The Complete US Hits 1948-62
Catalogue Number: ACTRCD9050
Patti Page was the most successful female artist of the 1950s, selling more records and scoring more chart successes than any of her contemporaries, with over a dozen million selling singles. She epitomised the mood and style of popular music during the early ‘50s, with a blend of jazz, big band and novelty material, later incorporating country music influences as well. Her debut hit in 1948, “Confess”, was the first to feature an artist harmonising with herself using revolutionary overdubbing techniques, and it became a trademark of her subsequent hits, even being billed on the label as The Patti Page Quartet. This great-value 85-track 3-CD set comprises every Billboard and Cash Box chart entry which Patti had in the USA from that 1948 debut through to 1962, including her four landmark No. 1s “All My Love”, “Tennessee Waltz”, “Doggie In The Window” and “I Went To Your Wedding” among the thirty-five Top 20 hits featured here. It’s a definitive overview of the primary chart career of one of the most popular and distinctive vocalists of the post-war era.
