Latest, Greatest, Staitest Hits

By  George Strait

Very Good Condition

Latest Greatest Straitest Hits is the fourth compilation album by George Strait. It was released by MCA Records. The album represents his greatest hits since the release of his 1995 box set Strait Out of the Box. The set contains two newly recorded tracks. "The Best Day" was released as a single and hit #1 on Billboard's Hot Country Singles & Tracks. Although not a single, "Murder on Music Row" also charted in the Top 40 from unsolicited airplay.

The album doesn't include any singles from his 1999 album Always Never the Same. Another notable omission is "I Just Want to Dance with You", a #1 hit from 1998.

In March 2003 the album was certified Double Platinum by the RIAA

A Review:

With a career that spans nearly 20 years, 26 albums that have been certified platinum or multi-platinum, and countless number-one and Top-Ten hits, it's probably easy for George Strait to gather some songs for a greatest-hits album. The cream of the crop turn up here, drawn from his four most recent studio albums. "Carrying Your Love With Me," "Adalida," "Blue Clear Sky," and "Today My World Slipped Away" are just a few of the celebrated songs that grace this prodigious 15-song anthology. But no country artist's greatest-hits album is complete without the obligatory addition of at least two new songs, and Strait fulfills this obligation with a slightly appealing duet with fellow country artist Alan Jackson, crooning about "Murder on Music Row," and "The Best Day," which has filled the airwaves of country radio. It takes only one listen to Latest Greatest Straitest Hits to remind listerners that George Strait continues to hit them out of the park and will go down in history as one of the top country entertainers of all time.
