• Bing CROSBY - Cowboy Country - Crosby Style

There have always been plenty of singers to perform "Country & Western". Amongst them was one who, although not considered a genuine cowboy singer, certainly knew how to interpret the genre. He was an American institution named Bing Crosby.Several songs on this CD were written by names not usually associated with country music. Jimmy Van Heusen supplied "Country Style" for the Crosby picture "Welcome Stranger", whilst M.K. Jerome and Jack Scholl contributed "My Little Buckaroo" for the 1937 film "Cherokee Strip" starring Dick Foran. "Blue Shadows On The Trail" was penned by Eliot Daniel and Johnny Lange for the Disney animated picture "Melody Time" featuring Roy Rogers and The Sons Of The Pioneers. A Paramount ‘short’, "Arizona Sketches", presented "Prairieland Lullaby" by that doyen of film music Victor Young and for which Frank Loesser supplied the lyrics. Richard Whiting’s last movie score before his death in February 1938 was for Warner Brothers’ "Cowboy From Brooklyn" starring Dick Powell. Johnny Mercer wrote the lyrics for Whiting’s "Ride, Tenderfoot, Ride" and whilst Powell recorded the song, Bing didn’t, so this performance is taken from a "Kraft Music Hall" radio broadcast.The biggest surprise amongst the non-country writers is better known for his show tunes and songs with intricately witty lyrics - Cole Porter. "Don’t Fence Me In"
