Rare Bing Crosby
A Medley of Parodies: Set to the tunes of Mack the Knife, Surrey With the Fringe on the Top, Yellow Bird, I've Been Working on the Railroad, You Came a Long Way from St. Louis, The Pleasure of Your Company, Galway Bay, Old Man River. Special lyrics detail the activities of a Texas quail hunting group of which Crosby was a member. Thus recording weaves into the songs the names of many of the group's members. With the late Jake Hanna, Johnny Smith, Joe Bushkin, Milt Hinton.
Anthem of the Clams: w Bing Crosby, m James VanHeusen. 1960. Source? Date?
South of the Border: Small group with flute prominently featured. Source? Date?
