72 tracks compiled and annotated by George himself, including every one of his 30 #1 hits plus 11 more chart singles, 19 LP tracks and 11 rarities, plus some unreleased tracks, like his duet with Frank Sinatra on Fly Me to the Moon ! These songs ruled ’80s and ’90s country radio: George’s #1 hit version of Bob Wills’ Right or Wrong; Love Without End, Amen; I’ve Come to Expect It from You; All My Ex’s Live in Texas; Am I Blue; Ace in the Hole; The Chair; If I Know Me , and more.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
