Sony International's Greatest Hits serves up some of Rosemary Clooney's definitive pop hits from the '50s, including playful novelty hits such as "This Ole House," "Mambo Italiano," and "Come on a My House," as well as sweet love songs like "Tenderly" and "Hey There." Other highlights include "Blues in the Night," "Beautiful Blue Eyes," and "Too Old to Cut the Mustard," a duet with Marlene Dietrich. Die-hard Clooney fans may be disappointed by the prevalence of novelty songs on this collection, and it doesn't have nearly the reach of a compilation like 16 Most Requested Songs or Bear Family's Come on a My House, but it's still a fairly decent representation of some of Clooney's best-known work. ~ Heather Phares
