Gary Crosby Sings Bing!

I know people hate Gary Crosby for the book he wrote about Bing, and rightfullyso but if Gary had the drive and ambition he could have been a good singer. Here is an album I picked up that Gary recorded in Germany with Bud Shank in 1957. It was good. 

Here are the Bing songs from the album:

Gary could sing in tune but these three examples suggest that he relied on the Crosby name to achieve whatever success he had as a vocalist. I wonder why he chose to record 'Blue Prelude', an undistinguished song which must have been difficult for any vocalist to do much with.
