Honestly? The title is misleading.

"Well, I bought this little jewel thinking from the title suggestion that it was all overdubs of Jim & Patsy together. The back label makes no mention that it isn't-it's only when you start delving into the CD that you find out it's not all duet stuff. So, the title is really misleading, but the music itself is great. Problem is, not all Jim Reeves fans are going to be Patsy Cline fans and vice versa and dedicated fans of either one are going to have just about everything on here already. Really, a senseless compilation."

"This "Greatest Hits" compilation (blue cover) should be a companion to their "Remembering" album (red cover), which lists Patsy first. This one is another winner in the best of the Nashville Sound tradition. High points for Jim are a moody "Welcome to My World", "Am I Losing You?" and a sadly reflective "Golden Memories and Silver Tears"-which for some reason did NOT make the Billboard charts. Patsy fans will enjoy "Sweet Dreams of You" and her only 2 #1 hits, "I Fall to Pieces" and "She's Got You". The best track is the first: "Have You Ever Been Lonely-Have You Ever Been Blue?" which was electronically created in the studio. It went to #5 on the Billboard charts in the fall of 1981, close to 20 years after their untimely deaths from plane crashes in the early 60s. As has been written before; COULD WE EVER USE THESE TWO TODAY! Jim had 29 Billboard hits after (!) his death and Patsy had 5 after hers. One suspects their careers would remain in full bloom if they were still with us. If only their planes had stayed on the ground on those fateful days..."

"I find this cd very soothing and I love singing along with it. It reminds me of days rocking with my grandmother and listening to her albums."
