Background[edit]

Faded Love is a ten-track collection of songs by Patsy Cline under her second record label, Decca Records. The songs varied from Country and Pop music standards such as the title track and "Anytime," as well as previously unrecorded material such as "Imagine That" and "When You Need a Laugh." The album's title track originally peaked at #7 on the Billboard Magazine Hot Country Songs chart and #96 on the Billboard Pop Chart in 1963. In addition "He Called Me Baby" peaked at #23 on the Billboard Country Chart in 1964. The album was issued on a compact disc at the time of its release. In 1995, the album was reissued on Universal Special Products.[3] Faded Love was on the first Patsy Cline MCA compilations to ever be released on a CD instead of a record.
