Following on from MCA's and Sony's concept of brief hits collections for a digital age that probably doesn't need them, Capitol's Classic Masters volume on Patsy Cline includes only 12 tracks. And since most of Cline's classics appear on MCA, this isn't even close to the best of the many budget compilations available on her. There are a few highlights -- "Walkin' After Midnight," "Just a Closer Walk With Thee," and "Poor Man's Roses or a Rich Man's Gold" -- but anyone wishing to hear what made Patsy Cline great has dozens of better choices.
