Volume 5 of the Bing Crosby Through the Years series features the 28 commercial tracks recorded by Bing Crosby in chronological order between February and November 1953.
Among the tracks are four featured in Bing’s film Little Boy Lost - Cela M’est Egal, The Magic Window, Violets And Violins and A Propos De Rien.
Also included are eight tracks Bing recorded in France, Le Bing - Song Hits of Paris was Bing’s first LP and one of the first ever concept albums. Bing sings such French favourites as Mademoiselle De Paris, La Mer and La Vie En Rose in French.
Changing Partners was at the time a big hit for Patti Page and Bing covered it. His version reached No. 13 in the USA charts and in the UK it went higher to the No. 9 spot.
Two numbers Bing recorded with his son Gary are heard here - What A Little Moonlight Can Do and Down By The Riverside, the latter charting briefly reaching No. 28.
