This collection includes many songs,as well as several versions of the same song. A few have been released previously, but quite a few I haven't heard before. It's also nice to hear them sing together some of the songs they also have sung individually before. Several of the tracks include bits of what was said during the studio recording too. Good sound quality!

Until recently the lack of quality Bing Crosby releases compromised the reputation of the iconic singer/actor and made it quite difficult to honour his long career and significant impact he made on popular music. With this in mind, thanks must be accorded adventurous Collectors' Choice Music (USA) in association with Bing Crosby Enterprises, for releasing a second batch of CD's to complement the previously issued 2009 batch of latter-day rare and eclectic albums recorded by Bing during the Sixties and later.

Bing duetted with many during his long career but his Fifties friendship with Rosemary Clooney sealed a long-term professional working relationship which included the box-office movie WHITE CHRISTMAS as well as radio work together on THE BING CROSBY SHOW, THE FORD ROAD SHOW and THE CROSBY-CLOONEY SHOW. With so much shared togetherness this two-disc collection is a wonderful celebration of such radio work which commenced in 1952 and continued through the decade into the early Sixties with no less than fifty-five dazzling tracks included for ultimate enjoyment.

Their duets show how well their voices matched and being at ease it's possible to sense how much the couple enjoyed working with one another. Standards SHINE ON HARVEST MOON, IT'S ONLY A PAPER MOON, THESE FOOLISH THINGS, AIN'T WE GOT FUN and I MAY BE WRONG vie with pop numbers/show songs IT TAKES TWO TO TANGO, YOU'RE JUST IN LOVE, WHAT TAKES MY FANCY and HEY LOOK ME OVER and energise the vocal proceedings. Some studio chatter underlines the casual feel-good camaraderie of the stars and shows whilst bonus tracks give the chance for the singers to exchange songs with solo Bing offering THIS OLE HOUSE and Rosemary featuring YOU'RE IN KENTUCKY SURE AS YOU'RE BORN. John Scott Trotter or Buddy Cole generally provide accompaniment.

Whilst the digi-pack album-set is stickered as being previously unreleased, this claim obviously applies only in the USA as a few songs have surfaced on CD elsewhere. For pure enjoyment and appreciation of two singing icons, this excellent release would be hard to beat.

I love Rosemary Clooney. I like Bing Crosby. The two of them sound wonderful together. A very nice collection of songs. The sound is excellent.
