    Curb's BEST OF collection includes 12 Patsy Cline cuts from the first part of her career, when she was recording for the Four Star company. It provides a fine cross-section of the singer's material from this period. "Walkin' After Midnight" was Cline's first big single; Four Star hadn't even gotten the records pressed when she sang this tune on the Arthur Godfrey show at the beginning of 1957 and had to scramble to get it on the shelves.
    Cline and producer Owen Bradley had aspirations of breaking Cline as a crossover pop artist, and tried various material and arrangements over the course of the Four Star years (1955-1960). "Life's Railway To Heaven" and "Just a Closer Walk With Thee" were gospel cuts with crooning backup vocals, while "Let The Teardrops Fall" and "Got A Lotta Rhythm In My Soul" cut loose with twangin' rockabilly guitars and solid backbeats. The balance of BEST OF leans towards the pop repertoire that Cline would pursue full throttle beginning in 1960, when she signed with Decca. Interestingly, both "Walkin' After Midnight" and "A Poor Man's Roses" (also included here) were considered important enough to re-record with updated production in the early '60s.
