Overview

It's not especially difficult to compile a satisfying and listenable album from Patsy Cline's chart hits, and this solid and serviceable set offers a dozen simply brilliant songs from Cline's catalog. The biggest and best-known hits are here -- "Walkin' After Midnight," "Crazy," "Sweet Dreams," "He's Got You" -- as well as a few equally beautiful lesser-knowns, such as "You're Stronger Than Me" and "Why Can't He Be You," all of which capture her superb voice and the gloriously lush "countrypolitan" production from Owen Bradley at its best. In short, if you're a casual listener looking for a good single-disc Patsy Cline set, this is a great way to go, except that this happens to be the third go-round for this set, which was first issued on LP in 1967, given a new cover and upgraded to CD in 1988, and now issued again on CD with the rather generic 1967 cover art restored. This is great collection from a great artist, but you may want to make sure that you haven't already bought this set already, and if you have, this edition doesn't offer any inducement to upgrade.
