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.

Patty Duke really has a style all her own! This disc has some of her better material, but wastes alot of space with 4 or 5 versions of the theme from her show. Read morePublished on May 12, 2008 by Dr.FORREST LEONE
