CD Reviews

Bing rules!
Candace Scott | Lake Arrowhead, CA, USA | 07/07/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"What a marvelous compilation of Bing's early recordings, many of which are hard to obtain, unless you have the Jonzo series on LP. The two discs allow listeners to sample Bing's different styles and hear the innovation he introduced into popular music. It's too little stated, but it's too true: without Bing, there would have been no Sinatra. Two highlights here are "I'm Hummin', I'm Whistlin', I'm Singin'" and "Just An Echo In The Valley." Neither are given the ink they deserve and both vividly show the amazing vocal range Crosby had. When he hits those high notes and holds them it sends shivers up your spine.This is a great introduction to those new to Bing Crosby and a welcome addition to more seasoned Crosbyphiles."

"The films from 1930-36 from which these songs were taken include:"King of Jazz," "Reaching for the Moon," "Confessions of a Co-ed," "The Big Broadcast," "College Humor," "Too Much Harmony," "Going Hollywood," "We're not Dressing," "She Loves me not," "Here is my Heart," "Mississippi," "Two for Tonight," "The Big Broadcast of 1936." Bing was best during these years, I believe. Check out "Hollywood Rhythm," a collection of video shorts made in the 1930s too. It has a great short of Bing getting involved with a gal he's never met, who claims to be his fiance. It's where he does "Where the Blue of the night meets the gold of the day." Cheers!"
Bing: A big voice for the big screen

"If you're a Bing fan, you'll want to own this one. Bing was never in finer voice than in the early-to-mid 1930s, and he's at his best here. What other singer had his great range and and power? Some come close, but they can't eclipse Mr. Crosby. All of his songs resonate with glowing warmth and charm. The best part of this fine collection are the hard-to-find titles. My personal favorite was "Our Big Love Scene," which is truly under-heard and definitely one of his best. There are a lot of fun novelty songs too including "Boo Boo Boo" and "Bucking the Wind." This two-CD set is chalk full of wonderful stuff. It's well worth the money. Happy listening!"
