RIP Patti Page

http://www.nbcsandiego.com/news/local/Patti-Page-Died-Encinitas-Rancho-Santa-Fe-185415202.html


One of America's musical icons, Grammy-Award winner Patti Page, has died at a nursing home in Encinitas according to her personal manager.
In her seven-decade recording career, Page sold more than 100 million records making her one of the most successful female recording artists.
Page performed all over the world and was often asked to sing her biggest-selling record, "The Tennessee Waltz" which she recorded in 1951.
Others know her as the voice behind the recording "(How Much Is That) Doggie In The Window."
Page, whose real name was Clara Ann Fowler, died Tuesday night at the age of 85 according to staffers at the Seacrest Village nursing home in Encinitas.

9. Sad News

I was not a huge fan of a lot of my parent's music, but one I liked was a single from her, "Left Right Out of My Heart" - The Cape Cod song was nice too.

RIP Patti.

16. My mom loved her version of "Mocking Bird Hill."

She was one of the first to double-track her vocals on a regular basis, at the insistence of Mitch Miller, so her records were sometimes classified as "group vocals."

She was also in the movie "Elmer Gantry."

A lovely woman. Rest in peace.
