Includes Bing's timeless classic "White Christmas" and more!

Who won the first Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award? Bing Crosby. Who introduced more songs on film nominated for the Best Song Oscar (14) than anyone? Bing Crosby. Who was the first multi-media superstar--records, radio, TV and movies? Bing Crosby.

"Try to forget the fact that Bing Crosby probably never had to record another song in his life after he immortalized 'White Christmas.' If you can do that, you'll find plenty more to like in this crooning Christmas collection. There's the Romantic Bing, charming the tinsel right off the tree with "The Christmas Song," and that cure for cabin fever, "Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!" There's the Reverent Bing, solemnly singing 'Adeste Fideles.' But no matter what you're told, 'White Christmas' will be the number one reason for sticking this one in your stocking. And who can blame you? It's as timeless now as it was way back when." — Amazon.com

Excellent reissue. Vocals are clean and clear. And there's a good even balance between vocals and orchestrations. Bing's voice is rich and full across the entire LP. Rate this right up there with my NM 50's MONO Decca label original vinyl - that has always been my go-to even though I own several variations in both vinyl and CD. No info on who remastered but there is Mastered by Capitol in the deadwax. But whomever did it - did a good job. And most surprising - for a GEFFEN reissue - dead quiet vinyl. No ticks. No pops! I did clean it before playing as there was alot of static and "white" debris from the inner sleeve. Overall, very happy with this reissue, and enjoying the richness of Bing's voice on this iconic Christmas LP.
