HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICEon 2 May 2013
This is a fabulous collection of 8 Rosemay Clooney's Lps.

All the albums been digitally remastered and enhanced for superior quality and the Real Gone Jazz label has garnered some really good reviews for sound quality.
The digitally enhanced sound is a good indicator but for a proper review I really suggest you read other, more knowledgeable people's reviews.

But Amazon have not (at the time of writing) given a list of the actual classic albums nor the track listings. So I have provided one.
There are 8 albums spread over 4 CDs

The albums are
Hollywood's Best,
Blue Rose,
Ring Around Rosie,
Swing Around Rosie,
Fancy Meeting You Here?,
A Touch Of Tabasco,
Clap, Here Comes Rosie, and
Rosie Solves The Swinging Riddle

If any kind person knows the spli over the 4 CDs I would be grateful if they could add a comment in the box and I will adjust and credit them for their kindness.

Rosemary Clooney has one of the most distinctive voices. The minute she starts to sing you can tell that it is Rosemary. Her phrasing is superb and her voice as smooth as velvet. This collection is a great testament to her individuality and her beautiful voice. Absolutely superb.

Some of Rosemary's best known albums in really good quality sound, but I am sometimes amazed at the lack of information in such sets. Don't the producers think that the purchasers might be interested in supporting information?

A few informative notes and background information would add considerably to the value (and justify an increase in the price).
My rating is adjusted accordingly.

As far as I'm concerned much better than the original 78s and 45s. A fine collection containing many songs of Rosemary Clooney I hadn't heard before.

George was not the first Clooney to successfully entertain in a quality pleasing way, here we have his aunt Rosemary singing in her style that
Was only matched by the likes of Jo Stafford and Dina Shore ,I use to have the vinyl version of the duets with Bing Crosby, which included
And now missed " True Love" possibly copyright the fact that the song was featured in the film "high society" anyway it still deserves five

This is a fine collection of her work and the reproduction quality is second to none,unlike some of the other discs in this series of questionable "remaster enhancements". It is well worth every penny and a very worthwhile addition to anyone's CD collection.

A top quality vocalist with a really smooth singing voice. Rosemary Clooney was equally capable as an actress. Great to listen to.

Main complaint is absolutely no sleeve notes or dates, also several tracks are purely orchestral with no Clooney vocal. Lastly,the glass cd retaining centres have crumbled away the first time I attempted to return the discs to the cd box. Rosemary Clooney is superb but she deserves much better presentation.

For lovers of nostalgia this collection is a must buy. This collection has a bit of everything. Blues/swing/latin/ballads.atists like duke ellington/harry james/ bing crosby and nelson riddle.the only letdown is there is no sleeve notes.
