A Lot of Bing for the Money 14 Oct. 2009
By Mucho Music - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Though I have an extensive collection of Bing Crosby recordings, I couldn't resist trying out
a low-priced 10-CD set entitled "Bing Crosby." UPC 4011222325426,
released November 2008 according to the info at Amazon.com. Amazon lists the
title as "Bing Crosby Collection." (Amazon UK lists it as "Black Moonlight.")
The cover art is a photo of Bing in a suit. The 10 CDs contain recordings from
1928 - 1954.

The online listing at Amazon cites "Phantom Sound and Vision" as the label. The
packaging and CD labels, though, indicate Membran Music Ltd. (a German company)
as the manufacturer and distributor. Various other organization logos are MCPS
and Document are imprinted on the CD.

Packaging: The 10 CDs are enclosed in a cardboard box with a fold up top. Good
enough. Each CD is in a cardboard sleeve. The track lists include the song
titles, songwriting credits, accompaniment, the year originally issued, and the
timing for each track. A list of all tracks also is printed on the bottom of the
outer box.

Liner notes: none, apart from recording credits.

Sound quality: though this is not a deluxe set, I would rate the sound of the
early recordings as good. Not as quiet, transparent or dynamic as the best you
can find elsewhere, but more than acceptable overall. The later studio tracks
have very good sound considering these probably were transferred from commercial
78s and LPs. The audio quality of the radio tracks ranges from not so good to pretty good.

Contents:

The first three CDs are 3 volumes of "Early Bing." 1928 - 1934. The set gets off
to a shaky start as it places "Cabin in the Cotton" on CD1, track 1, and lists
the original issue year as 1925. (In fact it was 1932.) i didn't find other such
errors, but then I wasn't looking for them.

CD4 is titled "The King of Jazz (1930)." Even though the material ranges from
1930-1933. It may be that these are songs he sang in his films of that time.

CD5 is "The Dance Band Days," 1930 and 1931. The first 13 tracks are with
accompaniment by Gus Arnheim and the Cocoanut Grove Orchestra. Most of the rest
are with Victor Young and His Orchestra.

CD6 is 24 tracks of Hawaiian songs, probably the most ever assembled on one CD.
(The Decca reissue "My favorite Hawaiian Songs" has just 10 tracks.)

CD7 and CD8 contain a total of 50 tracks from The Bing Crosby Autobiography set
released by Decca in 1954. 49 of the 89 tracks of that Decca LP set were
re-recordings of his early hits, accompanied by the Buddy Cole Trio and a few
other studio groups. Most - if not all - of those are here, along with some of
the earlier originals. It's hard to tell, because 1954 is listed as the date
for all tracks. The two CDs contain 50 songs plus separate tracks for the
spoken introduction of each track - a nice feature for those who want to
create a playlist of just music.

CD9 is "Bing and the Dixieland Bands." Bob Haggart, Matty Matlock, Red Nichols,
Bob Crosby, and John Scott Trotter are leaders of the groups on this disc. The
majority of the tracks are somewhat-to-noticeably muffled (less high frequency
content) and compressed, probably taken from transcriptions of Bing's radio
show. With no liner notes, who knows? Still, all enjoyable.

CD10 wraps it up with "Bing Crosby and the Andrews Sisters," 1939 - 1952.
Considering that the 1996 2-CD Decca set "Bing Crosby & the Andrews Sisters:
Their Complete Recordings Together" is out of print and $$$$, these 24 tracks
are a pretty good consolation.

Conclusion:
A lot of Bing for the money, thoughtfully programmed, and with good sound
quality. Lack of liner notes a bummer, but I suppose that goes with the low
price. An excellent overview of Bing's career at a bargain price,
likely to appeal most to those just starting to build a Crosby collection.
Decent Collection for the Price 22 Dec. 2012
By David Herrin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is an excellent fill-in-the-gaps collection. You should probably get either the "Legendary Years" or the Proper Box "It's Easy to Remember" first. There is very little overlap between this collection and those with the more popular tunes. This collection does a nice job of filling in the gaps from his early 30's work. Discs 4 (King of Jazz) and 5 (Dance Band Days) are terrific and the sound quality is quite good. This is probably as good of a collection of Early Bing as you will find.
