In 1961 Patsy Cline performed at the Cimarron Ballroom in Tulsa, Oklahoma, backed by a hot Western-swing band led by steel guitar great Leon McAuliffe. Although Cline had just come out of the hospital following a serious automobile accident, you wouldn't know that from listening to her voice on this tape of the performance, unearthed in 1997. Although the tape has a few glitches, both Cline and the band come through loud and clear on a program that ranges from her hits to Western-swing standards and even a couple of rock & roll covers. The between-tunes banter offers an intriguing insight into Cline's brassy, big-hearted personality. --Rick Mitchell

This is just like I remember her at her last concert before she died.
Like being there

"If, like me, you are ALREADY a big fan of Patsy Cline, what this CD will give you is a sense of what she was like as a performer. Not as a singer on the starched, staged Grand Ole Opry; not as a recording artist in the studio, but as an entertainer. You hear what her fans of the day bought a ticket to hear. Yes, the audio quality is inferior (it was 1961, after all) but if you want to get to know a side of Patsy Cline that you won't hear on her "Greatest Hits" this is a must-have. As most other fans, I only wish more locked up, live PC material would become available."
It's pure pleasure to hear Patsy Cline in a live environment

"It's pure pleasure to hear Patsy Cline in a live environment. Her amazing voice and gregarious personality come through like gangbusters on this disc. While some tracks have problems (feedback etc.) overall I found this to be very listenable and most enjoyable. Cline was a tremendous vocalist and on this disc, it is all the more apparent since its her first show after her car accident. A rollicking show and a must for any Cline fan. I'm quite happy with this disc."
