Synopsis

Album Description
Of the 20 songs on The Very Best Of George Strait 1981-1987, 'Down and Out', 'Marina Del Rey', 'Right Or Wrong' & 'Let's Fall To Pieces Together' are some of the more catchy, well sung tunes which you can't help but sing along to. On this collection, you get the songs that made him a star in the first place, beginning with 'Unwound', a top ten country hit. This was followed by 'Down And Out' which was only a top twenty hit. After that, his career really took off. He proved his ability to sing songs in a variety of moods and tempos, ranging from tender ballads to swinging up-tempo songs, all delivered in his particular style - a blend of traditional country and western swing, suitably updated from the eighties. Universal.

CD Reviews

George's first 20 hits
Peter Durward Harris | Leicester England | 02/18/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"You could say that this compilation is unimaginative - it simply contains the first twenty hits of George's long and distinguished career, in date order. Yet that is exactly what makes this collection so good. George was one of the most important new stars of country music in the eighties, and he sustained a successful career throughout the nineties and beyond.On this collection, you get the songs that made him a star in the first place, beginning with Unwound, a top ten country hit. This was followed by Down and out which was only a top twenty hit. After that, his career really took off. He proved his ability to sing songs in a variety of moods and tempos, ranging from tender ballads to swinging up-tempo songs, all delivered in his particular style - a blend of traditional country with western swing, suitably updated from the eighties.Among the classics included here, you will find Does Fort Worth ever cross your mind,, All my ex's live in Texas, Right or wrong and Let's fall to pieces together. In case you're thinking that this CD stops too soon, don't worry - there is a second volume covering the period to 1993. Buy and enjoy them both."
It's 'Greatest Hits' and 'Greatest Hits Vol. 2' combined!
Johnny Boy | Hockessin, DE | 04/27/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have always wondered why 'Greatest Hits' and 'Greatest Hits Vol. 2' had never been put together on one CD. And obviously the record company (MCA) wondered that to. In the United Kingdom, substituting the 'Greatest Hits' records, Universal released 'The Very Best of George Strait 1981-1987.'

I love this CD! It's got all of George's classics from the 1980s on one CD. 'Ocean Front Property,' 'Right Or Wrong,' 'You Look So Good In Love,' 'All My Ex's Live In Texas,' and 'The Chair' are all on this set for your listening pleasure.

And, Universal gets some extra points for remastering this set. The sound quality is just great!

Overall, if you like George Strait and you haven't bought (but are considering) buying 'Greatest Hits' and 'Greatest Hits Vol. 2,' don't. Buy this set instead.

Highly recommended for any George Strait fan. A must-have. ENJOY!!!"
Really is the very best of George Strait

"This cd is for George Strait fans. There is not a bad song on this cd.
Well worth the money, I am glad that I ordered it. I never had any cd's from George Strait before and now I have all his early hits.
