5.0 out of 5 stars It Just Keeps Getting Better October 10, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Although there are more Patsy Cline remasters and compilations than you can count (over 200 with Amazon), this one has the best sound. Maybe because it has the newest technology, but remastering is as much art as science, and Doug Schwartz is one of the best. Compliments to him for a terrific job. The voice track stands out better from the music tracks and has an amazing amount of detail and reality.

And the voice, of course, is the standard of what country music is all about. Whether it's the lament of "Leaving on Your Mind" or the oldest standard, "Always", no one could wrap around a song and put more into it/get more out of it than she did. Simply and without anything extra. No matter how many or few of her albums you have, buy this one to discover a new presence to her voice and fall in love with her again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Patsy made female country singers acceptable September 27, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Patsy set the standard for female country singers, with many of those that followed trying (or so it seemed) to be the next Patsy Cline - even today, over forty years after her death in a plane crash. Many compilations are available but most of them seem to miss something important. Not this one - all of Patsy's classic songs can be found here.

Crazy was a top ten pop hit in America and (in 1990) a top twenty hit in Britain. Heartaches was Patsy's first American top forty pop hit. Don Gibson wrote Sweet dreams and had a big country hit with it, but once Patsy recorded it, it became much more popular and will be forever thought of as a Patsy Cline song. She's got you was an American top twenty pop hit and was also Patsy's first British hit, albeit only a minor one I fall to pieces was yet another top twenty pop hit in America. Walking after midnight is the song that began it all for Patsy in the fifties. Poor man's roses, Back in baby's arms and Leaving on your mind are other Patsy classics included here. Faded love, a cover of a Bob Wills song that, like Sweet dreams, is regarded as a Patsy Cline classic despite being a cover.

Also here are Patsy's fine interpretations of Lovesick blues, Half as much (Hank Williams), True Love (Bing Crosby), San Antonio rose (Bob Wills), Always (written by Irving Berlin) and many other fine songs.

If you just want one CD of Patsy's music, make it this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars It Doesn't Get Better Than This November 16, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Whether you love classic country music or hate it, whether you were there to hear Patsy sing "Walkin' After Midnight" in 1957 or saw the movie "Sweet Dreams" OR just discovered her, this is a compilation that will not let you down. This Winchester, Virginia, native thrilled the music world like no other and continues to do so, long after her untimely death in a plane crash with country singers Hawkshaw Hawkins and Cowboy Copas. Patsy could make her voice break and thus break our hearts with her soulful rendering of songs written (and often recorded) by some of country music's greatest. Consider "Sweet Dreams" (Don Gibson), "Crazy" (Willie Nelson), "I Fall to Pieces", "She's Got You", "Why Can't He Be You?" (Hank Cochran), "Back in Baby's Arms" (Bob Montgomery whose life has been rich in "country", including a pre-Crickets duo with Buddy Holly), "Faded Love" (co-written by Bob Wills of Texas Playboys fame), "Leavin' On Your Mind" (co-written by country/honky tonk great Webb Pierce) and "Always" by one of the all-time great composers of American standards, Irving Berlin. If you want just one Patsy Cline CD, this is probably the one for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Timeless Treasure August 26, 2004
Format:Audio CD
The Definitive Collection if definitively great!!! I have heard Crazy and Walking after Midnight occasionally during my life and always enjoyed them, but recently decided to find out more about this incredible lady. To say her voice is mesmerizing would be an understatement! It's obvious after hearing her songs on this cd why she continues to win new fans today and will continue to do so for many years to come.

Floyd Cramer on piano and the Jordanaires singing back up help take you back to a classic time in music.

This cd is so refreshing when compared to what we have to choose from the modern music scene.

For those of you who don't listen to country music ( that would be me! ), don't let that deter you from buying this cd. These tracks are much more than any simple music categorization. Take a walk back in time. You will be glad you did!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Collection August 29, 2006
By Buffy
Format:Audio CD
This is a terrific collection with a wide range of songs from one of the most spectacular voices the music industry has ever heard. Patsy Cline's gorgeous voice and the emotion she put into her songs makes them heartbreaking to listen to, or if an upbeat song, especially fun to listen to. She just can't be topped. I only wish there were a Patsy Cline Christmas album available. I highly recommend this CD to any Patsy Cline or country music fan. Great selection of hit songs!

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than today's queens of country. April 25, 2005
By H3@+h
Format:Audio CD
Her couple 12 track "Greatest Hits" albums are indeed great, but this is truly the definitive collection of Patsy Cline. 22 remastered tracks in all, that sound even better than you remember. If you're searching for THE female voice in classic country, search no more. I enjoy every song here, but the stand-outs surely are "I Fall To Pieces", "Walkin' After Midnight", "Back In Baby's Arms", and of course "Crazy". If today's country radio sounded this good, I might still listen to it. These songs are wonderful to play around the house, with your kids, and especially with your "True Love". Highly recommended.
