You'd be hard-pressed to find a better introduction to the music of Bing Crosby than this 12-track best-of, part of MCA's 20th Century Masters Millennium Collection. All the major biggies are aboard, covering a time frame from 1944 to 1957 ("Swingin' on a Star," "White Christmas," "Don't Fence Me In," "Dear Hearts and Gentle People," "MacNamara's Band," "It's Been a Long, Long Time," "Pennies from Heaven") as well as other highlights from that period ("Far Away Places," a duet with son Gary on "Play a Simple Melody," and the theme song from "Around the World (In Eighty Days)"). Not everything that's essential to digging Crosby, but a darn good start.
