A Decca 45RPM “Unbreakable Record”. The Whiffenpoof Song on Side A recorded by Bing Crosby with Fred  Waring, and “Kentucky Babe” on Side B. I think it was released in 1947 based upon the billboard magazine below.

Whiffenpoofs

The Actual Whiffenpoofs- an undergraduate musical group at Yale, who first published the song in 1909. They look like a rather fun bunch.
