This is by no means the best hits compilation available (it is one of the most prevalent), but these pre-Decca recordings from the early '30s are interesting for those with a bit more knowledge of Crosby's career than most. Selections include "Dinah," "Brother Can You Spare a Dime," "Let's Put Out the Lights," "Did You Ever See a Dream

This is a compilation of early Crosby. What he was doing in the early thirties,singing with as many bands and orchestras as possible (even a jazz theater organ accompaniment on one track)in order to make it in show business. His major competitors at the time were singers like Russ Columbo, Buddy Clark,and Gene Austin. Crosby whistles during orchestra interludes,hums, and ba-ba ba-boos to make each song an individual interpretation. A very early and undiscovered Tommy Dorsey has to be the studio trombonist backing up Crosby on "How Deep is the Ocean?" and "Ghost of a Chance". Also recommended is the track "Buddy Can You Spare a Dime?" Crosby's rendition became the hallmark signature song of the Great Depression.
