Overview

Hey now, all you pop-country partisans who want to hear how good it can get, check out Patsy Cline on these 14 Owen Bradley-produced monuments. Cline effortlessly navigated the pop and country worlds, bringing dignity and style to both and sounding like she belonged there by dint of birth. Bradley's stunning arrangements employ washes of orchestral bravura ("You Were Only Fooling [While I Was Falling in Love]") or a small combo ("That's My Desire") to heighten the impact of Cline's spare, intimate delivery. His partnership with Patsy brooks favorable comparison with the subtlety and character of Nelson Riddle's and Gordon Jenkins's work with towering pop artists such as Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, and Rosemary Clooney. Typical of Cline's repertoire, the songwriter credits here -- Cole Porter ("True Love"), Irving Berlin ("Always"), Floyd Tillman ("I Love You So Much It Hurts"), and Pee Wee King ("You Belong To Me") -- reflect her and Bradley's catholic approach to music. Their mind-set produced beautiful, enduring art, something that exists beyond artificial stylistic boundaries. This well-chosen, well-annotated collection may offer only a narrow focus on the whole of Cline's legacy, but its lessons are as timeless as the performances recalled here. David McGee

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Heather Phares
True Love: A Standards Collection presents Patsy Cline's pop side with a variety of classic songs like "I Love You So Much It Hurts," "You Belong to Me," "Bill Bailey, Won't You Please Come Home," and "Always," which was a Top 20 country hit. All of the tracks, recorded between 1961 and 1963, feature Owen Bradley's lush arrangements and have been digitally remastered. Though Cline's best work always had a strong pop element to it anyway, True Love: A Standards Collection is another welcome reminder that her voice still transcends musical genres.
