Jussi Björling’s exalted position among historically important singers needs no justification. If evidence were still needed, however, it could be found in these four invaluable albums. Here is that once-in-a-century voice, ennobling even music as hackneyed and sentimental as d’Hardelot’s “Because” through sheer vocal glory.
 
Björling’s voice took brilliantly to the microphone. It was inevitable, then, that once he was established in America, numerous popular radio programs would be clamoring for him. This collection fills a gap by gathering into one set much of the tenor’s best American radio work along with some rare Swedish broadcasts, all from optimal sources, newly restored. Anyone familiar with Björling’s career will have heard most of this repertoire on his commercial recordings. Like every great singer, however, Björling gave an indefinable but undeniable extra spark to his live performances.
“Invaluable ... devotees will want these beautifully cleaned-up American radio transcriptions that have been a labour of love for the compilers who dragged them out of archives all over America.” 
 
David Mellor -  The Mail on Sunday
 

“...the quality of the singing is such that when I finished listening to the whole set, I wanted to start over again from the first disc.”
 
Henry Fogel - Fanfare
