Bing Crosby sings Wordsworth
An upcoming re-release of Bing Crosby’s final album, Seasons, contains a musical version of Wordsworth’s “Lucy Gray,” along with selections by Kipling and Longfellow. The sung poems are all bonus tracks that Crosby recorded for poetry fan clubs just a month before his death in October of 1977. The album, Seasons (Deluxe Edition), is due out on May 18 and represents the first time it has been issued on CD.
