AllMusic Review by

This anthology from country music icon Patsy Cline first appeared from MCA Records in 1996. Of Cline's many posthumous collections, 1991's massive multi-disc The Patsy Cline Collection is the most thorough, but those looking for a more distilled representation of her brief career will find that this set has all the major highlights. Songs like "Crazy," "Walkin' After Midnight," and "I Fall to Pieces" were all major hits and remain bona fide standards of the genre, but slightly lesser-known material like "Three Cigarettes in an Ashtray" and "Why Can't He Be You" show further depth in Cline's lonesome, romantic sound. At 25 songs, this goes beyond the standard Greatest Hits release to make a fairly comprehensive highlight reel.
