At this point in his career Bing had recorded several highly orchestrated pop/easy listening hits. He was thrilled that the CBS radio show finally gave him the opportunity to sing the music he enjoyed. I haven’t heard that much of it but what I’ve heard is pretty great.
So far I’ve only found two videos for this set on You Tube. They have identical Power Point slide shows which feature a photo of Bing in Black face. Charming! Tomorrow’s tweet is about Bing too so I’ll post one of them then. Today is Christmas and the subject is Bing Crosby. Since we’re going to be hearing a lot from Bing over the next couple of days, I’m going with one last Christmas number today. Here’s Bing Crosby and David Bowie doing “Little Drummer Boy”
I wish everyone peace, and love. And for those inclined, Merry Christmas!
Here’s a bonus video to give you a taste of the actual music I wanted to post. It’s Bing and Buddy Cole on piano doing “It Had To Be You.”
