Bringing Back The Bing!

One of the things I had hoped to share out with you again this year is the LP you see above, a rare little piece of goodness narrated by none other than Bing Crosby!  But I was recently contacted by the current rights holder, a descendant of the World Library Productions that released the LP.  They were doing some research on the LP and came across my original share back in 2012.  They are researching a possible future release and I told them I wouldn't share it any longer and was more than happy to let everyone know it may be coming to a musical outlet near you sometime in the future.  Probably not this year, but someday.  My contact was nice enough to send me a picture of the master tapes, which I thought was really cool.  Their archive also contains a different cover as well as the one above, so if you find a different one, it's probably the same thing.  Oh, this came out way back in 1957!  So stay tuned, hopefully we'll have a full-on legit reissue of The Bonaventure Choir And Children's Chorus-Bing Crosby-Narrator-The Bible Story Of Christmas-The Traditional Carols In Gospel Sequence (World Library Productions WLP 8, Mono, 1957)!
