Lost Columbia Sides, 1928-1933

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
During two periods in his early career, Bing Crosby recorded for companies with catalogs later controlled by Sony. For a little over two years, from May 12, 1928, to May 23, 1930, he was part of Paul Whiteman and His Orchestra at a time when Whiteman recorded for Columbia Records, and he also made some other Columbia recordings during the period. When he went solo, he signed to Brunswick, which has since been divvied up between Sony and Universal, such that his recordings made between December 3, 1931, and July 5, 1934, are owned by Sony. Compilations of this material have been released periodically, notably on the double-LP The Bing Crosby Story, Vol. I: 1928-1932 ...

For a little over two years, from May 12, 1928, to May 23, 1930, he was part of Paul Whiteman and His Orchestra at a time when Whiteman recorded for Columbia Records, and he also made some other Columbia recordings during the period. When he went solo, he signed to Brunswick, which has since been divvied up between Sony and Universal, such that his recordings made between December 3, 1931, and July 5, 1934, are owned by Sony. Compilations of this material have been released periodically, notably on the double-LP The Bing Crosby Story, Vol. I: 1928-1932 1968 and on the quadruple-LP and triple-CD box set The Crooner: The Columbia Years 1928-1934 1988. Both of those collections are superior to this one, but both are out of print. Compiler Dan Rivard has focused on some of Crosby's less prominent work of the period hence the "lost" designation in the title, though nothing here is previously unreleased, with tracks by such studio groups as the Ipana Troubadors and the Dorsey Brothers Orchestra, plus plenty of Whiteman material and even a track with Duke Ellington, but very little of the solo recordings. James Ritz's error-filled annotations attempt to make the old case for Crosby as a jazz singer, which the recordings prove only in the broad '20s definition of jazz as dance music. But this is still a young, playful, tenor-voiced Crosby, interacting with jazz musicians and other singers in an entertaining fashion on songs written by giants of the period, such as Cole Porter and Irving Berlin. And other than Columbia-Legacy's 16 Most Requested Songs, it was the only album of this material in print in 2001 other than the many European gray-market releases.
