    Unlike other MCA reissues of Cline's material, HEARTACHES is a little short on the details: no liner notes, no session personnel, no recording dates, just 10 of the singer's recordings and a cover shot of the post--1960 pop-version Cline. The material leans towards the latter part of her career, with Decca-period hits like "Crazy" and "I Fall to Pieces." Other tunes also bear the pop touch, with strings, other orchestral elements, and backup vocals by the Jordanaires. Curiously, however, this collection includes the earlier version of "Walkin' After Midnight," the one that actually sounds like country, with its wailin' steel guitar mixed right up front (Cline recut this early hit of hers in 1961 with, you guessed, the Jordanaires and a more refined, milder groove in place of the heavy country shuffle of the version included here).
    Cline's vocals break with emotion and soar effortlessly regardless of the material, and the later tunes here have another kind of charm for anyone who enjoys fishing for irony in lounge-infested waters. Cline and producer Owen Bradley were aiming straight at the early '60s pop market, and they scored cocktail-flavored bullseyes with tunes like "Heartaches" and "She's Got You."
