Personnel: Rosemary Clooney (vocals); Bing Crosby (vocals); Pete Candoli (trumpet); Jimmy Rowles (piano); Buddy Cole Orchestra.
A little brief at under 45 minutes, Come on-a My House: The Very Best of Rosemary Clooney includes most of the best of Clooney's Columbia hits (the title track, "This Ole House," "Botch-a-Me [Ba-Ba-Baciami Piccina]"), along with a few excellent album tracks ("Clap Hands! Here Comes Rosie," "How Am I to Know?"), but it pales in comparison next to her better retrospectives, including 16 Most Requested Songs, where listeners will find "Mambo Italiano" and "I Could Have Danced All Night." ~ John Bush
