In the late 1950s and the '60s, country music was essentially a singles medium. This album, first released in 1967 and reissued on compact disc in 1988, collects Patsy Cline's biggest hits--all of them from the country singles market--including "Walkin' After Midnight," "Sweet Dreams (Of You)," "Crazy," and "I Fall to Pieces." Producer Owen Bradley surrounds Cline's full-throated, emotionally charged vocals with lush, sophisticated arrangements that set the standard for Nashville's "countrypolitan" sound. Before Shania Twain found a new (though not necessarily improved) way to combine country and pop in the 1990s, this was the top-selling country album of all time by a female artist. --Rick Mitchell

The queen of heartbreak will make you believe...
There's a reason this hits collection has been in print for so long. It's the most concise collection of Patsy Cline's country/pop hits that you can find. From the Willie Nelson penned "Crazy" to "I Fall to Pieces," there is not a dud on here. The songs were all hits before my time, but they still have that special something. A Michael Nesmith cover of "I Fall to Pieces" on Loose Salute was how I came to know of Patsy Cline (thank you Mike). If you have never heard her, do yourself a favor and go listen to either of the above mentioned songs (or any of the songs on this album), then treat yourself and get this CD.
