Probably the finest female artist of all time, this CD must be the bargain of all time! Patsy could sing absolutely anything and make it sound her own, but this collection, in superb sound, highlights her greatest hits and is REAL country music.Everyone should have at least one Patsy Cline CD in their collection. If you don't have any then this is the one to buy, and at a bargain price! Absolute magic!

Like country, pop, heartbreaking voices? Don't buy a half of lager, buy this at this ridiculous price. If you don't purr with enjoyment you are personally invited to come and duff me up. The greatest bargain I've seen in many a long year. It's also genuwine country, not hand-me-down rubbish. And if you get the chance (difficult) see the biopic.

why is it that all the great singers get killed in air crashes and PATSY CLINE was one of the greatest. this c.d. is PATSY at her best showing her versatility in singing all types of songs some wellknown some not so wellknown but all sung beautifully. i recently bought a dvd about PATSY CLINE during her early days and although it is in black and white and a little jumpy it really gives you an insight into her days upto her untimely death.back to this c.d. at this price it must be the bargain of all time.

Patsy Cline's is a story cut tragically short. Too short, in fact, to be able to determine how her life and career would have developed. That she had a great voice is undeniable, although the sum of her recordings is rather limited given she was only thirty when she died.

The CD on review is her 'Essential Collection' one which contains just 18 numbers, but does not include her great 'I Fall to Pieces' recording.

One knows she is described as a Country and Western singer (some describing her as the greatest), but one is not sure that that is the full story. This CD carries at least four so-called crossover songs, which leads one to believe that her singing style may well have fitted into almost any genre.

It is fair to say that three or four of the songs on this CD are not worthy of Patsy Cline's great voice, so poor are the lyrics, and it is felt she would have been better advised to have been directed to the work of the great lyricists and arrangers.

What a tragedy it was that she was lost to the world at such a young age, for one believes she would have gone on to truly great things.

Rest in Peace Patsy.

If you like Patsy Cline this DVD IS a MUST ! What a totally awesome voice and such a wasted talent to die so young ! I think that she has the most haunting voice I have ever heard. There is not one bad track on this CD and I will NEVER get sick of playing it !! I have quite a few of Patsy's CD'S and DVD'S and this has got to be rated as one of if not the best !! Buy and enjoy....you WON'T regret it !!!

What can you say about Patsy Cline ? Fantastic voice, such a shame she didn't live to fulfil her undoubted potential as one of the leading C & W female singers.
This CD is a great purchase at £2.98 including postage !!
The reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because it is missing 'Sweet Dreams' which has to be part of any 'Essential' compilation in my opinion.

A great value collection of Patsy's songs. I purchased this album for "Crazy" which is my favourite. Sound quality is good and even though Crazy is my best I still enjoy all the other titles. Her voice is very strong but enjoyable. A good purchase.

Patsy's voice is so good, it brings a lump in your throat, she has something that no other singer (male or female) has ever done to me, I was nearly crying with emotion listening to this album. Beautiful if you appreciate talent, real pure talent.

This cd is by a female singer who unfortunatly was killed in a car crash at the height of her fame, the singer was that very popular country and western singer Patsy Cline, some of the songs on the cd are crazy and she's got you.
