Early life and rise to success

She was born into a large and poor farming family, whose mother and older sisters picked cotton. They went without electricity, so young Clara could not read after dark, as she related on TV many years later. However, she became a featured singer on a 15-minute radio program on radio station KTUL, Tulsa, Oklahoma, at age 18. The program was sponsored by the 'Page Milk Company' and so young Clara Ann Fowler became songstress Patti Page. In 1946, Jack Rael, a band manager, came to Tulsa to do a one-nighter. He turned on the radio, and heard the musical program with the 18-year-old featured vocalist. He liked what he heard, and asked her to join the Jimmy Joy band, which Rael managed. Eventually both left the band; and Rael became Patti's personal manager and leader of the backup orchestra for many of her recordings. Cotton ready for harvest. ...

Recording career

In 1948, she recorded a song called "Confess" which had a portion requiring one singer to answer another. (The other hit version involved a duet of Doris Day and Buddy Clark.) Because of a low budget, a second singer could not be hired, so Jack Rael suggested that Patti sing the second part as well. The novelty of her doing two voices on one record probably contributed to the song becoming a Top 20 hit for her. Confess is a popular song. ...

At the time, most record companies had a director of Artists and Repertory (the "A&R man") who tightly controlled all the choices of artist-song assignments, and Mercury Records' A&R man was Mitch Miller (who became famous later on as the A&R man who brought Columbia Records into a dominant position in pop music in the early 1950s). After recording "Confess" Page (or Rael, or both) liked the multiple-voice idea so much, that she asked to do an entire song as a quartet. Miller was sceptical until Patti recorded a four-bar song demo in four different voices, and played the sample for Miller. Mercury Records was a record label founded in Chicago, Illinois in 1945 by Irving Green, Berle Adams and Arthur Talmadge. ... Mitch Miller (born Mitchell William Miller on July 4, 1911 to a Jewish family in Rochester, New York), is remembered as one of the best-selling recording artists of the 1950s and early 60s. ...

Reluctantly, he permitted it, and the song, "With My Eyes Wide Open I'm Dreaming", became another big hit for Page, her first to sell a million. Although both Mary Ford and Jane Turzy became known for it, Page was the first singer to record multiple tracks on the same song ("Confess"). On some of the records, she was billed as "Vocal by Patti Page, Patti Page, and Patti Page," in at least one case ("With My Eyes Wide Open I'm Dreaming") being given quadruple billing. As stated above, "Confess" became her first charted hit, in 1948 for Mercury Records, and reached #12 on the Billboard chart. Her first number one hit was "All My Love", based on Maurice Ravel's "Bolero", which was #1 for 5 weeks in 1950. Mary Ford (born on July 7, 1928 with her original name Iris Colleen Summers) was one-half of a husband-wife musical duo; the other half being Les Paul. ...

Her biggest hit was "The Tennessee Waltz", which was #1 for 13 weeks, coming a few months later in 1950. In 1963 she changed record companies, going to Columbia, but finally returned to Mercury in 1971. While at Columbia, she scored her final Top 10 pop hit in 1965 with the title song from the Bette Davis film Hush, Hush, Sweet Charlotte. In 1973 she went back to the Columbia family, recording for Epic Records (a subsidiary).

Later career

In 1974 and 1975 she recorded a couple of records for Avco Records, then, after a hiatus of a few years, started in 1981 to record for Plantation Records, her last record label. Patti's last single to appear on any Billboard chart was the 1982 #80 Country single "My Man Friday", released on Plantation. (She last appeared on the Pop chart in 1968 with her version of O.C. Smith's hit, "Little Green Apples", and on the Adult Contemporary chart with "Give Him Love" in 1971.)

Afterwards, Patti made only the Country chart up to 1982, with her biggest hit during that time being "Hello, We're Lonely," a 1973 #14 duet with Tom T. Hall. In the 1990s she started her own label, 'C. A. F. Records'. In 1998 she won a Grammy as "Best Traditional Pop Singer". Many of her songs have a strong beat to them that prelude rock 'n' roll. These titles include "Mister and Mississippi", "Detour" and "Cross Over the Bridge". In 1956 she married choreographer Charles O'Curran.

Patti, second from the youngest of eleven children, was often without shoes and playing in the fields while her mother and sisters picked cotton in Claremore, Oklahoma, where she was born Clara Ann Fowler in November, 1927.
Soon thereafter, both Patti (she took the Patti Page name and made it legally hers when she left Tulsa) and Rael left the band and struck out on their own with Rael as Patti's manager, a partnership that was to last almost 50 years.
Patti was the first female to be inducted into the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame along with Merle Haggard and Woody Guthrie and now in 2002, she has been honored with the Living Legend Award from the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame.
