The Rose Of Washington Square

By Fanny Brice

Very Good Condition

2012 two CD collection. Fanny Brice is considered one of the first torch singers, with her signature rendition of the standard "My Man", which she premiered in the Ziegfeld Follies of 1921 and went on to eventually receive the posthumous Hall of Fame Award. Beginning with a career in burlesque and vaudeville at the age of 16, Fanny ended her 43 year career on the radio performing for nearly 20 years as Baby Snooks on the popular the Baby Snooks Show which aired right up until her death in 1951. Three films have been made about her life: 1939's Rose of Washington Square with Alice Faye and Tyrone Power, Funny Girl with Barbra Streisand and Omar Shariff, and Funny Lady again with Barbra Streisand with James Caan. Although a singing sensation for a dozen years in the Ziegfeld Follies and Various Billy Rose productions, only a handful of recordings exist of Fanny - all of them gathered here. Jasmine.
