David Rose (June 15, 1910 – August 23, 1990) was an American songwriter, composer, arranger, pianist, and orchestra leader. His best known compositions were "The Stripper", "Holiday for Strings", and "Calypso Melody". He also wrote music for many television series, including It's a Great Life, The Tony Martin Show, Little House on the Prairie, Highway to Heaven, Bonanza, and Highway Patrol under the pseudonym "Ray Llewellyn. Rose's work as a composer for television programs earned him four Emmys
Rose charted a half-dozen instrumental hits during his MGM period, including the 1962 chart-topper "The Stripper. Rose also scored with "Like Young," a collaboration with pianist André Previn, and "Swinging Shepherd Blues," which was one of three charting renditions of that tune in 1958. The "Holiday for Strings" that appears here is not the hit rendition from 1943, but a 1950 remake. The four Western themes huddled on the second half completely change the tone of the album, which up to that point plays like (and is) a miscellany of singles. Suddenly, after experiencing a romantic calypso holiday in space, the listener finds himself or herself in the Wild West for the remainder of the program. Even the appearance of "The Stripper" in this context isn't much of a change of pace, and evokes the dance of a ruffled saloon girl in a dusty cowboy watering hole.

This David Rose version of "The Stripper" remains the anthem for that kind of bluesy music.
