Bing Sings

The year for Bing Sings should be 1977. According to RIAA's website, BingSings was issued on Reader's Digest Music. You're thinking of the 1955 album Bing Swings Whilst Bregman Swings. The later album titled Bing Sings is shortened from it's original title 'Bing Sings 96 of His Greatest Hits' and was issued in 1977, right after his death. Bregman Swings was released on Verve Records, that's how I know it's not that one that was certified 2x Platinum

We've changed the 1955 entry as ou suggested. Thanks

Why is Merry Christmas listed in 1957?

This album has entries for 1945, 1957, 1958, 1960 and 1970 what year should be assigned?

second time around

I am looking for song title "second time around" and the cd its on

Bing Crosby's song "The Second Time Around" was never a hit, it was nominated for an Oscar (Best Original Song) in 1960. It was from the film 'High Time'.

It lost out to "Never On Sunday" by Don Costa
