It takes a few weeks to get this CD, but it's well worth the wait to hear the earliest recordings of Bjorling. Many of the cuts are in Swedish and include not only opera but operetta and other lighter fare. Though his voice was glorious at any age, it is wonderful to hear how he sounded at the beginning of his career. One real treat is some 1920 recordings of the childhood Jussi with his his two brothers, Olle and Gosta. In Psalm No. 4, the fine vocal ability of the nine year old Jussi presages what will become one of the most splendid tenor voices in opera history.
