"I thought this was great!Bing and Fred teamed one last time, and obviously having a ball. The songs bring a smile to my face, and their voices warm the soul. Most of the songs are upbeat, and are great while driving around. I own many recordings by both these artists, and this is one of my favorites."

"Nothing wrong with the performances here, Bing and Fred not at their 1930's "best", but exhibiting the savvy and know-how that is delightful to hear. yes, the arrangements are a little dated in a "70's" sort of way, but it was recorded in 1975, so what do you expect? My biggest complaint is simply that I hate these hatchet-job re-issues of complete works. If you want ALL the songs from the 1975 Crosby-Astaire sessions, you're better off getting Bing's box-set "The Complete United Artists Sessions", containing not only this complete album but all of Bing's 1975-76 work for the label. Truly, a beautiful "last hurrah" for one of the geniuses of the 20th century."
