KOSMO's VINYL of the Week:
This week we're somewhere in immigrant USA, in the summer of 1951 for Rosemary Clooney's "Come On A My House"...
"It not being a hit in the UK, I discovered this in the early 1980s on one of those pre rock'n'roll "Hits of the 50s" compilations. I always felt that it had a slightly demented/manic quality about it and I've since learned that Rosemary (actor George's "auntie") absolutely detested the song and was forced to record it by Mitch Miller, which only fans the flames. Also turns out to be co-written by a broke William Saroyan in 1939! For some reason - unknown to me - Rosie has a mural in Cincinnati, Ohio, on (of course) the side of a house." - KV
