Biography

Singer Patti Page's supremely polished, soothing voice was a source of comfort and enjoyment to millions of record buyers in the pre-rock-n-roll era with such pop singles as "Tennessee Waltz," "I Went to Your Wedding," "How Much is that Doggie in the Window?" and "Old Cape Cod, which topped the charts between 1951 and 1956. Though critics and highbrow music buyers dismissed Page's material as the epitome of the soulless, occasionally inane pop fluff that not only made it possible but virtually required the rise of rock-n-roll, she was among the most popular female singers of the period, enjoying a longer run on the charts than many of her more famous predecessors like The Andrews Sisters or Rosemary Clooney and even peers like Jo Stafford. Page also benefited greatly from her talent with country-pop hybrids like "Tennessee Waltz," which allowed her to continue to enjoy chart hits on the country charts after her pop career faded in the mid-1960s. Though rarely afforded critical respect or the appreciation of the music industry - she would not win a Grammy until 1998 - Page's lovely and tasteful voice gave pleasure to millions of listeners at the height of her career and in the decades that followed.
