As a recording artist at least, I suspect Bing Crosby has become something of a forgotten figure. This is a shame, because Der Bingle, as he was once affectionately known, possessed one of the most glorious male voices of mid-20th Century popular music. Crosby's vocals warbled, crooned and swung, moving easily from high and playful to deep and profound, from bouncy jazz to brooding hymns. Borrow this one for Bing's signature versions of "O Holy Night," "Do You Hear What I Hear" and, of course, "White Christmas," the Irving Berlin instant classic he debuted in the 1942 musical "Holiday Inn."

Give this disc a listen also for "Peace On Earth/The Little Drummer Boy," Crosby's eyebrow raising 1977 duet with, of all people, Mr. Space Oddity himself, David Bowie. In the seventies Bowie was at his most flamboyant, steeped in glam rock/bisexual chic mystique. Who in the world thought to put these two artists of such wildly divergent style and reputation in a room together, let alone unite them to record a Christmas carol??? It boggled the mind! Yet somehow... it worked.
