The Chronological Bing Crosby Series from Jonzo - Complete Set

Hi all,

I'm not sure if this will be of any interest but I am selling the complete set of The Chronological Bing Crosby released on CD through Jonzo Records, volumes 1 to 51.

I am selling them through ebay for ease so I have pasted the link in below if you are at all interested.

Very best,

Rhian

Had an email from a friend today saying the following.
"VIP Music Merchant, 61B The Whittle Estate, Cambridge Road, Whetstone, Leicesterhire LE8 6LH, UK  (e-mail:mm@vip-24.com) is advertising 31 of the 51 cd set on eBay.  The cost is GDP2.99 each.  The mailing cost to the USA is GDP4.00; I don't know what it would be locally.  Perhaps some of the members would appreciate knowing this, in case they need any of them."

Quite a good price for Rhian's set, £92 for the lot. I bought one of the volumes from VIP Music. It's unfortunate that they don't have the other twenty - presumably sold out? I'm interested in one they don't have for sale.

Re: The Chronological Bing Crosby Series from Jonzo - Complete Set

That is really sad. Now I've collected nearly Bing whole recordings betwenn 1950 and 1977 - and after hearing 'em for some years, I need those Jonzos to complete my collection.

By now I like his later voice a lot more than those very early recordings, but his catalogue from the forties is great, of course.

I got some Jonzos (32-39 I think), but the COMPLETE collection for some 100 pounds - man, that was a wonderful opportunity!


:-(

Yeah, VIP-music still has some volumes in stock, but unfortunately thers's no chance to buy the volumes 40-51.

And I'm searching on ebay for a long while.....

There was an American seller recently on ebay. You had to search through international sellers. He had a number of volumes selling individually for quite some time ( but not a complete set), although his postage charge was astronomical.

Worth a search.

I have Jonzo Nos #12 - 14 - 15 - 17 - 18 -19 and 38 available for £2 each plus postage. They came from a deceased member of the ICC and the funds will go to the club.

Also I have the four discs from the "Bing - His Legendary Years" set. The box and the booklet are missing unfortunately, £5 the lot plus postage. Again, funds will go to the ICC.

I sent you a private message Malcolm.  Interested.

Jack, The Legendary Years discs are very worth while too. See https://www.amazon.co.uk/His-Legendary-Years-1931-57/dp/B000002OPK

Thank you for that recommendation Malcolm.  I have this set on my list to buy.  Much appreciated.

That Legendary Years was one of the first serious Bing collections on CD I ever bought.  But, if you're buying the Jonzo's and the Sepia '50's Decca continuation of the series you will be only duplicating yourself.  The Jonzos and Sepias all have records that appeared on Legendary Years set.   Legendary Years came out long before the Jonzos and Sepias arrived, it was a great set to have then, and I'm still glad to have it, as I believe the sound quality is greater as it comes direct from Decca vaults as opposed to cleaned up records on the Jonzo and Sepias.

Very true... but how can I pass up an impressive Bing Box set?
