CD Reviews

Crosby's mellow baritone put's even Sinatra to shame.
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I grew up on lps of Crosby's even though he was dead before I was born. His mellow voice and clever turns of phrase puts to mind the green and beautiful countryside of Ireland. His rendition of Danny Boy cuts to the heart and would make a stone cry. Even though there was not an option to hear the Irish Eyes are Smiling song, I have heard him sing it before and can only imagine the lilting quality he puts into it. He will always be ahead of any other male performer of his era, my book."
Great Bargain

"Bing Crosby grew up listening to the classic Irish Tenors like McDermott as well as early jazz. The results heard on this short collection show Crosby as uniquely qualified to present the best of both worlds. Crosby approached all the songs with a very relaxed and uniquely American delivery which retained the warm round tones of the Irish tenors. Crosby's vocal approach here is straightforward and he delivers the ballads with superb emotional restraint..."Danny Boy" is gently touching and not the least bit overwrought (many singers have a tendency to overdo the classic Irish lament). Crosby defined the popular Irish-American songbook with these gems. It's as much Brooklyn as County Clare, and great music. My only criticism here is that the cd could use more substantial documentation and maybe liner notes. I guess that helped keep the price down on this great bargain cd. The music is first rate and offers a wonderful window on Irish-American culture in the 40's and 50's."
