Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The Country Music Foundation offers 104 songs--more than four hours of music--even though Patsy Cline died at 30 after less than a decade of recording. Given the wavering quality of her later string-laden work, four CDs might be excessive, but this set comprehensively follows Cline from upstart country boomer to pop diva. She could take charge of a song from day one, as the two 1954 radio transcriptions prove. On her vibrant late-1950s work, she moves from honky-tonk and rockabilly to soft ballads in commanding fashion. "Walkin After Midnight," her first hit, features Don Helms's gentle steel guitar while her vocals blend raw power with emotional vulnerability. By 1957, vocal groups had entered into the mix, and in 1961, hits such as "I Fall to Pieces," "She's Got You," and Willie Nelson's "Crazy" brought her pop stardom. --Marc Greilsamer

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good overview of Patsy's music July 22, 2005
Format:Audio CD
If the urban (rural?) legends are correct, Patsy was singing for neighborhood amusement as early as age 3. For an idea of how much her stature looms, consider: The CMT cable channel placed 4 of her songs on its "100 Greatest Songs in Country Music" countdown and she was the ONLY artist to place 2 in the top 10 ("Crazy" and "I Fall to Pieces"). She holds the record for most weeks on the U.S. charts for an album by a female artist (over 8 years, 251 of those weeks at #1, for "Greatest Hits". It sold over 6 million copies.). She has a 1995 Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. She's in the Country Music Hall of Fame, Hollywood Walk of Fame, Grammy Hall of Fame, and has her own postage stamp and a movie about her life. Radio and Records Magazine named her country radio's "Greatest Female Artist of the 20th Century". This box set attempts to properly examine her legacy. (It must have done pretty well: it's sold over 1.5 million copies!)

PROS:
8 of her 9 country top 10 hits are here, her 3 top 20's, and every other Top 100 country hit from while she was still alive. In addition, you get 3 pop hits that didn't chart country: "Heartaches","Who Can I Count On?", and "Strange".

Of her 45 singles (not counting posthumous reissues), you get 39 of the A and B sides and the discs are filled fairly well: Disc 1 runs 68 minutes, disc 2 67 minutes, disc 3 73 minutes, and the final disc goes 59 minutes.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Essential For Hardcore Fans September 21, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Patsy Cline's presence looms so large in 20th Century American popular music that it is tempting to believe she was a great star during her lifetime. That, however, is not really true. Cline spent most of the 1950s playing honky tonks, doing the occasional radio or television appearance, and making records that usually didn't sell. It was not until 1960 that Cline began to reach a national audience--but even then Cline's hits were not as many or as big as you might think. Then as now, music fans tended toward very specific niches, and Cline didn't fit easily within any of them, a fact that often made her a very hard sell. Even the famous "Sweet Dreams" couldn't ride the notoriety of her untimely death in a 1963 airplane crash to the top spot on the country charts, much less the pop charts.
But for all of this, Cline had a devoted fan base--and more importantly a tremendous influence on the country and pop singers that came after her. Over time, that influence would grow to a legendary status, and by the close of the 20th century she would be considered one of the greatest vocalists of her era. She would also be one of the best-selling as well.
THE PATSY CLINE COLLECTION offers all of Cline's most famous recordings and then some. This box set, which comes with a very handsome booklet detailing Cline's life and career, consists of four CDs: "Honky Tonk Merry Go Around," which includes early examples of Cline's original juke-joint style; "Moving Along," which shows her transitioning into her classic style; and "Heartaches" and "Sweet Dreams," which presents her in full "cross-over" mode, blending numerous popular musical idioms into a seamless whole.
The quality of the recordings vary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just a country singer, and what a voice!!! July 22, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I hadn't heard much of Patsy Cline's music before I bought this box set but what a revelation! Not only did she have a beautiful voice (I DID know that) but what really surprised me is the different styles of music she performed. Actually, to label her just a "country singer" is simply not accurate, as a few of the songs border on rock and roll. She could sing a ballad with achingly heartfelt emotion or belt out a rockabilly number with ease. To the nonchalant, a few songs could be considered soundalikes, but with Patsy singing them you won't care that much; like the hip cliche these days, she could sing the phone book and make it sound good!

Another reviewer mentioned that there was some "filler" on this box set. That depends on your point of view. The songs themselves are not filler material; for the most part they are first-rate. However, from the label's perspective, there may have been slightly different versions of previous songs that were added simply to pad the total amount of songs in the box set. But, I don't believe this is necessarily a bad thing, because, if it's a great song it's interesting to hear a different version of it. Again, Patsy's voice makes it all worthwhile.

I would give this collection 10 stars if it was possible! Five stars does not give it justice. Patsy Cline's voice was a gift that is appreciated even more today, as style, looks and dance beats are emphasized more than talent and ability. Patsy was taken from us WAY too soon, as this collection will attest to. If you are not already a Patsy Cline fan, buy this box set and soon you will be!
