AllMusic Review by

After reissuing all of Frank Sinatra's studio vocal recordings with Tommy Dorsey on three double LPs, RCA completed the program with this single LP, which consists of Sinatra's radio appearances with TD, his first session as a leader (four titles cut with strings while still with Dorsey), and once again "I'll Never Smile Again" (from the first volume), which is included as filler because it had recently won an award. Of particular interest are Sinatra's vocal on Jack Leonard's hit "Marie," his participation in a medley with trumpeter Ziggy Elman and fellow singer Jo Stafford, the upbeat "I'll Take Tallulah," and his farewell to the band on "The Song Is You."
