Anybody who remembers Rosemary Clooney from the fifties as I do, might be excused for being slightly surprised when scanning through the available recordings of this lady to discover that she is still going strong.
More by luck than judgement I decided to buy this collection and boy, am I pleased that I did.
The tracks appear in date order, the first being recorded when Rosemary was 49 years old, the last in this collection being at age 70. If anything she just seems to get better with age, like a fine wine.
If you like listening to a superb voice backed by restrained jazz this would be good value at two or three times the price...
What you will end up with is one of those albums that you will want to hear time and time again, with a selection of tracks that doesn't contain one dud.
