Patsy Cline: Crazy For Loving You

Patsy Cline: Crazy For Loving You

Patsy Clines expressive voice and magnetic stage presence took her from the honky-tonks of her native Winchester, Virginia, to the Grand Ole Opry, network television, Carnegie Hall, and Las Vegas. A pioneer of the genre-crossing Nashville Sound in the early 1960s, she won new audiences for country music with crossover hits such as I Fall to Pieces, Crazy, and Shes Got You. Though she died at age thirty in a plane crash on March 5, 1963, her music continues to inspire new generations of fans and artists across the musical spectrum, from Martina McBride and Reba McEntire to Diana Krall and Norah Jones.With a foreword by Rosanne Cash and an essay by noted country music authority Paul Kingsbury, Patsy Cline: Crazy for Loving You explores Clines importance as a brilliant singer, as a role model for women in the music business, and as a compelling story of personal tragedy and artistic triumph. Lavishly illustrated, this book offers more than 100 photosmany of them previously unpublisheddepicting Cline on and off the stage, and including stage wear, her own hand-drawn costume designs, jewelry, and other personal effects. Memories from family members, friends, and musical colleagues provide additional insights into the life and tragically brief career of one of American musics most iconic figures.

The Patsy Cline Story by Patsy Cline

This product is manufactured on demand using CD-R recordable media.’s standard return policy will apply.

One of the pioneers of the country pop “Nashville Sound” of the late ’50s and early ’60s, Patsy Cline’s remarkable voice still resonates amongst vocalists today, in pop as well as country. Her earthy yet studied approach as a singer gave such records as ’57’s “Walkin’ after Midnight” and 1961’s “Crazy” (penned by Willie Nelson) a unique quality unmatched since her death in a 1963 plane crash. This 24-track retrospective was originally released shortly thereafter and includes all of her classics such as the above tracks as well as “She’s Got You,” and “Sweet Dreams.” It also features some nice extras, such as her takes on standards such as “San Antonio Rose” and “The Wayward Wind.” –Billy Altman
