Mastered at Sterling Sound

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! 

"You just will not believe how good the sound is from these two 50-year-old classics (Patsy Cline's Greatest Hits and Elvis' Stereo '57) reissued on SACD from the Analogue Productions label." — Joe Tang, AV Magazine, July 2013

"Cline, of course, created both the template for the heartbroken, angst-ridden C&W warbler ... This perfect package contains a dozen of her hits, milestones from a career tragically cut short when she died at the age of 30 in a plane crash, 50 years ago this March. 'Walking After Midnight,' 'I Fall To Pieces,' 'Crazy,' 'She's Got You,' 'Sweet Dreams' — her output of only three LPs in her lifetime remains a textbook study of the genre, every performance faultless, the production sublime, every C&W cliché present in all their honky-tonk glory." — Sound Quality: 93% - Ken Kessler, Hi Fi News, October 2013

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.
