• Bing CROSBY - Going Hollywood, Vol. 3: 1940-1944

Three months elapsed between the completion of filming for "The Starmaker" (covered in Vol. 2 - JASMINE JASCD 113/4) and Bing's return to the Paramount lot, but there was no let-up in his busy schedule. The Kraft weekly radio show continued until June 15 with a new season starting in late September 1939, and there were sessions for DECCA including his first recordings with the Andrews Sisters in New York on September 20. Leisurely pursuits occupied much of his time - visits to race-tracks in Boston, at Hollywood Park (where his horse won) and Del Mar. Whilst in New York he found time to visit the World's Fair and, of course, there was plenty of golf. He played in an exhibition match the day before shooting began on October 2 for "Road To Singapore".
