Bing Crosby was undoubtedly the most important name in pop vocal history. Bing was the performer who really dragged the genre of popular singing out of the megaphone age and onto the record players of the world at large. He loved making records, way back in 1931 he commenced his solo chart career with an array of hits that included four of the biggest selling records of the year, and from then on just continued delivering sounds that kept record pressing plants fully employed. He could sing anything, from downright novelty material through to highgrade jazz. And he made it all sound classy. This three-disc collection features the very best recorded material of an all time great. Stand out tracks include ‘Well, Did You Evah!’ (with Frank Sinatra), ‘Play A Simple Melody’ (with Gary Crosby), ‘There’s No Business Like Show Business’ (with The Andrews Sisters and Dick Haymes) and the holiday classic ‘White Christmas’ plus many more.
