I keep reading over Leonard's comments, and they puzzle me. For someone who says he's a journalist, he's not well versed on his subject. Hits: No one can make a hit out of inferior material (not even LeAnn Rimes), and that's what Patsy was FORCED to record between '55 and '60. With the exception of "Walkin' After Midnight". When she signed with Decca in '60, she finally had access to the best material. And, between 1-30-61 and 10-28-63, every Patsy Cline single Decca released scored on the charts, all but "So Wrong" (#14), "Heartaches" (which only registered #73 on the POP charts) and "When You Need A Laugh" (#47) were in the Country Top 10! That's 10 singles, and out of a total of 51 tracks (most of which were album filler) that's impressive. It makes me wonder if you're only looking at her success on the Pop charts, Leonard, because Patsy considered herself a Country singer. Charlie Dick: If you see his hand behind her continued popularity, you're looking through a different set of glasses than I am. Even though Patsy was the first female soloist elected to the Hall of Fame ('73), her memory had faded. But, her records had never stopped selling. It was 1976, when Loretta Lynn released "Coal Miner's Daughter", that the Patsy Cline revival began. The book had several Patsy Cline references including an entire "Patsy" chapter. This generated renewed interest. In '77 Loretta recorded the "I Remember Patsy" tribute album, generating even more interest. When Universal Pictures turned "CMD" into a movie, they included the character of Patsy Cline (which they didn't have to do) whose story intrigued producer Bernard Schwartz enough to do further research on. The success of "CMD" at the Box Office generated even more interest in Patsy. MCA Records overdubbed 10 of her Decca tracks with new music, releasing an album and two singles. All of which did very well on the charts. Bernard Schwartz's curiousity and persistance paid off when HBO Pictures opted to make "Sweet Dreams" in 1985. No, it wasn't a blockbuster. But, I attribute that to a horrible script than Patsy Cline. Throughout the '80's and '90's, a whole new generation of female artists (Reba, k.d., Sylvia, Trisha, LEANN, and Terri Clark among them) achieve great success and cited Patsy Cline as their primary influence. In the mid-'90's, several noted music historians on assignment for LIFE magazine voted Patsy as the fourth most influential personality in Country Music history (out of 100 artists, producers and songwriters). During this time, Patsy's record sales continue to skyrocket as she is discovered by each new generation who hear their favorite artists praise her and want to find out more. Charlie himself has said on TV that he doesn't know what to attribute her continued success to, and that Patsy is probably bigger now than she would be if she was here. Patsy was a Pioneer too. She knocked down the doors for future female stars to pass through by not kowtowing to the establishment, and by her sheer success during her final three years. Looking at it from an objective standpoint, it doesn't seen she would be so popular. But, Leonard, you have to look beyond simple facts and into the hearts and souls of people who have found great comfort in the haunting and captivating voice of Virginia Patterson Hensley. "Then You'll Know" why she's admired, revered and loved. It's more than talent, it's her soul captured for the ages.

Seems like someone thought the same thing I did about Leonard's postings. Thanks "Patsy fan" Leonard, which publications do you write for? Are we familiar with any of them or your work? Give us some feedback. And, Leonard, I knew and loved Patsy Cline's music long before I ever heard of Charlie Dick. You leave the impression that your a critic, and a cynical one at that.

Patsy is a very well known singer and she has made it were all women can sing. She is a very lucky woman. I would have liked to meet her.

Just wanted to say hi and alert you to a fact that would make all the Patsy Cline fans happy. There is a singer in NE Ohio that also loves Patsy. Her name is Logan Wells ( and is a country singer also. And I have heard often that if you are listening to her and close your eyes, you would swear that it is Patsy. Check her out.

Well, I was pleased to see Jimmy Dean and Roy Clark on the Opry this weekend. All I could think of was Patsy and the early part of her career when her and Dean and Clark were getting started. And as for that opinion, well, you think Patsy is overrated? Well, hoss, look at Garth Brooks! He is overrated to the fact that his music does nothing for me any more. How can you call yourself a fan and then bash a great voice? To me, that was a bit out of reach. Patsy was a great gal and a marvelous singer, and I think that it is darn good that her recordings still stand after many years. Look at it like this: she only recorded a handful of songs, yet she is very popular all over the world, and she didn't have to smash any guitars to prove that point. No, the Cline is not overrated. In fact, this modern scene needs to be thankful for pioneers like Patsy, Texas Ruby, Dottie, Loretta, etc. I rest my case. Sincerely, Wade Settle

Hmmmmm. If Charlie Dick was a studio engineer and Patsy was alive today, I wonder if she would still have the same sound? Everyone makes a big deal about Shania Twain as being the best of the lot, but, did you notice, she DOES NOT do concerts? Her husband is a producer? Anyone with a good studio wizard can sound decent. You can bet Patsy never had any manipulations to her recordings and no engineer ever pieced a song together note by note like they do for today's "artists". Patsy was REAL. It showed in her recordings. You cannot say that about most of todays country stars. If Garth Brooks didnt smash several Takamines and have smoke and fog at his show, would people still flock to his concerts? Patsy kicked butt without the smokescreens and doodads which are standard requirements for today's acts. I do agree Winchester needs to fess up to its collective hate for the Hoss, mainly to appease us real fans who can sense the underlying jealosy and phoniness in their tributes. I'm sure I am not the only person here who sees a lot of themself in Patsy!

Hi Friends & Patsy Fans, -- WOW! I haven't been here in a couple of days and there are so many guestbook entries added since the last time I visited. The two sessions I would have liked to sit in on would be the "Faded Love" session of 2/4/63 and the following day's session at which she recorded "Sweet Dreams", "Always" and "Blue Moon of Kentucky". Comment on LeAnn Rimes: she's young and has lots of time to mature and grow into an even better singer than she is now, and she is a very good singer now. Neither she, though, or ANYONE will ever come close to "The Cline". As for Leonard's comments, I heard this before from others, and the comment that Patsy has been so heavily promoted, blah, blah, blah. I have to say, no amount of promotion could lead to the phenomenon that is Patsy Cline if she didn't have that unique, once in a lifetime talent that she possessed. Sure, good singers have come along since, and they can sing her songs, but no matter how well they might do it, they will NEVER come close to matching Patsy.

Leonard, You really should "Stop,Look and Listen" before you just "Come On In (And make yourself at home)" and then go and trash Patsy! Why you must be "Crazy" if you think Patsy was overrated! If you take the time to read the guestbook entries "Then You'll Know" why everyone thinks it is "Strange" for you to call yourself a fan. If you were even "Half as Much" a fan as you claim to be, thoughts such as those you've expressed would never have crossed your mind. If you think you're a fan, you are "SO WRONG"! "Yes, I Understand" that you are entitled to your opinion, but, "How Can I Face Tomorrow?" without letting you know that WE are NOT "Foolin' Round" when we say Patsy is the greatest, "Today, Tomorrow and Forever". If you don't sign on again "Anytime" soon, I won't "Fall to Pieces". In fact, "That's My Desire".

I tend to get a little testy at times, and my previous entry is no exception. Especially when I disagree with someone. Leonard, you have a right to your opinion. And, so does everyone who signs this guestbook. Whether others agree with it or not. I'll admit, there are countless artists who have had equal or greater successes in their careers. But, they've had a longer time to do it. Patsy Cline did not. Most everyone who visits this site feels she is the very best. Many have said it, but I will repeat: it's not just the talent and the voice that draws us to Patsy Cline, it's the emotion her performances convey. There are thousands of singers who perform songs from the Patsy Cline repertoire, but none of them can touch her. Let's not forget, there aren't many people who get the recognition Patsy has. Who was the first female soloist elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame? How many singers have come into Nashville saying they were influenced by Jim Ed Brown, Skeeter Davis or Donna Fargo (not to slight these excellent performers)? You will probably never see a biographical movie or stage play about these folks. And, the postal service will probably never issue a stamp in their honor. It's takes a considerable person and talent to receive these accolades. And Leonard, there's no telling what might have happened had Patsy lived. The potential for phenomenal success was there, she just didn't have the time for it to happen. As Robert K. Oerman said in the "Tragedies" special on TNN, death at an early age causes people to look back on an artist and their entire body of work. Not just one or two performances. In the 34 years since her death, people have had an opportunity to listen to Patsy's recorded legacy and fall in love with her, including people born long after she was gone. That is why "12 Greatest Hits" is still #3 on the Billboard Country Catalog Chart 30 years after its release. That's why Patsy continues to be one of the best selling artists for MCA year after year. That's why many of her hits are country standards. That's why she's considered a legend. Will we be able to say this about many of today's stars 30 years from now?

While I respect your constitutionally-protected opinion, Leonard, this is probably not the best place for you to express it! Hosses around these parts are pretty protective of The Hoss, so surely you can't expect your opinion to be welcomed with open arms here! Please remember, however, that your opinion is indeed that: an opinion. We cats around here have our own opinions about what "the truth" is. Now, isn't this nice, we've been able to disagree without my having to kick the tar outta you! :-)

Leonard: For someone with the e-mail address "patsyclinefan1" and who says he would have like to have sit in on one of her recording sessions, you're most recent entry in the guestbook is bizarre. Doesn't sound like a fan to me. Why bother visiting this site if you think Patsy is overrated? She's 10 times better than many of the "superstars" of both yesterday and today.

Picking the two recording sessions I would have attended was a tough assignment Lisa, but after some thought I narrowed it down to August 24, 1961 and February 4, 1963. None of my top 5 personal favorites were recorded at those sessions, but, I picked the first one for the variety of styles and emotions used in describing heartache. From the upbeat "Who Can I Count On" and "Seven Lonely Days", to the exotic beat of "Foolin' Round" to the pensive, "Have You Ever Been Lonely" to the painfully reverberating "I Love You So Much". I picked the February 4, 1963 session because that's when "Faded Love" was recorded. From what I've read and heard about the song and the session, this was one song Patsy really desired to record and when she finally did, was extremely pleased with the results. I agree with the others that Patsy "knew" this would be the last set of recordings. She accomplished professionally, everything she had set out to and was joyful about that. As far as I'm concerned, Patsy "owns" "Faded Love". No one before, since or in the future will ever be able to top that performance. It would have been an absoulte delight to have been a part of it! I believe that in a past guestbook signing, someone else pointed out the irony of the title of Patsy's final song of her last recording session, "I'll Sail My Ship Alone". Yes, she knew!

Hey Folks, I wanted to say hi. To my darling Lisa, of course it was a happy occassion for Patsy at her last recording session. Of course she got excited and broke out the champagne. But, let's not forget the story that came out of that session not only from Jan Howard, but I have heard it from Dottie West, that Patsy was so pleased with the recording that she got up and went to Harry Silverstein's office and came back with "A Church, A Courtroom, And then Goodbye". It was said that she commented on that being the first and "Faded Love" being the last. Now you can interprut that anyway you like. My feeling is that Patsy knew, she may have made it sound like she was merely pointing out chronological fact so that no one would worry. But, I think Patsy truly knew that this was the last session, that's why she was in such a celebratory mood. She knew she had realized her dream, and now it was over. So she for once in her life didn't fight it, she accepted and let it happen. Otherwise I think she would have riden back to Nashville with Dottie and Bill West. Patsy was a daredevil, but do you think she would have been brazen enough to get in a plane she knew might have problems? I think she thought she had to do it. It was destined. And there in lies the gap between the eternal cynic(me), and and the ones who still cling to the thought of this being a tragic accident. I am not saying that the other theory is invalid, this is just the way I feel. That's why I would have loved to be in on the sessions that produced her last album. I would like to have the opportunity to see Patsy, and watch the emotion in her eyes as she gave what she knew to be her final recordings. I think it gave her great satisfaction to know that after all she'd been given, she had saved the best for last. I'll be loving you, Always, Mark

All: I just stopped by the "Sydney Film Festival" site and read a review about "Doing Time For Patsy Cline". If I'm reading this correctly, the "Patsy Cline" of this movie is not our Patsy. Instead, it's the name of the female lead. It does have country music overtones, but that's not the focalpoint. I'm sure when and if we see this movie, we'll find that the character was named after the country music legend. To Leonard: When did this session you refer to take place? It's not in the official discography. Is this something you've heard or know from absolute fact. If this session took place, I'm sure Decca/MCA would have already released it due to the demand for Patsy Cline material. Is it possible it's one of the Armed Forces radio shows Patsy did? My mother told me long ago that a late night DJ here used to play recordings of Patsy singing "Tennessee Waltz" and "My Baby's Gone". I thought she was mistaken until "TW" was released on the "Collection" box set, and we know it came from an Armed Forces show. If you can provide us some more details, I would appreciate it.

Lisa, which two sessions would I have liked to sit in on? Hmmm! One would have to be the "Pieces" session 11-16-60, since "Pieces" is my all time favorite Patsy Cline song. The other would have to be the "Faded Love" session 2-4-63. She just shows so much emotion in that performance that I would have liked to have seen her put it on tape, and watch the musician's reactions to it. Here's a question for all of you: How many of you would like to see MCA and the Country Music Foundation release a video of the existing Patsy Cline television footage? I know I would. If you agree, write or e-mail MCA Nashville. Charlie and Julie, what are your thoughts on this?

But, Mark, while Patsy did apparently weep during a couple of Feb '63 sessions, you can't say she was sad about that last session. Everyone says she had a ball at the last one, invited some pals to join her, opened up champagne. Ya gotta say that she finished on a high note! :-)

Hey Folks, I did a little research on that Australian film. I didn't find much but here is a link to the Australian Film Festival where the film was the opening night feature. It has some pictures of the cast and the opening, but no info about the movie itself. Anyway, to get there click on the URL at the end of this message. As far as the 2 sessions I want to attend, well I'd love to see them all. But I think that the last sessions Patsy did in February, 63 would be on the top and the sessions from November, 60 would be next these are what I consider the first and the last. Patsy was coming into her own in 1960 with "I Fall to Pieces", and she was tying up the loose ends on the last sessions, I thnk the rumor about her crying on all the songs in 1963 was because she knew this was it. There would be no more. I really feel like Patsy knew that she would never see that studio again. Oh well, it's a theory. I hope you all have a great weekend. Talk to you all soon. And Per, can you see if the person that posted the Aussie movie info can get us some more details. Thanks. I'll be loving you, Always, Mark.

Howdy! Bill, thanks for the info re: the film clips. BLynn, I hadn't thought before about how PC would've ended "Blue", but you are right; I think she would have gone *down* in a torchy way, as on "IF2P". You guys, meeting Cath was such a joy, it's always great when PC fans meet! She's a doll. Julie, I used to have such a Barbie collection coz my grandmas handmade stuff for them; too bad I gave it all away when I turned 15! Of course, we gals were always happy to dress them up in washrags & pretend they had on evening gowns! Now Song o' the Week: I'm overriding the database again because I have a neat question to pose to each of you. If you could go back in time & sit in on TWO sessions, which 2 would you pick? The 1st one because PC is very excited & a little nervous? Or perhaps one of the hits? "Crazy" because it's a singular event? Do you go for quality or quantity? "She's Got You" or "Faded Love" sessions because of the intense emotion? The last one because of PC's great joy at that session? Tell us! We'd like to hear it! Here are mine: 2-13-58 because I get a good quantity of songs I like (Just OO Reach, I Can See an Angel, Come on In, Let the TD Fall, NNMore, If I Could Only); and 11-16-60 because IF2P, Shoes & Lovin in Vain are 3 favs, also because of the brouhaha surrounding IF2P. Also it's 2 days before my birth, ha! What are YOUR 2 picks??

I answered Wade's question about the "Pieces" & "Rose" clips by e-mail, but thought I'd post the info here as well. The clips of "I Fall To Pieces" and "San Antonio Rose" featured in the "Remembering Patsy" video are from Patsy's final television appearance on February 26, 1963. One week to the day before the plane crash. I wonder why they didn't show the "Pieces" clip during the Harlan Howard tribute on the CMA awards like they did for the other songs? Maybe they couldn't get clearance, or maybe they don't know about it since it isn't controlled by the Country Music Association or the Country Music Foundation.

Hey Folks, I just wanted to say hi, and agree with Lisa about that chick who sang for Patsy last night. Girl, I needed more than a sorbet to get rid of that taste. I also wanted to find out about this Australian movie. I read about it in the news section and just now in the book. Does anyone have any idea if we can see it here in the states. I'm guessing it will probably be at one of the smaller screening room type theatres. But wouldn't that be so cool. Also, everyone should try and check out the new Oliver Stone movie "U-turn". It has, from what I can tell from the trailers, a Patsy soundtrack, and even some dialouge in the movie about her. Also the new Kevin Kline film, In & Out uses "Crazy" for about 30 secs, but the movie is worth seeing even without this gem. I hope we find out more about this movie from Australia. Can't wait to rush out to the import bin and buy the soundtrack. I'll be loving you, Always, Mark

This is for Julie: What is Randy and your Uncle John doing now? Are they involved in Legacy? I'm just curious because they never seem to get the attention you and Charlie get. I'm sure they will get loved on just as much as you and Charlie do if they ever sign on here! This is for everybody; Please don't rag on LeAnn Rimes for the Patsy connection. If anyone needs to be blamed, it's WILBUR Rimes, her dad. If there is some truth to the stories in the trades, he is the one who is doing the pushing!

Attn: WADE SETTLE. Patsy Cline recorded "CRAZY ARMS" in 1963. The exact date of the recording is: 7 FEBRUARY 1963. You can also have a version of the same song but by JERRY LEE LEWIS on the GREAT BALLS OF FIRE SOUND TRACK (1989). Sorry but I don't have the information regarding the song HAVE I TOLD YOU... I can also tell you that on the 7 of FEBRUARY 1963, she also recorded "HE CALLED ME BABY", "YOU TOOK HIM OFF MY HANDS" and "I'LL SAIL MY SHIP ALONE". P.S.: You can have "CRAZY ARMS" on CD by buying THE PATSY CLINE COLLECTION box set (4 CD'S with over 100 songs: a must for every Patsy's fans)

Well, after watching Miss Doo-Dad sing "I Fall 2 Pieces" at the CMA Awards just now, I had to run & slap on CD#2 but FAST in order to cleanse my auditory palate! Ahhh! That's better. Patsy's better'n a Q-Tip anytime! Dang, why didn't they just show Patsy's "IF2P" video? I've got a burr under my saddle over this. Anyway, congrats to Harlan, it's long overdue, buddy! Too bad they wouldn't let him finish his doggone speech though.

I have a question for you all. I was watching "Remembering Patsy" and I heard her singing "Crazy Arms" and "Have I Told you Lately That I Love You". What I want to know is when was that recording done? It's a shame that those songs haven't resurfaced on a CD somewhere. Also I am wondering when the clips of "San Antonio Rose" and "I Fall to Pieces" were done? If anyone has answers to these questions, please pass them along to this enquiring mind.

How can anyone say that LeAnn Rimes sounds like Patsy Cline... I find this so incredibly irritating...LeAnn Rimes has a wonderful voice... she is very talented... but she sounds NOTHING like Patsy Cline! Just because the song "Blue" was written with Patsy Cline in mind for it, doesn't mean that she automatically sounds like Patsy because she sang the song. Anybody who is a true Patsy Cline fan and has listened to any of her songs, couldn't possibly hear any resemblance to Patsy's voice in LeAnn's. Patsy had a much lower, bassy tone to her voice, she would have even sung that song in a much different style... a little slower, in a lower key, and Patsy would never have ended the song in the way LeAnn did. Don't get me wrong... LeAnn did a wonderful job on "Blue" and she is a talented, terrific singer... but I'm so sick of hearing the LeAnn/Patsy comparison... LeAnn is no Patsy Cline and she is not Patsy reincarnated as said in other boards. Her record company used the "Patsy" relation (because the writer wrote it for Patsy) as a marketing tool... they knew if people heard the name "Patsy Cline" connected to the song, that it would help garner interest in it... and it sure did. Do you think the song would have been played as much, or get the attention it did if Patsy name was never connected to it??? I don't think so... she rode on Patsy coattails...

Hi to all! To Julie: I hope to meet you someday. I've seen you on different TV shows and I'm just dying to meet you. I'm hoping to go the Opry this weekend. That's all that is on my mind here lately. Here's a good SOW: "Don't Ever Leave me Again". Great rowdy, growly song that fits the weather here-bluesy. Patsy could sing it all. Take care everyone. Anyone that wants to, please feel free to send me some e-mail. I'll be happy to reply.

Hey you all. I saw a little bit of "Today's Country". I caught the H Howard piece. Talked w/ Mildred Keith to let her know that her picture was used for this piece. She was thrilled. She had taped it to watch the next morning. She was gonna watch it after I got off the phone w/ her. Always, Jimmy 9-23-97. Ps. Julie Fudge, hope to see you Sunday at the Texas Troubadour.

Hi, everybody... Got back home from holiday just a couple of days ago and have been too busy re-enrolling at Uni for the 97-98 year to get on the computer. Well, we got to Winchester at last (this was my 5th trip to Va and the 1st time I've managed to visit Winchester). It was wonderful to be in Patsy's hometown and to see the places she would have been when she lived there. I was a couple of days too late for the Labor Day festivities, but I had a good chat with Judy Sue in the Tourist Centre and bought the 'Singing Girl' book there. It was sad to visit her grave... She just shouldn't be there. She should be in Nashville on the Opry and with her kids and grandchildren. I left 2 English pennies on the grave... One for Patsy and one in respect for her granddaughter, Virginia. It was so peaceful at the gravesite... I also had the pleasure of meeting Lisa Flood at the airport in Detroit as we changed planes there to fly to Richmond. What a star she is!!!! We had a good chat about the Cline... It was great to talk to someone who is as much of a fan as I am... Our flight was delayed by 30 mins., but we didn't care as we were having an interesting conversation and the time just flew past far too quickly!!!! Hiya Lisa, hope you and the hubby liked the sweeties!!! The flag is safely stowed and I took it to Winchester with me... I just watched a TV programme this evening which shows clips taken from police video footage. The last clip showed a couple (who were later arrested) making out in a car on the motorway (interstate) at about 70 mph. The incidental music was "Crazy" sung by the Cline. I've never thought of the song in quite that context, but it was funny nevertheless!!! Must sign off, it's late. Take care, Cath

Hello to Per and all... this is Julie, and I just wanted to check in and see what's new. Have been kind of busy, and haven't been on the net much. Lots of new entries; I'll have to catch up. Hope all are well, and having a great fall. I am jumping into scouts and cheerleading and basketball season! Made 4 (that's four) trips to the school yesterday! You can see why I am so busy. The kids keep me hopping. I'm glad a lot of you saw the visit with Jan Howard on TNN. She was so nice to do that with me. Thank you for all your nice comments about the show and the show with Gary Chapman. It was fun and he was very nice also. I have to get moving again. The days seem so much shorter now that the kids are busy at school. Can't wait till the actual games start! #:O Well, hope to be back soon. Oh, and have you seen the "Country Rose Barbie"? I have collected a few Barbies and this is one I guess I'll just have to buy. She is a first in a new Grand Ole Opry series. If you haven't seen her, she's great and has her own guitar and cowbay hat and a western cut dress with roses on it. (Everyone tells me it looks like "Patsy Cline") Hope you get to see her. Well, I'll go for now. Take care. Always, Julie

On the 9/22/97 episode of "Today's Country", entertainment reporter Jimmy Carter interviewed Jessica Lange about her new film "A Thousand Acres". He then asked her about her portrayal of Patsy in "Sweet Dreams", and she said Patsy is one of the 3 favorite character's she's played in her career. He said, after the clip was shown, that she asked about the Ryman Auditorium and "the little girl who sounds like Patsy Cline" (LeAnn Rimes). Also, a portion of "I Fall To Pieces" was played, and some pictures of Patsy shown, in a story about Harlan Howard and his induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame this Wednesday. Charlie and Lorianne read off who would be performing in the tributes to Harlan, Cindy Walker and Brenda Lee, and indicated that there would also be a few surprises. Hmmm! Does one of these include the only know performance clip of Patsy singing "Pieces". I guess we'll have to tune in to find out: Wed., September 24 at 8 pm EDT on CBS.

I adore the legend of "the Cline". Her music inspires me. In her music I sense the magnitude of her strength. Words cannot describe how her music makes me feel. I just tingle all over when I hear her voice. And there is no other singer who could ever be compared to our beloved Patsy. May her music always remain in the hearts of all who love her.

Hi All! Re: Lisa's SOW, "I Love You So Much It Hurts", talk about being able to feel the pain reverberating from within! Mark - I like your idea for the title of the "Short Stories using Patsy's song titles". Now all we need are stories to go with it. Bill - I stopped by the Time Magazine site and voted. Anyone who hasn't, I urge to do so. I was astonished by the number of votes Reba received, and can only imagine it's because the other voters knew of no other women country singers before her!!!

This is a message for JULIE FUDGE and CHARLIE DICK. This is the best way I have found to get in touch with you, so... I'm a reporter from Montreal (Quebec-Canada) but I also work for a record company. I have a big project regarding Patsy Cline and I will probably have to get in touch with you. Is there a possibility to write me back your personal e-mail address so we can keep in touch. This is serious. My e-mail adress is I would love to have news from both of you. Be sure that everything will be professionnal and, of course, personal. Till then, excuse the quality of my English. My first language is French, so... Thanks in advance.

Hi darlins! I've been thinkin' alot about the impersonator issue, and I hit upon the exact reason I feel like I do: I suddenly realized that Patsy's soul interests me even more than her sounds do. Even if a gal sort of has PC's *physical* sound, it means zero for me because PC's soul was the *essence* of the sounds she produced. Without that soul, there is only emptiness. As for never hearing her sing live? Hell, Patsy sings "live" in my head every damn time I listen to her! Come ride in my car sometime when I'm drivin' 80 mph with "Let the Teardrops Fall" or "Lovesick Blues" or "Loose Talk"! Thanks for the friendly discussion anyway! We had some fun, a few laffs. I'm excited that Carly Simon has a new CD, "Film Noir", that is chock-full of good pop songs for Patsy! Yes, Mark, we're ready for more from kd as well. Shakin' Song o' the Week: 08-24-61, "I Love You So Much It Hurts". Wow, what a sound this one has. Emotion-packed, the echo-sound of eternity. You feel Patsy envelop the mike. Who likes this one?

As always, hi to everyone and I hope that all are well. I'm going through Patsy withdrawal syndrome. All of my Patsy music is away from me, and I'm about to go crazy. :) How about this for a song of the week: "I'll Sail my Ship Alone". A great song recorded by Patsy in 1963 and first recorded by Moon Mullican in 1950 for King records. As always, she adds a new light to an old standard. I'm delighted to hear that the Ryman will be hosting another round of "Always Patsy Cline". I will have to put the off world while I go see that play. I've missed it before and it ain't gonna happen again! :) Yall take care and shake a leg... We don't care which one it is! Wade Settle

Comment: I don't understand? All your postings look okay to me... Maybe you had some trouble with your browser? /Per
I recently had an idea for this site. As it turns out, Lisa suggested the same idea a while back. Per likes the idea and suggested it be presented again in the guestbook to get some feedback from the "regulars" and others who might like the idea. Fans would write short stories using titles and/or lines from Patsy's songs. These stories could be humorous, serious, fiction, non-fiction, etc. I think it would be great fun to see how creative we could be. What do you think? Also, any suggestions as to what this page should be titled?

Comment: Well, I guess it's okay to try and look like Patsy and sound like Patsy in the shows that are made about her, but when a singer is "on her own" with her own show, I think she should be herself, and NOT try to sound or look like Patsy, even if she is singing Patsy's songs. /Per
I wish I had thought to come here before, and check out this guestbook since the Patsy Cline Weekend Celebration by her fan club here in Winchester. It was a wonderful weekend!! The weather was perfect!! And I noticed some sad comments regarding "impersonators"... I have see many women, including myself, who sing Patsy's songs because they are great songs, made unforgettable by Patsy alone. We can only sing them now in her memory and TO her memory. Sometimes people say we, in Winchester, do nothing to honor her. We do, have, and will always. And hearing her sing 'live' now is sadly impossible. We keep her going with tapes and CDs and singing her songs, not as an imitation, for I have NEVER heard ANYONE say they were trying to IMITATE her, but sing her songs in respect TO her. We had Mrs. Logan Wells here that weekend, and she has a lovely style all her own, she has a wonderful personality and she DID NOT CLAIM to impersonate the Cline, she said that. I personally thought her rendition of Patsy's songs were very Cline-like. The throaty resonance and tones were very much like Patsy, enough to make heads turn and whispers throughout the room, were "Wow, she sounds like Patsy a lot!!", and she blushed when I told her so, and denied and resembelence. No one can be The Cline, and no one really ever will be. But let's not cut down the voices who may resemble Patsy's enough, that when they sing her songs, we tear up. We did tear up in Winchester that night and rose to our feet to applaud what we felt was a fitting tribute to the Lady Of The Hour, Patsy Cline. I saw the emotion in your eyes and those tears at the service for Patsy at her gravesite. You love her just like we do. We wish you much success in your career, Logan, you do what you do best, Honey, in your own style and you do not need to ride on any ones coat tails for your voice is haunting and clear and wonderful, but don't stop doing Patsy's songs either, I am sure if she could hear you, she would say, "Go for it Hoss, You got what it takes."

Loved your page on Patsy. She was, and still is my favorite singer. It's so sad that her life was cut short, right in the prime of it! I hope her husband has had time to regret the way he treated her. If she had lived, I don't think she would have stayed in the marriage with him.

Hello All! I figured I should add my two cents to this impersonator controversy, so here goes. As one who firmly believes in the freedoms guaranteed by the First Amendment, I feel performers who want to TRY to emulate Patsy certainly have every right to. That doesn't mean I have to like it or go to see them perform! Also, just because a particular song is identified with Patsy, doesn't mean that no one else should record or perform it. After all, many of Patsy's songs once "belonged" to others before she recorded them, BUT, Patsy sang these songs in her OWN voice and used her OWN style. As for whether or not these "tribute shows" truly expose the general public to the ONE and ONLY Patsy Cline, is debatable. I believe more people have been introduced to Patsy by The Cline herself, (jukeboxes "Crazy", and TV commericals ("I Fall To Pieces" and "Walkin' After Midnight"), than from the current stage productions, books or the rarely shown movies about her. As for me, I will continue to listen to my CDs and watch videos of the REAL PATSY CLINE!!! Re: SOW - Yes, I agree with Lisa's impression and particularly agree with Amber about when Patsy sings the line "Hate...". Mark - re: kd lang, Hell yes, by all means she should cut another country track!

Hey Folks, I just wanted to add my input on the impersonator issue. My theory is that as much as we all wished otherwise, Patsy is no longer here. Her music is what I fell in love with. It wasn't until much later that I came to know Patsy as a person. It took quite a while for me to read the biographies and various other print materials about her to realize where that emotion came from. But I must say as I did come to know more about Patsy the person it put a lot of things about Patsy the singer in perspective. As I have stated before I feel like some people shouldn't be allowed to step into Patsy's pumps. But then you have people like Mandy who are just so good in their own right that you have to like them. If Patsy could see this she would have been deeply honored by what has happened since her death. I don't think that Patsy would have so much enjoyed the people imitating her but I think that she would have loved the noise that's being kicked up over her. I also think that Patsy would not mind people using her name to try and get started in the music business. Let's face it, if it had not been for Patsy there would be no Loretta, Dottie, Dolly, Reba, LeAnn, Trisha, and those are just a select few who have benefitted from performing Patsy's material. Don't get me wrong I'm not saying that these ladies would never have been stars, I just don't think that they would be half as successful as they are if they hadn't had Patsy's coat tails to ride on. And I think that's what Patsy intended all along. She never forgot where she came from and she always tried to help out anyone who had the same little girl dreams that she knew too well. So if the impersonator is trying to be Patsy it isn't going to work. However, if the person is using Patsy's style in order to help further a career, at least they picked a singer that had class, charisma, charm, and above all else, talent. Patsy would appreciate the homage that they are paying to her just by saying how much of an influence she was on them. And that's about the size of it. On a different note I have a point to ponder for you all. Do you think that kd lang should do another country album? I personally feel like country music needs a queer personality. I think we are ready for that. Besides, if I ever get the nerve to go back to Nashville (I sang at Tootsie's last year) at least I will have something in common with a singer and maybe I can ride her coat tails all the way to the bank. Just a thought, what do ya'll think. I'll be loving you, Always. Mark

I see my comments about Patsy Cline impersonators have stirred up quite a frenzy here. Well, I guess we all have our opinions, mine have changed. I think "Tributes" are pay great respect to someone, etc. Patsy would have either been: a) Thrilled or b) Furious! So, let's leave it at that, how about it? Now, onto other things. I love the Song of the week, Patsy sounds so clear and so emotional as she sings it. When she sings "...hate the site of that courtoom" you can really feel the "hate" as she put it. I want to wish Patsy a happy belated birthday!!!! Can you believe she would have been 65? In the "Patsy Cline collection" booklet from MCA, it states that Patsy is forever "youthful" and "joyous" etc., in our minds. That is so true, she will never grow old in my heart!!!! Well, that's all for now...*Amber*

Ok Here I go on the "impersonators". Guy, you said pretty much what I was thinking. I do think it does expands the fans of Patsy. It also opens the eyes of the fans to other art cultures (plays). If it had not been for some of these shows I wouldn't have experienced theater. I will explore other types of shows. Nobody can sound like or be Patsy. She was one of kind and still is! So if anything enjoy another form of art and maybe have a few laughs. Most of these shows I have seen have some comedy element. I for one will be in Nashville for the "Always" show. Mandy and Tere are my favorites!!! Onto SOW: For a song that is over 40 yrs old it sure is current! Always, Jimmy 9-13-97

I thought I would read everyone's comments before I weighed in on the impersonator discussion. I don't mind someone paying tribute to an artist in that way, as long as that person has the talent to back it up. I don't think anyone here would belittle Beverly D'Angelo or Mandy Barnett for their portrayals of Patsy, because both are marvelous singers and actresses (Yes, Mandy is also acting when she performs the "Always" stage show). And, I have seen a few remarkable impersonations of different people. But, when someone tries too hard to look, act and sound like a famous artist or other celebrity, the end result is less than pleasing and they might think about finding another line of work. How many Elvis impersonators have you heard that sound like a "Hound Dog" themselves? A couple of years back, there was a "Tribute to Patsy Cline" stage show in Pigeon Forge, TN that featured a regional singer as Patsy. One of the local TV stations interviewed her for its Noon news entertainment report, and showed a clip from rehersal. The singer said "I would have to try real hard to not sound like Patsy Cline". In my opinion, it was just the opposite. But, I guess when you have the Jordanaires for backup and Walter Haynes (who played steel on Patsy's recordings of "Crazy" and "She's Got You") as a member of the band, as this show did, you might think you do sound like her. The issue of impersonators has been around for a long time, and it will never go away. Everyone has differing opinions, so at least we'll have an interesting topic of discussion for some time.

Put me in Lisa's corner on the "impersonator" issue. I don't care if it is labeled a "Tribute" or whatever. It is still a fake! First Elvis, then the Beatles (who are overrated as it is) and now Patsy Cline. If you can not be you on the stage, don't try to be someone else! I was embarrassed and disgusted by the impersonator Gary Chapman had on a while back! She was terrible in her own right and it was made even worse with her Patsy copy cat antics!

Hi everyone - Well, Lisa, I've got mixed feelings about your comments on the so called "impersonators" of Patsy. While I definitely agree that no matter how good they are they just can't touch Patsy's performances, her style, her special sound, her special phrasing, etc, I don't agree that they are doing Patsy or her fans a dis-service. I think the many, many tributes to Patsy, both on the Internet, on television, and the live shows such as "Always," and "A Closer Walk" help to introduce her to a wider audience and to new fans every day, month and year. There are people today who are big fans who weren't even born before Patsy died in 1963, and I believe that the tributes and live shows helped to create these new fans. I was introduced to Patsy Cline in 1980 by Beverly D'Angelo's performance in "Coal Miner's Daughter," and was so impressed that I just had to go out and look up the original, and I think that many others get to know Patsy in that way. So, the impersonators or those who sing her songs do a service. I really don't think any of them believes that they can ever be as good as Patsy. Harlan Howard said it best, "There will never be another Patsy Cline". AMEN

I just got some good news from a friend on the web. He said that the original Nashville cast of "Always...Patsy Cline", including Mandy Barnett and Tere Myers, have agreed to reprise their roles. The event will be held at the Ryman again for 11 days only, starting at the end of December thru the first of January. He also said that Mandy Barnett is working on an album with Owen Bradley, Patsy's producer. Should be great!! I have the soundtrack to "Always", but you really have to see the show to get the full effect. It's wonderful.

Hi folks! Well, with all due respect to the comments made since I signed in last Friday, I still feel that it is insulting to Patsy to say, "Hey, Patsy, what you did was so easy that even I can do it! Here goes!" Then they proceed NOT to do it, while merrily thinking that they ARE. No, I'm sorry, the music died on March 5, 1963, and sitting around listening to other gals and "pretending" just ain't good enough for me! I know, I know, my standards are ungodly high! Hey, wasn't it a blast to see Patsy on TNN twice this week? I only recorded that one show to see Bobby Bare, so I was thrilled I happened to be recording it! Thanks Julie 'n Jan! Song o' the Week: 06-01-55, "A Church, A Courtroom, and Then Goodbye". I always enjoy this one for its weepiness & the style Patsy employs here. I like how she sings the word "forever". What else? Some of y'all tend to send me e-mail about SOW, but let's hear your opinions right hyar!:)

Thanks Amber and Jimmy for the lovely reviews of the Patsy Cline Festival over Labor Day weekend. It was fun, wasn't it!! I appreciate your kind remarks on my performances!!:o) In response to Lisa's comments about "impersonators"... I really don't consider myself a Patsy "impersonator"... I don't dress to look like her... (I'm blonde, tall, blue eyed) exact opposite of Patsy actually!!! And I don't try to act like her. I am myself... I just happen to sound like her when I sing her songs or those of similar nature... I also do a wide variety of other music from 40's big band thru current pop & country... and have developed my own sound. When I sing Patsy's stuff, I can't help but sing it just like she did it... she was and still is the BEST!!! I hate when someone takes a hit song and then performs it differently in style... like "Crazy" for instance... I've heard many a woman try to sing it differently from the way Patsy did it... and (this is my opinion, only!!) it just doesn't cut it! Patsy has made such an impression on folks with her vocal talent and musical style that you can't help but be influenced by her incredible performances!!! Every country music star, especially female, will tell you that Patsy Cline was a major influence in helping them to learn to sing a song with your gut... with raw emotion... those little yips, yodels, sighs, and tears...that's true emotion - and that's what we love about her! It has been said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery! I think Patsy would be proud and flattered that so many people love and respect her for the legendary performances that she left us with. I feel extremely blessed with this gift... and I'm sincerely flattered when people feel that I sound like Patsy - who could not be flattered - If their gonna compare you to someone... hey... it might as well be the best!!! :o) I haven't been able to see many of the Patsy tribute shows - I did see "A Closer Walk with PC" here in Cleveland a couple of years ago... and unfortunately, I can't remember the lady who played Patsy...she was a gal in her late 50's maybe... but she was great... I also have Mandy Barnett's tape of her live show at the Ryman... and it's incredible... These people are not trying to say they are "Patsy" reincarnated, etc... but they do sound very, very much like her... and it's fun to go and see a live person doing a live performance of the songs we love best... Unfortunately, Patsy is not here to be able to do that for us... but we can attend these Tribute Shows and sit and watch and even close our eyes for minute and pretend that she's there on that stage... enjoying what she did best! I think she'd like that!!

Got off the phone earlier w/ the mgr of the Texas Trobadour and Cindy was telling me that Sept 28 (Sund) that they were planning a end of season premiere. They are going to invite some members of the Grand Ole Opry for this show. This should be a special evening and lots of fun. The show official ends in Dec for the season and will start again by May of '98. Call 1-615-885-0028 for info and tickets. Also, Sept 29 Mandy Barnett will be performing at Cafe Milano in Nashville. I hope to be at both!! Email if you're going. Always, Jimmy 9-11-97. PS. Julie Fudge, thanks for sharing your scrapbook w/ Jan Howard and us Monday. Jimmy

Hi to all and belated birthday wishes to the late Patsy Cline. Her music still inspires me as it does countless others that are enthralled by her golden voice. Due to the fact that I am in college and that I do not own a computer, I am not signing here as often as I'd like. Saw the "Tragedies" special on TNN and enjoyed it thoroughly. I hope to hear from some of you fans out there and especially from Lisa and Amber. It's amazing that she is getting this enourmous praise even after 35 years. I hope that someday people will realize the great depth in Dottie West's music and also Texas Ruby. Ruby was a huge influence to Cline, but unfortunately, hardly any recordings exist on CDs (if you're lucky there are 3 different LPs, and old 78s). Per, keep up the great work. This site should get a Grammy--it's that great. This ole boy has to go and hit those books some more. God bless you all. Always, Wade

New VHS copies of "Sweet Dreams" are not currently available. You might try hunting at flea markets and garage sales for a copy. How about a letter writing campaign to HBO to get them to re-release it.

Just found your site - Love it, love it, love it. I've been a big fan of Patsy's for around 20 years now. My daughter gave me the MCA - 4 cd set for Christmas and any time I need "perking" up, I just play "Honky Tonk Merry-Go-Round" and all is right with the world! I'm trying to find a copy of the "Sweet Dreams" video but none of the video/music stores I've asked can order it. Does anyone know where I could get a copy? Saw "Always, Patsy Cline" a couple of months ago and really enjoyed it. Glad to know there are lots of other Patsy fans - keep up the good work!

It is great to read so many comments from like-minded fans of Patsy's... She was so special and her sound will live on for future generations to discover and enjoy. Patsy, on your birthday I send my best, and my deep sense of appreciation for all that you gave to us in your music. I would like to correspond with anyone who'd care to, please e-mail me anytime.

Sending best wishes to our angel on her 65th birthday. Also, a footnote to the earlier postings about the TNN shows. "Tragedies" will air Tue. 9-9-97 at 8 pm EDT, and is the second installment in the series. This episode covers Patsy Cline to Dottie West. "Country Weekly" has a brief note in its 9-16-97 issue (This Week in Country Music page) about Patsy & Charlie's wedding 40 years ago on 9/15. "Cimarron Ballroom" is not listed in the Billboard Top 40 chart for the week ending Aug. 30 that is published in this issue. Last week, it was #32.

Hey gang, I am back. Lord, I am still tired. First let me add my birthday wishes to Patsy. Well, Winchester was a blast, even though the weekend was overshadowed by the passing of Princess Di. Kinda ironic for us. 2 great ladies, young kids, and car wrecks. I arrived in Winch. Thurs. Went to DC, a good place to have a car wreck w/ the stop lights to the side of the streets! Friday started w/ breakfast and then to the vistor center were we meet up with more fans and friends. This was a good place to meet folks. Then to Kurtz center for some shopping. Then we headed over the library to surf the net on Patsy. My gang really enjoyed this page and Amber's. We could have stayed there all day. I don't think the library would have liked that.

That evening we went to the the silent auction and dinner. We all got see one another at last. We were entertained by Debbie Miles and Logan Wells. 2 very talented ladies. Logan was able to stay the weekend. As a matter of fact Logan and her family stayed across the hall from me. I haven't heard the figures from this fund raiser yet. One other important thing! I met Amber! Folks, talk about nice. We had a really nice visit that afternoon, and she got to see the "famous" picture album. She scanned a few for her page. That evening I met Daw G. and Linda Cunningham. Me and Linda have been at this weekend for a couple years and never really meet. I really enjoyed it.

Sat. was our luncheon and picnic. The picnic gave us some time to go over our scrapbooks and chat really good. Also some Karooke singing. In between this I started my new job w/ the Chamber. A tour guide! Judy Sue asked me to help her w/ a bus tour of Patsy sites. She really didn't need me. I learned more from her! Thanks. That evening was the Kountry Krackers dance. Some of us choose to hang out at the pool and relax. Sun afternoon Mrs. Hensley's family had a grave site memorial for us. This was nice and gave everyone a chance to pay our respects. That evening Mrs H. had her banquet. Many may not be to familiar for this purpose. At this banquet they awarded a student the Patsy Cline Memorial Scholarship. This year the winner was a young gentlemen that Mrs. H. babysat and was a big influence on him! It is nice to see that Patsy's name is able to help the young generation w/ their education! Also at the banquet Mrs. H met w/ Patsy's fans and shared some of Patsy's belongings, such at the shoes Patsy is wearing on the picture used on CB album. I have a suprise coming for you all. It will take some time.

Well, Mon. we had breakfast and said our goodbyes. A weekend too short! Let me take this oppurtunity to say some thank you's. To Mel and JD for hosting and organizing, it was fun! To Charlie Dick, thanks for being around and taking the time to be w/ the fans and answering questions. To Gail Bliss, Logan, and Debbie: You all are very talented. Thanks for singing. To Julie Armel and Judy Sue, and of course Phil Hunter. You all do a great job keeping Patsy memory alive and respected. Carolyn Rutherford of MA productions (she is associate producer over the "Closer Walk..." shows) thanks for coming. To my dear friends the Armstrongs (you've seen entries mostly from Sherri and Marnie), thanks for coming and sharing all those great stories w/ me and everyone!! (You all don't know what ya missed). George Hamilton IV, thanks for coming and entertaining. It is easy to see why Patsy liked you. Two of the most talked about people this weekend were Per and Amber. People are amazed, glad, and thrilled with what you two are doing. This whole internet thing was the "buzz". Margery Harris and I traveled to Nashville Mon. On the way down we met George Hamilton IV at Wendy's! Small world.

Tues we went to see "A Closer Walk..." Terri Williams was not able to be with us due to personal matters. Her understudy Lisa Layne potrayed Patsy. A great job! I haven't seen Lisa perform in a couple years. Danny Pickets also costars in this show. Watch out for this guy, folks, he is funny. On Wed. we headed to Camden with Mario Munoz of CA (he is doing the star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame). Spent most of the day there. Mark W. I hope you made it. Thurs. Margery and Mario went back to the see "A Closer Walk". Terri was here this evening and did a great job. I got there for the second half. Terri was kind enough to have me as her guest Fri. for the breakfast show she does w/ Del Reeves and Jeanie Sealy. I missed Terri's portion due to a car wreck, not me someone else... Remember I said I meet G H IV? He invited us to be his backstage guest Fri at the Opry. Me and Mario went,. G H took us on a brief tour. He had to get ready so we went wandering around!. Ever see those people sitting in the benches on the stage? Well, you gotta be guest of someone to sit there. Cool view.

That evening I met Jeannie Sealy, Portor Wagner, Billy Walker and Jean Shepard. Saw so many others that it is all unreal! Also someone named Alan Jackson was there! I got 3 ft from him. Thanks George! What an evening! Well, I'll let ya go, those were the highlights, so many other great things happened. I look forward to meeting the regulars in the future.... Always, Jimmy 9-8-97. PS. Did you all wish Amber a Happy Bday? It was 9-6-97!

I grew up listening to all of the country legends and the woman who has always sparked the fire for me was Patsy Cline. Her voice simply amazes me. I love the words to her songs and the rythm which carries them. My favorite Patsy Cline song of all time is "Walking After Midnight". I have several others such as "Stop The World", "Half As Much", and "She's Got You". I was recently visiting Nashville Tenn. for the first time and was glad to see just how much she is remembered. I truly wish that she had lived. I wonder where her life would have gone. JP

I was quite excited about finding this website devoted to Patsy Cline! I am an avid fan of Patsy Cline's music after my mother and grandfather exposed me to it as a teenager. I own the 104-song Patsy Cline CD Box Set. I play it frequently. I have read two books about Patsy Cline's life and career in country music. I had the privilege of seeing Mandy Barnett perform her tribute concert to Patsy Cline in Columbus, Ohio three years ago. It was wonderful! I look forward to future visits to this website.

I love Patsy Cline songs. I have many of her cassettes and CD's. I perform in many variety shows and have had people come backstage to tell me that I sound just like her - when I listen to my tapes, I don't see it as much as they do. However, I usually try to get my own style of doing her songs but at times, it's hard not to do it the way she did. I do a Medley of "Crazy/Sweet Dreams/Walking After Midnight". I've been asked to do that quite a few places. I have a Karaoke Machine and have a lot of her Karaoke tapes. I think it was such a tragic waste of such a wonderful performer when she was killed in the plane crash. "LORI"

I know lotsa folks like impersonators & I respect that. But I don't understand *why* impersonation is an honor? Would you like it if someone came up to you dressed like you, pretending to be you? Pretending to do the job you do, the way you do it? How is that flattering? When someone says "here's my imitation of you", we get offended, don't we? This is why impersonators puzzle me. I guess you either "get" them or you don't, and I don't! The dictionary defines "tribute" as "a gift, a compliment", and I have trouble reconciling this definition with impersonation. Oh, well, don't mean to stir things up, I'm just curious. Song o' the Week: "Cry Not For Me", 12-13-57. The thing that strikes me about this number is how it starts; it sounds like it starts in the middle, like the "record skipped" or something. Interesting how the Roarin' SOW database happened to pick this song for Patsy's birthday, eh? I think it's how PC would probably like us to think about her. What will YOU be doing on PC's birthday Monday? :-)

Hi everyone... Winchester was quite a treat, I'm a-tellin' ya. I was a little shy at first since this was my first time at one of these Patsy festivals, but these folks make you feel special to be a fan of Patsy's. I met some great people, such as old friends of Patsy, fan club members and the sweet lady who took the last pic of Patsy in Kansas City. Can you guess who that is? ;) I had the priviledge of meeting a beatiful, singer named Logan Wells. She has a heck of a good voice! She sang a few Patsy songs at the fan club picnic, and afterwards, my mom turns to me and says "Amber, she's got a GREAT voice!" I tell ya Logan, keep it up, you're gonna go places. And us fan club members will help you. Just a note: *impersonation* is the greatest form of flattery. I used to feel resentment towards people imitating Patsy for $ (or not for $), but if she was alive, she would adore it! Obviously these Patsy *impersonators* just adore Patsy and that is great! That's all for now... I'll see ya when my dream-boat comes hommmmeeeeeee! *Amber*

Random Patsy thoughts... Isn't it interesting how Winchester treats impersonators better than they treated the real thing? I hope impersonators everywhere enjoy building their careers on the back of The Cline. As a performer myself, I can tell you that it's better to be a 1st-rate version of yourself than a 2nd-rate version of someone else. But that's just my lil ole opinion. I think you regulars know my feelings about impersonators!:) Sue, I also watch my Patsy videos in awe, delight, tears, wistful "what-ifs". Now you need to get the 2nd video if you don't already have it! Love y'all....

Excellent site! I saw the play, "Always...Patsy Cline" last night at the Shakespeare Festival Therater here in Montgomery. It was wonderful! I would recommend it to any fan. I am now looking for my first '45: "Walkin' After Midnight". My grandmother bought it for me in the late 50's when I was about six or seven years old. I've been infatuated with Patsy since.

It is simply a fascinating video and to quote Patsy, "I ain't got over it yet". Each and every one of her performances is sublime magic. I can't thank you enough for recommending it.

Patsy is on the charts yet again. The current issue of "Country Weekly" contains the Billboard Top 40 charts for singles and albums for the week ending August 23. "Patsy Cline Live At The Cimarron Ballroom" is listed at #32, up 5 spaces from the previous week. All without a single or a tour to promote. The Cline proves talent is timeless.

Just wanted to say thank you to all the kind folks who attended the Patsy Cline Festival in Winchester this Labor Day weekend!!! I had the honor and pleasure of performing at the benefit dinner on Friday evening and again with the Kountry Krackers on Saturday night and at the picnic on Saturday. Ya'll made me feel so welcome and I thank you for your kind remarks!!! Patsy is a kindred spirit and I love her dearly - if it wasn't for her and her music, I would not be doing what I'm doing today! The chamber of commerce has asked me back for Apple Blossom Festival in the spring, they're talking about having me sing Patsy tunes on a float in the big parade! How fun!!! Hope to see ya'll there again...and Patsy...we love you honey...and we're gonna get that ol' museum built for you yet!! George Hamilton IV... you are a sweetheart! If anybody would like to keep in touch or add their name and address to my fan club list, just email me at THANKS AGAIN!!! xo

I was really pleased to find a Pasty Cline site: it is very good. I am probably quite an unusual Patsy fan because I also like music such as: punk (Buzzcocks, Clash, Jam, Sex Pistols, Husker Du, Nirvana, Mudhoney, Green Day, Offspring), metal (Metallica, Megadeath, Motorhead, Soundgarden, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin), Indie (Cure, Wedding Present etc etc), but I also like folk and country (Dylan, Ochs, Buffy Sainte Marie, Nanci Griffith, Susan Ashton, Lynn Miles, etc etc), etc (Hendrix especially). I think what really got me into country was the "Paisley Undergroud", in other words: Green On Red, Long Ryders, Thin White Rope, Giant Sand, etc. Also: Elvis Costello, the Byrds, Elvis Presley, and Gram Parsons influenced me. I love Patsy - it's the emotion in her voice.

Wow-- How exciting to find so many Patsy fans! Hearing your reviews made me want to buy the Cimarron CD. The last Patsy CD I bought was the one from Razor and Tie that has her Arthur Godfrey performances. It's great. The best Patsy record I have is "Portrait of Patsy Cline". On that album, I love "Blue Moon of Kentucky" and "When I Get Thru With You". Patsy Cline always makes me think of summer nights and moonlight and jukeboxes. Maybe because the first time I heard Patsy (except on record collection TV commercials) was on a jukebox. My friend played "I Fall to Pieces" and "Crazy" for me and I was hooked. My love of Patsy has outlived that friendship. Some things were meant to endure...

The rest of us will hafta be content with puttin' a stack of Patsy CDs in the CD player & turning the volume up to 11! This Tuesday, I'll have the privilege of meeting Cath as she passes my way en route to Virginia! I'm the blonde with black cowboy boots, Cath! Dawn G., I adore your idea for an answering machine message! Sue, I look forward to the Wallace flick so I can hear Patsy do her stuff. Marnie, maybe you could share your Patsy letters with Per & he could include excerpts on the Memories page? We'd all be interested. Song o' the Week: from the session of 2-4-63, "Love Letters in the Sand". Amber, this should make you happy! This is a sweet song. I do find the ending odd, though: you think it's going to continue, then it cuts off. I love y'all for lovin' Patsy! PS Julie, hope the birthday was a pleasant day for you! You have so many folks here who care about you & think about you!

Hi to all, and happy belated birthday to Julie. I was overjoyed and kinda stunned when I read about the new Patsy material available through Collector's choice Music. I haven't heard that yet, but as always, I'm dying to hear it. I loved the text and cover that was added. Here is some info for those who are seeking the "That's How a Hwartache Begins" LP. You can buy a used copy through Old Homestead Records, Box 100 Brighton, MI 48116. Their phone number is 810-227-1997. I recently received a catalog, and a mono copy of the LP was listed, but I don't remember the price, but those who are seeking this LP I think should hop at this opprtunity. Also if you're around the Loretta Lynn Dude Ranch this weekend, she will be performing there, and tickets are $15.50 available in advance or the day of the show. See ya later, and Mark Willix, please e-mail me. I will surely answer you this time. Bye!

I'm getting excited and I'm not going to be there on Labur Day. I should be there the following week, though, so I can take some photos of my own. If you do send some, don't forget to put details on them... names, places, etc. Above all, have a wonderful time and do our Patsy proud. Cath

Hi folks, I just wanted to say "hi" to everyone, haven't been on lately due to work. I hope to see many of you who plan to go to Winchester to see Patsy! I had a funny incident I'll share with you all. I went to the doctor the other day and he told me "I like your answering machine message". I said "oh, so you get it?" You see, my messege, with Patsy in mind as always says "If your CRAZY, and You've got leaving a messege on your mind, tell me now and get it over, cause I'm going Walking after midnight". He said "I kept calling your house and playing it on my loud speaker for everyone to hear" he said "yeah, walking after midnight, that's my song" and he had that daydream look in his eyes as if he were remembering the good ole days. I got a kick out of it. He also said "so if you hear someone calling and hanging up alot, it will probably be me to hear the message". Well, I'm glad Patsy has inspired someone this week! I encourage you all to have PATSY messages on your answering machines, great way to make people think about Patsy! Well, I will see some of the lucky ones in Winchester. I got leaving on my mind!

Howdy Folks, Sue you are correct. It was indeed "True Love" in that TNT movie. It was during the part where Wallace and his second wife were dancing after he got shot. I don't care about Wallace but the use of Patsy was really cool. Of course this scene was set in the early 60's and that was prime for Patsy to have been playing for the first time on America radio. I just thought it was neat. I'll be loving you, Always, Mark.

Possible Patsy Alert!!! In the second half of the TNT movie, "George Wallace", there is a love scene where "True Love" is playing in the background. My hearing isn't as good as it once was and the dialogue was drowning everything out, but I was positive it was Patsy. Did anyone else notice? I watched the credits scroll, but it did not mention any of the songs in the soundtrack. If they run it again, which they will, make it a point to look and listen for it.
