The Clooney Sisters - Rosemary and Betty - toured and recorded with the Tony Pastor band when they were both teenagers. On some occasions Rosemary was given solo material and when it became apparent that she was a major solo star in the making, and not wishing to hold her back, Betty returned to Ohio where she sang on local radio before moving to television. After The Clooney Sisters disbanded in 1949, Rosemary went on to super stardom in the 1950s and her life story has often been narrated from the golden days through the dark days at the end of the sixties and to her rebirth at the end of the seventies when she resumed a career that would last until her death in 2002. Betty's own TV show was entitled "Teen Time" and she started to slowly build a career of her own as a vocalist. By the mid 1950s she had recorded for several labels and also starring on Jack Parr's "Morning Show" before moving to CBS TV and Radio in the daily Robert Q. Lewis show whilst living in New York. Retiring from show business to raise her family she died of a brain aneurism in 1976 at the age of just 45. Our set opens with 13 tracks by Betty followed by the whole of the Rosemary Clooney live concert album at the London Palladium in 1955 before the CD concludes with them signing off on a number together. Well, what else could it be' Sisters - there were never such devoted sisters
