Showcase (VMP Country Exclusive 180g 'Have You Ever Been Blue, Orange, Yellow' Vinyl)
Showcase, the hit-stacked masterpiece from Patsy Cline, is the VMP Country Record of the Month for June 2022. It's here on exclusive "Have You Ever Been Blue, Orange and Yellow" colored vinyl — remastered AAA from the original mono tapes by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound and plated at Welcome to 1979 — with the original album cover from 1961.
"'Showcase' is the second of only three studio albums Patsy Cline would release during her lifetime. Cline recorded the record at Nashville’s Bradley Film & Recording Studios (also known as the Quonset Hut Studio) alongside famed, in-demand gospel quartet, The Jordanaires, known for work with artists like Elvis Presley and Eddy Arnold and producer Owen Bradley, who produced her debut and the remainder of her output.
While songs like "Crazy" often overshadow the legacy of the broader 'Showcase' project, the album — in addition to being endlessly listenable, start to finish — is a critical text in understanding Cline’s legacy and her place as royalty within the country music canon. Though it seems Cline didn’t have the degree of creative control she would have hoped for while recording 'Showcase,' the tracks that comprise the album truly do function as the album title implies: Listeners hear not just a proficient singing voice but a visionary artist, one who could wrench a spectrum of emotion from a handful of notes and who performed as though her very life depended on it."
