Way Back Home
Way Back Home is a Decca Records compilation 78rpm album of phonograph records by Bing Crosby featuring sentimental and homely songs. Bing Crosby had enjoyed unprecedented success during the s but his discography indicates that the hits were becoming less frequent. His record company - Decca - had enthusiastically embraced the relatively new vinyl long-playing discs by putting out many albums of his songs to counter the reduction in hit singles. Two of the songs had already been hits with "Just a Prayer Away" reaching the No. Billboard did not review the album but it had reviewed many of the separate single issues. As it is, its success has only been delayed a bit. Song, an oldie, is a natural, and the Bing-Waring team do it mightily. My Own Bit of Land Bing spreads warmth and a homey flavor in warbling this pleasing chunk of homespun philosophy. Fine for the family trade. The Last Mile Home Bing evokes plenty of nostalgia with this warm rendition of a sentimental tune.

You really don't know how great you have it. It has been very difficult to reconcile our two expectations, hopes and dreams. Ask her out on dates. If I were you, I would just nope out of it and move on.
