Editorial Review:

Product Description:
As a pop singer, Clooney could enchant everyone from Broadway fans (as with her #1 smash Hey There ) to die-hard jazz fans (with gems like Blue Rose ). Those two classics join her '50s Columbia hits Half as Much; Mangos; Tenderly; Mambo Italiano; This Ole House; Botch-A-Me , and more-16 big hits.
Though she would finish her career as one of the most respected jazz singers in American popular music, Rosemary Clooney fought long and hard for those props. This 16-track collection chronicles the early stages of her struggle, mixing the outright, if still vibrant novelty songs (tunes like "Mambo Italiano" and "Come On-A My House" were foisted on Clooney by label exec Mitch Miller) that helped make her a popular film, radio and TV star with more sublime fare like "Tenderly" and the emblematic hit "Hey There." But it's on tracks like Duke Ellington's "Blue Rose" and a pre-Sinatra take on "The Lady is a Tramp" that her true muse comes shining through. Though limited in scope, this anthology manages to showcase the early hits that made Clooney a star and, more importantly, the beginnings of the willful jazz sensibility that forged her legend. --Jerry McCulley
