5 Classic Albums

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Universal's 2012 budget-line box set 5 Classic Albums is a tidy, affordable way to pick up five of George Strait's greatest albums: Strait from the Heart, Does Fort Worth Ever Cross Your Mind, Livin' It Up, The Road Less Traveled, and If You Ain't Lovin' (You Ain't Livin'). These five were not released back to back; they date from throughout Strait's career, so this little box winds up as an effective demonstration of how consistent the singer has been throughout his career. And it offers plenty of bang for the buck.
