Stars On 45RPM: Easy Listening and Swinging Stars

Capitol CL315
Bing Crosby & Grace Kelly: True Love /
Bing Crosby & Frank Sinatra: Well, Did You Evah? Capitol, CL315, 1982

Bing Crosby was no doubt one of the greatest singers of the 20th Century, a musical hero of many including Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley. His ability to adapt to different musical styles has made his music timeless. Although he died in 1977 material was still been released and reissued several years after his death. This 1982 single reissue brought together two duets from the 1956 film High Society  for a Captol Records gate fold sleeve release.

Milord / The Green Door / Got Ta Have Something In The Bank Frank / Give Me The Moonlight, Give Me The Girl
The Beatles dedicated their Beatles For Sale album track Mr Moonlight to Frankie Vaughan. Frankie was a popular fixture of the entertainment business during the 50s and 60s. Swingin' with Frankie Vaughan is an EP from 1960 culling together 4 Vaughan classics for the devoted readers of Woman's Own magazine - making this a likely mail order EP.
