I thought that perhaps one way of approaching this was by trying to think of two people who at first thought shouldn't have any kind of link at all except for a last name, and then plotting a route between them. If you are reading this, it means it might have worked. Ok, lets see how we can link those Crosby boys, David and Bing! Each link will feature someone who has recorded with the act before. A warning: We are travelling a scenic and sometimes even bluesey route on this one.

...The Band, when they decided to bow out. They did it in style, with an all-star farewell concert, which also became a movie by Scorsese and a triple album. Of all the people they played with, they are probably most well known for playing with Dylan. He did several songs with them on this show. I picked this because It is a solid rocky number, different in feel to what comes next, when...

I own this single and I am not ashamed to admit it. Soon after this was recorded, Mr Crosby died, prompting jokes such as these. Q: Who's dead and sounds like a bell. A: Bing!!!!!! I thank yew!
