AllMusic Review by

You Belong to Me is a two-disc, 54-track overview of vocalist Jo Stafford's pop hits encompassing her tenure with Capitol in the '40s and 14 tracks recorded for Columbia in the early '50s. Several of her Top Ten hits and million-sellers are included: "Some Enchanted Evening," "Goodnight, Irene," "If," "The Tennessee Waltz," "Shrimp Boats," "Keep It a Secret," and "You Belong to Me." Also interwoven throughout the program are a few essential duets with Gordon MacRae ("Say Something Sweet to Your Sweetheart," "My Darling, My Darling," "Whispering Hope") and Frankie Laine ("Hey Good Lookin'," "Hambone"). This two-disc collection serves as an excellent career overview alongside Living Era's companion set, Coming Back Like a Song.
