Patsy Cline- Patsy Cline's Golden Hits
I think of Patsy Cline as one of those artists that is impossible for anyone to hate. That voice was just too damn golden.
This is a pretty interesting album to have. I did some research on it and it's kind of a rarity nowadays. The only one of her really well known hits on here is "Walking After Midnight", but the rest of the album is full of gems. I especially dig "Three Cigarettes in an Ashtray" and "I Don't Wanta".
Anyways, reason why this is a rarity of sorts, is that it was released on Everest Records in 1962 and never re-released. The exact date of the release is unknown as well. I'm not saying it's worth any money, but I always think it's cool when you have something that isn't widely available.
Here's a cool video of her performing "Walking After Midnight" in 1958. Such a shame that she died at such an early age:
