By Matthew G. Sherwin HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on February 24, 2007
Format: Audio CD
Patti Page withstood the test of time in show business; her beautiful songs with their lilting melodies remain memorable and catchy. Patti Page made a great name for herself in pop and country with her rich, warm and vibrant voice. Moreover, Patti was able to impart a sense of intimacy to her audiences when she sang; and her audiences loved her for it. They still do.

This twelve track CD on the 20th Century Masters label opens with one of her best selling hits ever entitled "Tennessee Waltz." The sublime yet mournful musical arrangement complements the lyrics; and Patti delivers this song with great sensitivity. The arrangement makes great use of the horns, too! "Mockin' Bird Hill" displays Patti's ability to sing a song celebrating her love for her man. The musical arrangement uses the flute very well. "Mister And Mississippi" displays Patti's ability to sing a playful song. "Mister And Mississippi" sports a wonderful musical arrangement as well--I love that guitar that accompanies Patti as she sings each verse!

"Detour" gives us a hint that Patti already had the capacity to score a coup with a country type of song. "Detour" explores the sadder side of life but Patti performs this with such aplomb that you will love this song the first time you hear it! Excellent!

Other classic songs on this CD include the smash hit "I Went To Your Wedding" in which Patti explores her feelings as her lover marries another woman; the sweet and sentimental "(How Much Is) That Doggie In The Window" and "Changing Partners." "Changing Partners" is a slow song about a woman's desire for a man she loves; Patti delivers this song flawlessly! This song also features another beautiful arrangement for the horns.

Patti's passionate rendition of "Let Me Go Lover!

The liner notes and the photos are worth the price of this collection. The performances, the songs, etc. all deserve FIVE stars as the last 50 years of sales and popularity have proven. The only reason I gave this collection FOUR stars is because it contains only 12 cuts, 35 minutes of music. Certainly this could have had 18 cuts as the COLLECTION from the UK has.

Patti Page (1927-2013) was among the last vocalists to emerge from the big band "girl singer" mold, beginning her career as a radio singer and then touring with the Jimmy Joy Band, a minor group, before signing a contract with Mercury Records. Although she had hits in the 1940s and the 1960s, she was most successful in the 1950s, bridging the demise of big band and surviving the advent of rock `n' roll. Page was noted for combining pop and country and for singing her own back-up vocals on her recordings, both of which were very unusual for the time.

Page's biggest success was easily the 1950 "The Tennessee Waltz," a song which had kicked around since 1946 and which her clean vocal and back-up harmonies put at the top of the charts. Other notable successes included "Mockingbird Hill," "How Much Is That Doggie In The Window," and "Old Cape Cod." Page's voice has a very `blonde' quality: it is smooth and pleasant, but it is also very safe, without any edge. At her best, she fills a niche somewhere between Doris Day and Rosemary Clooney; at her weakest, she is a singer who would have been perfectly at home in the chorus of the Lawrence Welk Show, and that may or may not be a good thing depending on your taste.

THE BEST OF PATTI PAGE: THE MILLENNIUM COLLECTION does not include such early successes as "Confess" or later hits like "Hush, Hush Sweet Charlotte," but it does include the most obvious recordings, including "Why Don't You Believe Me" and "Allegany Moon." Unfortunately, the recordings here are in dire need of a remaster. They have a muddy quality that doesn't do Page's voice full justice. Mildly recommended, but if you are seriously interested in Patti Page, you'll need to find better quality recordings.

Although this sports new remastering, unless you have either the Golden Hits CD available here at Amazon and your local CD shop, the now out of print Golden Celebration boxed set or the 2 volume "Patti Page Collection" series (Volume 2 is also out of print), this is unnecessary as it duplicates every track on Golden Hits except for Let Me Go Lover instead of With My Eyes Wide Open I'm Dreaming and the songs are arranged in a different order. Fans are better off looking for the 2 previous out of print collections with Let Me Go Lover to obtain this track and for the rest of this stuff, either buy Golden Hits, the boxed set and the 2 volume Patti Page Collection series, and BTW, Vol. 1 is still in print so you can order it right here at Amazon.

Has there ever been a more angelic voice for light pop and country music than Pattie Page? I doubt it; always pleasant, but with an occasional tone of heartbreak in her voice, Page is electric in ways that more animated performers will never be. "Mister and Mississippi" is one of the songs that makes one yearn for the days of great songwriting--it's recording is quite scratchy but it is nonetheless a keeper. "Tennessee Waltz" is the original mutli-tracked version and it lacks a bit of the poignancy of Page's solo versions (as performed on stage) but it is an interesting version of the tune nonetheless. "Changing Partners" is one of Page's most beautiful contributions to the art of song performance, and it is not the version used of late in Paul Thomas Anderson's film "The Master" (which was not performed by Page), but the recording here is my favorite. Overall, if you want a great collection of early Page songs with decent sound, this is a good one. This has very good quality in its selection of songs. A-
