When Der Bingle was just Bing
Review By NS94944,March 2011

Music lovers who groan at the mere thought of Bing Crosby, the overweight balding golf-playing millionaire who often sang flat, a parody of himself, should listen to this classic compilation of some of his early recordings made shortly after he left the Paul Whiteman band and went out on his own.

Not only does he sing in tune but with a thoroughly captivating youthful exuberance and delicious jazz phrasing. In these early days Bing had an amazingly rich and beautiful baritone capable of all sorts of variation, which he uses to deliver the words and music to these popular songs of the 1930s with absolute conviction. Listen and you will understand why this young man became one the biggest stars of Paramount Pictures and on radio... and yes, a millionaire many times over!
