Just a Closer Walk with Thee

by: Patti Page

Originally released in 1960 and reissued in 1995 (apparently with the final track, "Lord's Prayer," deleted), Patti Page's sacred album finds her singing traditional gospel numbers before dynamic choral arrangements by Malcolm Dodds, which at times draw attention away from her typically warm and sincere vocals. Prominent bells, drums, and a harp are heard, with little else in the way of instrumental accompaniment. But the choir, sounding as though it ought to be backing a more soulful soloist, really stands out. ~ William Ruhlmann
