Bing Crosby 45s and EPs with Maynard Ferguson
BING CROSBY, BING SINGS WHILST BREGMAN SWINGS -- Verve EP V-5022
This EP is incredibly rare. The song selection includes I've Got Five Dollars, Nice Work When You Can Get It, September in the Rain, and Jeepers Creepers. Bing was absolutely at the prime of his career, and the arrangements by Buddy Bregman were killers! And Maynard can be heard at the top of it all, blowing the high notes on a number of passages. A great little picture cover EP.
COPY #1. This is the first copy of this rare little EP I've ever had for sale on the website, and it will probably be the last. They're that rare! The picture cover on this copy is pretty rough. It has clear tape on the seams and some definite wear and creases. This reduces the cover to just GOOD, which is another way to say "not so hot." The vinyl has definite scuffs and surface scratches, but it does play OK with some background noise. It's VG-. Overall, this copy is in the GOOD+ range. It's just a space filler, but given its rarity, it's well worth $2.00.
