A Happy New Year to Per and all of you fans out there. This is Julie and I just wanted to stop by and chat for a minute. I wanted to thank each and everyone of you for all the kind words and rememberances, the flowers and cards, and all the prayers sent up on our behalf since the death of my Grandmother. Her death was certainly a sudden shock, even though when someone has lived a long life you know this day will come. I can only thank the Lord for the assurance that she is in heaven and there will never be sadness or pain or sorrow for her ever again. She is missed tremendously by us all. And yes, I can hardly hold my heart in my chest when I think of the loved ones she is seeing again! I pray for the day when we all get to join in on this reunion! My family and I did make the trip to Winchester for the funeral. I saw many family and friends that I don't see often. That's the way with these type of gatherings. Please do remember us in your prayers. My Aunt Sylvia and Uncle John and the rest of the family will have a much bigger void in their lives than myself, since they were there with her, so close. I have found myself thinking of calling and chatting...only to remember that I can't do that now. I will keep my family connections through other family members now. Grannie was my "home base" with the family. Thank you again for everything.

I wanted to share something with you; a song I heard a couple of weeks ago. It really blessed me, and there may be others that would be blessed as well. It's called "Going Home For Christmas" by Steven Curtis Chapman. It's on his Christmas album. He is a wonderful Christian artist. This song tells how "She's home for Christmas" and how "She'll be face to face with Jesus, as we celebrate His birth" and how she'll be with the ones she loves. It is a beautiful song. If you have the chance, you should hear it. The best to you all, and again Thank You for your love and support.
Julie and the family

I have been a fan of Patsy Cline since the summer of 1986. I just love her music and my boys and I enjoy singing together to the lyrics. My boys are 12 and 10 and like Patsy too. (Imagine That!) My boys think that I sound like Patsy, (I don't think so). I just received two more CD's for Christmas and was estatic. Some of the songs listed in this website say they are on LP, have all of her songs been put on CD yet? Happy New Year to all -- Have a SAFE Holiday!

A Linton and RJ --- The picture that Alexander saw was on Lisa Flood's Patsified site. Alexander, Johnny did not take that photo though he did take others. The photo used was tribute to Mrs H. that Lisa did, she used a photo of Patsy and Mrs. H when Patsy was in Vegas. RJ --- With any luck I typed the URL correctly. If I did not, use the links page to find Lisa's site. Always, Jimmy

I just wanted to take a moment to wish everyone a happy holiday and wonderful New Year. It is beginning to feel like Christmas in KY. It is very cold and we had some snow flurries today! Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday music... I would like to point out--if you have heard the song "All I Want for Christmas" by V. Vance and the Valients, the girl doing the lead vocals is Lisa Layne. She has portrayed Patsy in the Nashville production of "A Closer Walk". Notice those booming voices. Lisa returns next year for the third season in Nashville of "ACW". She has been so thrilled with the reception that Lexington has given her as the play "All I Want..." I have been emailing her husband about this. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Always, Jimmy Walker 12-22-98

I am so very sorry to hear that Mrs. Hensley passed away! Last week when I got a letter in the mail from Jimmy Walker that said she died I didn't know what to think. I was so shocked and sad. Last summer I went down to Nashville and met Charlie. He was so nice!! I was planning on going to Winchester this summer so I could meet Hilda. Always, A. Linton

The last week has been one of tremendous sadness for the Hensley, Patterson and Dick families, and for Patsy Cline fans around the world, as we bid goodbye to Mrs. Hilda Hensley. I know how difficult it is losing someone during the holidays, as I lost my mother in December 1986. We can be reassured that Mrs. Hensley has come home and has been reunited with Patsy. I had the opportunity to meet Mrs. Hensley just this past September at the annual Patsy Cline Memorial Foundation Banquet in Winchester. We spoke only briefly as she was busy attending to banquet arrangments and greeting many of Patsy's fans from around the world. Although tiring, it was clear that she did enjoy this evening and the opportunity to lend someone a helping hand by presenting an annual scholarship in Patsy's name. Mrs. Hensley had handcrafted many items such as bonnets, aprons, vests and soft-sculptured dolls which were sold as fund raising items. I am honored to have one of her bonnets, and I am thankfun I could give a small helping hand to her most cherished cause. Rest in peace, Mrs. Hensley.

I was very sad to hear about the death of Patsy Cline's mother Hilda Hensley. Although I never met Hilda, I'm sure she was a great woman in the same image of her daughter. As all of you have said here, at least now she is in a peaceful place with her daughter, what a happy reunion it must have been for the both of them. Although I was in Winchester in 1997 I never had the chance to meet her, and what a loss it is on my part. I had the chance, but never took advantage of that chance. Take care everyone.

I was greatly saddened to hear of the death of Patsy's mother, Mrs. Hilda Hensley. My heart goes out to Julie and Randy and the family during this sad time. It's always hard when a loved ones passes on but during the holiday season, it is especially bad. My prayers will be with them. I know Julie believes in the Lord and I hope she can take some consolation in the fact that her grandmother is not really gone, but just resting in a more peaceful place, waiting to see her again one day. Although it is sad, I have to smile just a little bit when I think about how happy Patsy and her mom must be right now. What a reunion they must be having in heaven!

Only this short statement will be published, for the time being, according to Julie's wishes. This is a very sad day, indeed... Our thoughts are with you and your family, Julie, during this time of great loss and sorrow... /Per

Gosh guys, it's been awhile since I put an entry in here! God, is it me, or is the time flying by? Well, sounds like from everybody that that new book is out on Patsy! Well, I guess I better get with the times and go buy it! Right? Am I right? LOL! Well, it's good to be back here signing in and the page is still looking good! Oh, I saw a video on CMT the other day. It was a video of Patsy singing "Crazy". Well, I immediately had to quit doing what I was doing and watch it! It was great! Well, guys, I'm gonna go check that book out now. Always, Kathy. Oh, BTW, Julie, I have a question for you. When will all of us fans be able to e-mail you? :)

Hey all, I have heard the new book--"The Real Patsy Cline" by Doug Hall is available and being shipped by I got my copy a few weeks ago. It is wonderful. The book is based on the interviews for the two Patsy videos. The book details the interviews more, and there are some that were not used in the videos. There are 40 b/w photos. This site gets mentioned in the book. The pictures of Patsy's houses taken by me were used from this web site. They turned out beautifully. Happy Holidays, Jimmy W 12-8-98

Looking to the future, I see more potential events that would beautifuly demonstrate Pasty's position as "forever" leading future country western singers and--composers who provide the platform/stage. Her heart and soul will always be present whenever soneome plays her songs, remembers her, and mentions her qualities. This page is a perfect sample. I won the Patsy Cline painting and have it centered on center wall in my office. People love coming past and looking at her. I feel truly blessed to share this space with her. Best of holiday greetings and good times to all Patsy's fans and family now and for years to come.

Hey all, it has been awhile. I forgot to mention a wonderful show that aired last night on TNN. Hopefully it will be repeated soon. It was 5th Annual Evening of Country Greats. On this show they spotlighted Harlan Howard and Owen Bradley. Collin Raye sang "I Fall to Pieces". Also Brenda Lee was spotlighted. Anytime this show is on you can expect to see the great country stars remembered in with honor. Always, Jimmy Walker 12-2-98

My name is Vicky and I'm from Kansas City, Mo. I'm a 21 year old college student at Northwest Missouri State University, but my obsession with my girl Patsy began at the tender age of eight. I watched "Sweet Dreams" with my mom and at the end of the movie I was singing the songs and trying to immitate her. My mom looked over at me and was floored by how close of a resemblence I have to her. I have never done any professional recordings of her songs, but I would love to someday. I read from someone on the list that they can't stand bad impersonations... well, make that for me too. If anyone is a die hard Patsy fan, in the K.C, Mo. area, than write to me at Love, Vicky

I like to say a big hello to everyone here!! I'd like to say to Christi Terry that although people today think the past was a male dominant world it really wasn't at all. Women in the fifties, and early sixties were pretty much able to do anything they wanted, although in those days somethings were unheard of in the public life. Patsy Cline did play somewhat of a role in opening up doorways for singers of today, but not as much as most people think. I myself have been a huge fan of Patsy's since 1985, but I know that she was more noted for her big beatuiful voice than anything else. People today try to conjure up ideas to how, and why Patsy may have played a rule in opening doors for todays female singers in all types of music. She may have very well done that for some female singers in her day, but actually it's her legacy that as opened those doors through the years after her death. And also with her recent popularity boom of the 80's, and 1990's most people would natural think she was responsible for others success in the music business. I'm not trying to be a hypocrite, but she sometimes is given more credit than anyone could possibly do in one lifetime. Take care...

I am a big fan of the late miss Cline! I love country music and I love miss Cline! I am a 16 year old girl that's a wanna-be song-writer, and singer. I think women like miss Cline has made the road to Nashville a little less hard! In her time, all women did was set home and take care of the kids. [Not that there's anything wrong with that, if it's what you want to do] but back then what you wanted didn't matter, because you were a female. So we all need to give miss Cline, and the others a lot more respect than what we do... Thanks, miss Cline, for all that you did!!! With all respect and honor, Christi Terry...

Cindy, recordings of Patsy's appearances on the various Arthur Godfrey shows during 1957-58 were released in 1996 on a CD called "Birth of A Star" from Razor & Tie Records. However, the CD features only Patsy and Arthur Godfrey. No one else. The CD was made from transcription disks Patsy bought from a company in New Jersey. Without those, there would be no way to hear these performances as the video footage has been lost/destroyed.

My father and his band played and sang on the same show but before Patsy went on. The date I've been given is 1960. His band name was Nat Miles and the String Twisters. Can you put me in touch with someone that can direct me in the right direction?

Comment: Patsy was born at the Winchester Memorial Hospital, but the family didn't live in Winchester at the time. They moved to Winchester when Patsy (or "Ginny", as she was called then), was in the eighth grade. Just after she was born, the family lived outside of Elkton, just as you said. They moved nearly 20 times between the time when Patsy was born and when they moved to Winchester. /Per

Hi everyone!!!! I've written here a few times but I decided to write again because I need some advice??? I'm 16 and I sing Patsy. I won a talent show by singing "Back In Baby's Arms" and "Foolin' Around". The prize was a $1,200 recording session in Nashville, TN. I went down there and made a demo tape of 12 Patsy songs. The engineer said I'm the first one he's heard to ever come close to Patsy's voice since her. I also met with Don Gibson, a record producer who offered me a recording contract, it's still standing. Well, my question was..... many people told me a should write to the city of Winchester and send a tape asking if I may sing there for Patsy Cline. I have talked to many people and they agreed I had a great chance. But, I don't know how to get the number or anything??? Can anyone help me??? Thanks. Sincerely Yours, Erica Dawn. P.S. Per,..... I love the site, have you thought of becoming the "OFFICAL PATSY CLINE SITE"????? You've got my vote!!!!!

For those of you looking for the original recording of "Blue", I realized after looking at my LP cover that I had given the wrong number. The correct number is SLP-9-409, and the title is "Country Music Hall of Fame Volume 7". It also contains "Just out of Reach" by Patsy. Sorry for the wrong number, and if I can be of further assistance in the Starday area, just let me know! Wade

About the song "Blue", it was written by Bill Mack and the copyright is Ft. Knox Music, which is what Starday songs are under. Kenny Roberts, a yodeler, recorded it for Starday in 1966, and is available on Starday album SLP-407, "Country Music Hall of Fame Volume 7". It is a very good recording and I feel that is the way Patsy would have sung it had she recorded it. You can take a look at the LP cover on my homepage on the Starday gallery. See yall later, Wade Settle

There was a male singer who recorded "Blue" for Starday Records in the late '60's or early '70's (sorry, but I don't remember his name). Bill Mack never pushed the song himself after Patsy's death, but his publishing company did. The subject of "Blue" came up at the Fan Club get-together over Labor Day weekend. I was told that Charlie Dick was working for Starday at that time the song was recorded and is reported to have been involved with the session in some manner. I was told he was the producer, but I can't verify that. Someone else have more info. on this?

Comment: "Blue" was written for Patsy by Bill Mack, but Patsy never got a chance to record it... As far as I know, Bill Mack sat on the song until he could find a singer that he thought could do the song justice, and that singer is LeAnn Rimes. I have not heard of any recording prior to LeAnn's. Maybe someone else has any more info on this? /Per
Hello everyone. Hope Everyone is well. As you know I am a die hard Patsy fan. Nothing bugs me more than to hear poor imitations. But... I finally found one that impressed me. A friend and fellow Patsy fan sent me a tape with a lady by the name of Logan Wells singing Patsy Cline songs. It was the closest I've ever heard. And I'm hard to impress. Then I disscovered that she (Logan Wells) has her own web site. I would recommend you look it up and give a listen. It's really good. Well just thought I'd pass that on. Must run.

Per, I have a question to ask of you. How are you able to post your pictures of Patsy Cline so clearly? I've been coming to this site for a good long time now, and have noticed, compared to other PC sites that yours remains to have the clearest. This is not to say other sites are bad, but yours always seems to be the best. And I should add that your site will always be number 1 on my list of favorite Patsy Cline sites. Sincerley...

Comment: Thanks for your kind words, Shane! Well, I put down a lot of time in making the picture files. I always scan the pictures in 24-bit color, even if the original is b/w. I use a resolution of 150-200 dpi, while many others use only 72 dpi or something, and I use one of the best photo editing programs there is: Photoshop. I put down quite a lot of time in making each picture, by tuning it into the correct brightness/contrast and the best possible color adjustment. When it is necessary, and possible, I also use the sharpening filter to make the picture sharper. This is always done when I have scanned the picture from an original photo on real photo paper, but it is often not possible to sharpen the picture if it is scanned from a newspaper or a magazine, because the structure in the paper often gives moiré patterns in the picture, and in that case the sharpen filter makes it even worse... When I am thru with the picture I save it in Targa 24-bit format, and finally I convert it into JPEG using the CJPEG.EXE program from the makers of the JPEG format, and I choose a quality that makes the picture file relatively small, but still not losing too much in picture quality. I think many people make the mistake that they compress the picture too much when they make the JPEG file, thus losing a lot of quality, and some people even takes a JPEG file, opens it in an editing program, and does something with it, and then resaves it in JPEG format again, and thereby losing even more picture quality. I never do that. JPEG is a data lossable format, and a picture should never be compressed into JPEG more than once! Therefore I always keep the original Targa versions on my hard disk. /Per
Hello everybody! I saw my first time the film about Patsy ("Sweet Dreams" J.Lange) ten years ago in Russia. It was great for me. I would like her country songs. Some days ago I found CDs with her songs in music shop in Sheffield (UK). I goin to all the people, who love and remember Patsy Cline. Sonya

WOW, where do I start with Patsy? Have been a fan of Patsy's for centuries, as it seems... So much so that I won't "sing" nothing but Patsy Cline when I karaoke and I try desperately to emulate her beautiful voice. Had I lived in the era the day she died, I would have taken her place on that dreadful nite, so that she would still be singing today... There are female singers that are great! But they can never take the place of Patsy. She is my # one female artist, her voice will never leave my heart... God Bless you, Patsy Cline, you will live forever... God Bless you, Matt.

It's been a long time since I submitted to the forum but here goes. I still believe Patsy is the best. There are many up and coming young singers and I'll give them thier due. Many of them are very good but most have a long way to go to reach Patsy's level of singing. Did you ever wonder, if Patsy had lived, what her music would be like now? Would it have changed to go with the times like so many do? I like to think she would have followed the same line of music she had. God knows she'd have had enough (has enough) fans to keep her going. Well, thanks for listening, Fan and Friend: Janice

Howdy Everybody! It's been awhile since I last signed, but I've been busy, busy, busy, as most of you are, I'm sure. I thoroughly enjoyed reading all about Bill's Winchester trip. I felt as though I had actually attended! I am very excited the new book is available, and equally excited about the Patsy Cline figurine. It'll be tough deciding between the 5" and 8" Patsy. I'm still awaiting my copy of Bego's biography from The Nashville Collection. I sent the money in June, and I have yet to receive the book!

Howdy everybody!! I just ordered the "Sweet Dreams" book on Friday from a book store in a shopping mall called Walden Books. It costs something like $12.00. The women working the front desk told me that the book was due to hit the shelfs in her bookstore in September. So just to confirm to Patsy Walen, yes, the book is out. I should have a copy in 2 weeks. Lisa, sorry to hear your nasty letter to Tower Productions did not work. That surprises me, alittle.

I am here to thank the author of this page and to express my fascination with Patsy Cline songs. To me she is number one and her songs help me when life seems a nightmare. Though I was born half a year later than that tragic May night, once hearing her voice I became addicted to it. Flowers from all Russian fans, Patsy! @}-->--

I went to see "A Closer Walk With Patsy Cline" at the Texas Troubador. It was a great show!! It's a must! Also I got to meet Jimmy Walker. He was very nice also. Does anyone know where I can get Patsy's sister's and brother's address? Thanks, Alexander Linton. My phone # is: (330)945-4351, My address is: 2031 Ohio Ave, Cuyahoga Falls, OH 44223

Patsy Walen, I'm amazed! Can someone explain why we've been told at Amazon that the book won't be available until December, yet B&N has it right now?? Also, Kelly, hang on to your money when it comes to the Jubilee video. I sent my payment in April, the check has been cashed, but still no video. I wrote them a threatening letter Homesick-Texan style a month ago and *still* no video. Anyone have any other suggestions? These fellas work out of a post office box, so I'm suspicious as hell. Never do "cash bidness" with a P.O. box!

Hello! I know everyone is excited about the NEW Patsy Cline biography. And everyone knows that the date set to be released keeps being held back at Amazon. Well, I went to Barnes and Noble and found that it IS available! And was released in August. It is $12.76. And IS in stock and takes 1-2 weeks to arrive. If you want to see for yourself and order, go to And just type in the search box, "Sweet Dreams: The Real Patsy Cline". Hope I could have helped some Patsifans!!

Hi ya'll! Haven't been able to stop by here for a while.....and it is good to see so many new Patsy fans sharing their memories and feelings about Patsy and her songs. I just got back from on the road with RAY was such an honor opening for this country music legend.....Ray was friends with Patsy......and I enjoyed meeting and talking with him after the shows. He and his crew were very kind to me. I was asked to include 5 or 6 Pasty Cline renditions in my opening act for Ray......which I did and got a roaring applause on each song from the audiences........ "Crazy", "Walkin' after Midnite", "Heartaches", "Always".........and the one I love best lately is "Leavin' on Your Mind".......Patsy, I hope you were there in we all still love you and admire the talent you shared with us. I feel so proud that people associate my voice with my all time favorite female singer! KEEPIN' IT COUNTRY! God Bless!

Frank: About Winchester... I definitely believe that Winchester is suddenly "pro-patsy" because they know that little suckers like me, hehe, will come down there for Patsy's sake, buy Patsy souvenirs, eat at the restaurants that Patsy worked/ate in, buy even more souvenirs, buy film to take pictures of anything and everything Patsy related, and most of all, pay big bucks to get into their PC museum. It all has to do with money. But, this is just my opinion and I'm allowed to have it. Just kidding :-) Regardless though, it's a great place to go. I love it there. --Amber

I really enjoyed your fan page. I have recently began to listen to Patsy Cline. I started listening after I visited the Country Hall of Fame. I find her voice very soothing and relaxing after a very stressful week of Graduate School here at Florida State. I hope to see the movie about her, and I really do believe she was a great person after all that I have read. Keep up the nice work on the page. B.J. Biringer

Jimmy W, just to let you know I did get your letter, I will be writing you shortly, sorry for the long pause since the last letter. I have been extremely busy lately, so I do apologize for that. Frank, I can understand your feelings toured the town of Winchester. If that would have been me visiting Winchester back in 1980 and heard rude remarks pertaining to Patsy I would have been very offended. I'm not sure what I would have said to them in response. Therefore I do in someways believe your comments. Commercially, yes Patsy has done very well in her numbers with record sales. And yes, this would indeed attract people to Winchester. I myself was attracted to Winchester in 1997, along with my then girlfriend. However I don't think that Winchester has gained economically to the point were everyone in the town has benefited money wise. Patsy Cline's popularity is now by far at it's highest, however I don't believe everyone that listens to Patsy knows were she's from, and in alot of cases some people don't even care. Patsy Cline's popularity comes from her great voice, not her hometown. Well, I'll move on. Welcome aboard!!!! to all those new entries here at this site. It's always nice to here from new people. Take care everyone!!!!!

Patsy has always been an inspiration to me. I remember the first time I ever heard her beautiful voice on the radio. Ever since then she's been no.1! She's helped me through some rough times in my life. When I'm having a bad day, I listen to songs and it reminds me there is still something in this world that is beautiful and pure. Patsy' biggest fan, Patty Crocker. P.S. Would like to meet other fans!

I still get really perturbed to see that Winchester, Virginia is suddenly pro-Patsy. I would be curious to hear from someone from that area of the country to explain why Winchester has gone from being "ashamed" of Patsy (as they truly were when I visited this sleepy town in 1980 and 1982) to being so pro-Patsy as they are now. I say this, only because I believe that they are doing it only for the proven commercial value that Patsy's memory now holds. I must ask these tough questions for, I feel if Patsy were still alive, she would say --- "Hoss, this ol' Virginia gal gave up on Winchester about the same time they gave up on the Cline, believe you me!".....Can anyone give me some perspective on this that would make me want to visit Winchester? I have boycotted the town since the last time I was there and the name "Patsy Cline" was a bad word to most of the hometown folks! Thanks. Per, your site is great.

Sarah H, this a great place to start finding information. Per has done a great job providing all kinds of details. You might look for some books on Patsy. While they may not be 100% correct maybe you can get to feel the real Patsy. There are also 2 videos, "The Real Patsy Cline" and "Remembering Patsy" that are very insightful. Patsy's widower and children were involved in these. Always, Jimmy 9-30-98

While this article is on Sammy's rockabilly career, there are some interesting side notes about Patsy and 4 Star. Country America has a nice 2 page article on ET Rec Shops. Patsy is briefly mentioned in this story. I have always told everyone to shop ET RS when they are having trouble finding something (URL can be clicked on from this entry to web page). Also Midwest Today has most of the Patsy article on the web. Check the NEWS page for a link to this. Always, Jimmy

First off I would like to congratulate both Bill Cox and Jimmy Walker for their writings pertaining to the Patsy festival in Winchester, VA. They were both very informative,and said many interesting things. Again I would like to say I am sorry I missed these events this year, and will try to do my best in attending them in 1999. I missed out in meeting all of you that attended, hope to meet you all next year. Lisa, I know that frustrating feeling you must be having by waiting and waiting for that video to arrive. May?? that seems longer than I had to wait. I ordered in I believe March of this year, and received my copy (after the nasty letter) around June. The best thing you can do is to send a copy of your cancelled check along with a letter explaining to them what happened. I even highlighted signatures on my check to further show my anger. I caution anyone ordering this video of Patsy Cline singing from "Jubilee USA". I'm not saying they are not a good company, because I don't know much about them. However Lisa, you can rest to sure you will receive your VHS Video shortly after you send a letter. I did 2 days after I sent mine. Hey everyone!! About that sales figure 1 Million for "The 1991 Box collection". That's great to hear. Take care everyone.

About ten years ago, I was asked to sing something for karioke night. I sang "Crazy", and they went crazy, telling me what a great voice I had! But if anything, it was not my voice, but the remembrance of a voice so passionately rich with melody that gave me the inspiration. I have been inspired by Patsy Cline's music since I first heard her deep, clear voice. No one is better. No one will replace her. She was and is the greatest country singer of all time. All others, only followed her lead. Happy Belated Birthday, Patsy... Julie, do you want to talk about your experiences with your Mom on my radio show? Email me if interested, it would be a great interview, and one I would cherish. God Bless you.

Hey all, thought I'd better drop a note about Winchester. It was fun as usual, getting to see old friends and meeting news ones. Bill Cox, Amber and I all got to finally meet one another. Friday was the auction/dinner for the musuem. Lots of money was raised by selling autographed celebrity pictures, movie memoribilia and of course Patsy memorabilia. Sat was our fan club Luncheon and then picnic. We eat alot this weekend! This was really casual. Mario Muniz spoke briefly about the Hollywood Star--this will be done next year sometime during May-Aug. Sun Geo. Hamilton IV was kind enough to have a small tribute to Patsy were he told many stories and sang a song or two. We all enjoyed his stories. Then we headed to Patsy's gravesite where the Hensley family had a small gravesite service. One thing noticed was a small plane circling above briefly. Then Mrs Hensley had a banquet for the P C Memorial Foundation and awarded a scholarship to a young student. One of the highlights for many was seeing video footage of Patsy from Tex Ritter Ranch Party of "Walkin' After Midnight". Also footage was shown of Sylvia Wilt accepting the honor for Patsy Cline Day in VA. We all had a great time. Charlie was in town as usual and was kind enough to speak to the fans and just hang out.

The big news of the weekend is the projected date of the musuem opening --- 9-8-01! This will be a state of the art musuem. Included will be dvd audio/video, cafes, a theater and many other ideas. It should be exciting a wonderful tribute to Patsy. I met a small group of fans in Nashville Wed, we all went to see Mandy B perform. She floored us as usual! Fri we went to see "Just a Closer Walk" and then Sat was the Opry. Mr Hamilton arranged backstage access for us. We were thrilled. Vince Gill was there and many of my friends are so jealoused I met him. Other activities included a day trip to Camden and Dyersburg, sightseeing in Nashville. We 2 couples and another 2 all from England! They had a great time. Y'all take care. Remember 9-26-98 is the fall fest in Camden TN. Unfortunately I will not be able to attend. Always, Jimmy 9-16-98

HAPPY BIRTHDAY PATSY HONEY!!!!!!!! This is such a great week for all of us for sure. Patsy would be proud of all of us. Missed being in Winchester this year, will try harder to get there next year. I was not able to attend because of working through that weekend during the festives in Winchester. Wade, to answer your question, yes I did get my video from Tower Productions. Although it took a nasty letter to do so. I throughly enjoy watching this video from time to time. I always enjoy Patsy singing with Cowboy Copas, what a treat it is for anyone who buys this video. And Wade, I have also not bought the new CD, not sure I need to. Take care everyone, will write in soon...

I was raised by my grandparents on a farm in rural northwestern Minnesota and that's where my love of Patsy Cline grew and developed. Nowadays, I include many Patsy Cline songs in my performances and they always, always bring a smile to someone's face! Patsy is truly one of my favorites! Thanks for the memories. This is a great site! I really enjoyed my visit.

Comment: Thanks very much for your kind words, Kim! /Per
Frank, when I was growing up in Texas, I heard people sing or say "That's what I like about the South!" and eventually I did hear a song with that line in it, although I can't remember at this moment who sang it. As for that particular film scene (at the very end, just before Patsy calls Hilda from Dyersburg), it looks to me like a fictional scene, because it is so perfect, ha! Real life seldom has such movie-ready scenes.

Hi all, especially Jimmy W. Sandy is great as Patsy Cline with George Hamilton 4 as narrator. My daughter and I had front row seats and George handed her the Babe Ruth choc bar he features. Sandy is great but and in some songs I could almost believe it was Patsy singing. But no one ever will be the real Patsy Cline. Regards to all, Bernard

Hi All, About the film "Sweet Dreams", as Jimmy Walker wrote, the film is not true to detail, possibly because "real life" is seldom interesting enough to make a film of. Never the less, the film did give a wider audience an introduction to the talent of Patsy, and increased the pressure to release more of the recordings still tucked away. Regards to all, Bernard

Hey all! Frank, I have looked for the scene in the movie you spoke about. I could not find it, I remember it. I am not sure if it true or not--I think the scene is supposed to try to show how Charlie might be. I do know he has walked on stilks. As far as the accuracy, not really. While the basic story is told, so many scenes were told incorrectly, for instance: She wore an evening gown on Godfrey, the car crash was in the rain when the other driver passed someone, the plane crashed during a storm into the ground, the wig she wears during recording of "I Fall to Pieces" was worn after the car crash. I noticed some other things but I will not carry on. Like I said, the basic story is there, I just wished they would have told it correctly, but the same is true of "Coal Miner's Daughter"... Take care everyone, I am busy preparing for my trip to VA. Always, Jimmy

About the "Sweet Dreams" question: I thought Charlie sings "And that's what I love about Sal" as he slides down the pole. -Amber

VA USA - Friday, August 21, 1998 at 02:32:16 (MET DST)
Hi all! Here's a question that I know someone on this great website can answer... In the movie, "Sweet Dreams", there is a scene in which Ed Harris (as Charlie Dick) is fairly "under the weather" in a bar and he jumps up and swings around a post (a beam or a pole) in this bar and sings out loud, "And that's what I like about the South!"... Then he kind of slides down the pole. My questions are... Does anyone know what this song is that Harris is singing, and secondly I am wondering if anyone who knows the real accuracy of the movie knows if that scene really happened that way, or even CLOSE to that way??... How would a filmmaker know something like this? Any reposnsees here on the fantastic Per Patsy site is appreciated!

Hello! It has been a while since I signed in. So I decided to write in again. This web-site keeps looking better and better, Per! You did a great job! And lots of hard work! I am so happy that "Sweet Dreams" will be re-released. My copy is so old and used and the sound is horrible. It is time for a new one. And about the book "Sweet Dreams", anyone have any ifro. on it? I'm sure it will be just as good as the other Patsy biographies. I'm amazed to see how many Patsy Cline fans there are! Sometimes I think I'm the only one! But, being on the Internet and e-mailing so many nice Patsifans. I know I'm not the only one. I just wish more people would pay respect to such a GREAT singer. She deserves it all. Patsy will always have a place in our hearts and always in mine.

Hi! I have been a Patsy Cline fan since I could walk (I am 32 years old). My Aunt used to play Patsy all the time. Patsy is really big here in Oz and I have lot's of friends who are Patsy Cline fans also. My favorite song used to be "San Antonio Rose". I also like "Sweet dreams" and "Crazy". Her gospel songs are good too, like "Life's Railway" and "Just a closer walk with Thee. OK, that's my rave. I love P.C.

One more thing ya all. Patsy Cline is indeed listed in Billboard Magazine. Jimmy, you are somewhat right, she is found on Billboards Catalog listing. This is found under Country's weekly singles listing. This week; "Greatest Hits", 8th position, at 8 Million sold copies. "Story" is somewhere around 20.

Well folks, I think I may have found that new release on Patsy Cline. Where??? Music Boulevard, at Title: "Vol. 1 Four Star Recordings", Release date 8/18/98. I don't believe there will be any treasures with a title that includes 4 Star. I could be wrong, but I'm not expecting anything I haven't heard already. If it is indeed unreleased material, then it would have to be alternate takes of such from 4 Star material. I don't want to overestimate here or anything so thats all for now. Sincerely.. Shane...

Wade, I was wondering the same thing about this new CD. In fact, the other night I was talking to a friend that heard this CD is supposible coming out either the end of this month or early September, and that this CD will contain unreleased material, and photos. Whether all this is true is not certain. I just came from a record store, and they were not sure of a new release. The newest release was a reissue of "Heartaches" but that was in July. However it goes, there is work being done currently on a new one, but whether it's on unreleased material we will have to wait and see. After I am done here tonight I am going to check another record shop in town. Maybe before the nights over I will have come up with an answer. Sincerely..
PS: If anyone can back me up on this, please do so.

Hello all... This is somewhat off topic. I just had to tell you all that I won front row seats and backstages passes to a Brenda Lee show over the weekend. She has one of the best shows I have ever seen! I was mesmerized. I got to meet with her in her dressing room afterwards. She was one of the nicest people I have ever met, and made us feel very comfortable! Her show included all her hits from the 60's, as well as some tunes from various other artists like Elvis, Carl Perkins and of course Patsy's "Sweet Dreams". She has a wonderful monologe of funny stories to tell. Believe this was dream come true. If anyone needs info on the fan club Labor Day weekend or activities in Camden TN (Sept 26) please email and I will try to help. Always, Jimmy 8-9-98

Wade, Shane, and Mark O, glad to see you hosses back! I have my front ticket to see "Patsy!" in MI. Can't wait. I got a card today that "Always Patsy Cline" will be back in Montogery, Alambama for the month of Aug. Call 1-800-441-4273 for info. Celeste Burnum plays Patsy, I can not vouch for this particular production. I can vouch for Gail Bliss (in "Patsy!"). She was awesome in Branson! Always, Jimmy
PS. About Billboard, I don't think Patsy is ever on the top 100 unless it is new product. After so many years it goes to the catalog listing where she was at #1 for some 5 yrs!

I have always liked Patsy's singing. The first time that I got a CD of her was last month not even. Patsy is the best singer that I ever herd and to go with that, she is the best looking woman who ever that lived. My favorit song is "Walkin After Midnight". I do have some questions about Patsy. (1) Is it true that Patsy was killed in a plane crash? (2) How old was she when she died? (3) When did she become famous. (4) How many songs did she sing in her life. (5) Where did she first sing. My grandma has a tape of her and they are really good songs too. It is really hard to find CD's and tapes of her in the stores of her. I have one more question, (6) What went wrong with the plane that made it to crash if that is what happened. Anyway, I think that she is the best of all time and she will always be the best in my opinion. "HORRAY FOR PATSY CLINE!!!!!!!!!!"

Innisfail, AB Canada - Wednesday, August 05, 1998 at 19:30:10 (MET DST)
Comment: Answers to your questions: (1) Yes. (2) 30 years and six months. (3) Probably when she sang "Walkin' after midnight" in the Arthur Godfrey show on January 21, 1957. (4) She recorded 98 different songs in the studio, and she recorded four of those twice, making a total of 102 recordings. And during her live performances she sang yet a few more songs that are available on CD, and maybe someone is willing to count those for you, but it is of course impossible to know exactly how many different songs she sang in her life. (5) Can't remember right now. I'll have to check the books for that one... Maybe someone else has the answer? (6) One theory is that the plane was caught in a thunder storm with heavy rain and low clouds, and since the pilot wasn't instrument rated (he could only fly when he had visual contact with the ground), he paniced and lost control... There was also a witness who claimed that he heard a small plane with engine problems. I guess we will never know EXACTLY what happened that tragic evening on March 5, 1963... But what we do know is that the plane crashed face down into the ground, with the engine at full throttle, killing four people... /Per
It has been forever since I've signed in the ole guest book. I visit as often as I can, but it seems like I never have the time to actually sign in. The site still looks awesome! Did anybody catch the Dave Letterman show last night (Monday night)? They played 3 different Patsy Cline songs on a segment they did. They played parts of "Gotta Lotta Rhythm in My Soul", "Stop the World and Let Me Off", and "Walkin' After Midnight". It was kinda neat to hear ole Patsy belting it out on the Dave Letterman show.

Hello everyone!! Good to be back here again, it's been awhile. Bill Cox, just to let you know I checked out Billboards site, and yes you're right, there is know showing on Patsy Cline. But believe shes in the magazine. I don't subscribe to Billboard either, but I do check out this info at my local Record store. Most Record shops that I have been in usually have a copy or two of Billboard. I think Patsy isn't shown because that part of the charts is not. Looks like Billboard for some reason is only showing half of what they publish in their Magazine. I think you ask what positions Patsy is on, well last time I checked (and I will check again soon, and post the positions here) "Greatest Hits" was somewhere around # 5 or 6, "The Story" was somewhere around #20, and "Heartaches" trailed behind that. Like I said I will chesk again shortly. Take care everyone. Sincerley..

Hey to all, I am back. I lost regular Internet access, so getting here is not possible all the time. I finally got my copy of "Patsy Cline Discovery" and I think I like it better than the Razor and Tie issue. I also found a CD of "Today, Tomorrow and Forever". It was the 1988 MCA release and it sounds great of course. I was lucky enough to find it in a bargain bin at the mall in Paducah. Does anyone know anymore about this new CD that is coming out this fall? I can't wait til it is released. Well, enough gab for now, and Per, keep up the fantastic work, hoss! Wade

Howdy Everybody! I've been on vacation and also have been very busy, so I haven't signed in for a while. I've noticed many exciting things are forthcoming... A new Patsy Cline book, and a porcelain figurine, for starters. I am very excited about these items and have already placed my order for the book. While on vacation, I just so happened to meet a total of 4 Patsy Cline fans in one day, which is something I've never experienced before in the NY/NJ area. Needless to say, I was thrilled to finally meet some Patsy fans in the flesh. Prior to "meeting" many wonderful Patsy fans on the Internet at Per's, I'd never had anyone to share my Patsy passion with. Per, congratulations on completing your Decca collection.

Comment: Thanks, SueBee! /Per
Yes, the MCA CD "Always" does contain the overdubbed versions of "Always" and "Does Your Heart Beat For Me". The songs on that CD are:

1. Always
2. I Fall To Pieces
3. True Love
4. South of the Border (Down Mexico Way)
5. That's My Desire
6. Faded Love
7. I'll Sail My Ship Alone
8. Does Your Heart Beat For Me
9. Foolin' 'Round
10. I Love You So Much It Hurts

The album was produced by Owen Bradley, and was created to meet the demand for Patsy's material that occurred after the release of "Coal Miner's Daughter". It first appeared on the market in 1980. I have both the LP and CD versions. Many people dislike these overdubs, but I find them to be enjoyable. As the liner notes indicate, it does allow the comparison of production styles/techniques of the '60's to those of the '80's. You should be able to purchase the CD through any record store, as well as some of the online services.

My mother (who died in 1988) had a two record set that she obtained from a TV offer that was named "The Legendary Patsy Cline". On these discs were re-recorded backgrounds for at least two songs; "Does Your Heart Beat For Me" and "Always". Most of her best was included in this set but the majority were in mono. (The two I mentioned above were in stereo). Although I treasure the 4 CD set, "The Patsy Cline Collection", I would really like to have those two re-recorded songs on CD. (Re-recording was done also in the "Sweet Dreams" CD as I am sure most of you know. The "Legendary" LP set is in excellent condition (for vinyl) but the ticks and pops drive me nuts! Mark Bego ("I Fall to Pieces" bio) writes that MCA's "Always" CD contains re-recording on some of the tracks (as does "Sweet Dreams"). Does anyone HAVE the "ALWAYS" CD? On "Does your heart beat for me" the background singers are women and the overall effect is stunning. Please help! Need these cuts on CD! Thanks!
