price, but docked a star for redundancy.
The "eco-friendly packaging"? How often do you toss your CDs in the recycle bin? Isn't the whole point of CDs that they are supposed to last a long, long time? This packaging won't last a month.
