    Before he established himself as an actor, Bing Crosby was America's Number One vocalist, a singer of tremendous popularity throughout the 1920s and `30s (and he held his own during Sinatra's ascendance, too). Crosby sang in a silky-smooth, genial, jazz-influenced style, and he also drew on a wide variety of material (Tin Pan Alley pop, Irish and Hawaiian songs, jazz, etc.). This CENTENNIAL ANTHOLOGY presents a wonderful cross-section of his early hits, some of the most important pop music of the first half of the 20th century. In addition, this DELUXE EDITION has a bonus disc of five songs.
