The most amenable pairing of comic actors and musicians during Hollywood's golden era, Bing Crosby and Bob Hope recorded a lot of material together, not just on film but in the recording studio. Unfortunately, only one example appears on the Universal compilation Two of a Kind. The first five tracks are solo Crosby hits ("Pennies From Heaven," "Too Marvelous for Words") and the subsequent four are Hope duets with Shirley Ross (including his signature, "Thanks for the Memories"); only the closer "Put It There, Pal," a Road picture warhorse, features both singing the same song.
