Rose Brennan A Tall, Dark Stranger CD
29 TRACKS on 1 CD
A vastly underrated singer, Dublin-born ROSE BRENNAN might have been a major star had she gone solo, rather than remaining a band singer with Joe Loss & his Orchestra. After recording prolifically with Loss during the early 50s, she recorded a few mainstream pop records, enjoying a UK hit in 1961 with the self-penned Tall Dark Stranger, which sounded as if it might have come from the soundtrack of a John Ford western. Rose quit the Joe Loss Orchestra in the mid-60s, to run a public house with her husband, ending her singing career. This CD covers recordings from her earliest 78s with Joe Loss in 1952; and, as far as we know, it is the very first dedicated Rose Brennan compilation.
