 Great collection of Bjoerling's Finest! April 23, 2014 By P. Ledesma (Wellington, KS) See All My Reviews "This set contains a vast number of gems I'd never heard before and I found them absolutely thrilling! The artist is in his prime once again on the vast majority of these discs and hearing him teamed up again with Merrill, Warren, and Milanov was a heart warming experience! The few blips of sound quality foibles were barely detectable while the artistry and brilliance of the performances are top notch in any era! I was more than pleased with this set and recommend it without reservation!" Report Abuse
