  • Liner Note Author: Ken Barnes.
  • This beautifully packaged Bing Crosby box set is divided into three parts. The first disc features Crosby in radio performances with Nat "King" Cole and the Andrews Sisters. Disc two documents broadcasts with Crosby, Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong, and, finally, the third disc features additional Crosby collaborations with Fitzgerald and Armstrong, as well as two performances with the Mills Brothers.
  • One of the highlights on this collection is the second rendition of "Memphis Blues," a tune Crosby shares with Fitzgerald and Armstrong. Here, the rapport between the three singers is relaxed and lighthearted, and Armstrong even causes the studio audience to crack up during one of his verses. "Basin Street Blues" is another wonderful example of the simpatico between Crosby and Fitzgerald. At Crosby's request, Fitzgerald imitates Armstrong to the bemusement of the audience, and Red Nichols takes a superbly bluesy cornet solo on this tune, as well. (Not surprisingly, Nichols's playing is very influenced by the swampy, New Orleans approach of Armstrong.) Cole Porter's hit "Don't Fence Me In" is another high point; this song combines 1940s swing with a Western feel (a la Gene Autry), and the Andrews Sisters' rich three-part harmonies add great depth to this selection. Of course, it's Crosby's debonair voice that ultimately steals the show.
