Originally released as a limited retailer exclusive in 2016, the four-disc McGraw: The Ultimate Collection
is the most comprehensive Tim McGraw
compilation yet released -- a none-too-small accomplishment, considering that just a year before Curb released the double-disc set 35 Biggest Hits
. That 2015 compilation remains a little more user-friendly than McGraw
, which contains three discs of hits and deep cuts (there is a lot of overlap between this and 35 Biggest Hits
), plus a disc of rarities. These are covers, live versions, tracks that showed up on soundtracks, and other stray songs, and it not only provides a nice enticement for the hardcore fans to pick up McGraw
, it helps illustrate how there's a lot more to Tim McGraw
than what is commonly heard on the radio.
