5.0 out of 5 stars Warm and traditional 17 Nov 2003
Format:Audio CD
Frank and Bing have such warm voices that this christmas album is ideal when sitting infront of the fire opening your christmas presents! The quality of the album is very good, and on one or two tracks you can hear the odd background noise from the old LP which adds character to the recording.
Forget all the modern christmas albums, if you want a traditional Christmas album which will warm you up on a winters day, this is it!

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice budget collection of "lesser" Crosby Christmas tunes 7 Dec 2003
By Lawrance M. Bernabo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
"Christmas with Bing Crosby" is a budget collection of holiday songs from Bing Crosby put together by CEMA. This means you only get 10 tracks by der Bingle, which is not much, and "White Christmas" is not one of them. But then you should already have that holidy classic in your movie collection. Once you get past the number of tracks and remember that this is a budget collection, then you can appreciate the nice selection of songs we have here, starting with "Do You Hear What I Hear?" I do not know what there is about Crosby's phrasing of that opening line, but to me it is the definitive version; there is just something about the way he croons that opening "Do" that seems perfect to me. There are also very good versions of "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," "The Little Drummer Boy," "I Wish You a Merry Christmas" and "O Holy Night." There are also a trio of nice medleys, including "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing/It Came Upon a Midnight Clear." Obviously there is not quantity here, but it is hard to complain about the quality, especially at this price. There are bigger and better Bing Crosby Christmas albums out there for his die-hard fans, but this one is excellent for a budget album aimed at der Bingle's more casual fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fine beginning 25 April 2004
By Candace Scott - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This CD leaves out many of Bing's best Christmas songs, but for someone just sampling his holiday material, this is fine. Christmas time means Crosby will be on the airwaves, soundwaves and in your blood again. Bing was an eclectic singer who dabbled extensively in many genres of music: Hawaiian, Irish, cowboy songs and of course, Christmas music, which is showcased here. This is an excellent introduction for those who don't have other Crosby CD's in your collection or who want to hear his "holiday" side. It contains his standard hits which have been recycled time and again on other anthologies. Most Bing-ologists will have all these songs in their collection, some of them many times over. But if you are new to Crosby, this is an acceptable choice and I guarantee that you will become hooked on Bing's magnificent voice. It's quite weak on his earlier work and it does contain some curious omissions, but then again, Bing didn't sing Christmas music much until the early 1940's. Yet there are some stellar songs included as well, like one of personal favorites, "Let it Snow," One of his greatest recordings.
For the novice Crosby-Christmas fan, this set is perfect for several reasons: not only does it give you a fine overview of Bing's career, the sound quality is exceptional. The packaging of the set is excellent and it even includes some nicely written liner notes with a synopsis of Bing's Christmas songs and musical style, as well as an explanation of his tremendous musical impact upon the 20th century.
Other reviewers have complained about the sound quality on this set. I am puzzled at this criticism. I have most of these songs on casette, vinyl and some even on their original 78 and 45 issues. The sound quality here is quite acceptable and good on most tracks. This set will give you many hours of enjoyable listening and help you branch off into other Crosby CD's which includes his lesser-known vocals. Hopefully this collection will convince you that Bing's vocal mastery was unparalled. Then you can sample his earlier, jazz-influenced work during his Columbia years in the early 30's and branch off into his 20's work with the Rhythm Boys. But for the beginning Crosby listener, this is as good a choice as any. I highly recommend this set.

5.0 out of 5 stars An exceptional colletion 11 Dec 2007
By Fred Camfield - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the best collections by a single artist. It is a steal at Amazon's listed price, and something to add into an order. It is an exceptionally well produced CD, with a backup chorus and some instuments. Mainly it is Bing Crosby. As noted by a previous reviewer, it does not include White Christmas (which can be found on many other CDs). This selection tends more towards traditional carols. The 10 selections include three medleys. The content is listed by Amazon.
5.0 out of 5 stars Christmas 6 April 2014

If you are a Christmas lover like me and love the "real old time" Christmas music you will love this cd! It's just not Christmas without it.
5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Christmas Album 19 Dec 2013
By Brent Butler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
While the selections on this album mysteriously do NOT include White Christmas, if you have ANY other Bing Crosby albums, including a Greatest Hits album, you have that song in your collection.

This album does have a great selection of songs that exhibit Bing's perfect pitch, broad range, and resonant tones. While these are older recordings, they sound flawless, with no distortion or other flaws to detract from the great music.

There are a couple of songs here that you don't see very often: Christmas Dinner, Country Style and While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks by Night.

There's always room for one more Crosby Christmas album in every collection. He simply had one of the greatest voices and performing styles ever for a male vocalist, and the appreciation of that fact is evidenced by his strong popularity for almost a hundred years now.

Highly recommended.
