This 1991 recording is notable for the rare appearance of George Strait's excellent road band, Ace in the Hole, on three tracks. Strait and the band romp through "Home in San Antone" and update Hank Williams updating Emmett Miller on the yodeling "Lovesick Blues." Best of all is Strait's version of "Milk Cow Blues," a Delta blues tune that became a favorite of Texas swing musicians in the 1930s. Strait has never sung with more style and soul on record. The rest of the album balances catchy contemporary country (the hit "You Know Me Better Than That") with more traditional fare (Harlan Howard's instant classic "Her Only Bad Habit Is Me"). --Rick Mitchell

This 1991 album is one of George Strait's quieter affairs, in the mold of his later, 2005 CD, Somewhere Down In Texas. The hits include the title track - a Number 3 hit - and the two Numbes 1s, "If I Know Me" and the rather similarly entitled "You Know Me Better Than That". But what's good about this CD is how he balances the modern hits with the three classic country covers - and, this being George Strait, they are all sound equally traditional. His signature Texas Swing re-emerges on "Home In San Antone" and, on another highlight, the cover of Bob Wills' "Milk Cow Blues", where an almost blues style prevails. The covers continue with "Lovesick Blues", a song Hank Williams himself covered. This track only made it to Number 23 - the first time Strait had ever seen such a low chart placing, which he puts down to the yodeling and mantains that, consequently, radio refused to play it. The one weaker track is the rather sleepy "Anything You Can Spare", but the better tracks easily outweigh it; namely, "I've Convinced Everybody But Me", "Is It Already Time" and "Her Only Bad Habit Is Me".

Pleased with this cd and it was good to listen to the singing of George Strait, one of the best C&W singers.
A 5 star rating is deserved.

Chill of an Early Fall - Best Strait Album Ever 1 Jan 2000
By Jason W. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
(I was not given proper credit for this review so I'll resubmit here.) =)
This album is by far the best to date by George Strait. There is not a song on this album that isn't flat out terrific. Strait's "Ace in the Hole Band" is featured on a few tunes: a cover of Hank Williams "Lovesick Blues" and my all-time favorite Strait tune, the un-released "Milk Cow Blues." The musical talents of his band are evident on the latter, and listening to the steel guitar (not to mention a sort of duel between the lead guitar and the piano) will give you chills.
Other great songs: "Home in San Antone," "Chill of an Early Fall," and "If I Know Me" (the latter two will definitely bring a tear to the eye of anyone with the least bit of sentimentality).
A marvelous album. A beautiful blend of swing and traditional influences are a treat to the ear. For Strait fans, this compilation is merely confirmation of what we already know--this man is awesome. If you are not yet a Strait fan, this one will definitely convert you! Ten out of ten!

ONE OF STRAIT's BEST 1 Jan 2005
By David Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have given reviews of quite a few George Strait CDs, and mentioned four of them being in my top FIVE. This is the other one. First off, I cannot believe that there can be ANY negative comments about it.This CD is George Strait at his best, it has everything you could want in country music: Humor, love, fiddles, sentiment, and great lyrics. It has my second favorite song "You Know Me Better Than That" (Only surpassed by "Living And Living Well"), it has "If I know Me", "Milk Cow Blues" (Talk about great western swing), "Lovesick Blues, and two gems you cannot get from "Strait Out Of The Box" "Home In San Antone", and "I've Convinced Everyone But Me". This is really one of Strait's best.

Another Great One 15 Nov 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This CD gives a good balance of everything George is about.."Milk Cow Blues" is one of the standouts on this one that you won't hear on the radio. Another song that really stands up is "Is It Already Time"..If you want a real good cry or riding home after a long night out at the honky-tonk, plug this in the player!
