Mastered at Sterling Sound direct from the 1/4-inch master tape. This was
a straight transfer, bypassing the console altogether. There was no EQ of any
kind. A true direct transfer. You're hearing the master tape!
In the late 1950s and the '60s, country music was essentially a singles medium.
This album, first released in 1967, collects a dozen of Patsy Cline's biggest
hits — all of them from the country singles market — including "Walkin' After
Midnight," "Sweet Dreams (Of You)," "Crazy," and "I Fall to Pieces." Producer
Owen Bradley surrounds Cline's full-throated, emotionally charged vocals with
lush, sophisticated arrangements that set the standard for Nashville's "countrypolitan"
sound. Before Shania Twain found a new (though not necessarily improved) way to
combine country and pop in the 1990s, this was the top-selling country album of
all time by a female artist.
