This record was issued for the vast cadre of Bing Crosby fans. It's a great record, presenting as it does some rare tracks. Good notes on the back cover by Steve Hester. Here's an excerpt from those notes:

"Our third album devoted to the late Bing Crosby, contains the first twenty-one selections from what Crosby enthusiasts refer to as 'the Rice Tapes'. These tracks are real rarities; we feel very fortunate to present them on this album and share them with others.

"Before the advent of tape, John Scott Trotter had the practice of recording on disc all the arrangements that he performed with Bing Crosby on the radio.. ... After several years the number of discs that Trotter accumulated numbered well over 500 selections. Eventually Trotter disposed of the discs to a friend, and after they were transferred to tape (or so the story goes) they became known as 'the Rice Tapes'.

Fortunately for all of us, John Scott Trotter had the foresight to make these discs for his personal use; because these are the only known copies of these items. No known copies of any transcriptions of the complete shows have been turned up.

As well as the songs there is a bit of talking on the record, as Bing and friends joke around.
