iTunes Editors’ Notes

This 18-track collection gathers the best of the best of Bing Crosby’s holiday recordings onto a single disc. Drawing on his prime recording years of 1942 through 1956, it reaffirms the crooner’s status as the 20th century’s greatest interpreter of Christmas songs. The album does a fine job at balancing traditional carols with modern standards and child-friendly novelty numbers. Whether the mood is reverent (“Adeste Fideles,” “Silent Night”), inspirational (“I Hear the Bells on Christmas Day”), nostalgic (“I’ll Be Home for Christmas”), or whimsical (“Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”), Crosby infuses the material with the easygoing warmth and charm that made him a favorite for generations and continues to win him fans. The Andrews Sisters add verve and sparkle to “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town,” “Jingle Bells," and “Here Comes Santa Claus.” A restored version of Bing’s original 1942 recording of “White Christmas”—included here instead of his better-known 1947 version of the tune—is a particular highlight. Track for track, this is the most concise and satisfying Crosby Christmas package available.

the best!!

bing crosby makes christmas feel like christmas! its not the same without his music!

Bing is where it is at!

I've been scouring iTunes for Bing's version of "Christmas is Coming" and couldn't find it anywhere! It turns out that Mr. Crosby takes a little license with the spelling of song titles.

Bing got it right a long time ago. Hope you have a very merry Christmas!

Best Christmas Album EVER

this album is the ultimate christmas classic. its real music and kills people like miley cyrus and the jonas brothers who destroy these classic songs.

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...
