Editors’ Notes

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!

Great

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.

Like Buttah...

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.

Biography

Genre: Classics

Bing Crosby was, without doubt, the most popular and influential media star of the first half of the 20th century. The undisputed best-selling artist until well into the rock era (with over half a billion records in circulation), the most popular radio star of all time, and the biggest box-office draw of the 1940s, Crosby dominated the entertainment world from the Depression until the mid-'50s, and proved just as influential as he was popular. Unlike the many vocal artists before him, Crosby grew...
