She is one of the ultimate icons of the music world, and we're coming up on the 50th anniversary of the plane crash that took Patsy Cline. I love that big contralto voice of hers, which I always thought was pure rock at its heart. And in fact she did a bit of rockabilly in the 50s, but she was directed more toward torchy, almost cabaret material, especially near the end. Let's take some time to listen closely to that amazing voice, in salute and wonder.
