AllMusic Review by

Before Frank Sinatra or Elvis Presley, the quintessential American singer was Bing Crosby. From the 1920s on, Crosby wrapped his smooth, debonair baritone around a dizzying assortment of songs--Tin Pan Alley pop, Irish songs, jazz, country, Hawaiian, et al. By 1958, Ol' Blue Eyes and Elvis had superceded him on the charts, yet Crosby was still an icon. Lending his genial, mellow voice (both singing and narrating) to this collection of children’s nursery rhymes, JACK B. NIMBLE proves these ancient fables to be timeless.
