Bing-baby was the ultimate crooner.
VERY GOOD collection of 50 songs by born in Tacoma, then moved to Spokane, Wally nicknamed "Bing" Crosby. His lower baritone voice, coupled with the advent of microphones so singers didn't have to LOUDLY project to back of auditorium venues, gave rise to one of the greatest male singing acts/styles. Bing is generally included along with Frank Sinatra as 'crooners', a term which for some reason became pejorative in early '30s.
Lots of great songs in this compilation. My favorites include 'I Found a Million Dollar Baby (In a 5 and 10 Cent Store' and 'Pistol Packin' Mama' with Andrews Sisters.
Decca Records was the record label for Bing Crosby during his prime. Fifty songs with Crosby singing alone, with such groups as the Andrew Sisters, Louis Armstrong, and a host of others. Bing Crosby sang so effortlessly and was great at duets. Some of the songs are in fun and are quite amusing. Bing Crosby is one of our own having been born in Tacoma. The house where he lived has a small marker identifying the house.
Of course, he was in league with Satchmo and Ella and Sinatra when it comes to vinyl outputs (not to mention their classic qualities)...and these are his quintessential recordings including duets with Bob Hope, the Andrews Sisters among many. He might not be that known compared to Sinatra among those still "living" but he is among those great in the jazz and pop musical pantheon.
