There is a lot of personality in the music and in the performances. While her voice isn't as crystalline as it once was, the nuances Rosie puts into lyrics make up for it. You can "hear" the twinkle in her eyes when she sings "Sisters". She also handles "God Bless the Child" with a lot of soul. The Irving Berlin tune "Always" is here and I'm glad. It's an incredible lyric that is perfectly handled musically. The arrangement here is light and open, delicate and done well.
You have to like Rosie to like this cd. I don't think this collection will make anyone a convert, but in terms of selection and quality of performance, this is a good one to add to your Rosie collection. It is also a great one to listen to with your mom!
The best songs on the album are the classic 'Turn Around' (a duet with Keith Carradine), 'Baby Mine' and 'Always', as far as suiting her voice, and suiting the subject matter. The entire album is relaxing, touching, and a must-have for moms and their daughters alike.
Opening track ~ "THANK HEAVEN FOR LITTLE GIRLS", is touching sentiment with the women in her family (daughters/grand-daughters/sister-in-laws/sister) ~ how seldom Rosie has told them, but with this album and through music they will cherish and love every selection. Must make mention of the final track ~ "SISTERS" (Irving Berlin), performed by Rosie & Betty Clooney with Paul Weston & His Orchestra/recorded June 23, 1954 ~ the harmony is so instinctive that if Rosie coughed, Betty would find a third for it.
Want to thank ~ John Oddo (producer/conductor/arranger/pianist) ~ Glen Barros, John Burk & Allen Sviridoff (executive producer) ~ Leslie Ann Jones (recorded/mixer) ~ and Concord Jazz for this look into the inner most feelings of this legendary "Girl Singer"!
Total Time: 55:16 on 17 Tracks...Concord Jazz CCD-4754-2...(1997)

I was not a huge fan of the early Rosemary Clooney, so this older Rosemary is not a great place to start. I am sure early fans will love this.Published on June 16, 2014 by Beauty Within

I love this CD! Clooney loves her girls you can tell. I recommend this as a gift for any mother expecting a girl or for any Clooney fan.Published on November 21, 2005 by Tricia L. Reed
This cd seemed doomed from the very beginning. Let me try to explain. For starters, it used a lot of electronic instrumentation. I would have preferred acoustic instrumentation. Read morePublished on September 30, 2000
