The winter 2009 issue of BING magazine is a bumper 60 page edition bringing details of a magnificent new 7-CD set from Mosaic Records. This is a marvellous new issue which has come about thanks to Bing Crosby Enterprises and their Vice President of Marketing and Production - Robert S. Bader – who is a real enthusiast and who has many ideas for marketing Bing’s music. Mr. Bader has kindly written an article for us giving the background to this new box-set and I am sure all will find this to be fascinating reading. This box-set will have a comprehensive booklet with session by session notes written by Gary Giddins. All in all, it is a most prestigious item which we shall all like to have if we can afford it. It is a limited edition with only 20,000 copies being pressed.

Greg Van Beek told us about an article about Bing in the July 2009 issue of Cowboys & Indians magazine and the magazine has kindly given us permission to reproduce this for our readers. Our usual contributors continue to find new subjects to entertain us with Greg Van Beek and Martin McQuade digging up little known facts about other facets of Bing’s life. Bob Halls sends an in-depth report on the Leeds meeting which again seemed to be appreciated by those present. Keith Parkinson looks at Say One For Me and Gord Atkinson recalls his meetings with Tony Bennett.

If you are interested in Bing Crosby, you will find much to interest you in this latest issue.
