11902 - Everything Bing Crosby Christmas 

Everything Bing Crosby for Christmas is a collection of Christmas music sung by one of the most beloved of crooners in American music. You will find his best-known songs along with some rare ones. Some of the rarest included in this set are:
  • Frank Sinatra and Bing singing "The Snowman" which, even though not of the best sound quality, is fun and great to have in your Bing collection.
  • One of the most popular Christmas songs, "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer", is sung by three different female singers--Ella Fitzgerald, Judy Garland, and Gloria Wood. Each version is quite different from the others and lots of fun to listen to.
  • Another rare track is taken from a skit done on Bing Crosby's Chesterfield Show in 1949 featuring the great Jimmy Stewart. He was reputed to have been very shy. Bing and Jimmy have fun acting out and singing Jimmy's engagement speech to his new bride Gloria Hatrick. They end by singing "Baby, It's Cold Outside". This may be the first CD collection that has the entire radio skit and I think you will love it.
  • A lively version of "Jingle Bells" as aired on Bing's 1946 Chesterfield Christmas show will get you tapping your toes.
  • Peggy Lee had on of her first hits with the song "Manana". On her December 1949 visit to Bing's Chesterfield Show, she made up new Christmas lyrics for it, and sang it with Bing. Again this may be the first collection that includes this track.
  • We also have included "Here Comes Santa Claus" with Peggy Lee from the 1949 show.
  • From the 1968 Christmas TV special, the song "Christmas Glow Worm", sung with Dorothy Collins, is here.
  • A song that does not appear in any list of Bing's Christmas songs that we could find is included. It was attributed to Bing Crosby and Perry Como and titled "Santa Claus (Is Here to Pay a Call)". It certainly sounds like Bing Crosby but I cannot be positive about the other voice being that of Perry Como. You can hear it for yourself here and judge. It is a fun song and fits in nicely in this set.
  • "Christmas Candles" is a beautiful love song for the season and hard to find in other collections.
Taken from radio recordings, shellac and vinyl records, and television shows, this collection spans Bing's entire career. If you are a Bing Crosby fan, or if you just want some lovely Christmas music to get you into the holiday mood, you will find this collection is something that you will want to play and keep for many years to come.
