Album Review

In the early '50s, while her singles smashes like "The Tennessee Waltz" and "(How Much Is) That Doggie in the Window" were breaking sales records, Patti Page was also recording many LPs, then a firm fixture of the adult market. The Sepia collection Sings You Go to My Head & Songs from Manhattan Tower combines two of these, the first from 1953 and the second from 1956. These were conceptual albums along the lines of Frank Sinatra's In the Wee Small Hours or Mel Tormé's California Suite, and those two albums (respectively) are the ones to look at when thinking about what Page and Columbia were trying to accomplish.

(A few artists, ranging from Ray Charles to Dick Haymes, have also recorded songs from this suite.)

By singing a wide range of popular material and her own share of novelty fluff, she proved...
