Patti Page was one of America’s true musical icons over the course of a recording career that spanned seven decades and she had record sales in excess of 100 million. She died in 2013 and was the first female artist that blended country music styles into many of her most popular songs. As a result of this crossover appeal, many of Page's singles appeared on the Billboard Country Chart.
This two disc collection is a real treasure chest of old style recordings with more than a sweet voice to carry the songs. The songwriters range from the Wills Brothers, Johnny Cash, Tom T Hall, Ernest Tubb, Kris Kristofferson and Lefty Frizzell to Marty Robbins.
Old standards like I Fall to Pieces, Release Me, I Walk the Line, Walking the Floor over You, Help me Make it Through the Night and You Don’t Know Me and the original hit version of Tennessee Waltz are included in a generous fifty songs. Collectors of traditional songs and recordings that echo post-war country music development will be interested in this slice of real nostalgia.
