Bing Crosby – Kraft Music Hall
Whether you are a Bing Crosby fan, or simply appreciate vocalists of the past, this CD of Bing’s radio performances should prove impressive and inspiring.
Bing’s surviving radio work from this period is particularly scarce, but it isn't just rarity that makes this collection important. Here's Bing at his vocal peak, with his unerring ear, his groundbreaking singing style and his uncanny sense of timing and rhythm.
Bing's radio performances provide an additional insight into his style, combining a slightly more casual approach to his songs while remaining focused on providing a superlative rendition of any song that came his way. This was a time when he could consistently and effortlessly hit those notes that were out of reach to contemporaries and most imitators.
