Today, the brand new orchestral album from Bing Crosby, accompanied by the London Symphony Orchestra, makes UK chart history by appearing in the Top 10 of the UK Official Albums Chart.
This is the first time the legendary singer has been back in the albums chart for over 40 years – the last being 1977, the year he died.
This new release, ‘Bing At Christmas’, is proving to be the Christmas album to own this year. Today at No.9, the record is flying up the UK charts in time for the festive holiday, taking with it the world’s biggest selling single of all time, ‘White Christmas’, which is included on the record.
Bing’s daughter Mary Crosby, speaking from her home in California, was delighted to hear the news of her father’s UK chart success today: “Our family is thrilled that yet another generation has embraced dad’s music with this wonderful album”
