Notes & Reviews:

Historic Masters Ltd., a company formed to continue historic reissues of vocal recordings initiated by the British Institute of Recorded Sound, contributed to this release of little known material by one of the truly great tenors of the twentieth century. Historic Masters discovered three recordings by Jussi Bjorling that were never released by EMI. From 1929, these were the very first recordings he made as an adult and were almost certainly intended as tests to determine Bjorling's suitability for a recording contract. Three months later he was in the studio for what was in effect the launching of his hugely successful recording career.
