Top 10 Christmas CD of All Time: Bing Crosby and White Christmas

White Christmas, Bing Crosby

Well if we thought that Charlie Brown was a classic, Bing Crosby's White Christmas wrote the book. White Christmas the song and CD is forever stamped with Crosby's name. I remember watching White Christmas with Kanny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen, This Cd has all of the classic tunes in his crooning Christmas manner. Even if you don't know who Bing Crosby is he is burned into our DNA. This is one of the finest Christmas albums every made with some estimates of over 50 million sold. This album started the trend of major artists recording holiday albums. The Guinness Book of World Records lists White Christmas as a 100 million seller. This record and now cd has never been out of print.

Including: Silent Night, White Christmas, God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, I'll Be Home for Christmas, Jingle Bells with the Andrews Sisters, Silver Bells and who can forget It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas.

This Amazon reviews kinds of nails it "Bing was an absolute master of his craft back when this album was made and John Scott Trotter's orchestrations were to Bing what Nelson Riddle was to Sinatra - perfect"

A must have for everyone's holiday collection, click here to pick one up at copy at Amazon:
