September 8, 1932 – March 5, 1963
Written by Eddie Miller and W.S. Stevenson
Recorded by Patsy Cline May 23 1957
"In Care Of The Blues" on the album "Patsy Cline" is a self-titled studio album by American country music singer, Patsy Cline, released on August 5, 1957. This was the debut album by Cline and would be one of three studio albums Cline would record during her lifetime.
Recording began as early as January 1956 and ended as late as May 23, 1957. Because the album was released on Decca, it was produced by Owen Bradley, who would later produce all of Cline's sessions between 1960 and 1963. Background vocals were done by the Nashville background vocal group, The Anita Kerr Singers, who also backed a number of popular country music artists in the 1950s and 60s.
Cline recorded 12 songs for the album, a mix of honky tonk, rockabilly, and country pop. Many music critics have called the tracks very different from the other material she recorded for her later albums. One of the songs, "Don't Ever Leave Me Again," was co-written by Cline with James Crawford and Lillian Claiborne. She used her real name, Virginia Hensley, in the songwriting credits.
