Bing's final album, originally released in 1977, has never been available on CD, let alone with 14 bonus tracks. This deluxe edition features the original 12 tracks plus Bing's very last recordings, made at a BBC session three days before his death, and five poems recorded for fan clubs but never distributed.

No, this isn't the Crosby of your favorite Christmas songs, but one of advanced age following major lung surgery, but amazingly, Bing turns in a strong performance, even if his high end is more airy, his rich baritone is still there.
The cd includes some great BBC recordings (including his very last) and even the poetry readings are enjoyable if at least once.
Highlights are September Song, Summerwind, the opener Seasons - his own "My Way," as well as the closing number When I Was Young, a perfect end to a long recording career.
The sound here is great too - a faithful reproduction of the vinyl.
Overall, this is a very enjoyable album - a fitting closing chapter.
