Newsletter of the Jussi Björling Societies of the USA & UK


broadcast, recordings, West Hill Radio Archives


Finally it arrived in my mailbox: the Jussi Bjorling four-CD set, a masterpiece from the Jussi Bjorling Society issued by West Hill Radio Archives. A superb compilation with splendid layout, texts, photos and great sound covering roughly half of Bjorling's known radio appearances in America between 1937 and 1956 . An impressive feat by any standards considering how frequently he sang on American radio. As a bonus on this four CD set, we get excerpts from some of his concerts in Sweden to complete the picture of a divinely gifted and beloved artist. We are offered a wide range of musical gen res performed in several languages, clearly showing Bjorling's incredible versatility.
