A very cut-rate quality compilation indeed

"This entire CD is rechanneled stereo (bad news for audiophiles), but these 12 songs are among his signature songs and is an OK overview for those who don't want a multi-disc overview although a much better single disc overview of his hits is "Bing's Gold Records" which remains in print and available right here at Amazon.com. This compilation was originally released as an LP on MCA in 1977 and some of the songs, aside from "White Christmas" that are on it include "Pistol Packin' Mama" (with the Andrews Sisters), "Don't Fence Me In," (with the Andrews Sisters), his versions of "I Surrender, Dear" and "Blue Skies," "Deep In The Heart of Texas," "Swinging on a Star," "Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive," (with the Andrews Sisters) and others but all of the songs on the disc are great. The best thing about the disc is indeed the price. The song selection could have been better though."
