The Limited Series is the name of Garth Brooks' second box set of albums. (It is also the name of his first box set). The set was released in 2005 to be sold exclusively at Wal-Mart and Sam's Club stores. It comprises his studio albums Sevens (1998) and Scarecrow (2001), the live album Double Live (1998), and a bonus CD entitled The Lost Sessions which was also issued separately. The Lost Sessions also includes three singles: "Good Ride Cowboy", "Love Will Always Win" and "That Girl Is a Cowboy".


The set contains the following previously released albums:

The Double Live album contained one of three new covers, themed much like the original album. These covers were of Brooks' live performances recorded after Double Live was released: The last show of Brooks' final tour in 2000, and the special concert aboard the USS Enterprise in 2001. A third cover shows special "behind the scenes" moments during Brooks' live tours.

The set contains an All Access DVD, containing footage from Brooks' live shows, as well as a photo gallery and the music videos for "Standing Outside the Fire", "Callin' Baton Rouge", "Wrapped Up in You" and "Ain't Goin' Down ('Til the Sun Comes Up)". The DVD also contains approximately 40 minutes of interviews with Brooks.

The set contains a booklet with information about all the albums in the set, as well as the lyrics for the songs, in lieu of the usual CD booklets.

Shortly after the box set was released, The Lost Sessions was re-released individually, featuring six new songs, and a re-sequenced track listing.
