AllMusic Review by

Included on this Blue Moon disc are some of Bing Crosby's best duets, from both his radio show and studio recordings. The 22-song track list includes well-known favorites such as "Hot Time in the Town of Berlin," "Don't Fence Me In," "Accentuate the Positive," and "Pistol Packin' Mama" with the Andrews Sisters; "Gone Fishin'" with Louis Armstrong; "Road to Morocco" and "Road to Bali" with Bob Hope; and "Small Fry" with Johnny Mercer. Also appearing are more obscure titles, like "In the Cool of the Evening" with Jane Wyman, "Merry-Go-Run-Around" with Bob Hope and Peggy Lee, "Sam's Song" with Bing's brother Gary, and "Yah-Ta-Ta" with Judy Garland. The mix of old favorites and rarer sides provides a good balance, and this disc is recommended.
