Certainly not the definitive Patti Page collection, but not

"The main thing one needs to know about this collection is that the recordings in it were made when Patti Page was recording for Columbia in the 1960s. So although there are a number of her big hits from the 1950s in the collection, they are not the original versions (made for Mercury), but remakes. She did, however, have some hits for Columbia, such as "Hush, Hush, Sweet Charlotte," which are on here, and the CD includes her versions of a number of other singers' big 1960s hits, like "Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head," which sound just fine. Only one song on this CD is truly obscure, the last track, "Just a Simple Melody," which I had never heard before, but this is certainly NOT the "Patti Page's greatest" album that Columbia might make you think it is.
Nevertheless, nothing sounds bad. This album is really second-rate Patti Page, past her prime, but second-rate Patti Page is better than first-rate samples of many other singers."
