A surprisingly dark, smoky set of tunes from Rosemary Clooney – a rare set for Reprise
, and her last new LP to appear until the late 70s! Rosemary cuts a number of well known numbers here, which is not a surprise, but the number of searingly bleak tunes here does make it a bit of a jolt – and quite compelling! Smoldering, angry, aching numbers – not on par with similar work by deeper artists like June Christy, but a welcome slice of after midnight sulking from Ms. Clooney! Tracks include "Hello Faithless", "The Rules Of The Road", "All Alone", "Black Coffee", "A Good Man Is Hard To Find", "I Gotta Right To Sing The Blues", Cole Porter's great "Miss Otis Regrets", "Thanks For Nothing (And All)" and "Careless Love".
(Original pressing – clean, with some light surface marks. Vinyl has a click on one track. Cover has some light wear and a small bit of tape on the bottom.)
