Patti Page was one of many pre-Rock singers who was very popular in the
early 1950s. With 3 #1 Pop songs, her most famous was "How Much Is That
Doggie In The Window," likewise "The Tennessee Waltz" and "I
Went To Your Wedding." Her Golden Hits consists of 12 of her
most popular hits, and is a wonderful blend of music that is very pleasant,
and how music sounded before Rock n Roll dominated the music scene.
The remaining songs (other than the #1 mentions) all have a great
Easy Listening sound. "Changing Partners" is similar to the style of
"Tennessee Waltz," where some may easily remember "Cross Over The
Bridge" as another popular song. Very pleasant sounding songs are heard
on "Old Cape Cod," and "Mockin' Bird Hill." "Detour" has an
early Country sound. "Why Don't You Believe Me" would become a #1
song for Joni James.
"Mister And Mississippi" has a typical pre-Rock style, with a chorus
that the Andrew Sisters could easily sing. "Allegheny Moon" is a very
beautiful song, having a relaxing Easy Listening style. "With My Eyes Wide
Open I'm Dreaming" has a very nice Easy Listening Sinatra style.
Patti Page's music reflects on a period of time where music had a very easy
pleasant sound, reflecting on what is now called Easy Listening music, and also
can relate to the Big Band Era. Of course, music is certainly not made this
way anymore, but it does show an interest to music fans who adore GOOD music,
before Rock n Roll took its course and blended into the many different styles
it would later surface. Golden Hits is a great title for this
compilation, each song is golden, and golden songs such as these are precious
and entertaining, far better than today's most standard styles.
