Patsy Cline is an EP released by American country music singer, Patsy Cline on January 29, 1962. It included four new songs from her recording sessions under Decca Records the previous year.

This was Cline's third extended play album to be self-titled. The EP consisted of four songs Cline had recorded since her near-fatal automobile accident in June. The first side of the record contained her single from late 1961, "Crazy" and a cover of Buck Owens' "Foolin' Around." The flip side contained "Who Can I Count on" (the original B-side the "Crazy" single) and a cover version of "South of the Border (Down Mexico Way)." When the EP was released in early 1962, "Crazy" had already become a major country-pop crossover hit, peaking at #2 on the Hot Country Songs chart and #9 on the Billboard Hot 100. All of the songs included on this EP were also released on Cline's album released in late 1961, Patsy Cline Showcase.

The cover photograph was taken by photographer Les Leverett.[2]
