I bought a hand full of Guy Lombardo and Xavier Cugar records along with some Les Brown and other bands, Ray Noble, Russ Morgan and some bands featuring Doris Day or Dinah Shore, this weekend.

I will be conducting my taste testing this week.
Initial report: enjoyed the Xavier Cugat record with a female singing in Spanish.

I began reading the book "Jazz Singing" and the author has no good words for Guy Lombardo and worse for The Andrews Sisters, The Ink Spots, and Vic Damone and little good to say about Dean Martin.

He loves Bing Crosby and likes The Boswell Sisters and has a lot good to say about a pair of singers I do not know: Kay Starr and Jo Stafford.

He goes on for several pages on Kay Starr - the white Dinah Washington.

And back to Decca: the author credits Jack Kapp for the "Sing the Melody" Decca mantra and the corresponding bland Decca music.

My first Lombardo record was Br 4823 (Stormy Weather / Stay out of my dreams, 1933) one of the soft style. But it was my first contact with this style and I loved it. That was in 1997. Later came some more records, not very good, until British Columbia 5823 arrived (Sweethearts on parade / My blackbirds are bluebirds now, 1928) which I found interesting.
Later I discovered Hal Kemp, another exponent of this soft style, but reaching the perfection in the synchronization of instruments, and oh! those perfect diction vocalists... I later discovered that the good John Scott Trotter was pianist and arranger for Kemp, and so I could establish the musical similitudes and subtle connections with my all-life beloved records of Bing Crosby accompanied by John's orchestra. Those wind arrangements... That discovery brought me peace and musical understanding. Still, there must be a connection with Lombardo too... May it be?
And finally I acquired in later years Vi 25210 (The broken record) and Br 6714 (Inka dinka doo, 1933), much sought after. I also love them. Lately, a bunch of records brought another Lombardo surprise, French HMV K 8052 with a very interesting Victor recording of Bei Mir bist du schon (mx 017718). I love this record too.
And there is the funny mention of Lombardo in the Bing Crosby and Johnny Mercer recording:
mr gallagher and mr shean (as sung by mr crosby and mr mercer) (ed gallagher, al shean, johnny mercer adapt) — BING CROSBY & JOHNNY MERCER V + VICTOR YOUNG SMALL FRYERS — de 1960 — Mx. dla 1298 e — Rec. 1938 07 01 la
