Hey all. Lisa, "WAM" is one of my all time fav's. I like the music to the 57 one but prefer the Jordaires on the 61 one. Just combined them somehow and I would be a happy campier. Ya'll still watching "Yesterday and Today" on TNN? They have some new shows. To Julie F - thanks for the catalog and just today I found a Creative Memories dealer here in Lexington! Small world! Always, Jimmy 11-22--97

Hey all you cats! I had THE best birthday this week, reveling in the stack of Patsy vinyls I got -- they are just so... so... OLD 'n gorgeous! Now this morning I was having breakfast, humming "WAM" & thinking about how PC didn't much like it, yet sang it so well anyway. Once again, my brain is in-sync with the Kewl-Kat-Divine-Cline Songs Database: 11-08-56, "Walkin After Midnight". I very much disliked this version the first time I heard it; I much prefer the '61 version. I understand Patsy's frustration with it, when compared to her other songs from that time, songs which I love: "Hidin Out", "Turn the Cards Slowly", "Honky-Tonk MGR", "I've Loved & Lost Again". WAM is pretty sluggish next to those, I think. The one thing that sets WAM apart from the other kewl songs: Patsy herself. She sang it on Godfrey, and people instantly fell in love with her, period. On that first Godfrey appearance, she could have sung "The Alphabet Song", the reaction would have been the same. It just happened to be WAM. What do y'all think?

Hi, I just wrote Reba a letter telling her how hurt I was at the way she murdered "Sweet Dreams" on her video "Reba In Concert". The sad part is that I know it would be good if she sang it the way Patsy did. I don't know if any of you feel the same way but I just was put out. Best to all - Dick Malchow

Bill, I emailed Lyn with info for the video from CDNow, which lists it at $14.49 plus s/h. Of course, when it comes to differences in s/h, it all might just be a wash! Know what I mean? That's where they make the $$, no matter which company we're talking about!

Lyn: Click on the link in Guy Cesario's posting below to Reel.Com. You can order a copy of "Remembering Patsy" through them. Cost is $16.95 US, plus shipping & handling. If you want to see complete performance clips of Patsy, there is the possibility of a tremendous opportunity for all of us. A gentleman in Florida owns the footage of the very last television show Patsy was on, and he is thinking of releasing it on home video in 1998. The show was filmed February 26, 1963 (one week to the day before the plane crash), and Patsy performed "San Antonio Rose", "Walkin' After Midnight" and "I Fall To Pieces". To top if off, this is the only known performance clip of "I Fall To Pieces". Jim Walker has encouraged us to write this gentleman stating how much we want to see this footage. I'll e-mail you the address privately where you can write.

Dawn: Many thanks for your info on the P C weekend (sounds fabulous). I'm gonna start putting my pennies away now!
Lisa: Thank you for the video title, I don't know how everyone else feels but when I bought the video I was hoping to see some footage of Patsy on stage (maybe at Carnegie Hall or best of all at the Grand old Opry) maybe even backstage but I would get more enjoyment out of watching bits & pieces of Patsy footage (no matter how poor the quality) than listening to Carl Perkins, Loretta Lynn, Dottie West & Mel Tillis telling me how great she was, besides who needs that when we have this Fan Forum! It's nice for other top performers to sing praises for this wonderful lady but I had never seen Patsy on film and that's what I wanted. I pore over pictures of Patsy a lot but to watch her singing some of her songs that I know so well now would have been perfect. Sorry to sound like a whinger but the video I bought would have been more aptly called "Talking about PC". Lisa, if you could tell me of any local stores over there that may have the video "Remembering PC" and if they have an email I'd be very grateful.
Ya know I think I've become obsessed (he he!) my syndicate name on my Lottery tickets are always "crazy" and I play a game called "Diablo" on the Internet with my son and when I create the game I call it "Patsy Cline kills Diablo!" My 3 children think I'm losing it but the funniest thing is my youngest son Peter (9 years old) knows some of Patsy's songs almost as well as me and his friends come over and when I'm playing Patsy he's singing along and his mates say "How come you know these songs Peter?" and he says "Cause it's all we ever hear when Mum puts the music on and the words aren't hard to learn and they always rhyme!" (Cute Pete but true!) And now I'm movin' along, and thank ya so much for your time. Lyn Edwards

Hi, I notice there has been a number of mentions of "CW Babylon". I don't have that book but I do have "Nashville Babylon", which is quite an eye opener - very frank. Anyhow, there is a section on Patsy and it comes in Ch. 14 titled "They Fell To Pieces". It not only covers Patsy's tragic plane crash but also Jim Reeves, Rick Neslon, etc but most of the chapter deals with Patsy and there are several pictures including a picture of her bra which was lying outside of wreck. You'll have to excuse me if some of this is old stuff as I just hooked on a couple months ago. Take care, Hosses. Dick Malchow

Howdy All! Re: SOW - "Lovesick Blues". I just love this rocking tune. It's everything Lisa said and more. I just love the piano intro. And "...when he calls me sweet Bay-A-a-A-a-by, what a beautiful dream..." It's also one of Patsy's songs that really works well when she goes up and the end. "I've got the Lovesick Blu-WHO-OOZ".

Lyn in Australia: Hmmm, sounds like the video "Remembering PC" is what you need, gal. Let me know if you need help obtaining it. And yes, I've always felt that "Sweet Dreams" would be a *much* better movie without the fright wig. Cath: I've been meaning to get "CM Babylon", I've heard it's wonderful. Everyone: I got a gorgeous copy of the double LP "The PC Story" this week, and words can't describe my joy. It's an original release, and it still has 1963 air inside it -- all musty & wonderful. Now time for SOW: 1-27-60, "Lovesick Blues". Now, anyone who knows me knows I *adore* this song, and since I've had a rotten week, I consider it a gift from "above" to honor it as SOW! The twangy guitar, plinky piano, hep-cat drums, the growls, the yodels, are all reasons why I gave this one a personal TEN when I rated all of Patsy's songs on a 1-10 scale. I recommend each of you do this, as the results may surprise you. I was surprised to learn how many 4-Star songs I gave 10s to! Bye, Sugar Babies.

Hi Patsy fan! I just wanted to say Hello again to Jimmy Walker who we met in Winchester and was very nice and a great help, if your wanting to know anything about Patsy. Yes, about my answering machine, my doctor got a kick out of it, he said he kept calling my house and playing it on the loud speaker in his office! It say's "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". Hey, all I have to say is that if anyone knows me, they will know what it means! Am I right, Patsy fans? Oh Guess what? My work is planning a Christmas party, and is doing a talent show and asked me to sing! I told them, look I don't really have a singing voice, but they said "so just for fun", so I said "o.k. but you know I sing ONLY Patsy", they said "we know, that's what we want". So you all will have to help me think of what to sing. I have never really sung in public before, well if you don't count the kareoke I did at the picnic. I'm scared, help me if any of you have any suggestions! Well, I'll talk to ya'll later.

I'm sure there are many places on the internet where you could order the movie "Baja Oklahoma". I just ordered a copy from You might want to give them a try. I have not been able though, to find a new copy of "Sweet Dreams" from any of the various sources that sell movies, though I just ordered a laser disc copy from

Hey, Per, where did you get the copy of "Baja Oklahoma"? I looked in the main video stores in Newcastle and didn't find any trace of it... can anyone help? If, like me, any of you will buy anything that just mentions Patsy, at least have a look for George Jones' autobio... I reckon that there are not that many singers who could inspire "rival" artists (and I mean that in the nicest possible way!!!) to promote their records... but our Patsy managed it. Everywhere you read about her there is some big star saying how they love her and listen to her over and over. I have a new book called "Country Music Babylon" and I'm not kidding, most of the entries for the other singers mention Patsy Cline. I think it's wonderful, anyway!!!! Don't forget, if anyone has info about that film, let me know!!!!!!!!!!! Bye for now, Cath

Hi! This is my first time on this forum, and I am so glad to find like-minded people out there! I love Patsy Cline's music! Sometimes one of her songs will stay in my head until I play the CD and "release" the music! My favorite song right now is "She's got you". My brother plays it on guitar too. I also like the playfulness of "Seven Lonely Days"! Take care, and "I'll be reading you"! Bye!

Hi! to all you fans, my name is Lyn and I come from Lake Macquarie in NSW Australia. I discovered this fan forum last Sunday and have to say I'm so happy to see how many devoted people there are out there. I became a Patsy fan about 8 years ago when I bought a tape (greatest hits of C & W) which had Patsy's "I Fall to Pieces". I have since bought 5 tapes of Patsy and my latest acquisition is a boxed 4 CD set "The Patsy Cline Collection" which comes with a great book covering her too short life. I enjoyed the movie "Sweet Dreams" (although Jessica's hairstyles were nothing like Patsy's!) I recently bought a Video called "The Real Patsy Cline" (my local video store sent away for it for me) but I was sorely disappointed as there is only be about 10 minutes of footage on Patsy while the rest is on C & W celebritites reminiscing about her, so if anyone could tell me the name of a good video showing lots of footage on Patsy and where I could send to for it I'd be eternally grateful. My favourite song would have to be "A Poor Man's Roses" and lucky for me the 4 CD set I have has this song in 3 different versions (I can picture Patsy singing it with special feeling for as the book says it was a kin to her own situation having to choose between rich man, Gerald Cline, or a poor man, Charlie Dick). My dream is to visit Winchester, The Patsy Cline Museum & The Grand Old Opry. But for now I'm just "Movin' Along". Best wishes to all.

Greetings, Patsy fans, from a lifelong Patsy fan living in the very heart of the area where she got her professional start. I don't know that Patsy ever cut a record that I didn't like, but I guess my two favorites would be "Sweet Dreams" and "Poor Man's Roses", in that order. I don't have a CD player in my truck, where I do most of my listening, but I've certainly worn out more than one of her cassettes. I've read all the postings shown in this forum; Patsy would truly be proud of the adulation expressed here on a regular basis. I'm not into analyzing every line of every song; that's just not my style. I'd rather just listen to her beautiful voice and appreciate the fact that she utilized to the fullest extent throughout her all-to-short life the God-given talent she possessed, all the while regretting that I never saw her perform live. I feel the same way about Elvis.

As these words are written, there are two cassette tapes in my truck; one by Patsy and one by Logan Wells, whose talent I happily stumbled onto while browsing through all the online information I could find on Patsy. I've listened to a lot of attempts over the years to do justice to Patsy's beautiful music, and always came away disappointed... until now. Don't get me wrong; Patsy's voice was truly unique, and will never be duplicated, but if there's an artist out there who does a better job of covering Patsy's beautiful music I haven't heard her. Her treatment of "Sweet Dreams" sends chills up my spine, just like Patsy's does. Trust me on this one; Logan Wells deserves a listen by even the most rabid Patsy Cline fan. Check her out @ Y'all take care now. I hope to meet a few of you in Winchester next September. In the meantime, if any of you know where I can buy Patsy Cline tapes that don't wear out I'd sure appreciate it if you'd drop me a line.

First off glad to see Dawn and Mark O. It has been awhile and I have been wondering about you all. I hear Dawn has a real neat message on her answering machine. I think she may have said something about here once. But she has included a bunch of Patsy song titles into her message. SOW: you all are gonna wanta whip me on this one. It is not one of my favorites. Patsy did do a good job and inflicts those emotions though. Always, Jimmy 11-11-97

Hi everyone! I haven't been on in sooo long I had to stop by, been busy as a bee. Per I love the new fan forum, I think it's a good thing, good job! I see some of ya'll are talking about SOW, and I hear them everyday in my car going to and from work, my husand said, "don't you ever get tired of the same music?" Well, I haven't yet, actively for the last 3 years. I wonder if I need to go to PA (Patsy Anonymous) ha ha. I love to sing her songs, I don't even have a singing voice, but I am alot better than I used to be, because of Patsy. I see her as a guide to perfection in singing. I was able to go to Winchester to the Fan club event and met alot of nice people there. I met Charlie, and Bud Armel, and others at the picnic. I also got to meet Patsy's Mom, Hilda and her sister Sylvia! They were great letting us come see the display of Patsy's Outfits and other items at the Banquet. Sylvia was so nice to take the time to talk with my husband and I, telling us all about Patsy, she even was nice enough to take one of Patsy's pictures off the table and sign it to us. It was sooo sweet! I'll have you know that it's been matted and framed and looks great on my wall! Also, I met Logan Wells, one of the singers for the event, and well I thought, yeah, let's see what she got, hmmm, well I must say I was quite surprised! This gal had more of Patsy in her than I thought was ever possible. She definately learned alot from Patsy, I'm sure most of us that heard her will agree. This lady that was there at the dance even said when she was being introduced to Charlie, he stopped talking and turned his head around when Logan was singing and said "oh I'm sorry, I thought for a moment, that was Patsy". Wow! What a compliment to Logan! She may not know, but way to go! It was a very enjoyable time meeting all the nice folks out there that come to enjoy the love of Patsy and her music. I hope I will get to go again next year, if I still live as close. I encourage any of you who did not get to go, to try and make plans now to go next year, I would love to meet you all! Well, I better go. If anyone wants to e-mail me, feel free! I've got leaving on my mind!

SOW: I was listening to this one Wednesday night, and was thinking to myself "What kind of woman would put herself in that situation? To be there for a man even if all he wanted was to laugh at her?" Geesh! Still, it's a beautiful song, full of sorrow and pain, and a fabulous performance by Patsy Cline. As for the question about "Sweet Dreams", if you read Jessica's lips in the ironing scene, she's saying Rock Hudson while her voice says Kirk Douglas. It was changed because the movie came out at about the same time Rock Hudson disclosed he was HIV+ and had AIDS. The producers didn't think using Rock Hudson's name would work any longer in that phrase. So, they rushed Jessica into a recording booth to overdub the name. The kids in my English class during my Junior year of High School saw the movie when it came out on video and commented on the difference. The book "Sweet Dreams" that came out in conjunction with the movie had Rock Hudson's name in it. The book was based on Robert Getchell's script and was co-authored by George Vecsey (who co-wrote "Coal Miner's Daughter" with Loretta Lynn) and Lenore Fleischer. I still have that book. While we're at it, here's some more trivia: In "Sweet Dreams" there is a scene where Patsy is singing "Blue Christmas" from the top of the concession stand at a drive-in movie, and gets booed. Since Patsy never recorded "Blue Christmas", did you ever wonder whose recording they used? It was Jamey Ryan Dick, Charlie's second wife and Chip's mother. Also, there was a made-for-HBO movie called "Baja Oklahoma" that featured the character of Patsy Cline. The movie starred Lesley Anne Warren, Peter Coyote and Julia Roberts, with a cameo by Willie Nelson. Near the end of the movie there is a scene where Lesley and Peter drive out the site of an old ballroom and reminisce about the greats who played there, among them Patsy and Bob Wills. "Faded Love" comes on the radio, they get out to dance and the scene fades back in time to the hey-day of the ballroom. Patsy Cline is on stage singing "Faded Love", and is backed by Bob Wills & The Texas Playboys. Patsy is played by Alice Krige (who has appeared in "Sleepwalkers" and "Star Trek: Voyager" among others) and Bob is played by Johnny Gimble. For some reason, the producers didn't use Patsy's recording of the song. However, if you listen closely, it sounds like Beverly D'Angelo. I have this one on tape.

Comment: I have "Baja Oklahoma" on video also! It's a good movie! /Per
I feel the the Song of the Week - "When You Need a Laugh" should have been a great hit for Patsy, just as big as "Crazy" or "Pieces". Of course it's fabulous, as is everything of her's, but it's way more than just an album filler in my opinion. I bet that if it had been released during Patsy's life time, where she could of promoted it, it would of been another number one for her.

I have to tell y'all, if you enjoy Patsy's smooth pop sound, as I do, may I suggest Carly Simon's latest CD, "Film Noir". It is chock full of Patsy songs, immensely enjoyable. I hear Patsy in every number. It is Carly's best work to date, in my opinion. But enough about other girl singers! We only care about THE Girl Singer! And it's SOWtime! 9-5-62, "When You Need a Laugh". The first time I heard this, I thought it was a bit goofy, but it has grown on me. I always enjoy how she sings "la-haff" and sounds on the verge of tears throughout. She really makes it believable! Quick question: I was watching "Sweet Dreams" and when Jessica is ironing Ed's uniform, he asks her what she is doing. She replies, "Havin' a glass of champagne with Kirk Douglas". But Jessica's mouth does *not* say Kirk Douglas. It's always bothered me.

Hey Patsy Fans: Have you checked out the updated MCA Nashville web site? They have more info about Patsy than its previous incarnation did, even though some of the details aren't correct (you would think a record company would know more about its own history). Click on my name for a link to the page. Also, have you heard what Gaylord Entertainment is going to do to Opryland? It closes for good on Jan 1. They're going to turn the place into a shopping mall called Opry Mills, the first phase will open in the year 2000. It will still have the Opry House, live music shows and some rides, but it will not be the park we have come to know and love. When the project is completed in the year 2005, it will only emcompass 40 acres compared to the current 65. The end of an era.

Me again. I was listening to CD#1 and I'm amazed that the very first song demonstrates something very telling. Here Patsy has come to do a job, to sing a song, and the guys are making THOSE comments before she even begins. She has come to perform a song, NOT a striptease, and NOT to act as eye candy for the gents! I wish I could see the look on her face at that moment. It's one thing to be complimented in private, but to be ogled at in front of a radio audience is insulting. No wonder Patsy so often said, "They make me feel like a whore!" She was really up against it in those days, folks, lemme tell ya! In 1997 America, we call it sexual harassment. My $0.02.
Homesick Texan, - Saturday, November 01, 1997 at 19:18:53 (MET)
What can I say about "She's Got You" that I haven't said already. It was the very first song I ever heard The Cline sing. It was the song that made me a fan forever. Knowing what she was going through when she recorded this SOW, only makes it more special to me. Thank you Patsy!

Lisa - SOW, one of my all-time favorites. After "Sweet Dreams", "She's Got You" is probably my favorite Patsy song. The emotion she puts into this masterpiece is just outstanding. There isn't much more I can say about it. Lisa, you seem to have more fun than a person should be allowed! :o) Happy Halloween!

Hey, for my annual Halloween front porch production tonight, I'm gonna be a "cowghoul" with lots of exciting lights & effects. It'll be really campy with music such as "Cowboy's Sweetheart", "Ghost Riders in the Sky", "Happy Trails", "Back in the Saddle Again", and of course, "Walking After Midnight", the '56 version. Outlandish! Y'all know by now that SOW is chosen randomly by the Swingin' Songs Database, it cannot be chosen by anyone but God Almighty! I think you'll like what has been selected, though: 12-17-61, "She's Got You". This is a heartbreaker! It took hours to record because PC found it difficult to sing it without sobbing. The next day, after a draining year, she allegedly was diagnosed as suffering from "exhaustion" and finally got a long-needed rest. This song is a masterpiece, the mournful Jordanaires, the teardrops of the piano, topped off by what truly makes this song a gem: Herself. I love the way the bridge is so driven, and there's even a wonderful (what I call) "Patsy Hesitation" in it: "or, uh, has it got me?" It is one of the loneliest songs in the world.
Homesick Texan, - Friday, October 31, 1997 at 19:03:10 (MET)
Hey Sue, I definitely agree with you. "Walkin' After Midnight" would be a super song for Halloween. I love that song and do it in a Medley, of "Sweet Dreams", "Walkin' After Midnight" and "Crazy". I have a great time doing that at home on my Karaoke Machine and also in various Variety Shows that I've been in. However, "WALKIN' AFTER MIDNIGHT" IS A GREAT HALLOWEEN SONG!! However, it would have to be done in a eary scary way and not the way the great PATSY did it. Kind of change it around a little. We lost one great artist when we lost her. "LORI" (:-)-
Contord, NH USA - Friday, October 31, 1997 at 06:21:40 (MET)
I agree with Sue. In honor of halloween, "Walkin' after Midnight" would be a good pick for SOW. It is nice to see everything nice and calm again. Later.

Hi! Yes, I do like the "Triangle" song. Things are quiet here now. My Indonesian roommate bought me a Patsy Cline CD and now I don't have to go through these severe withdrawal attacks any longer. The world can now function as normal. :-) I was fortunate to see Merle Haggard in concert, and I was thrilled to see someone that has been a musical hero to me all my life. I don't think I've ever hooped and hollered so much in my life. Guess I'll close this before I ramble. Love ya, Wade

Good afternoon, Patsy fans. Janice here. I know it's been a while. Someone asked what my favorite Patsy tune is. I can't really say. I have so many favorites. One I sing at Karoke quite often is "Leavin' on your mind". Yes, I sing. I grew up listening to Patsy and Tammy Wynette. I was the typical music nerd in my class. As Lori Morgan says "I was country when country wasn't cool". But thats another story. Anyway, thank you for the kind welcome to your part of the world. It's great. Well, I must run. Will sign in again soon. Chow for now. Janice

Hi all you Hosses, I have been having trouble with my server and sending mail. I sent in a Wishlist that didn't get through but maybe I'll try again later. But in working on my list I was reminded of two Joni James songs that Patsy would have taken to the outer limits. The songs are "Have You Heard" and "Why Don't You Believe Me". Just think about Patsy's voice singing these two. I swear. Dick Malchow

Hey Guys! Just got back from my car show, and was checking in on the forum. SOW: When I got the "Story" album for my B-Day in Sept. '81, "Triangle" was one of my "new" Patsy Cline songs. So, I listened to it over and over and it became one of my favorites from the album. To me, as an 11 yr. old, it was funny. I still chuckle sometimes when I hear the title. I started singing the phrase "Tra Le La La Triangle" around the house, and my Mom asked "What on earth are you singing?" I played her the song, and even she laughed.

SOW I love it, esp that triangle. I gave one of my best friend "The Story" cd for her 8th b-day recently and she loves it. She refers to it as the triangel song! Maybe she'll work that into her stage show sometime. Have you all heard about some new videos - "Country Family Reunion". Well it is 4 different videos were the legends and GOO members sat down for 2 days and told stories. I called and somehow Patsy is mentioned or featured. The tapes are- $80.00 for the set and a free Golden Memories tape. Call -1-800-603-1400. Hint hint-- this is what I want for Christmas. Hope Santa is reading. You might find more info at Always, Jimmy 10-26-97. Ps. I saw Lorrie Morgan yesterday and she remembered me by face. Her book is great. Had to throw that in.

Hi there everybody! I haven't signed in in a few months but I am still reading all the comments that everybody has been giving. Thanks Per for adding a little control over the book as some of the comments I was reading were a little rude in my opinion. What I am looking for is complete video of Patsy performing on the various television shows that she did. I have seen several clips in the videos that are out but I would love to see her sing the entire songs. Does anyone out there know where I could track down anything like this? Julie, so nice to see you in here as well- would you know anything about this? Still, in my opinion, Patsy is the greatest female singer that ever lived and I think it is super that so many others feel the same way. If anyone has any info for me, please e-mail me. Thanks again to all!!!

Cath, happy birthday! Oh dear, you're a Scorpio like me -- it all makes sense to me now! I agree with your "smirk" comment about "Triangle", very well put. I can't wait until you get Per that book, it is my fav! We all know that poor Per has nothing to do all day, so it's nice that you can supply him with some activity.

Hi!!! I haven't been to this guestbook to sign for so long I thought I had to sign in very quickly tonight. I have SO much work to do from Uni it's almost untrue!! Lisa! If your and Patsy's 30th b'day celebrations were anything like my 26th that we had on Wednesday night (for Thursday) they were damn good. It's Saturday now and I'm still not quite right. We just had my son's 2nd B'day party and I couldn't even look at the wine. I know 26 isn't one of the special ages, but all of my friends are students like myself and we don't usually NEED an excuse!!! Anyway, back to PC. I like the song of the week as it shows how well Patsy could sing tongue in cheek... there's a hint of a smirk in her voice that's just irresistible. I'm so glad that the site has calmed down again... I've missed it!!! And Per, I'll get you that book, just bear with me while I sort out my work... I'll get there and it's worth reading!!!! Talk to "y'all" soon, Cath

Well, "Tra-le-la-le-la Triangle, my life's in su-UCH a tangle". I think this SOW is another fun one. It reminds me of a song I might have skipped to as a child. As a matter of fact, maybe I did skip to it. Although it's not in my top 20, I only smile whenever I hear it. Anything that makes me smile is okay in my book.

Song of the Week - A Fun One! and one of the few "fast tempo" songs Patsy recorded late in her career. Maybe not on the list of my ten favorite songs by Patsy, but certainly not near the bottom of the list either. Another winner, Lisa, as "Always", Guy

I had a dream last night that (you thought I was gonna say "I held you", right?) today's SOW would be the triangle song. Imagine my utter surprise to see the Kewl Kat Song of the Week Database pop up with "Tra Le La Le La Triangle", 09-10-62! A sign from above, perhaps? ;-) While I think it is a frabjous, frumious song (I'm a fan of Lewis Carroll), I have found myself humming this song long after it finishes. It's catchy! My favorite part is the teensy violins that come in after "couldn't bear for him to see". That always makes me smile. I also like the occasional organ peeps. And, of course, the glorious BANG of the triangle! I'd like to go back in time & play the triangle in this session! The Queen of Music doesn't really sound like herself in this song, in my opinion. But she's still trying to recover from her 30th b'day party 2 days before! If it was anything like MY 30th b'day party...! Bottom line: I heavily disliked this song when I first heard it. Now I'm always very amused by it, so I no longer skip it! It just occurred to me that the 3 songs sung in that session have all been SOWs! Also, I just noticed that a gal named Millie sang background vocals in this session -- why? I prefer PC to do her OWN background vocals, thank you very much! Have y'all considered the possibility that maybe PC herself was amused by this song?
Homesick Texan, - Friday, October 24, 1997 at 17:04:54 (MET)
Hi to all! Thought I'd add an entry since I haven't done so in a while. I like the last song of the week that was mentioned. I was asked to play piano and sing for a nursing home, and I think that that is one of the songs that I will perform. My SOW is "Have you Ever Been Lonely". I love the way she swings the ending and the way the song just rocks along. That song makes me forget my blues any day! I'll see you all later. Bye!

There may also be another box set of Jim this time it will be transcriptions and radio shows. This will be by Bear Rec. No definites here. Hope to see it. Always, Jimmy 10-22-97

Hi Friends of Patsy. There has been some speculation lately of how Patsy would do singing other hits. There is one beautiful song that I would really like to hear her sing and I think she would just take it to a new level. The song is "The Way We Were". I have been trying to think of the song that Patsy sings that best parallels "The Way We Were" but can't really decide - If anyone has an opinion - put it in the Guestbook. Thanks to Lisa for all help she's given me. Sweet Dreams - Dick Malchow

I love ALL of Patsy's songs... it's so hard to pick an absolute favorite... I was listening to a tape of her's on the way down to amish country the other day... and when "I fall to Pieces" came on... it gave me chills! I just think she did such a knock-out job on that song... the rich, smooth tone of her voice... She sang it so perfectly... wow! It really showcased her wonderful style and vocals... what a difference in the style of the arrangement from the early stuff she recorded. Of course, "Crazy" is absolutely wonderful too! My other "favorite" that sticks out in mind, and as a performer, one that I love to include in my shows is "Imagine That". She sang that song with such feeling and emotion... you can almost hear the "I've had enough!" tone in her voice when she sings "you've put me through.." and "I've stood more, more than I should stand" and I love the way she sings, "Can you belieeeeeeeeeeeeeve... I've swallowed my pride, Well yes... (and then you can hear her little smack with her lips/teeth) yes, I guess you can..... I LOVE IT! and then it's like she's actually talking when she says " just don't matter...what you might do..." that "" part just breaks your heart...she's really hurtin'...what can I say the MASTER at work... What a gal..what a singer....what a legend! PATSY...YOU ARE THE BEST! AND WE LOVE YOU!

Yes, I agree that the SOW, "Life's Railway To Heaven" is a mournful one. Patsy's voice is as clear as always and I feel she believes every word she's singing. Although I've had limited exposure to Spirituals, I feel Patsy did a wonderful job on this one.

Hi Lisa & friends - I agree on the song of the week, sad because of Patsy's state of mind at that particular session. We all get very frustrated at times, and our gal was no different in that respect. The song itself though is one of my favorites. Thank you Wade for the information you sent me via e-mail today, and thanks Sue for leaving a comment at the Virtual Memorial Garden site. I know that others have visited there, but have not yet "signed in" because they're working on something special to write. And thank you again, Per, for all you do for the true Patsy Cline fans everywhere, for your kindness, and your inspiration to all of us. Thanks also to Julie and Charlie for visiting with us once in a while and making yourselves available to us via this forum or by mail. Most of all, thanks to you Patsy, for the beautiful music and the wonderful legacy you've left us. Your life, your music, your story, mean so much to so many of us, and our love for you is passed down to the younger generations each day, so that memory of you will truly live forever, as it should. Always, Guy

For those of you who may be interested, the Song of the Week database has selected "Life's Railway to Heaven", July 3, 1959. This is a sad one, knowing how sad Patsy was at that particular session. Her own father used to sing this one at Hensley family musical events. I have no strong opinion about it, perhaps some of you do.

I think "Always" is one of my favorite songs. When my wife and I were looking for songs to play for our wedding music "Always" came up and we decided to come in to it. We got married at a skating rink on skates. It worked out so well because it is so smooth and flowing. I was in a Grey Tux and my wife was in a white gown. Now when we hear "Always" it takes us back to our wedding day, with wonderful memories.

Dear Patsy Fans: Good morning/afternoon/evening whatever the case may be. My name is Janice and I am a HUGE Patsy Cline fan and have been for as long as I can remember. In my opinion no one is/was/ or will ever be as great as Patsy was. In my opinion her death was a phenomenal loss. Yes there are alot of good singers out there but none come close to Patsy. But that is just my opinion. I have read a great deal of the entries in the guest book and was thrilled to know there are others who love her the way I do. I hope to get to know some of you and maybe make some new friends. Well, chow for now. I will try to log on again soon. Your new friend Janice

I think Patsy would have been wonderful on those songs Wade, particularly on "Only You". In an effort to condense my "Request List" of a few months ago, "Only You" was one of the many songs I left off the list.

This site is a great reference tool, heck it's better than the library! SOW - "Today Tomorrow and Forever". I love this song... it really fit the rock'n'roll movement that was going on then. I think she would have sounded great singing "Only You", "Twilight Time" and "The Great Pretender". Tell me what you think. Tell me if that idea is outrageous or if you agree with me. Catch yall later!

Hello, again... and glad to see everything running smoothly. I just wanted to try out the new password system and say hello. Jim Walker, you asked about the scrapbook. I was trying to decide a way to preserve the book and at the same time, it was falling apart everytime I touched it. I have a friend that is a "Creative Memories" consultant, and I purchased the book through her. It is a 12x15 album, and it is archival quality. The company is 10 years old and the albums are hand made. There are many wonderful reasons why I chose this kind of album, and yes, the plastic page protectors are wonderful. I am working on several family books at the present and hope to finish a book for each of my children. Scrapbooking is a favorite hobby of mine and I never have enough time to spend on the books. The "scrapbook" was a project that I went straight through, though. It took a couple of days, and I removed each page and moved it to the new book, and placed it exactly in the same arrangement as the original. I even included a couple of original pages from the original book to show the condition of the book and explain why it was changed. At least it is possible to view it now without having it deteriorate further. I will try to get you some information, if you like. It is a wonderful product. Well, I have to go pick up the kids at school now, so I have to run. Again, great to see everyone back. Hello to all the "squirrels" I know and love in Canada. (You know who you are! Hi Grannie Annie and gang!) Always, Julie

Hi everyone, haven't been on for a while, but just noticed the letters about Wal Mart playing Patsy's songs in the background. Guess I'll have to take a little trip up to our Wal Mart and check it out. Of course, once I'm in there I'll probably never leave (ha ha); Ours isn't open all night, but maybe they'll be playing some during the day. "Hi Lisa".

Here is a thought for you guys to consider. How do you think Patsy would sound siging "Take me in Your Arms and Hold Me" and "Turn the World Around"? Those are two of my favorite Eddy Arnold songs, and for the past week, that has been on my mind about how she would sound singing those songs. Get back with me and tell me what you think. Wade

Now that I finally have a chance to sign here, I will submit my SOW, and it is "Try Again" recorded April 24, 1957. This is another song that proves the point that Patsy was compatible with any material she was presented. This one has a nice jazz feel to it. Just sit back and listen and enjoy--time well-spent. I will be a fan today, tomorrow and forever. Wade Settle

Wow, this week one of my personal favorites came up. Great job Lisa! I really love Patsy's "Honky Tonk Merry-Go-Round". It is a personal feel-good song of mine and I listen to it at least once a day, often singing along. Whenever I need a quick pick-me-up I just put on the CD and in seconds I'm smiling.

Hi everyone. Lisa, way to go Hoss - your random SOW generator always comes up with a winner! (but then, how could it not? :-) As for a Cline-Anon for the spouses of Patsy's fans, sounds like a good idea, but probably not necessary. You keep playing Patsy's music over and over and over day after day after day, in the car, at home, etc. and eventually your spouse WILL become a fan. I know my wife did. Heck, she now knows all the words to all the songs, and she sings along (maybe just to annoy me, cause she can't carry a tune in a bushel-basket :) - I've proselytized my family so much that my twenty-something sons, and my 23 year old daughter are fans now also. I've still got some work to do on the fifteen and sixteen year old boys, though, but I truly believe that "Someday" they too will come around. So, just keep the faith - we can't rest till EVERYONE is a Patsy fan! Always, Guy

I'd just like to say that I'm here with open arms to ANY & ALL people who prove to me OVER TIME that they mean business when it comes to Patsy. They'll have to show me: that they are knowledgeable about PC & her music; that they care deeply about her as a person; and that they care about honoring her memory. They'll have to EARN my trust. I defy anyone to call me an "elitist" simply because I'm very protective of Patsy's memory. After all Patsy has done for me, it's the least I can do! Saturday is my anniversary of Patsy fandom, and my life has changed since. Per, thank you for allowing me to carry out my personal tribute to PC each week here via Song o' the Week! It happens to be Session 1, 6-1-55, "Honky Tonk Merry-Go-Round!" I'm so excited, I love this one! All ya have to do is hear the fiddle to get excited! How many of you have the version with the session sounds? Patsy's coughing & sniffling, getting all cleared out so that those vowels will be clear as a bell (and they are)! PS My husband thinks that spouses of Cline fans should form a support group called "Cline-Anon". But even he would admit that there are some PC songs he likes! Ha!

Thank you Jim for your letter on the Ryman Aud. Postage Stamp. Also for the suggestion of the Hollywood Hall Of Fame honoring Patsy with a star. We all know that had she lived, her name would definitely be there, as of a long time ago. She was wonderful and was taken from us before we could hear so many more songs that I would have loved to hear her sing - I think she would have been so wonderful singing "Wind Beneath My Wings" for one and many more.

Now, another note: Has anyone seen the Amoco Gas commercial about the guy apologizing to his car for using the wrong gas, and promises to buy only Amoco from now on? Patsy's "So Wrong" is the background music. Has anyone spotted any other "Patsy" commercials lately? Take care, everyone.

Hey gang, Wanted to remind everyone that I am asking for emails in support of the U. S. Post Office honoring the Ryman Aud. with a postage stamp. This was the home of the Opry from 1942-1975 (ca's). Patsy played this stage a many of times. Also we could use some support for the Hollywood Walk of Fame honoring Patsy with a star. My friend Mario Munez is working hard on this, so hopefully in 1998 we can go to CA! If you support both please email separate letters. Always, Jimmy 10-7-97

Hello Per, Charlie, Julie, and everyone! So glad to be back. Thanks, Per, for the new password feature which hopefully will help insure good order here on our favorite Patsy Cline site. Now all of us true, die-hard fans can once again come together to discuss the greatest female country singer ever. Here's a thought for all to consider: The 35th anniversary of the tragedy that took Patsy from us will be coming up in March, 1998, only five months away. Let's try to come up with some innovative ways to continue keeping Patsy's memory alive. And also, let's not forget the other families who lost their loved ones, and let's try to remember also Hawkshaw Hawkins and Cowboy Copas as well as Randy Hughes. Putting on our collective thinking caps, I'm sure some wonderful ideas will surface. Jimmy Walker has already given me one good idea in a private e-mail, which I'll share with you in a future posting here, as I don't want to get TOO long winded, here. Bye for now, and keep buying and playing Patsy's music and introducing her to new fans daily. Always, Guy

I am a great fan of Patsy's - do many variety shows and a lot of Patsy's songs. There is only one person who can do the songs the way she did them and she died in the crash. I do, however, enjoy doing her songs. I also agree whole- heartedly with you "Will" - this page is supposed to be dedicated to the Great Patsy Cline. She is missed by so many. What a waste for such a great star and mother to be taken away so young. Also, a "Hi" to Lisa Flood who is a fan too. "LORI" from NH.

Why is it that when people find something that they enjoy and something they can look forward to, other people just can't stand it and have to ruin it for everybody else? Is their life so void and boring that this is all they have to do? It truly is a shame. This is a wonderful sight that not only praises a wonderful person and entertainer, but brings joy to so many others. I always knew that the world was coming to this, but I always felt that this sight and Patsy were exempt from it. Where's the respect? Where's the compassion? Just remember, what comes around, goes around. Thanks again Per for everything you do. To the true fans, you do us proud and Patsy justice.

About the session that produced "It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels;" that was recorded on a radio transcription for "Town and country Time" in 1954 before Patsy did any commercial recordings.

I hope Per takes care of the problem. Until then, see ya'll. I'll be loving you, Always, Mark

If I were to line up the divas as listed by Guy Cesario and rank them accordingly singing A Capella, they would be 1) Miss Patsy Cline, 2) Miss Clooney, 3) Miss Rimes 4) Miss Page. I'm not familiar enough with Miss Grant or Miss Starr to include them.

Good Morning to Per and all... This is Julie. Just stopping by to see what's new. Boy, there is a lot of new stuff. I should stop by more often. I am going to go back over the pages and see if there are any questions I can answer. Be patient, please. I am sad to see the things that are going on. I do like to share this page with my family and friends. I don't mean to be a prud, but this isn't the kind of thing that should be going on. I hope that Per doesn't take away the guestbook, because this is one of the only ways and one of the easiest way I can be in touch with a lot of you. I would really miss it. I think some of you would, too. I did see one thing I can clear up. My Dad and I do not know of a session or recording of those last songs that were mentioned... "Bouquet of Roses", "It wasn't God who made Honky Tonk Angels", and the other one I have forgotten. Well, it's Saturday Morning and I have to go. Oh, but before I do, did anyone see "Country Rose Barbie" perform on the Opry Live TV portion on Saturday night a couple of weeks ago? The Grand Ole Opry and Mattle have made a Barbie and she is great. She is the first in a series and is available at Opry and Opryland outlets. If you haven't seen her, check it out. I think you'll like her. Always, Julie

I live way up north, and the song "Crazy" by Patsy Cline has warmed many a cold arctic night, let me tell you. Then, when I was in the states, I bought the "Coal Miner's Daughter" LP, and thought, "WOW, what a voice that Beverly D'Angelo" had while singing all the Patsy songs. I played that over and over again, and then thought that since I loved Patsy's version of "Crazy" so much, that the rest of her stuff must be fantastic. So, I bought the Greatest Hits LP. My first thought was that someone was playing a cruel hoax on me because, quite frankly, I just thought that Patsy Cline's voice was HARSH... I listened over and over, and just came to the conclusion that while I love "Crazy", I think the rest of Patsy Cline's music is mediocre, at best. Does anyone know where I can find a Beverly D'Angelo fan page?

Hey Folks, Lisa, SOW, Oh yeah baby there you go. It's a tune I've cried myself. I think we all have. You souldn't have picked a better week for that song, because when you think about the title it could be applied to a recent subject in the book. As far as any of us celebrating our Patsy anniversary, I think we should have a seance to try and contact Patsy. Sometimes I pray to her, and sometimes she talks back to me in my dreams. Last night was one of those dreams that Patsy was in. Haven't figured out yet what she's trying to tell me. Anyway, I hope everyone has a great weekend. I love you all very much. Love Always, Mark

Howdy to all hard-core Patsy lovers everywhere! Did you ever stop to think that we've listened to all of these songs more than Our Gal ever got to? Hell, we know the nuances of each one better than she did! Song of the Week: 2-7-63, "You Took Him Off My Hands." Oh boy, this is a weeper. Killer emotion that pierces your heart. Owen sure knew what he was doing when he convinced PC to go *down* at the end of some songs! You think so, too? Wanted: hard-core Patsy fans who are also fans of the show "South Park" to email me! PS This month marks the anniversary of my falling in love to the bone with The Cline. How to celebrate?!

Lisa, I think Patsy would have been a wonderful grandma... my mother is absolutely obsessed with my son (as is his other grandma). I think that the relationship anyone has with their grandkids is the most pure of their life and judging by what has been said about Patsy's relationship with her kids by the people who knew them she would have been crazy about her grandchildren. I want to know from everyone... if you could go back in time and meet Patsy, what would you like to say to her? I mean without the obvious about the plane. What questions would you like to ask about her life and her feelings towards her work, the attitude of Winchester's "great and good" citizens, or anything else you can think of? 'Talk' to you soon, Cath

Hmmm, What kind of a grandma would Patsy Cline be? Interesting to think about it. I don't think that being a grandmother would change her or her personality in any way whatever. I'm sure though that she would be so proud and tickled to be a grandma (as my wife is) and would just love those kids as her own and definitely would SING to them, "Always"

Hey gang. Got back from another short trip to Nashville. Went to see "Just a Closer Walk" again. This was the best yet. Also went to see Mandy Barnett in Nashville. Me and some other fans went backstage and hung out w/ Mandy for 1/2hr. She did say she had started to work on her album and will be ready in the spring. She said Owen is great. I will agree with you all that Patsy would be a great granny. Could you imagine a lullaby by Patsy Cline. I'd said Julie has played some lp's for them occasional. By the way, Charlie is great with his grand kids. I have seen him with other kids and they just fall in love for him and him they. I know he takes his grandsons to the races in FL. He does keep them from time to time. I have been approached by a gentlemen wanting the Ryman Aud honored with a postage stamp. If you would like to email in support I will forward them onto Junior O'Quinn, Mandy has supported this what about you? Also have you sent a letter of support to have Patsy honored with star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame? Write APC or email me. Please make as separate letters. I will just print them and forward them along. You all have a great weekend and enjoy the fall colors. Always, Jimmy

My choice for the silliest song Patsy recorded would be "I Love You Honey". It's cute, bouncy and fun. I believe (not sure) it was written by a teenage boy and the song reflects it. When I first heard it I laughed, and I think Patsy probably did too. I think Patsy would have been a wonderful grandmother. She would have lavished her grandchildren with love and affection, played with them and shared her life's experience and memories with them. And of course, she would have sung to them!

To answer the question about what kind of Granny Patsy would be, I think she would be a lot like my Granny, who I lost last week unexpectedly. She would always want to feed her grandkids, want to have them around her as much as possible, she would have their pictures scattered all over the house, and she would listen to their problems and lavish them with love. Since I don't have e-mail, I will have to post here what song I would have liked Patsy to record. That would be "Beyond the Sunset", which was my Granny's favorite song.

Hey Folks, it looks as if Leonard isn't the only person capable of inciting a riot. It is totally ironic that when one person states an opinion that differs from someone else how belligerent that person becomes when they feel that their moral ground is being treaded upon. It seems that my comments upset more than just Leonard, and now you all see how upset I was when Leonard and a few others traipsed across what was essentially to me my only religious beliefs. The name of Patsy Cline to me means so much more than an entertainer. She was a beautiful person so full of life and love with overwhelming generosity towards all people. When my dear friend Lisa posed the question to us, "what type of granny do we think Patsy would be?" I answered in my true and honest opinion. Maybe it was of fensive to some, but then so have many of the more recent entries of Leonard Miller. I feel I have the same right to discuss Patsy and her life as anyone else here. To A Patsy Cline Fan (I so wish you had the courage to give your name), A Fag Hag is a woman who associates herself with gay men. If you have a problem with this type of person, so be it, I don't care. I am not asking you to like it. Thanks to Bill Cox for taking up for me. You were correct Bill that in the book by Margaret Jones, Patsy, The Life and Times of Patsy Cline, that on page 260 Loretta Lynn tells of a time when she was invited to Patsy's house to meet "A friend". The friend turned out to be a lesbian. Leonard has since contradicted Bill by pointing out that in the same book there is a story of Patsy and the Canadian Mountie. However, Leonard must have been absent the day they taught research in Journalism School because the story that he is referring to actually was taken from Ellis Nassour's book, Honky Tonk Angel, The Intimate Story of Patsy Cline. So what I see here is someone who likes to talk about knowing all the facts about Patsy Cline, but not really having the knowledge of to back them up. This Leonard is why I am so upset with your comments. You see there are fans like most of us here who have taken the time to read, discuss, and learn about Patsy Cline the person, and are still able to enjoy Patsy the singer. There is a huge difference in looking at chart success and deciding that you are a fan, and looking at the broader scope of the persons life and deciding that the reputation is worthy of more than fanatics, but is a life worth championing for. That my friends is what Patsy means to me. And this is what I understand to be the basis for this site. If I am wrong I feel certain that Per will let me know by either deleting this entry or sending me email. I am not trying to degrade anyone, nor am I attempting to invalidate anyone else's opinions. But, when I care so much about keeping the reputation solid and upstanding of someone that I never met, I don't appreciate it when someone who doesn't care about the memory of Patsy Cline takes such an indignant tone about the career achievements and doesn't see the broader scope of her life. That is why from this day forward my comments will be strictly on the subject of Patsy Cline the humanitarian, Patsy Cline the singer, and Patsy Cline the goddess that I pray to. As far as I am concerned you don't have to like my opinions nor the truth I dare shed light on. I will ignore all comments made to me after this entry, assuming that Per is kind enough to let me speak my peace. I will not answer any comments made about Patsy that I feel to be negative, I will only pretend that they were never posted. I will keep the integrity of Patsy's life alive as long as I have a place like this to voice my opinion. Thanks so much for listening and I hope we can all soon get back to discussing Patsy in a positive manner. I'll be loving you, Always, Mark.

Newcomers to this guestbook in the past few days probably come away thinking that the regulars are against anything negative about Patsy Cline. That's not true. When facts and opinions are presented in their proper context, I have no problem. But, when opinions are presented as facts and facts presented as opinions, that's a different story. As Lisa said, art is subjective. We all have our likes and dislikes whether it be paintings, books, movies or music. Sometimes we are passionate about these things, and sometimes we are ambivalent. We have seen both displayed here this week. Now, as for what kind of grandmother would Patsy have been. I believe that she would have been a loving, doting, wonderful grandmother given the testimony of Patsy's friends about her love and devotion for Julie and Randy. At the same time, Patsy wouldn't take any garbage from her grandkids either. I imagine she would be the same as my mother would have been had she lived to see my niece and nephew: beside herself when they were born, showering them with love and affection, teach them new and exciting things, pass on the knowledge of a lifetime. The kind of grandmother we'd all like to have.

Excuse my poor English. But there is speech you can say is free and you must grant Mr. Leonard his right. I have opinions too. For example I can say that Patsy is queen to me too, but I prefer England Dan and John Ford Coley! Call me crazy but that is my way. And I can say it here, because my opinion be that. So if Mr. Leonard wishes to feel what he states let him type like a loony-goony because the world is free. My personal piece of favorite Patsy is "I Fall To Pieces", although Greg Kihn Band remade that with much more style back in 1983. I think that we do all must get along and not be to attack Mr. Leonard personally for just blasting out an opinion. He entitled to that much and me as well. By the way have any fans there like any other music than Patsy Cline? I wonder if she sang in shower. Thank you from Denmark. Love to all, Douglasz

Hi Patsy fans and friends - Suppose you could line up Patsy, Leann Rimes, Patti Page, Rosemary Clooney, Kay Starr, Gogi Grant and a few other "divas" and have them sing "A Capella" (that is, for those who aren't familiar with the term - without musical accompaniement). No music, no microphone, no studio wizardry, just plain from the heart singing. Who do you think would have perfect pitch, perfect phrasing on ANY song? - Who do you think would be the BEST of the lot? I'll give you three guesses who my choice would be (and the first two don't count!) Always, Guy

I was reading some of the other entried and was inspired to write. Patsy is such an inspiration to me and I will say that she is one of my number one heroes. People can say what they want to about her and things she might have done and said, but when you get down to it all she was one of the greatest human beings that ever lived. Are there any computer video clips out there somewhere? I think that would be terrific. I still haven't joined the fan club yet, but when the next paycheck gets here, you can bet your boots that a porion of that will go to becoming a member. Well, I've strained your eyes long enough with all of this rambling. Feel free to e-mail, I will be tickled to respond. Until further notice, Wade Settle

Rosemary Clooney? She was in obvlibion until her nephew started to make his mark on Hommeywood. Patti Page? All two of her hits are ignored except for 50's pop radio. Kaye Starr... who? Hey, I agree, Patsy has some songs which absolutly stunk, namely "I love you, honey". But as her overall career, it far outshines all aforementioned singers. She wan't no angel, but she sure tried. She gave all to her fans and it is reported she made a special effort to befriend and care for her gay following. Patsy was a flesh and blood human being like the rest of us and she never once tried to come off as being better than thou. I can spot a phony a mile away and Patsy sure wasn't a phony. It tells in her music. I hate when religeous people say she isn't worthy of admiration because of her vocabulary or some of the things she did in her personal life. But to take that in perspective, look what her male comtemporaries were doing and what the "heroes" of today are doing and you will see she was very much tame. The last time I tried walking on water I got a snoot full of h2o! Look at the overall picture. Overrated, I don' think so. One more thing, under orders from the Texan, I suggest a new category: What type of Granny would Patsy be? And for my recording session, I would choose the last one, with all her emotional heart rendering classics! The girl from Da Reejon in Redneck Land, Indiana, Sue

Although I disgreed with the foul language that Patsy Cline uses (according to the book by Ellis Nassour) nor do I condone the lifestyle that she may have lead, I do love her music. I sure wish that she would have sang more Gospel songs though. Barbara Mandrell required that at least one Gospel song was sung on every one of her TV shows. Barbara is what I call a God-fearing woman with class. Patsy had a pretty voice.

Cath, that was very well said, in my opinion! I was wondering: why is it that a singer attracts a legion of fans in the 1st place? Art is a subjective thing, I don't believe that there can *be* such a thing as "the truth" about it. There are many singers today that I find horrifying, yet they have their fans. Those fans find comfort & joy in the very people whose singing makes me cringe. Janis Joplin's voice makes me cringe, but there have been times in my life when I've slapped on one of her CDs because her wailing expresses my soul at that particular moment. Who can explain this phenomenon? In my opinion, we shouldn't question it, just enjoy it, and not scold those whose tastes do not agree with ours. It doesn't bother me a bit if someone says that Patsy was the worst singer who ever trod this weary planet. I just disagree, that's all. Since it is art, you can't say that one of us is right & one of us is wrong. I love what I love, you love what you love. Why fight about it? :-)

And another thing... did you know Patsy better than *anyone*, Len, because your 2 entries on the 28th both contain assurances from yourself that she would wholeheartedly agree with you!!! How do you know that? Wish we all knew exactly what she would think of anything... we'd be in 7th heaven.......on a much more worthy note than having to EXPLAIN why PC is the greatest, I'll have to cheat a little with my choice of sessions. The 'recording' I would most like to be at is the Arthur Godfrey show when she won. Give me half a chance and I'd be in the TV studio screaming until I got kicked out, then I'd scream some more. I bet it would be a kick to see her face when she won!!! I can't get my hands on my Patsy discography right now as it is in my son's room and he's asleep, so I don't know the date, but I'd like to be in on the "Sweet Dreams" session. That song gives me the shivers every time I hear it. My brother has a great sound system with 4 foot high speakers (he's really into building stereos and such) and when I play Patsy on his music system it's just as if she's REALLY there. You know that feeling when the singer is just so amazing that she has sung her talent into your body and given you her gift for just a short while??? That's Patsy singing "Sweet Dreams". Tata for now, Cath

Upon the advice of my attorney, my guestbook signing has no comment at this time, apart from the following: Whenever I listen to Patsy in the car (daily) & I arrive at my destination, I always sit & make sure she finishes her song before I turn off the ignition. Lord, it's the least I can do, just let her finish the dang song out of respect! Then when I get back in the car & fire it up, there's a new one! Mark, I agree with your opinion about LeAnn. Poor gal. PS I've been so busy, I wish I had *time* to send hate email! Not that I would send it; I said I wish I had the *time* to.

Hey Folks, On the advice of Lisa Flood I am choosing to ignore the comments of a pseudo fan that shall remain nameless. Here's a new topic, I heard on "Access Hollywood" today that LeAnn Rimes parents have announced their separation. Now maybe LeAnn is starting to get some of that heartache in her life that can only further her believability. Don't get me wrong, I am not saying this to be mean. It's just that now LeAnn will have some life experience to draw from when she sings those tear jerking tunes. I do think it's sad though because you know she most be heartbroken over it. I do wonder if this will finally get her father out of the picture and allow room for someone to produce her that knows what they are doing. Hey, Owen Bradley, here's your chance at another comeback. I'll be loving you, Always, Mark.

The two sessions I would have liked to sit in on were the first session because I think that it would be cool to have sit in on a session that was a start to a huge legacy. The other one I would have wanted to sit in on is the session that produced "Blue Moon of KY". I also wish that someone out there would have the good taste to release some more transcription recordings with the dialogs and everything. Patsy's music will always be interesting and fresh and will live on forever. She will never be a dying fad. Her sales figures prove that. Always, Wade Settle

What a palava!! I haven't been to this site for a couple of days and look what happened. I really don't think anyone has to worry about the FACT that Patsy is the greatest ever singer. Is it Patsy's real fans' fault if someone just doesn't get it?? It isn't simply the quality of the voice, or the phrasing, or the backing music... it's all of them plus a good dose of bared soul. I feel very sorry for old Len if he can't comprehend it. Yes, he's entitled to his opinions, but if you don't want to get people's backs up, find a more diplomatic way to phrase your post. LeAnn has a good voice, no argument, but she has the advantage of much better equipment in the studio, possibly a voice coach and she has a huge amount of other singers to learn from (most of whom in turn learned from Patsy). Patsy was the first really throaty, smooth country singer to hit the big time... who did she have to learn from?? No one; SHE set the standard that the others followed. So, len, if you wanted to incite riots, well done. You did a good job of it. Just remember, when you make any comment about our Patsy you make that comment to all of her fans and we take it PERSONALLY. We don't have her on a pedestal just because of her untimely death at the height of her career it's because of th immense talent that she had which has never been matched and which will NEVER be surpassed. She is the perpetual Queen of Country (or any) Music and don't you forget it, matey... Well, that was just like reaffirming my faith at Church. Does anyone else feel the same way??? Cath

Hey Folks, What is going on? I get this frantic email from Lisa and so I came over to check it out. I can't believe that this Leonard person has the nerve to come to this site and bash the greatest singer of the 20th century. Does he not realize that it's not so much Patsy's music, or how many records she sold, or which ones were hits. Don't you realize, dear Leonard, that it was Patsy the person that we all love. Yes, as a culture we do tend to immortalize those celebrities that in my opinion had the good sense to die young. They escaped the torture that face celebrities everyday. Patsy will never be on the cover of a rag tabloid (who did you say you wrote for?) Nor will she ever face the possibility of financial mismanagement that so many stars have endured. Lest we forget Willie, and Dottie. If you are a journalist, I sincerely hope that you are not holding your breath for a Pulitzer, because you sir will be one of the few that no one would miss. Your brand of criticism has no place insulting the woman that those of us who visit this site regularly have come to know and love as a lost member of our extended family. It is with regret that we reflect that which might have been accomplished by Patsy, and for you to all but demoralize her in our presence is shameful. I am not a religious person, but the one person I look to for guidance is Patsy and her music. Patsy played an integral part in my life when I needed the most help. It was not easy realizing that I was gay. But I truly feel that if it had not been for my discovery of Patsy, I might have taken the very sad route that most gay teenagers feel is the only way out. I truely feel that Patsy saved me from that. And for you to walk on what is to me the most sacred of memories is hurtful, spiteful, and just plain mean. I do hope you will take the time to further research Patsy's life. Though lot's of things have dictated and written about her, some of them not so flattering, the attribute that is never left out is that Patsy had a heart as big as her voice. And that my friend is why we love her. I would love to continue this discussion, but I do not feel this is the best use of the space that Per has so graciously devoted to all of Patsy's fans throughout the world. Therefore, I leave you with this thought, If you ever degrade Patsy's memory on this site again I will see to it that the fan club, the members of this circle of friends, and anyone else who holds a fondness for Patsy, begins a letter writing campaign or some other form of boycott on any and all publications that you contribute to. Now roll that up in your paper and smoke it. To everyone else, I'll be loving you, Always, Mark.

Leonard, let's just say that you and I have agreed to disagree! Bill, Lisa, Guy, Mark, Wade, Sue W and the other ever lovin', LOYAL Patsy fans have just about said it all! Patsy Cline is the GREATEST Bar None! Oh... one other thing... the current recording artists do not sound nearly as good (even with all the technical miracles that take place in recording studios today) as Patsy did when she was taped live in concert on an old, inexpensive reel to reel, stuck over in a corner backstage!
