Naxos, CD, Jussi Bjorling Collection


Our JB Society has been glad to bring Volumes 4 and 5 of Naxos's "JB Collection" to our members, and now you can order Vol. 6 from the Museum: This includes all 12 "Erik Odde" recordings of Jussi with his dance-band accompaniments from 1932-33, as well as slightly more substantial music recorded under his own name (e.g. three songs from a 1933 competition for the "best summer song" of Denmark, Norway, and Sweden). We have heard Vol. 6 and can assure you that Stefan Lindstrom's remasterings are noticeably warmer and easier to listen to than previous transcriptions.
