Patsy Cline has what proves to be the last recording session of her career at Nashville's Columbia Recording Studio, cutting "He Called Me Baby," a future hit for Charlie Rich. Her final song in the studio: "I'll Sail My Ship Alone"
"She Called Me Baby" is a country song written in 1961 by Harlan Howard which despite a number of recorded versions did not appear in the Top 20 of the C&W chart in Billboard until 1974 when a mid-60s recording by Charlie Rich was belatedly released to reach #1 C&W. In its female version, "He Called Me Baby", the song was a Top Ten R&B hit for Candi Staton in 1971.
