RE:   Christmas with Bing!

Thanks Kevin, I do have that discography link but the CD I have is not listed there.   It did get a Crosby Enterprises endorsement and I have some idea of most of the tracks but no real Liner Notes to speak of...it is not listed in Discogs or Allmusic in any great detail...anyway...will keep looking but thank you!  Jim A, west Tennessee
