New CD Exquisite

I received my copy of ďThe Divine Ms. ClineĒ and popped it in the cd player, expecting it to be great just from listening to the samples. I have to say I was blown away. As good as the samples are, they simply donít do the cd justice. This cd is exquisite! Patsyís magnificent voice soars, without any distraction. Itís just her, like youíve never heard her before. Patsyís vocals have always been timeless; however, the same couldnít be said for the music. Donít get me wrong, I love the original recordings; however, the music and arrangements sound like what they are - dated to the 1960ís. That isnít a criticism. The original recordings were magic. This new cd sounds as though these fantastic songs, paired with this magnificent voice, were recorded today. Now, the wonderful thing is, we have the original recordings to listen to and an amazing new treatment that is current. I must also give kudos to Sara Jordan Ė the cd flows wonderfully. You know what Iím going to say next Ė Buy this cd if you havenít already! Donít bother with the myriad repackaging of Patsyís songs that are on Amazon. Whatís the point when you can get something new?
