5.0 out of 5 stars An Incomparable Crosby Collection ! 3 Mar 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If you're looking for a collection that best represents the great Bing Crosby, this outstanding 3-CD set is an absolute must.
The fact that this is late period Crosby ( 1974-'76 ) is no cause for alarm. The famous voice had lost none of its resonance,he handles ballads with all of the skill and aplomb of his earlier years and the rhythm tracks are an absolute joy.
Apart from offering every commercial studio title that he recorded for the United Artists label ( not forgetting the two tracks he did with Bob Hope in the late '50s added to complete the collection ), this set also includes some magic live performances from his legendary 50th Anniversary Concert at the London Palladium ( which were not included on his CD of that event ). So what we have here is Bing at his best with the finest orchstral accompaniments of his career ( arranged and conducted by the wonderful Pete Moore ) in some of his finest solo recordings ( "Children" - " The Woman On Your Arm," "Cabaret," " The More I See You" etc.etc. ) plus memorable and highly enjoyable duets with Fred Astaire, Johnny Mercer and,of course, Bob Hope. And as if that weren't enough, we get some hilarious - and previously unreleased - studio out-takes listed as "Session Sound Bites " The auio quality throughout is magnificent - making these the best technical achievements of Crosby's career. No exaggeration ! Put all this together with a superb and meticulously detailed booklet crammed with terrific photos and you have the perfect Crosby package. And all at an unbelievable bargan price. In short, this is an essential collector's item that stands up to many repeated playings. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some of the best material of Crosby that's available 13 Feb 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This set of recordings is at the top of my list of material by Bing Crosby. First-rate sound. First-rate material. And Crosby sounds as good as ever. Even though these songs were put on tape 25 years ago, they sound as if they recorded in the last 12 months. It you're going to have only on set of CD's by Bing, this is the set to get.

5.0 out of 5 stars KING BING "The Complete UA Sessions" 8 May 2004
By Tony G. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
"Bing Crosby: The Complete United Artists Sessions" is a magnificent compilation of the great entertainer's work for that label. Packaged within 3 compact discs are the albums "That's What Life Is All About" (1975), "At My Time Of Life" and "Beautiful Memories" (both 1976). Also included is the 1975 album "A Couple Of Song And Dance Men" which reunited Bing with his co-star of the Irving Berlin musicals "Holiday Inn" and "Blue Skies", Fred Astaire. On top of all that, the set also includes selections from the 1976 release "Bing Crosby: Live At The London Palladium", two duets from the late 1950s with fellow "Road" companion Bob Hope and some previously unreleased studio session chatter between Bing and producers, technicians, etc. while working on the UA albums represented here. Mr. Crosby may have been in the twilight of his career on these albums and his range may not have been what it once was, but his vocals are as beautiful as ever. His croon has a resonance and soothing sound that few vocalists have ever, EVER been able to duplicate. Whether he's singing reflective songs ("That's What Life Is All About", "No Time At All") or hits of the '70s ("The Way We Were", "Send In The Clowns") or classics ("Great Day", "I Got Rhythm"), King Bing conquers all and leaves pretenders to the throne in the dust. Bing Crosby remains one of the greatest natural entertainers who ever graced our world and this superb set is proof positive of that!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 3 CD set! 27 Dec 2002
By cduk2001 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This set contains all of Bing's recordings on the United Artists label between 1974 and 1976. Recorded mainly in the UK the sound quality of all tracks is first rate.The booklet contains full details of all tracks including date and place of recording. Although Bing was in the autumn of his years, his voice sounds rich and clear. There is also the added pleasure of Rosemary Clooney and Fred Astaire on cd 2. This cd will appeal to both Bing fans and fans of great songs and great singing!. Bing even carries off some of the "new" songs of the period including "The Way We Were" and "What I Did For Love".Buy this cd, it's a pleasure to listen to.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bing triumphant throughout, but why use inferior alternate takes? 24 Oct 2006
By El Comandante - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
First off: Grab it while you can! This is essential Bing, rejuvenated vocally, artistically and commercially for these 1970s sessions, elegantly produced by Ken Barnes - who seemed to have a magic touch with veteran performers. (Check out Ken's other LPs from this period with Johnny Mercer and Fred Astaire.) Unfortunately, you had to do some real sleuthing to find these in US record stores during the 1970s. (During the 1974-76 period covered here, Sinatra was hardly recording, Bennett was struggling to get his short-lived Improv label off the ground, and stores had virtually zero interest in carrying what is now revered as "classic pop.") If you weren't able to get the original United Artists LPs, this 3-CD set will do nicely. I do have qualms about the amount of "new", alternate material being remixed into the original tracks. To my ear, none of the inserts (sometimes little more than an 8-bar phrase or less by Bing here and there) equal, much less surpass, the original choices Barnes made for the UA LP issues. "Looking at You" is especially harmed by the use of lesser Bing, as are some of the Bing-Astaire duets ("Pick Yourself Up"). The good news is that the bonus material (outtakes from Bing's historic appearance at the London Palladium, or studio chatter) is highly entertaining. "The Complete United Artists Sessions," while not precisely a substitute for the original UA recordings, is a must-have just the same. Combine this with "Feels Good, Feels Right" and "Seasons" for a picture of just how dedicated and truly great Bing Crosby was during his final years.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Of Bing 7 Aug 2004
By Christopher Bales - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have always enjoyed Bing Crosby's rich and deep basso-baritone voice, but I sometimes found some of his earlier recordings' sound quality annoying. When I found this set on Amazon, I ordered it right away, and now that I have it, I very seldom stop playing it. All of his duets with Fred Astaire are excellent, and the live recordings and re-recordings of his music are all incredible. However, what I like even more is the then-modern music covers. With songs like 'I'll Never Fall In Love Again', and 'What I Did For Love' he showed that no matter what the era, no matter what the material, he could master it. Frank Sinatra did the same thing with excellent results, though Bing often employed more modern sounding instuments including distorted guitars and electric bass. It is very different than the classic Crosby that most are used to. However, the set is priced extremely well and I reccommend it to anyone that likes Bing Crosby, or to anyone who simply enjoys great repeated-listening music.
