This is a great collection of classic songs recorded and originally broadcast on Rosemary Clooney's 1950's TV series. Arranged and accompanied by Nelson Riddle and his orchestra, Rosemary is in great voice and the remastered sound quality is really very good. The compilation is produced by Michael Feinstein. It's great that these vintage recordings have now been preserved. They are that good!.

Clooney at her youthful peak 10 April 2004
By Joel D. Arndt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The sales rank on this item at Amazon is fairly high at this point and I find it hard to believe no one has written a review for this CD yet, so let me be the first.
If you're a fan of Rosemary Clooney, Nelson Riddle or just great songs from the American Songbook this is a great CD. The remastering of the selections sounds wonderful. Even though Michael Feinstein has written a disclaimer regarding the sound quality, it is by and large terrific considering these selections were recorded nearly fifty years ago for the infant medium of television which was considered throwaway at that time. While the prerecordings give a more stilted, less spontaneous and lip-synched look to Ms. Clooney's television series of the time, they are excellent in and of themselves. I agree with Mr. Feinstein that these recordings probably represent the best sounding television recordings of that time.
The song selection is top-notch and represents Ms. Clooney's desire to sing classic material. Twenty-six cuts including Moonlight in Vermont, How About You? (with superb vocal support from The Hi-Lo's), I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm, There Will Never Be Another You (a personal favorite that was written originally for the 1942 Sonja Henie epic Iceland), I Can't Believe That You're in Love With Me, Dream, You Make Me Feel So Young, Hey There, Haven't Got a Worry and many, many more.
The real surprise here is the superb arrangements of Mr. Riddle's for Clooney's huge silly hits of the early '50's including Botch-A-Me, Mambo Italiano, This Ole House and Come On-A My House. These songs have NEVER sounded so good. Drop the cheesy arrangements (especially the harpsichord), have a stylish arranger such as Riddle come in and these insignificant songs swing lightly and sound better than they ever did or should.
I strongly recommend that you pick up this Concord release post haste and add it to your collection. Just sensational! You won't be disappointed.

A GREAT CLOONEY TREASURE CHEST 5 May 2004
By W. Budris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I've been hesitant to purchase this CD outright, but finally did. What was I waiting for? This will probably become my all time favorite Rosie album of her 50s sound, as I've been playing it for two solid days. Her 1956 series was out two years prior to my first appearance in this world. Growing very fond of Rosemary's voice through the years, due to my parents being fans, and annual visits to WHITE CHRISTMAS on TV, I am glad that these series tracks have made it to CD in such great sound. Despite Feinstein's disclaimer, the sound is superb. After hearing Rosie's version of MOONLIGHT IN VERMONT, we now have a definitive version. Nelson Riddle's arrangements are spectacular. These songs in this format are so long overdue for Rosie fans, and I hope it is so successful that a Volume 2 will follow, especially if there were 39 total shows. These 26 tracks may represent the best, but there's gotta be more. As an opening theme was used with TENDERLY, I wonder if there was a closing theme as well? I've only seen varied clips from this show a long time ago, but glad that the songs are now here on CD.
Marvelous!

A very nice collection 25 Jun 2004
By Bruce R. Gilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Many of the songs in this collection are songs which Rosemary Clooney made famous. The versions here are not the ones that charted, but remakes which she did as part of her 1956 TV show --- and all I have to say is that they sound DIFFERENT, but still great! I would normally consider that "not the original version" means "watch out!" but I really liked this CD. If you like Clooney, don't be afraid to get this CD; if you are too young to remember, listen to this to hear what a great voice she had.

Rosemary Clooney at Her Best 10 Jan 2008
By Brian Drabik - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I am a huge fan of Rosemary Clooney and Judy Garland, so anytime a new cd appears for them I will typically buy it so long as I don't already have at least a few of the tracks on the album.

To be honest, when I bought this cd I really wasn't expecting much, because: 1) the low-quality cover art and 2) the reference to the TV show. I thought the sound was going to be awful, but I had to have it anyway.

Much to my surprise I discovered on the liner notes (after opening the packaging) that Rosie was smart enough to PRE-RECORD the songs for her show and then lip-sync on camera. So we can enjoy her glorious voice in good quality!!! Add on to that Nelson Riddle did the arrangements (who is second to only Count Basie with arrangements in my humble opinion).

I wish there would be a follow-up to this cd with more from her series. True television magic caught on cd. Perfect for any Rosie fan, or anyone who likes hearing some good standards.

Rosemary can do no wrong 18 Aug 2008
By E. J. Leyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Most of these songs can be found on other CD's or compilations. It's always good to hear a new arrangement. And it's a real kick to hear the DOOO-WAAAA-OOOOOOH background singers that where so popular in the 50's. Rosemary is in fine voice here. Definitely something to add to your Clooney collection.
