"While Bing Crosby doesn't sing his hits on this CD, he does sing some incredible songs. Bing uses his powerful, magnificent voice to sing terrific numbers such as "The Very Thought of You," "Temptation," and "Let me Call You Sweetheart." Once again, if you are a fan of these and the other love standards on this CD, and you know how great the typical Bing Crosby CD is, then you should at least consider getting this one."
A fine sampling of ballads from Bing's early jazz period

"Bing Crosby in the early 1930's was as much a jazz singer as Louis Armstrong, however most remeber his as the pipe smoking Christmas crooner of the 40's-50's, and the dumb novelty songs he sang with the Andrews Sisters. Well this is the hip Bing, the one with the black prasing in his voice, and although he doesn't scat liek he does on Dinah or Sweet Georgia Brown, he is stil la fine jazz singer even on lush ballads like Love Thy Neighbor, Love In Bloom, May I, and It Must Be True. Bing's vocie is commanding, rich, rhythmic, and romantic. You can hear Louis Armstrong's influence, that rasp in Bing's voice that he only had in the 20's and early 30's. This is a fine sampling of early jazz Bing, singing ballads."
