Released in 2006, The Definitive Collection takes on the difficult feat of surveying Bing Crosby’s recording catalog in a 22-song collection. Though one might quibble over individual song choices, the album succeeds at touching on the highlights of his prime recording years from the '30s through the ‘50s. Early hits like “Where the Blue of the Night Meets the Gold of the Day” (the theme of his popular radio show), “Stardust,” and “Pennies from Heaven” capture the gentle suavity that first made Crosby a star. His easygoing way with Western songs is represented by “Home on the Range” and “Don’t Fence Me In,” while “Blue Hawaii” and “Sweet Leilani” offer a taste of his love for tropical tunes. “Road to Morocco” (a duet with Bob Hope), “Swinging on a Star,” and the immortal “White Christmas” recall Crosby’s numerous roles on screen. From misty-eyed Celtic numbers like “Too-Ra-Loo-Ral (That’s an Irish Lullaby)” to smoothly crooned ballads like “It’s Been a Long, Long Time” and jazzy excursions like “Ol’ Man River,” the full range of Der Bingle’s legendary career is reflected here.
No Doubt, It's Love
His voice is amazing. It's like listening to a lullabye. I'm so bummed the rat pack era is over. Can you imagine what it would be like? Swing dancing, snazzy hats, music with rythm? hah! I don't know how we could've traded all of that in for freak dancing, bling bling, and rap. But history repeats itself right? Maybe eventually we'll bring back the good times.
Bing Crosby Is a great mind and has an amazing voice. If only the children of these days could realize it's all enhansed with equitment, while his voice, as well as his brothers, Bob Crosby, isn't.
Looooove Bing. His voice is like velvet, if you've never really heard his music, I highly recommend taking a listen. You will not be sorry. And, while you're at it-watch some of his movies!! They're great (veer away from the standard White Christmas (my fav Xmas movie), try The Bells of St. Mary, Going My Way, etc.
