AllMusic Review by

The first box set covering Bing Crosby, this three-disc CBS release appeared in 1988 with good remastering across its 65 tracks, numerous alternate takes, and a fabulous job on the liner notes, with anecdotes about each of the offerings. Although the material is all pre-Decca and a bit inferior to much of his later output, CBS put together a good package for collectors and aficionados. Unfortunately, the box became out of print by the mid-'90s.
