AllMusic Review by

This particular Patsy Cline collection focuses on lesser-known songs recorded between 1955 and 1960. The 20-track sampling includes "Lovesick Blues," "Stop the World," "Pick Me Up on Your Way Down," and her first hit single from 1957, "Walkin' After Midnight." Why the American Legends label made this a two-disc set is puzzling, as these songs could easily have fit on one disc. Plus, most listeners will want a greatest-hits package with Patsy Cline's mega-hits like "I Fall to Pieces," "Crazy," "She's Got You," or "Leavin' on Your Mind."
