Bear Family's Many a Wonderful Moment gathers eight discs of Rosemary Clooney's music. Beginning with her switch to Columbia in 1958 and including her complete recordings for MGM, Coral, RCA, Reprise, and Capitol, the set covers ten years' worth of work with Bing Crosby, Nelson Riddle, and other stars of the time. Excursions into country, Latin, and inspirational music round out this impressive, substantial set, which also includes a hardcover book with a biography and discography. At 210 tracks long, Many a Wonderful Moment is primarily for hardcore Rosemary Clooney fans, but it offers them many of her best moments.
