Pinetop's Boogie Woogie

It's been quiet on this forum lately so I figured I would get some conversation started. On my facebook group, we started talking about Bing and Lionel Hampton's 1946 Decca Recording "Pinetop's Boogie Woogie", and I always thought it was one of the worst Bing records. 

I just relistened to it, and while as a Bing fan, it is not much - it is a pretty good Lionel Hampton record. What are your thoughts?

You know, I think I must have heard that song once before but I have forgotten it ever since.   The good news it was like hearing a new Bing song, the bad news is I don't care to hear it a third time.   Bing just wasn't Bing on this record, sounded more like one of the Ink Spots, I was waiting for him to call us "honey child".

That is true - Bing seemed like an afterthought on the record. It is not a good Bing Crosby record, but if you listen to it for Lionel Hampton, it is a pretty good Hampton record.

Re: Pinetop's Boogie Woogie

Bing's vocal  got thrown off Lionel Hampton's rhythm .Flawed, yet hardly dull listening! ( It's still a Crosby pick in my "Just Remember This") .
