Bing Crosby-Strength In Numbers ©JCMarion


Harry Lillis "Bing" Crosby had been a major entertainment figure since the late 1920s when he was a member of the Rhythm Boys with Paul Whiteman's orchestra. By 1931 he had become a major recording star and then lent his talents to the field of motion pictures. After close to twenty years in the spotlight, he continued to be one of the finest musical performers in the world. What follows is a listing of his charted records during the Interlude Era from 1946-1955, beginning in January of 1946.
