The Chronological Crosby A listing of the series of CDs issued by Jonzo so entitled, and the subsequent series from Sepia named 'Through The Years' which together offer a nearly complete sequence in correct chronological order of all the studio recordings from 1926 until the end of the association with Decca in 1955.

Ken Barnes' Laureate Forum

Ken Barnes produced a series of albums recorded by Bing in the last two years of his life, was responsible for the digitisation and refurbishment of some of Bing's films for DVD and produced three CDs with an additional orchestral accompaniment to recordings made by Bing in the 1950s with a small group led by Buddy Cole. All of these were very well received and the consensus of opinion is that Mr. Barnes was largely responsible for a considerable revival in interest in Bing during 1975 to 1977. He has written about his experiences of working with Bing on a number of occasions and wrote the book 'The Crosby Years'. 

Carolyn Schneider

Carolyn is a niece of Bing, (the daughter of Bing's sister Mary Rose) and has written about her memories of him in two books -'Bing Crosby: The Road To Elko' and 'Me and Uncle Bing'.
