Hello all and welcome newcomers! Gail, glad to hear that you are out on the road with the show. I know a guitarfiddle player with the show and he was telling me about it. When I get a schedule I will scan and email a copy to Per to post. Just wanted to remind everyone that Jim Reeves past away today in 1964. Always, Jimmy 7-31-98

Hello fellow Patsy fans. I am writing to say that I am thoroughly impressed with this website and want to commend Per, who has done such a great job in maintaining it. I have visited on occaision, but I'm not sure that I've made an entry. Well, here goes.... I wanted to let you know that a national tour of the show "Patsy!" (the one that ran in both Branson and Toronto) is about to occur. I'm grateful also to say that I will once again be singing the role of The Cline herself. It's been about two years since we were in Toronto, and I'm anxious now to bring the Cline to life once again. The show kicks off August 19th at Sam's Town Casino in Robinsonville, MS and concludes December 10th this year at the Living Arts Centre in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada.

If any of you folks would like me to forward to you the entire schedule of the run, please email me and I'll do my best to get it to you in a timely matter. Since leaving the show after Toronto, I have been in Nashville pursuing my recording career full-time. I've recently put out a second record, a CD single that is being played on Canadian radio currently. It's very honky tonk country. The first record, produced by Harold Bradley here in Nashville, was entitled "Gail Bliss and Patsy Cline", and featured 6 Cline songs as sung by me, and 6 songs sung by Patsy herself. It was a very successful record and actually charted on the independent record charts up in Canada when we were playing Toronto. I've also been touring with my own band. We travel and are booked simply under my name. In addition to this, I have been working on the road and in the studio with the legendary fiddler, Vassar Clements, and have had the pleasure to work as talent coordinator for the Chet Atkins Musician Days held annually here in Nashville.

All in all, it's been a very busy, chaotic couple of years. I must say that I am so looking forward to being on the road once again and singing the songs of my very favorite singer. The best part of being involved in Patsy's life though, is getting to meet all her other fans. I do hope that you all will make it out to a show and come up to say hello. We can trade a few stories and maybe have a cup of coffee or two someday. I must admit, I have had a hard time keeping up with writing letters, but with the advent of computers and email, I'm doing much better. If you'd like to get a more complete schedule of the upcoming tour, or want to inquire about the 2 records I have out, give me a shout. Love, Gail Bliss

Last night I saw "Always... Patsy Cline" (playing at the University of Virginia's Heritage Repretory Theatre. It was one of the most enjoyable evenings I have ever spent, hearing the songs of the legendary Patsy Cline. It was entertaining, humorous, and filled with memories of Patsy's music.

I just discovered this site! I'm a scenic artist for the Amarillo Little Theatre. ALT first produced "Always...Patsy Cline" in January of 1997. This past weekend we just finished our 57th performance in Ruidoso, NM where tickets went for $150.00 a piece! We will be in Abilene, TX August 14 and 15; Arlington, TX August 21-23; Gainesville, TX August 28 and 29. We have also played Midland (twice) Odessa (twice) San Angelo (twice) and Austin as well as 2 return engagements in Amarillo. The shows are almost always sold out everywhere we go. We have our own groupies too! Many followers have traveled extensively to see us. Tammy Hysmith of Fitch, Texas is our "Patsy". She is incredible to watch. From the moment she hits the stage its like Patsy Cline has just walked in to give you a personal performance. The production is a must-see for Patsy Cline fans. Please e-mail me if you would like more information. Thanks again for a fantastic site!

Thanks to Bill Cox, I have now managed to obtain a copy of Patsy's first LP, "Patsy Cline" (Decca DL-8611, rel 1957)!!! Bill had noticed that a website called "All-vinyl Records" had a copy of the LP, and he tipped me about it. I ordered it as soon as I got Bill's mail, and today I got the LP! I thank you from the bottom of my heart, Bill! I now have all seven original Decca albums! The only album release that I lack is "Showcase" with the older cover. I've got the newer (red) cover.

Per has the address for the Fan Club on the main page of this site. But, here it is:

Always Patsy Cline
P.O. Box 2236
Winchester, Virginia 22604

Dues are $12 (US) per year. Members receive a membership packet with membership card and a quarterly newsletter.

As far as finding a copy of "Sweet Dreams", it is out of print. However, you can probably find one at a used video store, flea market, etc. Also, copies occasionally pop-up on the internet auction at Type "Patsy Cline" in the search field, and it will pull up all Patsy related items that are up for bid. You will have to register with eBay before you can bid. Registration is free of charge. Hope this info helps.

Haven't visited in quite a while. Could use some help from anyone who has visited the 63' crash site. Planning a trip down south in the fall, anyone know the detailed directions on where I'll be traveling to get there? Or is it well signed from what I've been reading from other fans who have visited the site? Visited Winchester in 1993, and planning on returning this fall on my way back. The towns' people were very helpful and kind to me while I was there, getting my brakes fixed!!!!! The mechanic loaned me his pickup truck to do the tour while he and another mechanic worked on my car to get me back on the road to Canada. Major craving to return again. Love this site. It's great reading.

Hey Fellow Patsy fans; I wanted to know if someone could please tell me how to become a member of the Always Patsy Cline Fan club, and if there is anyone out there that might be able to help me find a copy of the movie "Sweet dreams" that was released back in 1985, and if anyone could tell me if there is videos about the life of Patsy and where I might be able to get them, all help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Mike!!

Do any of you good Patsy Cline Fans know, what year "Sweet Dreams" the Movie starring Jessica Lange and Ed Harris was produced and which studio or movie company made it. The more I know about the film the easier it should be to find. I'm checking the swap meets and swap video stores for a copy now. Thanks for your help.

G'Day, I'm after a bit of help in tracking down a song by Patsy Cline that I have only heard a bit of but I'm pretty sure is called "Never No More". Now what I'm after, if anybody can help me, is the lyrics of the song and on what album it was released on, and if there is a place on the net where it might be possible to download it. I've looked but so far my search has been fruitless. If anybody out there can help me I'd be very grateful, pls e-mail me ( with any info that you may have. Thank you for you time and take care :)

Want to check and see what Patsy Cline albums (or those by any other artist) have been certified Gold/Platinum? Go to the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) website at They list info on every single album, single and video that has received a Gold, Platinum or Multi-Platinum certification. Also, Shane, I don't have access to a copy of Billboard Magazine, and the Billboard website ( doesn't carry the Top Country Catalog Album Chart. What positions do the three Patsy Cline albums hold?

Hello everyone!! It's been a while since I've been here, but I have been very busy, summer and all. Sad to hear there will not be a 2 hour documentary on Patsy, which was to air on TNN in the fall. But aleast there will definitally be a book out this fall, Can't wait to pick up a copy of that. Has everyone checked out the latest Billboard Magazine? Patsy is listed 3 times there. "Greatest Hits" is up 2 notches still at 8 Million units, "The Patsy Cline Story" has gone up slightly, and has reached the 1 Million mark. Keep in mind "Story" hasn't been on the charts that long either, and already is 1 Million. And finally a new CD has entered the Charts "Patsy Cline Heartaches", which has me puzzled a bit. Why? Well, because it's a cheap run of the mill type CD that has been out for many yrs. But, just goes to show that even cheap CD's sell. I'm kinda interested in seeing how this one does.

For anyone that doesn't understand how this Billboard stuff works, here goes. Country Music's top Catalog CD's is were Patsy Cline has been selling so well. This Chart action is different from the rest, which means it tells us which Country CD's are being bought in the record stores. New songs that you hear on the radio chart only as a single, not as a CD package. That explains why singles flip flop around. On the the other hand, Top Catalog CD's is where it counts for the most part. At every weeks end every Record Shop across the United States totals it's sales figures, they inturn go to a music division were they find out who's selling the most. It works something like that. At least that's what I got from it while reading the small print under the Charts in Billboard Magazine. All this just tells us that people are really being up Patsy Cline CD's regularly, every week. It is quite interesting to watch her positions go up, and down.

And also Patsy has indured longer on Country's top CD Catalogs than any other Country singer in history, and she's still going strong. Per, I think this would be a great thing to add to this Web Site, some sort of page that gives annual reviews of how well Patsy Cline is doing each week from the Billboard Charts. That way any new fans or people wanting to know how popular Patsy really is could have this information. Sincerely...
Shane C. Collins <PC..>

Hey all, Wonderful news. I was in Nasvhille over the weekend to see Mandy Barnett host the Midnight Jamboree and ran across a new book. "The Nashville Sound..." by Joli Jensen has Patsy featured on the cover and extensively throughout the book. Joli wrote a paper on Patsy which predates Ellis Nassour and other authors' books. This paper is featured in the book. It is a wonderful look at Patsy. The ISBN # is 082651314. Well, Mandy was wonderful as the host of the Midnight Jamboree singing many traditional country songs such as "Satan Sheets", "Someone I Used to Know" and "Pride". I will get Per some pictures shortly to put on his photo gallery. Some of you may have heard that Mandy will be releasing a new Sire CD. They are shooting for Sept release. Her friends tell me it is amazing! When I hear an exact date I will let you all know. Always, Jimmy 7-20-98

My friend Sue Miller needs your help. She is looking for a copy of "Sweet Dreams", the movie starring Jessica Lange and Ed Harris, about Patsy Cline's life. She has tried to purchase this video everywhere without success. It's out of print, so if any of you good people have a source for it or can make a copy for her, we would appreciate it deeply. Thank you.

PATSY CLINE CIGARETTE LIGHTER. I have a mint condition lighter just like the one belonging to Patsy that was found at the plane crash site. Hers is on display at the Country Music Hall of Fame. It has the Rebel flag motif and plays "Dixie". It is the Deluxe Beaulite musical lighter. Sold by the House of Beauregard in Nashville, probably 1950's - 60's vintage. Box, pouch and warranty. I would be interested in any appraisals, offers or relevant info. Please respond via E-MAIL only.

Frank. Bill Cox had emailed me about this. If it is Patsy and in Nashville I will try to be there. So I called Charlie about it. He said that is was discussed sometime back but he was not pleased with what they wanted to do. So there will not be a special to his knowledge. He did mention a 13 part series on TNN airing that will featured Patsy. I will try to get some info Monday from TNN. Also mentions a new book this fall. This book will not be ready until next year. The author's sons are the guys that did the 2 PC video on Hallway. I will be seeing Mandy Barnett Thurs and hope to speak to her about her upcoming cd. Let you all know what is going this weekend.

This is an impressive page! I am glad that I found it. There sure are a lot of interesting facts and pictures here. I am way too young to ever have known Patsy, but her song "Crazy" is one of my favorites. Whenever I here "Blue" by LeAnn Rimes, I think of Patsy. That song was written for her, but fate had other plans for it.

Hi people: I am a Patsy fan from many moons ago! I just love to hear her voice belt out a song! When Patsy Cline sang a song you know it was sung!!! I have most of her albums and am now trying to collect the CDs. How nice it is to see there are people who really enjoy good music instead of this "rock garbage". Patsy will be missed always and it was so sad she went to be with the Lord so soon. What a talent she had and could have had a long and rewarding life in music.

I was just browsing the Patsy Cline page at, and came across some info on a book to be published in August called "Sweet Dreams: The Real Patsy Cline". What follows is the synopsis on the book from the site:

Published to coincide with the release of a new two-hour documentary film of Cline's life to air on TNN this fall, "Sweet Dreams" features never-before-published family photos and letters, plus extensive interviews with Patsy's friends and colleagues.

Does anyone know more information on the book and TV special? If so, please post it here.

Per, congradulations on 2 yrs for the best Patsy Cline site in the world!! And I mean that!! It's also great to hear that will be a new release CD on Patsy. As everyone knows by now, I'm hot on new releases. It would be great to hear new material if that's what this is. We will just have to wait and see!! Also I have come across some info from my mother regarding Patsy. She has informed me that Patsy came to my hometown here in Williamsport, PA around 1962. Her then boyfriend bought tickets, but my mother wasn't able to go. So her boyfriend did. He later told her that he snapped a photo of Patsy, and got her to sign a piece of paper for him. As of now, I haven't been able to track him down, but I will continue to do so. My mother is certain he still has the photo, along with the signature. She said he was a big fan, and that her performance that night had him talkin' for days. He also told my mother Patsy was wearing a black fir coat, and white high heels. I heard something about trhis concert when I was younger, but didn't catch on to it. One thing I might do is call the theatre were she performed, and see what info they might be able to give me. I'll try my best.. Sincerley..

Hello everyone!! Been reading the postings here, and have several things to say. First off, Per, I agree with you, this is your site, and your creation. The Titanic banners in no way should offend anyone, besides it was an awesome movie to which I saw 2 times. No one person, whether they like Patsy Cline or not, have no right telling you, and everyone else they really don't fit with the site. O well, can't win em all. I hope no one takes this the wrong way, espically the Patsy fans. Take 2, Frank, I agree with you for the most part, a town should never take advantage of $$$$, and someone famous. And espically do it years after the fact she was famous, then tragically died. Winchester should be ashamed, but for the most part I think there are still many who live there, that have always cared about the memory of Patsy. Has everyone checked the totals for sales of "The Patsy Cline Story", now up to 1 million. And also "Greatest Hits" has been slowly climbing back toured the number #1 position. Thats great to hear!! This info can be found in "Billboard Magazine", which is published every week I believe. I usually check this at my local Record Shop. Sincerley..

Bill, you got the answer to the trivia question. I was at a Lorrie Morgan fan club party and asked her about knowing Patsy and she said that her daughters babysat Julie and Randy. Beth does not remember much about it except that they lived a couple streets over from each other. Was on the phone today with the Winchester Cham. of Comm. They have hired a firm that specializes in putting musuems together professionally. When something firm comes, Amber or I will let you all know. Always, Jimmy 6-23-98

To keep off-topic, annoying, offending and misleading entries from being displayed here for all the world to see, before I have a chance to delete them, I have decided to store new entries in an "inbound queue", away from the forum, so that I can review them before they get published on the net. That is probably a good solution, but it has one disadvantage: If I go away on a trip or something, for a while, as I will be doing next week, as a matter of fact, then no new entries will be included until I get home again. But that's just the way it's gonna have to be, and I don't go away on trips very often, anyway... Normally I check the site every day. Your host:

Yesterday I posted a message questioning why there are always Titanic banners on this page. Apparently, you deleted my entry. I did not ask in a rude or nasty way --- yet you deleted my entry. Is this page for Patsy fans or Titanic fans? Why are you deleting entries that offend no one?

Comment: First of all, I have said before on this page that comments about this should be kept in e-mail. Second of all, your entry offended me, because I am the one who puts the Titanic banners here, because I want them here. Besides, your previous entry, as well as this one, was off-topic. Maybe you feel that the Titanic banners are off-topic too, but as webmaster and creator of this site, I have a right to be off-topic! :-) /Per
Trivia Question: The father is the great George Morgan ("Candy Kisses" is one of my all time favorites), and the sister is Lorrie Morgan. I knew Jimmy would connect Lorrie to Patsy somehow, someday.

Hey all, glad to see Patsy is getting her star on the walk of fame! So many people here wrote letters to support this. Mario Nunez deserves a big thank you for his hard work. Saw Charlie in Nashville and he told me the great news. Thanks to Bill Cox for informing everyone! OK, I have a really cool triva question--I recently met one of Julie and Randy's baby sitters. As it would turn out, her father is a country singer and so is her sister who recently won an award at the MCN's. Can you name the either singer? "WATCH" here for the answer and maybe we can get a sweet treat for the winner. Also some Ernest Tubb news: David McCormick is moving the bronze statue of ET outside of the Music Valley rec. shop soon. This will be set up like Mr. Ryman statue at the Ryman Aud. Always, Jimmy

Per, this is the best Patsy site on the internet. Now I have to say... I have been a Patsy fan way before Patsy was "cool".... I made a pilgramage to Winchester, VA in 1980.... Now in 1980, Sweet Dreams The Movie had not yet been released... Patsy Cline music was no longer a "commercial success"... I went to Winchester and was SHOCKED... Now where in this sleepy town did they make mention of the fact that Patsy Cline even lived there! I went to the Chamber of Commerce... asked about Patsy Cline. The woman told me (in 1980) "She lived here but she was a Nashville girl, yes sir"...... I was mortified! I went to South Kent Street and said hello to Patsy's Mom... She was very friendly.... FINALLY went to the library in Winchester... Asked if they had a "Patsy Cline Exhibit"... the librarian coldly said to me, "Here's a box of her stuff"...she gave me a shoe box with a few letters and pictures (many of which now appear on this site)..... I went to several other "main haunts" in Winchester and was appalled at how many people (including the chamber of commerce) acted as if Patsy never really lived there! NOW, years later, ONLY because she means $$$$ to the town of Winchester do they acknowledge her existence.....Now, only becuase of $$$$ is there a Patsy Cline Highway, or Patsy Cline anything...I am telling you the truth, that before this movie came out, the town of Winchester, Virginia SPIT on Patsy's memory! And she would be the first one to agree with me on this.....NOW, ONLY because there is $$$$ do they acknowledge her. The Dick Family has been attempting to get Patsy acknowledged in Winchester for YEARS...when I went there in 1980, the ONLY thing that had Patsy's name on it was a plaque at the cemetary dedicated and PAID FOR by Charlie Dick and family...nothing else....I remain subsued because I want to be sure you post this, Per.....Winchester, VA ANGERS me....they treated Patsy like trash when she was alive, tried to forget her in death, and NOW...only now (because they see $$$$$) they try to cash in on her in death. This angers me so. The town of Wincehster should be ashamed.

I hope to work closely with them and make this the finest Patsy tribute! If you know of ways to do so, please e-mail me! Per, did you get the pics I sent ya? I need them back because they are my only copies. Hmmm...oh yes, I had one more question. Does anyone know how much the sheet music for "Walkin' After Midnight" is worth?

Hello! I finally bought "Birth of a star" and "Patsy Cline collection" (Laserlight). Now I have all of Patsy's songs that she recorded on record and cd. Now to get the live versions and radio performances! Never thought it would be so spendy. We sure have some great Patsy Cline web-sites out there don't we! It's amazing! To think that after 35 years she is still one of the top female vocalists. Would things be different? Would she be as popular? We will never know. But we can know that she will still be here tomarrow thru song, thru memory and most of all thru LOVE. P.W.

If anyone knows where I can get a copy of Decca LP from 1964, "That's How a Heartache Begins", I would be ever so grateful. Thank yall so much. Also, if anyone knows where I could get other rare records, photos, or radio transcriptions/tv shows of Patsy Cline, please give me a holler!

I saw an advertisement on A&E and they will have a bio on Arthur Godfrey. This may be a repeat and they only briefly mention Patsy's name. Interesting story though. I am not sure what day it is on.

Hello Patsy Cline fans!! Today I'm in a good mood, why? Because yesterday I finally received "Jubilee USA" with Patsy Cline, and others. And what a video it is. The 2 clips of her singing "Lovesick Blues", and "How Can I Face Tommorrow" I have seen before many times. But the real treat was Patsy singing with Cowboy Copas on "Hogtide Over You". They really sound good together. She uses funny expressions when she is singing with him. In the beginnning of the song she runs out at the last minute. Was very exciting. Now if we could only see her on all her video clips, How about it!! Sincerley>>

Hello everyone. Just to clear things up about CC Music only allowing members to buy discounted, and going out of stock items, such as "The Discovery" CD may not be true. It just appeared to me that that was the way they operated that part of their inventory. Sorry, Sue B, for the confusion. Still haven't received my copy of Patsy performing from "Jubilee USA" from Tower Productions. I called the Postal Service here in Williamsport, PA, they told me that if it was orignally lost in the mail in April, it probally would have been located by now. Not only that but, would have been sent back to Tower Productions if VHS tape was damaged. So now I'm taking action. Will be mailing them a copy of my check they signed, and cashed. Hopefully this will do something, I'm not willing to pay for a VHS I didn't receive from Tower Productions. I think everyone else would be the same. Has anyone else had this problem with them??????

Hey all... Bernard, you really sumned things about Patsy good. You I say what many of us think! Well, Patsy had 2 fan club presidents during her lifetime. Treva Miller started a club about 1957. Of course many of us know she died in a car accident about 1961. Pearl Yoakum then took over. Pearl was a big fan of Dottie West and they had become friends. Patsy was telling Dottie about Treva and needing someone to take over. Dottie suggested Pearl and put the together. Pearl ran the fun club until Patsy's death and then started the Patsy Cline Memorial Fan Club. This was a hard time for many of the fans as well as the family and things never got off. After two or 3 newsletters she ceased this club. I must thank Pearl for being so kind to respond with the above information. She is still alive in OH and still a Patsy fan! Hope you all enjoyed this... Jimmy 5-30-98

I first heard Patsy Cline on a BBC radio program in November 1962. The song was Heartaches and it really got to me. The details of the effect it had on me then are lost in the mists of time but it was profound. Within days my collection of Patsy's recordings had begun with four or five singles on the Brunswick label and my first LP.

Then March 1963 on page two of the Daily Mail the headlines about her death. Only a few months had passed since the first time I had heard that voice and yet it seemed that a great friend was lost. Looking back over the years the reason why it felt like a lost friend has become clear.

Patsy was a friend, not one that I could speak to but one who spoke to me in song. Friends speak about the sorrows and problems they have and they share the joy of the good times. That is exactly what Patsy does in her singing. She tells the listener about the emotion behind the words of the song and the unique feature of Patsy's singing is that the emotion is true and unrestrained. Patsy sung about life as it is, good and bad times and she sung as it was for her at the time she sung.

Since 1962 Patsy has been a friend, we have shared sad times and then the good times. Patsy has been a therapist, when my mood is at a low ebb a few sad songs followed by the happier songs work wonders.

My daughters, although besotted by Boyzone are not adverse to singing along with Patsy's records when no one else is listening. One night I was driving them and two friends back from a Boyzone concert where they had been back stage. A Patsy tape was playing and soon the girls were singing along with it. Amazingly they knew the words to several songs. Great journey. Regards

I ordered second hand copies of the Everest LP "Encores" (Everest 1204) and the MCA LP "Today, tomorrow and forever" (MCA-1463) about a week ago, and I got them today! Regarding previous discussions about the stereo version of "Gotta lot of rhythm in my soul": It says that this MCA album contains both mono and stereo tracks, and the ones indicated as stereo are "Love, love, love me honey, do", "I'm blue again", "I'm moving along" and "Gotta lot of rhythm in my soul". When I listen to the first three in earphones, I can clearly hear that it is stereo, but when I listen to "Gotta lot of rhythm...", quite frankly, it sounds like mono... I cannot distinguish one channel from the other, as I clearly can in the three other songs. I don't know what to think... Either it's a bad "original stereo recording", or it's mono. I just can't say... When I look at the VU meters, the left channel is higher than the right channel, but the difference between them are about the same all the time. When I listen to the same song on the "Reflections" album from Everest, which is also claimed to be in stereo, the VU meters alternate all the time. One second the left channel is highest, and the next second the right channel is highest. So there is a difference between the albums in that respect. Your host:

What a joy it is to find this site. Since 1962 I have been enthralled by the talent and emotion that Patsy put into every one of her performances. Ten years ago I with my family stood on the stage of the Ryman. To see my daughters (aged 5 and 6) dancing on the spot where Patsy and the other greats had stood bought tears to my eyes. This is a terific site and reflects the admiration that Patsy deserves. Thanks, Per, for your efforts. And thanks to all the world wide country family for the joy the music has given me and many others over many years. Bernard

Thank you, Jimmmy, for adding CC Music's URL, I tryed to remember what it was earlier, so everyone had it to call for "The Discovery" CD. LIke I added earlier, only member's of CC Music can buy from their overstock, and going out of stock inventory. I might be wrong, but I wasn't able to find this info at there website. The only reason I stumbled over this CD was because I purchased "Take 5 with Patsy Cline" from them. That automatically registered you as a member. Dumb, but true.

And Sean, to answer your question about the video?? Which reminds me, you asked about this earlier this year, and yes I answered you. The address for the video is posted here, flip down, and you will find it. I hope this answers your question. Although I must add one very important thing. I sent for my copy in the first week of March. The check was signed, and sent back with my bank statement, this would be somewhere around the first week of April. I still yet have not received my copy. I sent them a letter 3 weeks ago, still no reply. I'm beginning to think I was forgotten. If anyone could please help in locating a number, I would certaintly, post loyally appricated it!!!! I really don't no what else to do. My next step might be to send them back a copy of this check they signed, and dated the first week of April. If I still get no reply, I will just have to forget the whole thing. I will absolutly not send them another check if they claim it was lost. Which I highly doubt. So all and all, besides being ticked, if I don't get one, I just sit, and image what a nice video it might have been.. So long for now..

I keep seeing references to the Titanic movie on this site. Is this because Patsy had an ancestor who was on the Titanic? I have heard these rumors but was not certain if that is why I keep seeing banner ads for the Titanic movie here. I had heard that Patsy's great uncle (or somethinig like that) was one of the heroes on the Titanic and he saved many lives. Has anyone else heard that? What is the true version? Even if it is true, I must say that those ads for the movie are a bit tacky on this fan site. Thank you.

I recently bought a Patsy CD called "The Live Broadcasts" from EMI/Capitol/Razor & Tie, released in 1996, thinking that it would contain some new live material that I didn't have before. Well, when I got the CD I noticed that there is absolutely no info about the recordings. Nothing. Zip. Only the song titles. And when I listen to it, the recordings sound very much like the ones on the "Birth of a star" CD... Does anyone know if it indeed is the same recordings?

Hello everyone!! Remember everyone that Collector's Choice Music has in inventory somewhere around 90 or so copies of Patsy Cline "The Discovery" CD. I can't think of the URL off hand, but I can say it's posted here somewhere in the guestbook. So you'll have to scan down to find it. Let me just say this, I received my copy of this CD a couple of days ago. It is well worth the buy. Even though it's simaliar to "The Birth of a Star", the Dialogue is different, and her dialogue is much funnier on this CD than on "Birth of a Star". And also some of the song takes are not the ones from "The Birth of a Star". I actually like the take of "Come on in" better.

Regarding MidTod: I hope that Larry will send me a copy, as he promised a while back... Regarding alternate versions of Patsy's recordings: I mentioned it on the news page quite a while ago, but since it hasn't been mentioned here in the recent entries about this, I will remind you that in the stereo version of "Crazy dreams", which is on the Decca album "That's how a heartache begins", there is no harmony vocals. So, there are three songs that exist in both harmony and non-harmony versions, and they are "Crazy dreams", "Yes, I understand" and "How can I face tomorrow?". The latter two are available on the Vocalion album (or MCA CD) "Here's Patsy Cline". Your host:

I want to get Logan's CD, I wish I had a voice like that, I would sing Patsy day and night too, it is a real blessing to be that talented and to devote your songs and time to someone really great. And I love how ya'll are staying on these record companies about Patsy recordings, I'll be rooting for you and if you need my vote you got it! And I feel the same way about hearing the live versions of takes, I wonder how it would be to be able to hear her cut up and let em have it when they need it! I bet it would be a hoot to hear it, I would pay for it and I know everyone here would too. Things like that are treasured, they are no longer here so of course everyone would like to know how she spent her recording sessions and how she handled her herself. Which I think we already have a pretty good idea, Ha! I mean Patsy was a good ole soul but if someone got in her way she laid down the law. I just wish I could talk to her now and get her opinion of the world today. Because this world is in a heap compared to how it was in her day. Just imagine what she would say about Bill Clinton, and Saddam Hussein, and all these crazies running around and kids shooting at each other in school, I just wonder what the Cline would have to say. I bet she could come up with some doozies! I would love to be a fly on the wall during that conversation I tell you. I miss her dearly even though I never met her, but you don't have to meet her to miss her because we all love her through her music and her life story and what we know about her. She is deeply missed by all. We love you, Patsy honey, and we'll meet you for sure someday.

Hello again all. Wow, I have written in here so much lately that I must be getting annoying. I think I have pretty much worn out my welcome. :-( Anyways, Bill, I wanted to ask you about one more thing: do you know of a means that I could contact the Clark Entertainment Group that you spoke of? I would like to send a comment about their holdings of the work tapes from Columbia Studio B. Well, I guess that's it for now; I will be back......someday, maybe... Always,

Howdy everybody! I turned in my project full of poems just the other day. Really wish someone could have sent me some. I was short of poems. Nice going, Shane! I'm happy you sent a letter to MCA. I'm sure there are other Patsy tracks that are being stored somewhere and no light is shed on any of them. Isn't that funny when Patsy went from Four Star to Decca and when she did she had a 1# hit! And before that she was struggling! I find that amazing that she had a hit in 1957 and no more hits. Then, all of a sudden, in 1961 she was back with a hit! If only she could have been around to see it more. Well, anyways, will get back to you all! Forever and Always, Patsy Walen

George, your comment about not having sufficent amounts of recordings of Patsy's uptempos is understandable. But in addition to her renderings of Hillbilly, I was also referring to her Nashville Sound. Only those Ballads, and faster numbers that included steel guitar are the takes that I would not include on a new Box Collection. Songs like "The Wayward Wind" and "Crazy", for example, are considered Pop, and or Country. In reality there really aren't an enormous amount of Patsy Cline's recordings that offer Steel Guitars, and fiddles. Scan your Box Set sometime, I could only come up with a mear handfull of Recordings that offered Steel Guitar, and such. So really there wouldn't be a big loss of recordings. Those Country tracks would be replaced with "Lives", and Alternate Takes of such. Thanks again for those who like and support the idea!!! Amber, sorry I don't have E-Mail at this time. Hopefully by the end of this years Summer I will. Jimmy Walker wrote me the other day, he told me that he gave to you my address. Feel free to write. As you probally know, Jimmy and I have been writing regularly. Sincerley....

Hi Patsy fans! Just some quick notes... Well, my Patsy Cline page is almost up and running - this is my second attempt at "creating and maintaining" a Patsy Cline page. It takes a lot of hard work, I'm a tellin' ya! And Per, if this one doesn't work out, you'll be getting a lot more Patsy stuff for your page, ha! :) Anyway, when it's up and running, I'll let everyone know the URL. SHANE C. ---- could you please e-mail me? I have some questions to ask you, hoss! :) Thanks. See everyone later!

The recent discussion about so-called "alternate takes" and whether they exist is fascinating. I'm wondering if anyone has contacted the Clark group (whom I understand has tapes of Patsy's and won in their battle with Sony, which tried to obtain them)? For what it's worth, Mary Reeves (the widow of Jim Reeves) and a good friend of mine, told me one time that alternate takes existed on ALL of Jim's songs (and he recorded over 600). Nothing was thrown away. And she would know, because she shrewdly guided the posthumous release of many of Jim's tracks, including adding new instrumentation on some. So she had a good feel for what was in his repertoire. In fact, in a few cases, she left on Jim's conversations with the musicians, some of which are rather amusing. In Reeves's case, BMG has in recent years apparently even licensed companies overseas that were releasing alternate takes. This infuriated Mary, because obviously an artist may do a multitude of versions before perfecting the final "take". It's like any craftsman -- you may not want your mistakes to see the light of day. Also -- didn't they release a huge album of Elvis songs that were likewise "alternate" versions of his popular songs? The bottom line is, I would make an educated guess that such tapes ALSO exist of Patsy. Indeed it would be fun to hear her banter with the musicians (or get into a knock-down, drag-out with Owen!) Somebody should pursue this!

Howdy everyone. Shane, I read what you said about releasing another box set. Sounds like an interesting idea. I myself enjoy some of her pop uptown songs, like "Hungry For Love" and "Today, Tomorrow And Forever"; as opposed to songs like "Come On In" (the first recording) and "Hidin' Out", etc. But I doubt that there is sufficent versatile, actual suitable enough of her pop recordings and more [sensual] country cuts to make up another 4-CD set. Maybe a 2- or 3-CD one. I have always loved her pop songs, and love the recordings from Aurthur Godfery And His Friends contained on "The Birth of a Star". If it were up to me, I would make the first track on a new, pop-uptown boxed set, [if it were to attract new fans], "Hungry For Love". :-)

There seems to be alot of good questions asked this week. Thanks, Bill Cox, for the info regarding alternate takes. Your right!! A release would be great. It's only been recently that I questioned about this material, and yes, it is important for all Patsy Cline fans to know about. Most of you know that I have been pushing for a release of Patsy's TV clips. And yes, I did write, and sent a 3 page letter to Bruce Hinton of MCA Records, no response yet, but hopefully soon. And these clips remain just as important as the alternate takes. This valuable material showed not be held by anyone looking to let it be destroyed by age. However, it is comforting to know that someone is trying to do something about it, such as the company Bill mentioned. And think about this for a moment. Should this material end up never being released, whos going to be there to enjoy it. Being able to hear Patsy Cline talking in a clear studio environment, would send chills up my spine!!! Imagine listening to her banter about another take of "I Fall To Pieces" to get it right. Or maybe another shot at "Crazy" before the final perfectionist recording we all enjoy now. What a CD that would be.

There is another issue I think of often, and that is, releasing yet another Boxed Collection of Patsy. This time with rare never heard alternate takes, recordings from "Godfrey", Pet Milk, and so many others. Totally mastered from the orignals. And all the background noise on those "Live" performances gone... This may be harse but, if I was producing the perfect Patsy Cline Collection possible, all those too Country Recordings of Patsy would probally not be used. Personal preference. I believe if your gonna make another Box Collection, you have to try something different. And it would be a collection everyone would buy. And by taking out the Country selections that contain steel guitars, and such, you end up with a collection that could sell both ways. Uptempo Country or Pop. In other words, if I was producing this Box Collection, I would probably start with sessions around the time of "Stop, Look, And Listen". Then gradually add performances from the "Godfrey", and so on. I think it would give a different sound feel to her music. The collection would be more of a Blues/Jazzy Pop. Don't take me wrong, I fully enjoy listening to her Country sessions like the first one of "Walkin After Midnight", and others like "Come On In".

Let me know what you all think??? Just try not to shoot at me in the wrong direction. Like I sayed I fully enjoy all her recordings. But something different, would be neat. Sincerley... Oh one more thing... "Got Alot of Rythmm in my Soul" was done in Stereo on "Today, Tommorrow, and Forever". I have the Cassette release from 1986 or so..

Shane - I read your comments regarding film clippage of Patsy performing....and you thought it was with Ray Price. If you or anyone could shed some light on this, I'd appreciate it. As you know, I do a great Patsy Cline vocal impression.....and I'm opening for Ray Price this fall........and I'd love to know about the performance, what show it was for, and what song she sang..... thanks!!! Happy Mothers Day, Patsy! :o)

Bill: I am sorry if I sounded hostile. I didn't want to start an argument. The CD version is clear, but not stereo wise. If you listen to any of the other stereo songs on that cd, "Love Me Honey Do", for instance; you can clearly hear the stereo. Then listen to "Gotta Lotta Rhythm". [sigh] Anyways, I will have to take your word for the LP version, because I don't have the album, and it is hard enough to find any these days. Besides, I am not into collecting her records as most fans are, all I do is buy the CDs and enjoy listening to her. I mean, what's the use of buying old, scratchy records that u will never listen to?! I only have 3 of her LPs, and the only Decca one I have is "That's How A Heartache Begins", and it was just pure LUCK that I came across that one. So once again, I apologize for being hostile, I guess i will just have to live with the mono version :-) Sincerely,

Sherwood Park, AB Canada - Monday, May 11, 1998 at 05:27:07 (MET DST)
George: I don't want to start an argument over this, but the stereo version of "Gotta Lot of Rhythm In My Soul" does appear on "Today, Tomorrow and Forever". I have both the vinyl and CD versions of this album, and have just compared the track on each. The vinyl version is clearly in stereo. The CD appears to use a different tape. It doesn't have the same resonnance and sound quality as the other stereo cuts. That could stem from the fact that the CD version came out three years after the LP version, and MCA had to license and remaster the tapes yet again. They may have gotten a different tape from Masters International at that time. Mastering means you are making a copy of the original, and remastering (in most instances) means you are making a copy of the copy. As anyone who has dubbed a tape from another can tell you, you lose sound quality in the process. Also, the tape glitches you refer to, and the appearance of switching back and forth between the Left and Right knobs, may be your CD because mine has none of those. I'm listenting to it now and it's clear as a bell.

Bill: I have gone through my entire collection of Patsy Cline's music [not an easy task, mind you], and I have found that there are only 2 songs that were recorded in both mono and stereo that are NOT available in stereo. They are: "Gotta Lot Of Rhythm In My Soul" - 1959, and "You're Stronger Than Me" - 1962. All other songs, beginning with "I'm Moving Along" in 1959, are available in stereo on at least one other album if not on "The Patsy Cline Collection". However, you were saying how "Gotta Lot Of Rhythm" appears in stereo on the MCA album, "Today, Tomorrow And Forever". I happen to own that CD. In the liner notes, the album boasts that it contains, "the original stereo recordings of "Love Me Honey Do", "I'm Blue Again", "I'm Moving Along", and, of course "Gotta Lot of Rhythm". This is true. They all are in stereo, except for "Gotta Lot Of Rhythm". If you listen carefully to that track contained, it IS the mono version. All that is different is that when they mastered the CD, someone was playing with the L-R balance knob, creating false stereo. The track is bombarded with a number of tape glitches on this album, maybe perhaps intentional to make a stereo effect. But, it is not stereo. So, as I said before, only "Gotta Lot Of Rhythm (In My Soul)", and the 1962 version of "You're Stronger Than Me" are not available on any currently released album, in stereo.

George: The 12 Four Star tracks not included in the box set were left out intentionally. That way MCA and/or Masters International (who controls the Four Star recordings) could license those tracks for other albums, and generate additional sales. Per and Wade: The stereo version of "Gotta Lot of Rhythm In My Soul" can be found on the 1985 MCA album "Today, Tomorrow and Forever". It is indicated on the cover as an original stereo recording, and is discussed in the liner notes. The album is no longer available in stores, but probably could be located through a used record dealer.

Hi, I came across this site this morning. It's Mother's Day. I have been a huge fan of Patsy Cline as long as I can remember. I enjoy singing her music which I do every monday nite at a local bar and restrant. People ask me all the time if I sing for a living but I do not. Well, anyway, if there is something I missed I like someone to send me information about how her kids are doing. Thank you for this web site, I will enjoy hearing from you all soon.

Hi everyone, Just wanted to put in a plug for Logan Wells. If you haven't purchased a copy of Logan's new cd, A TRIBUTE TO PATSY CLINE, you are missing a fantastic cd that you will enjoy from the beginning song until the ending high note. I ordered my copy direct from Savoca Productions, P.O. Box 33453, Cleveland, OH 44133-3453. The price is $12.00. Not bad for a cd as good as this one. Logan really puts her heart into each song as she pays tribute to Patsy Cline. This is definately one cd that you will want to add to your collection. I don't think you will be disappointed. Thanks for supporting Logan Wells in her efforts to keep sharing the memory and songs of Patsy Cline with others.

Regarding alternate takes and mono/stereo versions: I got a question from Wade Settle a while ago, about where he may find the stereo version of "Gotta lotta rhythm in my soul", and I have found that version on only one album in my collection, and that is the Everest album "Reflections" (Everest 1229), released in 1964. It was also released in mono, and then the number is 5229. However, I don't know whether Everest made a fake stereo version of the song, from the mono master tape, or if they indeed used the original stereo tape. Your host:

Bill Cox, thanx for all the information you have given me. You are probably right about the Country Music Foundation not being able to locate the master tapes for some of the stereo versions of songs. That also may be why the Collection is lacking 12 songs from the Four Star sessions. They probably couldn't locate the original tapes, and obviously wouldn't settle for anything less than the best. It is very disenheartening when you know that the original master tapes have been lost, destroyed, or the [inevitable] deteriorating. Even with all the remastering and everything on the Collection, you can hear, on most of the studio tracks, glitches and other anomalies. Signs of wear and aging. Even if they transfer all the masters to DAT tape for preservation, they are going to have some quality loss. Well, I guess nothing lasts forever. Bye for now. Always,
George Hewitt <>
Sherwood Park, AB Canada - Sunday, May 10, 1998 at 08:07:18 (MET DST)
George: The notes in the back of the box set booklet, and on the back of the box itself, answers your question. The Country Music Foundation, in preparing the box set, made every effort to locate and use the original mastering sources (i.e. the original session tapes). It is very probable that the original stereo tapes of these songs could not be located or had deteriorated beyond the point of use. In the case of the Four Star tracks, anything could have happened to them once they were turned over to Bill McCall. Also, the CMF may have chosen to use the mono versions of "Yes, I Understand" and "How Can I Face Tomorrow" because of Patsy's overdubbed harmony vocals (which "Here's Patsy Cline" does not have). As far as the 1962 version of "You're Stronger Than Me", the box set and "Songwriters' Tribute" are the only albums that it has appeared on (it's only other release was as the flip side of "So Wrong" in 1962). If you notice, there is a tape glitch a short ways into the song and that could be the reason Decca and MCA chose to use the 1961 version in most of the albums. I have a cassette of "Songwriters' Tribute", and the cover heralds "Contains The Previously Unreleased Song 'You're Stronger Than Me'". Hank Cochran mentions this in his portion of the liner notes.

Hello again all, and thanx for that info regarding alternate takes. I hope that we hear some work takes of Patsy's songs real soon. Also, I am wondering about another thing: Patsy Cline started recording in stereo with "I'm Moving Along" in 1959. Thereafter, all her songs were recorded in both mono and stereo. Over the years, there are a few tracks that have rarely been released in stereo. For example: the stereo versions of "Yes, I Understand" and "How Can I Face Tomorrow", can only be found on the MCA CD, "Here's Patsy Cline". Now you would think that on 'The Patsy Cline Collection' they would attempt to use the stereo versions of all the songs after 1958. Now, most of the ones they didn't, can be found on one or two other albums. But, the remake of "You're Stronger Than Me" in 1962, isn't. Besides The Collection, the song also appears on "Songwriters' Tribute". It's also in mono. So, anyways, I was wondering if anyone happened to know of an album [released] that contains the stereo version of this song. Bye for now. Sincerely,
George Hewitt <>
