Carnegie Hall, Anna-Lisa, Jussi Bjorling health
Anna-Lisa and Jussi Bjorling flew to New York in late February 1958, with a major tour of some 20 concerts scheduled for Jussi during March and April. Jussi kicked off his tour with a sold-out concert al Carnegie Hall that became one of his most famous, since it was recorded and eventually released by RCA [Cantor Don Goldberg had a role in finding the original tapes, see Ch. 27 of Jussi for this and more on reviews and other events of this tour]. At this time, Jussi was in great form vocally, with no health complaints.
