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.
The track listing above is correct. The one below from ajs227 is something else.
