I wonder what show this was Caterina is talking about?  A TV special, maybe a live concert?    It'd be good to know just what show this is.

My guess is the "Bing Crosby Show" from November 1963. She was a guest and Nick Vanoff was the producer.

She also appeared with him on the Hollywood Palace.

Yes, it´s the 1963 TV special with Buddy Ebsen, The Young Americans and Andre Previn. Certainly one of Bing´s best and most aesthetics TV shows (others are e.g. Cooling It from 1970).
Valente and Bing sung together a fine "Language of Love" medley and they duetting in various languages (Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Yiddish, French, German and I believe "Never On Sunday" in Greece). Valente have had an international carreer, beginning in Germany, but made shows and concerts in USA (12 times with Perry Como, Danny Kaye, Sammy Davis, Dean Martin, some with Carroll Burnett, long time Las Vegas, a.o.), Italy, Spain, France, Netherlands, Japan and she ever sung songs in the language of the guest country. Valente speaks (and sings) 6 or 7 languages perfectly.
1965 she appeared the second time with Bing on Hollywood Palace with a medley of 5 songs taken from the Fancy Meeting You album.

Re: What would be your top 3 of Bing's original studio albums?

This is a very interesting question, yet it's quite hard for me to answer, since there are so many albums by Bing I like that it's difficult to pick just three! Here's a video I recorded a few months ago in which I discuss my 8 favorite albums by Bing:

Malcolm Macfarlane and I also recorded a podcast last Christmas in which we talk about our favorite Bing albums. It's a little lengthier than my video, but here it is in case anyone is interested:
