Description:
British reissue label Sepia Records' series of albums chronicling Bing Crosby's commercial recordings reaches its sixth volume here (that's after it picked up from Jonzo Records' 51-volume series The Chronological Bing Crosby), presenting 29 tracks recorded between December 1953 and April 1954.

Three tracks here -- "White Christmas," "Snow," and "The Old Man/Gee I Wish I Was Back in the Army" -- are studio recordings of songs featured in his upcoming movie musical White Christmas. Crosby was co-starred with Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney, and Trudy Stevens in the picture, but Clooney was contracted to Columbia Records and could not appear with the others on the Decca Records soundtrack. So, Peggy Lee replaces her on the first two tracks, the third being a duet between Crosby and Kaye. White Christmas would go on to be the highest-grossing film released in 1954, and the "soundtrack" album hit number two. Also successful was the five-LP set Bing (A Musical Autobiography), which combined vintage recordings with new versions of some old Crosby hits that had...
