“I’ve listened to this record over and over and over, more times than you can imagine. I discovered it in high school, and in college it became something of a standard for me.
“She’s Got You is my song. [Sings] ‘I've got your memory, or has it got me?/ I really don't know, but I know it won't let me be…’ Patsy Cline’s voice and her delivery of that line, they just run right through you. Then when she sings, ‘I’ve got your class ring, that proved cared’ – she makes it so believable. You feel what she’s feeling.
“Crazy is probably my favorite Willie Nelson song, and his demo of it is unreal. When you hear it, you can understand why Patsy had trouble singing it at first. But she got something else out of it, which is remarkable. And we have Back In Baby’s Arms – [sings] ‘How I miss those loving arms/ I’m back where I belong, back in baby’s arms.’
“Patsy Cline’s voice is about as perfect as it gets. You know, when we record songs these days, we sing them five or six times sometimes, and they comp the takes into one great vocal. Patsy would get up and perform with the band, and she’d sing live straight through. No putting the vocal together. That’s incredible.”
