This is a compilation of Patty Duke's short lived singing career. All songs are in true stereo except for the three "theme" songs. The back of the CD states "Mastered from the original 4-track master session tapes, except tracks 1,13,14". The last track (15) is three minutes of studio chatter while Patty practices the intro to "Don't Just Stand There". Tempo of these songs is ballad to slow rock. "Everything But Love" was the flipside to the original 45 of "Don't Just Stand There" and is my favorite.

All the other posters here wrote some entertaining things (I even enjoyed the negative posts, for this kind of disc truly warrants a mixed reaction!). The truth is, much of Patty Duke's musical output is quite wonderful. She didn't have a voice, true, but she had spunk and verve, personality and a tomboyish sparkle that is unmistakable in her recordings. The best song here, "Everything But Love", was a B-side but is incredibly well done. The bonus track, "Patty in the Studio", is also terrific, displaying some of the in-studio chaos in trying to get a Patty Duke record in the can. The pop songs here are mild, but enjoyable, effervescent fun. Nothing but NOTHING is taken from Patty's self-recorded "Valley of The Dolls" album--I agree that it's pretty bad, her voice wavers all over the place--but I was so happy when I finally found that album that I didn't care. What is missing is "Tell Me Mama" from Patty's TV show (a super song) and Patty's song from "The Daydreamer", a Rankin/Bass cartoon feature which featured a nice vocal from Duke (although steeped heavily in Over-Dubsville). This compilation is well worth having for P.D. fans or '60's nostalgia buffs; one listen and you'll know which one you are.

If you were a teenager in the mid-60's,you watched The Patty Duke Show! You listened to "Please Just Don't Stand There" on the radio! You saw the movie, "Billie!" Bring back those great times & purchase this special Patty Duke CD!

For most of us, to be a Patty Duke fan means to have discovered her indomitable spirit when she was just a teenager in the movies THE MIRACLE WORKER and BILLIE and on TV in her own show. When she sang in BILLIE or on the LPs she released on United Artists, we responded to her spirit. She doesn't have an amazing singing voice. It doesn't matter. She has always attacked everything put before her with the utmost enthusiasm and it is evident here. Here are her "hits", a few "misses" and a rare opportunity to hear Patty in the studio trying to make sense out of what she was being asked to do. So, I give her recording 5 stars for her courage, her spirit, and her willingness to satisfy those of us who couldn't get enough of her and wanted anything the studios would give us. The songs are enjoyable, too!!! To this day, if Patty Duke's in it - I'm there. If that's you too- you MUST have this recording!

First off, Patty Duke is not a singer. Academy-Award winning actress, yes; singer, not. She did not want to embark on a recording career but the studio felt her popularity on ABC's "The Patty Duke Show" would translate well to vinyl, so they forced her into recording. Her albums are campy artifacts and collectors' items nowadays, and I am the proud owner of all of them. But since I no longer use my turntable, it's a treat that the best of those recordings have been remastered here.

Surprisingly, Patty did rack up a couple of hit singles with "Don't Just Stand There", and "Say Something Funny", both of which were among the Top 100 Hits of 1965.

Those two tracks are two of the best reasons to get "The Best of Patty Duke: Just Patty".

Another stand-out is the lush, Phil Spectorish "Everything But Love".

The songs she performed in the 1965 motion picture "Billie" appear on this CD in their full versions: "Funny Little Butterflies", "Lonely Little In-Between" and "A Girl is a Girl is a Girl".

Another reason to pick this up is the inclusion of BOTH versions of the "Patty Duke" theme song, the original boisterous big-band version (used for Seasons 1 and 2 of the show) and the third season version with the Bossa-Nova beat. These have been remastered and sound amazing, compared to the old version with tape hiss that was available on "Television's Greatest Hits: Volume One".

While Patty certainly hasn't the pipes of a Lesley Gore or Barbara Lewis, here she does no worse than say, Shelley Fabares, Millie Small or Diane Renay. The songs sound great and the cover photo is one of my favorites shots of Ms. Duke.

A ton of wonderful songs by Ms. Duke. So much talent for both singing and acting by one person is phenomenal and so is Patty Duke!!

I never followed Patty Duke's musical career but as a collector of TV themes and soundtracks, this CD is a MUST HAVE. Not only does it include both season's Main and End Titles but it also includes the second season's main and end title master backing track (refered to as the sing-a-long track). It's rare that CD producers do this but I wish they'd do it more often. The CD would probably sell to a wider demographic. It's too bad that the first season's main and end title master backing track wasn't included as well.
