AllMusic Review by

This three-CD best-of covers some of neo-traditionalist country star George Strait's best-loved songs, including his signature "If You Ain't Lovin' (You Ain't Livin')," "Let's Fall to Pieces Together," and the ruefully witty ""Fifteen Years Going Up (And One Night Coming Down." Strait's irresistible mix of country music tradition, high-quality songwriting, and smooth, affable vocals are much in evidence throughout, making this collection an ideal starting point for anyone eager for a grounding in classic '80s country, before the genre became almost indistinguishable from mainstream pop.
