Bing's songs are presented in mini-medley pairs and Crosby is in his hippest groove with the Cole Porter songs, where "Allez-vous-en" (originally perfected by Kay Starr) finishes off "Again" (as perfected by Ida Lupino). Malagueña" and "The breeze and I" are an ideal Lecuona coupling, and even the elderly "Ramona," "Pagan love song" and "What a difference a day made" are smartly revived by the insistently sunstruck tropical beat. Not quite in the category of such Crosby masterpieces as "Songs I Wish I Had Sung (the First Time Around)," "Bing With a Beat" or "Fancy Meeting You Here," but a very worthwhile and enjoyable collection nonetheless. 6 people found this helpful.
