In this issue, we are delighted to have a report from Greg Van Beek of his recent interview with Carol Burnett and we have taken the opportunity to use a photo of Carol and Bing for our front cover. This time around we also remember a fascinating meeting with Kathryn Crosby in 1999. John Mumm compares some of Bing’s work in the 1970s while John Bassett gives details of more rare recordings. Martin McQuade investigates Bing’s involvement in the Sister Kenny polio campaign and David Lobosco reviews “Mr. Music” in Celluloid Crosby. We report on Bing’s now customary return to the charts last Christmas and Jason Liddiard tells us about the relaunch of his Crosby gatherings in the UK. Ken Crossland rediscovers vinyl while Graham Pascoe sends his usual report about Crosby matters in Australia.

Our back cover comes from the Hollywood Palace show of September 5, 1967 with Milton Berle and Jimmy Durante.
