I was watching television (one of those preview channels) a few minutes ago, when a trivia question came on. The question was, "Which country singer did Beverly D'Angelo portray in a l980 film?" Of course, we all know the answer, but I was pleased to hear the announcer say, "Beverly D'Angelo portrayed the ONE AND ONLY Patsy Cline, in The Coal Miner's Daughter". It is wonderful that even more people than we realize recognize Patsy's greatness. To Lisa: I haven't received my "Remembering Patsy" video yet, but as soon as it arrives I'll let you all know.

Hello Everyone! I was delighted to see your entry, Don. I am impressed with your readiness for the Reunion this weekend in Winchester. Yes, the Happy Wagon filled with Canadians will be there, as usual. Jimmy, I think your idea to share Per's wonderful site with Fan Club members who don't have internet access is a terrific idea! My mom, Annie ALWAYS looks so forward to the weekend's festivities and cherishes her new friendships. It reminds her of how her friendship was with Patsy - "the more, ther merrier". Indeed, the whole family is excited about the events and seeing the friends we have made and meeting new ones, too. I would be happy to share some of the stories or contents of some of the letters Patsy wrote to my mother, on her behalf, if anyone out there would be interested. I'll work on a plan with my mom on our way to Winnie. See y'all soon!!

Patsy Cline has always been one of my favorite singers. This past week-end I saw a play called "Forever Patsy Cline" in Okoboji, IA. It was wonderful. The young lady who played Patsy was very good but there is no one quite like Patsy Cline.

Howdy Folks, Just wanted to say hi. Happy Birthday to Julie. We love ya. Also, I am going to Camden this weekend instead of Winchester (couldn't afford the trip to Virginia). Anyway, I will be taking lots of pics along the way. I will try to get some that Per doesn't have and see if he will scan them. Anyway, everyone going to Winchester, have a blast for me. I hope to see you all there next Labor Day. And who knows what kind of trouble I'll find in Camden. Ya'll have fun and be careful. See you when we get back. I'll be loving you, Always, Mark

Love your interest in Patsy Cline. My brothers knew her and Charlie Dick. They would drive them to some shows in Washington DC area. Did you know there is a Matchbox Memorial car Celebrating Patsy. It is a red 57 T-bird in a white blister package with her picture on the package. Two dollars is going to the museum fund in the Winchester Va. area. If you want more information on this my brothers and I formed AD-Ventures and got permission from Charlie to produce the only Matchbox Car in memorial to a person. Who else but Patsy Cline. If you want more information just e-mail me and I could scan a picture of the item to you and if anyone is interested in purchasing some I will give the information to you or them. We want to help raise money for the museum so everyone coming to Winchester could have a real feel for a wonderful person. There were only 10,000 produced in Sept. 1996. Thanks and God Bless, R. Swartz

Hey gang, Saw a review of "Cimmaron Ballroom" in Country Weekly this week. The cover has one of my favorites, Lorrie Morgan on it. Have not had a chance to read yet, will do as I go to Winchester this week. I see Don Worthington has signed in. He always does a great job on reporting on Patsy Cline. Can't wait to see what he is working on! Heading to Nashville next week. Margery Harris from the UK will be going down too and will do some Patsy sight seeing. Thanks to the Winch. Chamber of Comm. and the Handley Library I will be able to use the libraries internet equiped pc to surf the net w/ some Patsy fan's that don't have the internet. We will log on Friday. See ya'll in Winchester!! Always, Jimmy

To: Per Jonsson; From: Don Worthington, reporter; The Winchester Star, Winchester, Va. The Star is interested in including information on your web site in an article it plans to run about Patsy Cline this week (Aug 25-30).

We'd like to know how you became interested in Patsy Cline, what keeps your interest, and any specifics about your web site. It certainly seems to be the most comprehensive web site to Patsy out there. Do you keep expanding it? Please respond ASAP as we'll likely have some followup questions. Thank you, Don

Hi All - Just got back from four great days in Nashville. Saw the show, "A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline" at the Texas Troubadour Theatre with Terri Williams as Patsy. Terri did quite a good job. I've heard from folks who've seen the show before that she keeps getting better at it. The Grand Ole Opry museum at Opryland has a beautiful tribute to Patsy, as does the Country Music Hall of Fame. Nashville is a town that really appreciates Patsy Cline and her legacy. You can tell how much she is loved there. It's too bad her home town of Winchester doesn't appreciate her as they should (though I understand that it's getting better there). Any Patsy fan, or country music fan should get to Nashville when you can -- it's well worth it.

Patsy Cline brings back to our modern day life the wholesomeness that is seriously missing today, especially in romance and love. She is OUR personal favourite: Blue Angel and Blue Bird.

I think that she is one of the best, if not the best country singer. I love every song that she has ever sang. I just wish that I could fine more of me tapes. I never really cared for country western singing until I heard her sing. Being from New York State, you didn't listen to country western music. Then I moved to Shreverport Louisiana and I wish that they would play more of her songs on the radio.

Howdy y'all, especially to the lurkers out there who like to visit but are too shy to sign in: come on in & join us! Mark, honey, you insult weasels when you call Bill McCall one! The Jones book, especially, tells all about "WS Stevenson". I'm still trying to find a song he *doesn't* lay claim to. He'd purchase controlling rights to songs, change a lyric here, a note there, then suddenly he's the co-writer, meaning he could now get 50% of the money. When "Stranger in My Arms" was released, this is how he stole yet again from Patsy, who composed the tune -- he credited his own wife as an arranger! I urge y'all to read a PC bio (especially Jones) to get an understanding of what Our Gal was up against in those days! Song o' the Week: from the session of 8-24-61, "Who Can I Count On?" Or should it have been "Upon Whom Can I Count?" This song takes me back to my toddler years in the mid-60s. It's the first Patsy song I ever recall hearing in my life. Down on our farm in Texas, in the kitchen with my grandma, radio on. This is a fun song, always takes me back! Dontcha love all the "N" sounds Patsy gets to sing?!

I love Patsy Cline. I just can't get enough of her music and voice. I play her songs over and over again. My computer comes complete with CD ROM and I play her CD's as I surf. I was in Nashville in May of this year on vacation and saw "A Tribute To Patsy". It was very good. Not the real thing but still good. I watch "Sweet Dreams" with Jessica Lange all the time. As I said, I just can't get enough of her music.

I got to see the "Always Patsy Cline" show in Galveston Sat. night. I thought it was just terrific!!! The singer (Rusti Rae) did a great job on Patsy's music. She's the closest thing to Patsy that I've heard yet. I was very pleased with the show. Jennifer.

Hi!! I was wondering if anything had come of the costume that was 'found' a few weeks ago... the one that was reportedly made by Patsy's mother??? I'm glad that Lisa mentioned the Margaret Jones book; I like that one. It sees Patsy from a woman's point of view and Ms Jones comes across as a big fan of Patsy. She doesn't gloss over *anything*, but after reading it I felt nothing but admiration for Patsy and all her family. I think it's a pretty good book and I like the style it's written in. I'd like to know the family's views on that one!! I'm pleased that a couple of new stories have appeared on the 'fan is born' page... keep 'em coming!!! Talk to you all soon, Cath

Got to see Always Patsy Cline Saturday night, I thought they did a good job. The singer didn't sound like Patsy, but then who could. She tried hard. My wife picked up Country Weekly Mag. and showed me about the new cd. I couldn't help it, I got teary eyed just thinking about more music from the best singer of all time. I have played it over and over and haven't gotten tired of it and never will. I missed the TNN special. I heard it was good. If it is coming on again soon, please let me know. I could watch tributes to Patsy all the time.

Checked the news page lately? If so, you'll see Per has added the cover text from the Decca album "That's How A Heartache Begins". Like everyone else, I'm always on the lookout for this rare album. But, I'm fortunate in the fact that my next door neighbor has a copy of it in her extensive record collection. I have borrowed it on numerous occasions, most recently to send Per the cover text. As I stopped to read Per's new page with the text on it, I'm amazed how accurate this passage (written 32 years ago) is today. Did they see, even then, that other singers would come along and experience tremendous success before vanishing into oblivion? I'm know that this has happened many times over the years. However, no record label pundit could've predicted that a girl from the hills of Virginia could create a musical legacy that would never fade and a legend that only grows. That she would continue to outshine other artists for decades to come. There's only one performer who could go beyond such trends to remain such a creative force and influence on music 34 years after she left us. The one and only Patsy Cline.

Great site! I just came back from seeing Loretta (Last night) at Havelock Ontario. She is such a sweetheart and when I yelled "I love you" she said "I love you too" and she was staying at my hotel! But anyways, one woman who was on before Loretta sang a whole bunch of her songs (Though it wasn't that great) and then Loretta came on and blew me away with "Walkin'", "I Fall to pieces", and "She's got You". She also said something about Patsy but I couldn't hear because the jerk next to me was yelling insults at her. Well, I wore my Patsy t-shirt and screamed until I had no voice left to scream with, but Loretta was GREAT and I was really happy to hear so many tributes to the greatest singer of all time. I love ya, Patsy! -Mandy

Hey Gang, Here is some Patsy History - "Crazy" is 36 yrs old this week! Heard it on the radio and remembered. Lisa, about SOW, I was really surprised at her ending on "Dreamboat". I figured she would "tag it", ya know go up. I was talking with someone and they said that Kay Starr did this song like Patsy does on C B. It does not seem like the end of the show. I have to brag about my home state attractions. I went to Prestonburg, KY to hear / see some young friends sing at the KY Opry. Well, Jessica Hays and Laureen West were smashing on the song "Does He Love You". The best I have seen these two girls do and they are just 8 and 10 yrs old! Makes be proud to call them friends, Jessica is family to me. I was astounded at the great show Opry puts on. It was such a lift to see so many talented performers perform. They did some country, oldies, comedy, southeren gospel and even a skit from the "Blue Brothers" movie. The show was 2 1/2 hrs long and only $10.00. So if your ever in the area on a Friday, catch a show. By the way, Loretta Lynn's Butcher Hollor home is up the road. Always, Jimmy 8-17-97

Well gang, I finally got Cimmaron Ballroom at the Best Buy store on West 38th Street in Indianapolis for $13.99. The jury is still out, though, on my opinion of the CD. Patsy was fine, but I am not that impressed with the band. Perhaps I will mellow out with further listenings, but I thought there were too many horns in the setup and they were not used properly. But, yes, I share the prevailing opinon on "Shake, Rattle and Roll". The Cline kicks butt with it! Maybe I'll like it better when I play it in the house rather than in the car!

Hey Folks, Glad to see all the new faces. I have a couple of things that I wanted to talk about. Well really just one thing with lots of questions. I bought the 3-CD Patsy Cline Collection put out by Laserlight. Does anyone know what these jokers were up to. I mean Patsy is completely covered up by this really annoying fiddle. It's like this on several songs and I just don't get it. The only cool part is that whoever produced this set recorded the entire original song in the Left Channel, and the lone fiddler in the Right Channel. This means that if I only listen to the left channel I don't have to hear that fiddle. Another thing too, who is that singer doing backup for Patsy on "Lonely Street". They ruined this song for me. I love "Lonely Street" because once again Patsy tears it up. But WHY, WHY, WHY, did they add this other woman. The other thing I noticed about this Laserlight edition is that on the first CD they use the alternate studio take of "I Don't Wanna" (the version without the Kerr singers) but they changed the name to "That's How Much I love You", and they give songwriting credit to someone who didn't right the song. Then on the second CD they use the released version (with the Kerr singers) and title it correctly with the correct credit given. Who are they kidding. And no Patsy fans, I'm not done there. Most of us have read the stories about Bill McCall, the man who gave Patsy her first recording contract. Well I'm sure you will remember also that he was a weasle and occassionally took song writing credit in order to be paid double fees. Well would ya'll believe that the people at Laserlight have given him credit for not only the songs he supposedly wrote, but this man got credit for writing "Just A Closer Walk With Thee" and "Lifes Railway To Heaven". I'm sure the African American slaves who sang these songs and the people who have been singing them since before Mr. McCall was even in this old world, would have loved to know how he wrote them. I guess it's that trickey pseudonym again. I mean maybe W.S. Stevenson wasn't McCall at all, maybe it was old William Shakespeare, although I doubt his last name was Stevenson. Anyway, those are just a few of the travesties included in this collection. I must say to have had help from the Country Music Foundation these Laserlight people dropped the ball. The only thing I thought was cool was they gave Patsy co-credit for the song "Don't Ever Leave Me". This is one of two that are rumored to have been written by Patsy and a couple of women from California. Although you'll have to pay attention to the credit given because it's just listed as "Hensley", not even a Virginia P. in front of it. Oh well, can't have it all. Any comments e-mail me. Anyway that's all the space I'll take up for now. Hi to all the regulars, and welcome new comers. Per, thanks again sweet pea. I'll be loving you, Always. Mark

Everyone, my 2-yr-old daughter watched "Sweet Dreams" for the first time. She wanted to know what happened to Patsy after they showed the plane crash scene. Well, I told her that Patsy died in the plane crash. I thought my daughter was going to start crying. I saw the tears welling up in her eyes. Everytime we get into the car she has to listen to "Crazy". That's her favorite song. I naturally, of course, have the "Sweet Dreams" soundtrack in the tape player at all times. Just thought I'd share that little piece of info. Always, Kath

Hi Ya'll! Just wanted to say that I am looking forward to performing at the annual Patsy Cline festival in Winchester, VA this labor day weekend. People say I sound just like Patsy, which is a super compliment to me because I think she is the greatest female singer to have graced this earth. She is an inspiration to me both personally and professionally... I wouldn't be singing today if it weren't for Patsy and her music. So I look forward to visiting her hometown and paying homage and tribute to a fabulous lady who is a legend! If you'd like to come down and join the fun, contact the Winchester Chamber of Commerce (540-662-4118) or Savoca Productions (216) 582-3996. I love you, Patsy! Logan Wells (Singer/entertainer)

Jones' PC bio to me, and as I settle into it, I'm happy to welcome in my e-mail box anyone who wishes to discuss the Patsy books/film with me. Always intriguing trying to sort out fact from fiction! I still yearn for the day when a movie is made of PC's entire life, *without* the fright wig Lange wore, of course! Sue B, when you get the video, let us know what ya think! And Brian N, good to see ya back, buddy! Now on to Song 'o the Week: just gotta override the Kool-Kat Songs Database just once more in honor of The New CD, so let's look at "When My Dreamboat Comes Home". I love this swingin' tune, but it always makes me sad when I hear it, because it's the last one on the CD. The awful feeling that it'll be the last one ever. Whaddaya think, eh?

Sue, your comment proves one thing. Just about everybody is looking for an easy buck. Maybe this suit is payback, because (if I'm not mistaken), the Patsy Cline estate will not authorize/issue a license for the play Nassour has written that is based on his book.
Bill Cox <>
Knoxville, TN U.S.A. - Friday, August 15, 1997 at 03:15:00 (MET DST)
I guess I should have made myself clear. Ellis Nassour is suing "Always Patsy Cline" for 4% of the take because he thinks just because he wrote a book on the Cline, everything else which has been written afterwards is based on his cheesy book. I think if anybody should get a cut besides the playwright, it should be the Patsy Cline estate! Between being amused by this jerk and putting up with having the jerk who has the sicko Jim Reeves site on Geocites threated me and my server because I told them to visit Satan and leave me alone, I am having a WONDERFUL week! I am going to South Bend tomorrow to stash some stuff at Mom's so I may take some time to look for Cimmaron Ballroom! I hope the play doesn't close because of that greedy egotistical jerk!

I just returned to Chicago after visiting Winchester and Patsy Cline's gravesite, and was intrigued with a headstone near her's, a man named Al Hogan, died in 1986. On the stone was a guitar... just wondering if he perhaps played with Cline? Or is it just coincidental?

This is a great homepage for a great singer. Does anyone know which house Patsy sold to Jim Reeves around 1962/63? Jim let 2 members of his band THE BLUE BOYS live in it. Besides a Jim Reeves fan I love Patsy's records and have most of them on LP or CD album. Keep up the good work! Arie den Dulk, secretary of the JIM REEVES FAN CLUB.

I'm a native of Winchester, VA. Love Patsy Cline and hate the way the town of Winchester treated such a great inspiration of Country music. I was selected as an "extra" for the movie of her life, "Sweet Dreams" which took place at the "Rainbow Road" club in West Virginia. I need some lyrics to some of her songs, as I myself can never top her beautiful voice but get very close. Please advise me as to where I can find lyrics. I thank you and wish you continued success on such a great page for Patsy Cline. I just wish she were still with us instead of being just a legend!!

Hey Julie! My neighbors I took a road trip to Nashville so they could see the show and it was cancelled for the first time ever (2 hrs before the show) Anyway, Uncle Stu (Basore) took us over to Charlie's new house. Charlie took me there last May. Nice home - The B.S. Crew did a great job. I'm sorry I missed "Prime Time Country" but Charlie showed us the Award. (Beautiful) Anyway, saw your post last Tuesday and I thought I'd say hi. Charlie is a great guy who's done a lot for Aunt Marsha & Uncle Stu. (and vice-versa) He always gives my two little girls plenty of attention when they're around. See ya later, Brett

Here we are all in Hanover, Ontario enjoying the site and looking at the fantastic pictures and fan mail from Y'all. This brings back fond memories from the 60's. Anne and Norm recall the time when meeting Patsy and Charlie for the first time in Hamilton, Ontario. Patsy brought Charlie to meet the guys and following the show they all went for chinese food where they shared many laughs. Later, that night back in their hotel room, Patsy modelled her new leopard coat and matching hat and thought she was the coolest cat in town. From that night on, they became very loyal friends and penpals. The letters flew back and forth from all over the United States. The last letter came with a beautiful 8x10 photo of Patsy in front of the Mint at Las Vegas where she had been appearing. In the video "Remembering Patsy" Michelle Wright reads the letters that Patsy wrote to me. You will recognize them as they begin with -"Dear Anne and Gang". That's all for this time! See you in Winchester to all that can make it. / Anne & Norm Armstrong, Sheree Shannon, Marnie & Ivan Porcellato, Andy & Cathy Armstrong

Hey Folks, I saw the entrys of people looking for the A&E Biography show. I think you would all be happier with the video produced by ABC and Hallway Productions (a company Charlie is a partner in), it's called "Remembering Patsy". It is the show that A&E used for the Biography series. A&E used this in an edited version so it would fit the hour long program complete with commercials. This means that some parts were left out. Not too much was edited, but enough that is noticable. You can order the tape from many video and music stores, or some places have it in stock. There you go that's about all the info I have. You all should really make an effort to get the real video if possible, it's much better than A&E's version of it. See ya'll soon. I'll be loving you Always, Mark. One more thing, if you listen close to this video, at the end they use about 30 secs of "Shake, Rattle, and Roll". It is during the part when they are talking about the Vegas shows. That's something I'm not sure alot of people realize. Bye Now.

Eeeeyhaw! Guess what I got?!?!? Yep. The "Cimmaron" disc. Finally. It seemed like an eternity from the time I heard of the release and purchased the disc. Instead of "Walkin'" the streets looking for it, I telephoned a record store at a local mall and they had 1 copy in stock! (Stone Road Mall HMV, Marnie. Hope you got a copy). Of course I got them to hold it for me. I couldn't wait to get my copy of this gem. Even with being a "techie" and a bit of an audiophile, I still love it. I think it's playing for the 6th or 7th time. The Cline is perfection, unfortunately the technology of the day wasn't what it is now, but no matter. To hear Patsy in a "real" live setting, as opposed to her other 2 "live" CD"s is an unexpected gift. I would've only been 1 1/2 years old at the time of this performance, so I feel truly blessed. If a CD can be worn out, this one might be the one. ***** rating! Glitchrs, dropouts, feedback, distortion and all. A question for Per: When is the Patsy Cline chat line active? I've checked it many times, but there never seems to be anyone there.

Hi Per, Lisa, Jimmy, Amber & everyone. Lisa, I have to agree with you. I think the number one tearjerker Patsy song is "Leavin on Your Mind". Well, in about twelve days, my wife and daughter and I are heading to Nashville, and while there we will see the show, "Just a Closer Walk With Patsy Cline". If anyone is still having trouble finding the Cimarron CD or tape in their hometown, you can order it on the net from several places. E-mail me if you want the info, as I don't particularly want to advertise any one place, especially here on Per's site. Once again, thanks to Per for your great site and for your inspiration. I've made a few changes to my own Patsy site (, so stop by and have a look if you haven't been around lately.

Hello Fellow Fans of Patsy! Thanks, Jimmy, for nudging me to check out the site and make an entry. I am ALWAYS amazed just how many Patsy friends there are worldwide keeping her music alive! Wouldn't she be thrilled??? Yeah, the world's big place but this site just made it smaller somehow! (Hi Deb and Julie!) I know many of you now and hey, I discovered an entry from another Guelphite. Hi to Douglas Giesel! Doug, would you believe there are many Patsy fans in the Royal City?? Yes, and through this site, you learn more about them. The city is famous not just because of its royal connections, but also because through Patsy, several country celebs visited a quaint little home filled with love and fun! Including Dottie West and Loretta Lynn! You'd be delighted to hear that this cat grew up with Patsy's music and Patsy's kids (whom she loved more than is explainable). Ain't it all so interesting?! It was a treat seeing Charlie and Julie on Gary's show. Weren't the awards something to talk about? Hey, we're all gearing up for the FC get together. See you soon!

It sure is great to see so much intrest, appreciation, respect, and dedication to a woman that not only deserves it, but worked her whole life to achieve it. It's WELL DESERVED. My husband & I are in a band. I sing a couple of Patsy Cline songs like "Walking After Midnight" & "I Fall To Pieces". If I had my way, that's all I would sing!

My favorite Tearjerkers. There are several in the Patsy Cline catalog: "When You Need A Laugh", "Leavin' On Your Mind", "Faded Love", and, of course, "Sweet Dreams". Tears come for many reasons. It's true that your own emotions have to be in the groove of the song for it to hit you on that level. But, for me, the emotions of the songs are redirected. Sometimes, I think of a loved one who is no longer here. Either because they're gone, or because it was one of their favorite songs. At other times, I think of the tremendous talent Patsy possessed, what an enormous loss her passing was, and what she might have been able accomplish had she lived. "Live At The Cimarron Ballroom" is a tearjerker all by itself. Oh, by the way, I've sent Per a surprise for the tribute page that he'll be posting in the near future. I'll let Per tell you what it is, and I hope you'll enjoy it. "Now, get out in that kitchen and rattle those pots and pans. . ."

Howdy hosses! Long time, no sign in! How's everyone? Lisa... you out there? Youuuuuuu neeeed to e-mail me sometime! My favorite tearjerker has to be "Love letters in the sand" I love the opening... and the way Patsy sings about her lover laughing "while she cries" is all but too sad! How about it? I loved Prime Time Country the other night. I just wished they would have showed more of the scrapbook pages! I enjoyed seeing Julie, she looks like a super nice person. Will she be in Winchester over Labor Day? I have a trivia question for ya'll about Patsy that has been stumping me. I got it from one of the "Always Patsy Cline" newsletters. Here goes: *What kind of car were Patsy and her brother traveling in when they were involved in the near-fatal car wreck?* Well, e-mail me if you know the answer! Or put it up here.

Hey Folks, thanks so much to Lisa, gal you and me got to stick together. I hope everyone is doing well. I received some email from Mark Ogletree, he asked for me to make him a tape of the tribute from PTC. So I decided, heck, if anyone else would like a tape that's no problem. If you want email me your full name and address, then through snail mail send me a video cassette, and $3.00. No I'm not trying to make a profit, it will cost me $3.00 to send the tape back via 3 day mail. Don't worry, I'm not a crook and would never steal your money. I have a good paying job. Anyway, there you go. Let me know if any of you want the tape. I'll be glad to share. I hope everyone has a great weekend, and I'll talk to yall later. I'll be loving you, Always. Mark

Hi! Lisa, if I have to name only one tearjerker it'll have to be "He Called Me Baby". That little number has been listened and mourned to by various friends of mine when they've turned up at the door with a bottle of wine and a broken heart. Then again, it's a tearjerker even when you're not in that situation!!! "Leaving On Your Mind" is another that does the trick, I have to agree completely with you!!! Jimmy, it's really nice that Julie has such regard for Patsy's fans that she will put herself out for them in that way. I hope this CD sells well and puts Patsy's name even more in the spotlight... she deserves it. Bye for now, Cath

Hey Gang. Sorry I haven't written in a while. I did manage to get the new CD on the 29th, and I've been enjoying it ever since. Aside from her incredible voice, this CD demonstrates what was so different about Patsy back in those days. Women singers did not perform like that. Most of them would come out, do their number, and leave. Patsy talked to the crowd, and she worked them! She was so ahead of her time. I didn't get a chance to see the tribute and if someone could make me a copy if they taped it that would be great. Maybe it will air again sometime in the near future. Well, that's all for now...Ciao!

Yes Kristy, that was me on the front row. I let them know that some fan club members were there. They had an extra seat and said I may sit there. Charlie was a little surprised to see me, I think. I guess this is a perk to being a fan club member. All I saw of me on tv was my leg and the back of my head. Lisa, I think "Leavin' on Your Mind" is my tear jerker. This is esp. true when I see the video. Patsy gets a little teary-eyed at the end. Always, Jimmy. 8-8-97

Howdy to all you cats! Worshipful kowtows to Mark, who said it *all* about The Imposter. The main thing that strikes me when I watch Patsy on video is her *immense* poise as she sings; complete control, no extraneous gesturing. So if one can't act or sing like PC, and one doesn't look like her, how can one portray her? Three strikes, you're OUT! Meanwhile, overriding the Trusty Song 'o the Week Database yet again, I'd like to know what your favorite tearjerker song is. What song makes you wanna cry just from hearing the opening chords, before The Singer even begins to sing, because you *know* how good she's gonna be? Name just one. My fav tearjerker is "Leavin' on Your Mind." What is yours?

Hey folks. Still trying to rest up from Nashville. Got in town Sunday and went to the Texa Troubadour and caught the second half of "Closer Walk.." Terri has really improved since April. I noticed that some people were having trouble getting "Cimarroon Ballroom". Once again I must promote the Ernest Tubb Record Shop. The stores had several. Call 'em at 1-800-229-4288. That is what E T set them up for. About PTC, that was not my favorite tribute either. I think we must consider that these shows have researchers that read up on the topic and they probably pull the questions. That is my guess. Yes I must applaude Julie and Charlie. They did great. Ya'll think Julie did great on camera. Well, I went backstage, w/out a pass. Manage to say hello to Charlie and Michelle. Then security asked me to leave. So I was heading out and then Julie hollered at me. I told her they had asked me to leave and she said she wanted to say hello. Security allowed me stay and chat briefly. She was so kind and handled a sticky situtation w./ such class! THANKS. Julie, do think Crook and Chase may do something? A million thanks for sharing the scrapbook on TV!!!! Great to see everyone is wearing out "C B". Catch ya'll later. Always, Jimmy 8-7-97

Modulation is what Patsy didn't after the bridge in "When My Dreamboat Comes Home". Took me a while to figure out why it just sounded wrong - the band's playing in a different key from the one in which she is singing! The band goes up, and she stays right in her groove. Gotta love The Cline.

I taped the tribute and only watched it a little while ago. I am very happy to see that Patsy was honored with this tribute, so I'll refrain from making negative comments about the show. Let it suffice to say that I agree with most of the negative statements already expressed. On a positive note, I enjoyed seeing Charlie Dick and dear Julie. It was also a thrill to see footage of Patsy singing "Crazy". Regarding "Modulating", on page 333 of Ellis Nassour's "Honky Tonk Angel", Charlie explains how Patsy came to record "Faded Love" without modulating. Charlie said, "Jackie DeShannon came on the radio singing the old Bob Willis song "Faded Love"... Patsy said, "Everybody's modulating down these days. I wonder why Jackie did it? Charlie told her, "Probably the song's not in her key. If it's too high for her, it would be hard to do without bringing it down" "Oh, no it wouldn't" Patsy replied. And the rest as they say, is history! I am already wearing out the Cimarron CD. Since I now have most of Patsy's recordings on CD, I've given my duplicate cassettes to friends so they too can enjoy the songs of the very best woman singer of all time! I can't tell you how good it is to have found this site where I can communicate with others who love Patsy and her music as much as I do.
Sue Benedetto <>
NY - Thursday, August 07, 1997 at 06:33:06 (MET DST)
Sue, in simple english, modulating in a song means changing the key you're singing in during the performance. Most people find "Faded Love" hard to sing without changing keys in certain parts. Patsy was determined to prove she could sing it all the way through in one key, and she did. Read the passage in "Honky Tonk Angel" that talks about the night Charlie and Patsy heard Jackie DeShannon singing "Faded Love" on the radio. This will give you a good insight on one of Patsy's Greatest Hits.

Just one question... what does it mean to MODULATE? I have seen references to that in several publications, but no explaination was ever made to us people who never took vocal music theory.
Sue Wilden <>
Columbus, In USA - Thursday, August 07, 1997 at 05:15:23 (MET DST)
Mark, I agree with you on many points. I watched, and taped, last night's Prime Time Country. It wasn't all bad, but Teri Lyn Palazola's impersonation of "The Cline" leaves something to be desired. It seemed like she was trying too hard to sound like Patsy. Mandy Barnett she's not. As far as "Faded Love", Lee Ann Womack sang the song, and the band performed it, as it was written. Owen Bradley slowed the tempo for Patsy's recording, so she could deliver such an emotion filled performance without modulating. The only part that really bothered me was Gary Chapman's question to Julie about how Hilda felt about losing a daughter since Julie tragically knows that feeling all too well herself. Gary Chapman is a good host, so I wouldn't say that he isn't interested in the subject or lacks research. But, it's obvious that on some points of the interviewing process he's in over his head. Humor is his key to success, and this isn't a humorous subject. I just can't get enough of the "Cimarron Ballroom" CD. It is just amazing that the tape survived all these years, and has finally made it to the public. This is a wonderful piece of music history that we'll be able to enjoy for years to come. Thanks to Charlie, Julie and Randy, Bruce Hinton and MCA Records, the staff at the Cimarron Ballroom who turned on the recorder, Ken Burgess, William Frazee and everyone who had a part in bringing it to the fans. We appreciate it. Who else can now call "Shake, Rattle & Roll" one of their favorite Patsy Cline songs?
Bill Cox <>
Knoxville, TN U.S.A. - Thursday, August 07, 1997 at 03:06:16 (MET DST)
Hey Folks, Ok you can all get angry with me now. Even Per, for what I am about to say. So far Lisa and Adam have made comments on the show but didn't want to leave a negative vibe in the book. I can appreciate this, but ask yourselves if Patsy would have spoken her mind. My answer, Damn Straight! I watched in horror as this so called Patsy Cline impersonator butchered "Walkin' After Midnight". I have seen Always PC three times in different cities with different performers, this gal is by far the worst. Lisa was correct in her comments that this gal sings in Broadway style. While Patsy occassionally liked to end a song with a faster tempo and a higher key, she did not sing like that. The only explanation that I can fathom is that she was coached this way. The directors must have changed the style for a New York Broadway audience. Being a child of the theatre, I can tell you there is a difference in performing on Broadway and performing anywhere else. This is all good if it's the case but lest we forget that Patsy herself set New York on its ear in November, 1962. Carnegie Hall was probably the crowning jewel in her tiara. Patsy herself lamented later that she even impressed an Eastern European princess. So my point is why have someone do a really bad impersonation of Patsy when 99% of the audience, even New York, are such die hards that it will be noticed. If not for the calibre and class of PC fans I think this gal would be boo'd off the stage by any other audience. Now as far as the rest of the show, I have one word for Gary Chapman... RESEARCH. It was vulgar that the host of the show was so oblivious to details other than what has been printed in all to infrequent quarter page magazine articles. I can't remember Julie ever doing a live interview. If I had been Gary Chapman I would have been embarrased by the lack of calibre in the questions that he asked the daughter of arguably the single most important woman in the history of 20th century music. Julie carried herself with class and dignity, the same class that set her mother apart. Julie and Charlie both handled the seeming lack of interest from the host as best as they could which made the host look like an ignorant fool. I can't believe that the host can show his face again around Nashville, I truely feel like Patsy would have been dissapointed in his lack of interest or knowledge of her music. I guess he's too busy trying to jumpstart his floundering career. Now I don't mean to upset anyone. I'm not trying to hurt anyones feelings with my thoughts. But as I've told you before, Patsy would not have held back and I've never been that type either. So there you have my completely personal, unsolicited opinion. Per, if you choose not to retain this entry in the book, no hard feelings, it's your site and I will expect you to run it as you see fit. There will be no bad blood on my part. I love you all and I thank you for the opportunity to vent. See you all soon, and any comments can be emailed to me. Until next time, I'll be loving you Always. Mark

Thank you, Julie, for stopping by here to say hello to everyone. I saw the Prime Time Country show last night, and thought it was a very nice tribute to Patsy, though I didn't particularly like the two women singers. I thought Ray Stevens did a good job on "Crazy". The Cimarron CD is just fantastic, and THANK YOU!, to you, your dad, MCA, and everyone involved in the project. We can only hope and wish that other such treasures are out there somewhere waiting to be discovered! Sweet Dreams, everyone...

I agree 100% with Lisa. IMHO it's better to say nothing at all about that episode of _Prime Time Country_ since I can't say anything nice. Let's just say it was not a tribute I would have liked to have seen, especially with _Faded Love_ having a shuffle beat. Julie, it was great to see you again - the only other time I've seen you is in the Real Patsy Cline video, and that's some years old now. Good to see your father, too. For those of you have the Cimarron recording, if you can, play it on a stereo which can simulate stereo. I played it in Mono Movie mode on my Sony deck and I heard the audience, Patsy's off-mike comments, and all kinds of stuff not in the transcript. Try it!

Glad that I had the chance to see Charlie Dick and Julie. They both seem to be down to earth, sweet people. I hope that someday I get the chance to meet them.

I watched the TNN special on Patsy tonight and enjoyed it so much. I have always been a PC fan and have alot of her music. My grandmother, who is a HUGE PC fan and always has been, says that when I was a baby that she would put on a PC record ("Crazy" for one) and I would just cry and cry! Seems Paty's voice held so much emotion that it made me sad just to hear her!! I do remember some of that and I have to say that any singer who can pack that kind of emotion into her songs, that a baby who could not even understand the words would feel it was MIGHTY special!! My favorite songs today are of her live performances that have been released, so I was estatic to find out about the new live CD. I'll definately have that one in my possession tomorrow if I can find it. After the show tonight, I had to come home (was watching from my grandmas house... she is the one who introduced me to PC music as a child) and put on "Patsy Cline Live Volume 2". I love her version of Stupid Cupid on there! Anyway, at the same time I was putting on the tape, I turned on the net and decided to look for Patsy sites. I found this one and I don't think I will ever leave! It's great... keep up the good work! Hello to Charlie and Julie when you stop by. Very good to see you on the show tonight! Patsy deserves all the recognition we can give her! Still enjoying the music (and yes, I still cry sometimes!) Chantel

What a joy to see Julie & Charlie on TNN tonight! Y'all looked fantastic, and must be so proud of the new awards. However, I have "mixed" feelings about the impersonator! I *know* that she's doing it out of love for The Singer, but she must not have watched the videos of PC very closely! She sings Broadway style, not PC style. My expectations for a PC impersonator are impossible to meet, though. Couldn't they at least have cast a gal with *brown* eyes!? I don't wanna mess up the guestbook with negativity, because I'm *thrilled* that PC is receiving recognition in NY. So anyone who wants to know my *complete* opinion on this touchy subject, feel free to e-mail me! Thanks for the forum, Per!

Hello to Per & all... Haven't had a chance to stop by recently. Am right now heading out to TNN to the "Prime Time Country" program. Dad is on the show tonight, and I'm not sure if they want to talk to me or not. Will see when I get there. If you get this news early enough, check it out. (Tuesday, August 5, 1997) I'll stop in later and see what's happenin' around here. C/ya!

Hi everybody: I've been wandering the streets of Guelph (a city of about 100,000; 2 hrs. west of Toronto) checking all the record stores for "Cimarron", with no success, YET! This is a university town, so we're deluged with all that alternative and dance stuff. But we've got a determined fan of the Cline here; where there's a will, there's a way! I've a Dutch release of "Sweat Dreams" (Grand Canyon 65006,cassette); I'm not sure if it's really a soundtrack of the movie. It has photos of Jessica Lange and of Patsy on the cover, and it is a double length tape. Does anyone know if the original recording (mono, I guess) of "Walking After Midnight" is available? I don't believe I've ever heard it, only the Decca re-recording. My cravings for the Cline's music have increased substantially since I saw the news of the "Live at the Cimarron Ballroom" in "Country Weekly". It was weird, just before I got my copy of her CD of the radio transcriptions, I'd picked up some old C&W 78's at a yard sale, and one of them was Webb Pierce's "Yes, I Know Why". Unfortunately, it looks like someone took a bite out of it. Only a few seconds are "missing" from the intro, though. It's inspiring to see so many keeping Patsy's memory alive! Keep up the good work!

Comment: All of Patsy's 102 studio recordings, including the original mono version of "Walkin' after midnight", are available on CD. I can recommend the MCA 4 CD box collection (MCAD4-10421) that was released in 1991. It only lacks 12 of the original recordings, and those can be found on other CDs. /Per
Just browsing the web and saw your site. My Dad, Hawkshaw, died in the plane crash with Patsy. Wish someone had enough interest in him to create such a grand site for him.

Hey hosses! I got my Cimarron CD Aug 2 from Cliff at In-Your-Ear Music!!!! I live in Tuscaloosa, the home of the University of Alabama Crimson Tide, we have about a dozen big industries in this town, a Wal Mart, Sam's, BF Goodrich, JVC, Mercedes Benz (just opened), and lots of others! Anyway, my point is it really upsets me that I couldn't find this CD anywhere in this town! I had to send off through the mail to get it, and I thank Cliff from the bottom of my heart that he had it and I could get it from him! I was just so shocked that I couldn't walk into a music store or even Wal Mart and get this CD, it was real upsetting! I was so sure of this town, that I could walk into the first store of my choice and find this CD, but I never knew how wrong I could be! But enough of that, I have the CD that's all that matters, and let me tell you it set my woods on fire! When I first got it I opened up the front sleeve and read it word for word, and then I put the CD in and thought to myself not to expect her to sound like herself because of the wreck, but then I hit play and the sounds coming out of the speakers totally floored me, she sounds absolutely wonderful! I said my gosh she doesn't sound no different! Then I thought how stupid I was for thinking that in the first place! Of course, she is going to sound just as great as she always does, I couldn't believe I was selling the Cline short, someone should've kicked me in the butt! But anyway, she is great and this CD has made me miss her even more, and when she talked about the wreck and everything she broke, and her face, and how people responded to her appearance, I got all teary-eyed! She never knew at the time she made this recording, that she would only live 2 more years! But none of us know when we will meet our fate either, just as I sit here and write this I could meet mine tomorrow for all I know! Bless her heart, I just love her to death, and I think its even more of a tragedy that we can't see her today, but you know and I think all of us hearing this record have done the same thing, I closed my eyes when I first heard the CD and I could see her sitting there on that stool, crutches and all on that sea-shelled shaped stage, cutting up with the crowd and talking, and getting down on some good ole country music! Its like I can picture the whole thing and see it very clearly, what she is wearing, the people there in the audience and everything, and it makes me shiver and then I open my eyes and sadly realize that I'm back to reality that she is gone and all we have left is this live recording of her performance. And what a performance it is, I sit here now and listen to this CD, "Shake, Rattle and Roll" is playing, and it is truly a treasure, I also like "Stupid Cupid", it is really swinging! I like everything, there is nothing about this CD I don't like, the glitches are there but so what, it's Patsy Live!!!!! So who cares about the darn glitches! It's still great to be able to sit back and close my eyes and for once in my life to actually be able to attend one of her concerts. She still lives on as far as I am concerned, in my thoughts and memories and in the daydreams that I have when I hear her music, that we have to cherish until we meet her in heaven!!!!!

Patsy's always held a special place in my heart. As a child, I was raised on C&W music, mostly Jim Reeves and Johnny Cash. We had an old Decca album, I think it was called "Country & Western Favorites" that had "Walkin' after Midnight" on it. I played that song over and over again! Even throughout my teen years of being a "heavy metal" rock and roller or a "New Waver", I kept my love for Patsy secret. No other music had the capacity to touch my heart like hers. Her voice was truly that of an angel. I've started my search for the availability of her new live CD, but I don't know how easy it is to get it in Canada.

I've been mesmerized by Patsy's voice since I was a kid; I'm now 32. She will always be to me the finest vocal performer. Her phrasing is as smooth as honey. I have a friend who saw Patsy sing live in a cabaret in 1962, and Patsy placed her cowboy hat on my friend's husband's head. She tells this story endlessly. I must own fifteen albums and tapes, many original, but most prize my boxed CD collection. Of course it is played endessly. "Crazy", "I Fall To Pieces" and "Sweet Dreams" are perfect songs in every way. I can never tire of hearing them, and find something new to appreciate in them with each replay. I must now be in the thousands!

Hey Folks, I just can't stand it. I have had Patsy on repeat at work for two days straight. I can't get enough. As with everyone else the shining gem on this album is certainly, "Shake, Rattle, and Roll". I couldn't help but want to get up and dance, but seeing as how I was at work and had already been called down for singing the song I had to restrain myself from dancing. Oh man it is just the coolest, most hep record I've ever heard. When Patsy leads into "Come On In" I can't help but feel like she means me. The sound is so good that it's like sitting in the club. Laws a mercy I hate for her to stop. She is truely the first real DIVA. I can't say enough. I love you guys and hope you all take Patsy with you everywhere you go this weekend. FYI: TNN show This Week In Country Music (I think that's the title) will feature the CD on Saturday August 2. This is not the Crook and Chase show, but the one hosted by Lisa Stewart and some other guy. Lisa is a huge Patsy fan and when she was on the old Crook and Chase show as part of the house band she did Patsy's songs all the time. Anyway Saturday August 2. Check your local listing for show times. HA. Til next time. I'll be loving you, Always, Mark. Hey Per, we haven't heard from you yet. Do you have the CD, if so what do you think. Let us know and thanks again for all the super work you do here. We love ya.

Howdy y'all! Cath, hold your horses, Petunia, I sent the CD to you via 3-day Express! I'm glad your radio stations are playing The Singer's new CD, because I have yet to hear it! Has anyone else heard it yet? If so, which song(s)? You know, I wonder if Patsy'd be so crazy about this CD, being the perfectionist to end all perfectionists! I'm reluctant to say that such a release will never happen again, but it may not, so I'm very thankful to be here for this! I'm afraid I have no choice but to *interrupt* the Song o' the Week Handy-Dandy Database to insinuate the obvious Song 'o the Week: "Shake, Rattle & Roll". Oh, Daddy-O, this one knocks me out! Before singing it, she almost sounds like she's not thrilled about the request, ha! Then she sings the tar out of it! It sure is great to hear her sing with a full band that can (almost) match the fullness of her voice. What a dame! Do y'all do what I do? Listen to The CD with the volume turned up to 11?:-)

Hi everyone! The country radio programmes are playing exerpts from the Cimarron CD and I'm going crazy 'cos it's not released over here yet!! She sounds amazing... Better in concert than most other people do after hours in a recording studio. The bloke that 'discovered' this gem deserves a lot of thanks from all of us. And thanks to Charlie for any part he played in this wonderful release. It's bittersweet as we are all now finding out what we have missed out on. Or at least I will find out once I get a copy (thanks, Lisa!!!!!!!!!) If anyone out there still has a story about how they discovered Patsy, please e-mail it to Per. All stories are wanted!!!! Cath

Due to other obligations I was unable to get the Cimarron CD on Tuesday or Wednesday. I finally made it to Borders on Thursday and was devastated when I didn't see it on display. Lucky for me, one of the clerks went to the stock room and discovered it hadn't even been put out on the shelf yet. Needless to say, I was ecstatic that I was able to get it. What a treasure! This CD is a must have for any Patsy Cline fan.

I checked Walmart and they didn't have it so I made some phone calls and only one place in the city had it. I was so thrilled! It's a great CD! Hope everyone has the chance to buy it because it's a must for all Patsy fans! Kathy

Hey folks, so great to see so many pleased fans over the "Cimarron". I new everybody would love it. "Shake Rattle and Roll" is my favorite like many others. How many of yours jaws dropped when you heard it. If ya have chance, drop MCA a note to tell them thanks. MCA 60 Music SQ. East, Nash. TN 37203. And thanks to Charlie and Mr Fraze (the man who took them to MCA). Something I would like to call everyone attention to is that today marks the 33 anniversary of Jim Reeves' death. TNN's "Today's Country" (news) will remember him. So I thought we could too along w/ all of his many fans. Aug 5 TNN "Prime Time Country" will spotlight Patsy. I will be there, hope you can too. Watch it if not. Always, Jimmy 7-31-97

Howdy! Nice site!!! I want to tell you about a CD made in Holland, which is a tribute to Patsy Cline. It's called "Crystal Clark sings Patsy Cline" and I think it's made with a lot of respect for Patsy's songs. I Know about this CD because I made the photographs and lay-out for it. For more information you can fax to Rarity Records: +31-23-5262340. Or write to P.O.Box 656 2003 RR Haarlem, Netherlands. This label is specialised in old (style) Rock 'n' Roll, Instrumentals and Country. Bye Bye from the Lowlands.

Ah lemme tell ya, this new CD is absolutely wonderful. The Cline never sounded so good! Some of the comments that she made really cracked me up. What a legend! She really sung well with Leon McAuliff's band, and for those of you that may not know, Leon once was the steel man for the legendary Bob Wills band (Texas Playboys) and the clarinetist on this recording was the clarinetist on Bob's 1960-1963 sessions for Liberty - just a little sideline for ya. I'm 21 and I love Patsy and all country music from the 20s to the 70s. I wish that some folks would realize that there are other singers besides Garth Brooks - that hoss is good, but can't hold up to Patsy, Merle, Buck Owens or even Loretta. Today's radio needs to be educated in true country music. Enough said. Love ya, Wade

I'm sure the directions to join will be easily found. Thanks a bunch.

I simply can't tell you all how thrilling and exciting it is for me to finally be able to go to a Patsy Cline concert. I'm 21 years old and in love with The Cline. She just tears up this record. I can't believe it. Somehow I think you all understand how great this is. You see I'm rambling on because I just can't put it into words. Patsy honey I love ya. You have just made this ol' country boy very, very happy. What I wouldn't give to be have known her. I've always heard the tales about what Patsy was like in concert and in her life. This recording validates it all. She is truely the first real DIVA. I'll stop taking up space now. But hosses, this is quite possibly the best day in my life, and certainly a huge milestone for music lovers of any genre. I Love You, Patsy, and to the rest of you I'll be loving you Always, Mark Willix

What a tremendous listening experience!!! I was waiting at Blockbuster Music when the doors opened this morning, and bought the only copy of "Cimarron Ballroom" they had in stock. Words can't begin to describe it. The sound quality is excellent considering the original source and its age. "Shake, Rattle and Roll" is out of this world. The version of "Stupid Cupid" is just as exceptional. And, to hear Patsy speak to the audience is absolutely the best. Just as good as the songs. I wish the whole night had been recorded. But, we do have these wonderful 41 minutes of history to enjoy over and over again. Thanks to everyone who had a part in bringing this to the fans. Now, come on everybody, share your thoughts on this fantastic album.

I was first inspired to start singing when I was 8 years old after watching "Sweet Dreams", the movie based on Patsy Cline's life. I guess I was drawn to her personality. She liked to have a good time and was confident in herself. She was unfortunately from a poor family, but yet she was still so determined and self driven. I fell in love with her voice and spontaneity. I mostly sang her songs at first. I started singing publicly at age 14. I am now 15 and am getting ready to make a CD in Nashville, and I know that Patsy has been one of the most inspirational people in my life. I just wish I could have met her.

I just had to write since I've been a fan of Patsy Cline's for a long, long time. One thing I bet the rest of you didn't ever think about, native English speakers like I also am, is that Patsy Cline is one of the few American singers that can be understood easily by non-native English speakers. My husband, a Brazilian, fell in love with Patsy Cline not only because her music and her voice were so beautiful but because it was so easy to understand her! Betcha never thought of that, huh? A quick note as I read through the notes in this guest book - and I did this quickly - it seems that you don't answer each other's questions. Just a note - not a criticism or anything. Long live Patsy Cline's memory and music - especially if your English isn't perfect and you need help in listening comprehension!

Howdy folks! It seems as if Patsy is the gracing figure for Country Weekly magazine. I just bought the issue for July 29, and on page 40 there is a nice article discussing Patsy's hits album and the fact that is has sold over 7 million copies. It also said that Shania Twain's album has beat it in sales of 10 million. I have an idea. Let's all go and buy the Greatest Hits CD, tell a friend. Make it a sell-out. I don't think that it will be long until the Cline has outsold Garth and Shania. They just don't know country until they have drunk from the well of the Cline. I hope that one day country radio will have the sense to play more of the older artists. Without them, where would today's folks be? Those veterans deserve more airplay than they get, and I mean more than just a sentence now and then. Can I get an amen?! :) I hope the live CD sells as wonderful as the hits CD. She deserves it because she never had alot of success during such a brief career. The Cline will always be number one in this ole boy's book! See you hosses and hosscats later! Bye!

Hey Folks, Tuesday is the day. I can't believe it. I told some people at work about the new album and the general response was "Isn't she dead?" Oh well, some people will never know what a historic event this is. I'm 21 years old and am going to my first Patsy Cline concert. I finally have a sense of what Louise must have felt like in that Texas auditorium. The excitement is so overwhelming. Per, I have an idea for the page I'll email you and hopefully you will be able to access the mail and consider my proposal. Until then everyone, have a great week and as soon as you all have listened to the CD let the rest of us know your take on it.

Whew! Glad to see ya back online, Patsy! Song 'o the Week is a day late 'n 2 dollars short (inflation, ya know). The Swingin' Hep Database has chosen "Does Your Heart Beat For Me?", Session 28, Feb. 6, 1963. This one makes me smile, because I think, wow, Patsy is nuts if she has to ask us that question!! Here's a thought: There would be no Yearwood-Rimes controversy over "How Do I Live" if they could just let Patsy sing the dadgum song, for cryin' out loud!

Hey everyone again! I am so excited, I got my issue of Country Weekly in the mail today, and what do you know they have on the front cover (along with George Strait's smiling face) Patsy Cline's long-lost tape found! Boy, I don't think I have ever turned the pages in a magazine so fast in my entire life, it's a wonder the thing is still in one piece! Anyway, on page 52, it has a 1 1/2 page article on Patsy, and details of how the tape was found and how it was brought back to life! It has some wonderful pics that I have never seen before, and the Cline is just as beautiful as ever! It also says that 3 of her recordings are heard for the first time on this record. The songs are "Stupid Cupid", "Shake, Rattle and Roll" and "When my Dreamboat Comes Home", and I am so excited about this I could just burst!

Country Weekly ought to be commended on this wonderful article, they too are helping keep Patsy's memory alive, as well as the kind folks that are releasing this wonderful album, that was once lost and now is found for all of us to enjoy! The thing is, this is the first time she worked since she got out of the hospital after her car accident, she was seated on stage on a stool, she could hardly walk (on crutches still) and she still delivered a sell-out performance! Another thing, this production was made from the dance hall's broadcast booth. The had an old tape recorder in the booth and recorded the whole show, and then a copy of the tape was given to Patsy and Charlie, somehow the tape made its way into the basement of their Nashville home in a box.

Two years after Patsy died, Charlie sold the house to another Decca recording artist, Wilma Burgess, the tape was left behind. Ten years later, Wilma's brother Ken, a jeweler, sold a tape player to another jeweler, William Frazee, for $50.00. To sweeten the deal, he threw in a couple tapes. One of them he mentioned, was a recording of a Patsy Cline show. Frazee was more of a rock'n'roll fan, so he left the tape untouched until the early 1990's, when a friend in the music business said that the tape might be valuable. MCA, which owns Decca, agreed and began working on restoring the fragile piece of history. It's a wonder that it made it that far, because Frazee said in an interview that he had a nasty habit of recording over things in those days. I find it completely tremendous that after all these years the tape got passed through so many hands, and was still in good enough condition to be restored, and thank goodness Frazee didn't record over this treasure!

He never knew what he had, nor did Charlie, I think! But anyway, we have only 5 days until we, ourselves get to hear this legendary artist perform from over 38 years ago. I hope there are enough fans out there that will go and hit the stores, and this record too will become platinum and she will be a success once again! I find it totally amazing that after 34 years after her death, she is still making the charts and her records are still selling like she never died. And that my friends, is the reason we all love her so!

Let's see... Answer questions or tell ya some news? Decisions, decisions. Ok, the news first! Aug 5, TNN's Prime Time Country will spot light the Cimarron Release. Leann Walmack will be a performer. They are still working out the details. Call 1-615-889-6611 for tickets. I plan on being there! What about you? I have heard "Dreamboat" by Fats Domino. I have heard that Kay Starr had a hit and that Patsy's version is like hers'. Of course, Kay was a big influence. Lisa, glad you saw "Yesterday and Today". Patsy went on to sing "A Church, A Courtroom..." Some of the clip can be seen on "The Roots of Country Music". I must agree that Harlan and Brenda deserve Hall of Fame inductions. Can't wait for that show. Maybe I can go to that one. I had not heard that Mandy had left Alsyum Records. I met her a couple weeks ago and she said she was going into the studio this fall. So hopefully will see some chart action! 6 more days on the road and we'll hear "Live at the Cimaroon"! Always, Jimmy 7-23-97
