Patsy Cline's Greatest Hits
Patsy Cline – Patsy Cline’s Greatest Hits
Cut at Sterling Sound directly from the original master tape. This was a straight transfer, bypassing the console altogether. There was no EQ of any kind. A true direct transfer, using a VMS 80, the most sophisticated lathe. You’re hearing the master tape!
What praises haven’t been lauded the immortal singing talent of the late, great Patsy Cline? She died at the height of her career, at age 30, with two other stars of the Grand Ole Opry, and her manager, in a private plane crash near Camden, Tennessee, on the group’s return to Nashville from Kansas City. Before that ill-fated flight, though, she left a musical legacy as one of the most influential and successful female vocalists of the 20th Century.
In the late 1950s and the ’60s, country music was essentially a singles medium. This album, first released in 1967, collects a dozen of Patsy’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. And trust us, on this 180-gram QRP pressing, mastered by Sterling Sound, Cline’s seductive vocals have never sounded clearer or richer.
