Album #19: “Patsy Cline—12 Greatest Hits” (1962)
My friends from high school have been throwing a New Year’s Eve party every year since, well, high school. Sometimes it was just five or six of us, sometimes 50 or 60, but we usually made a effort to dress up (rare for my friends, believe me). The job of hosting it has been handed off from one friend to another over the decades, and during the years we were throwing it at the Belvedere, “Patsy Cline’s Greatest Hits” finished every party, as we danced into the dawn. It was a good way to start the new year.
