AllMusic Review by

This very attractive five-CD box set has every studio recording that Frank Sinatra recorded with Tommy Dorsey & His Orchestra, plus a full disc of mostly unreleased radio broadcasts. Since Sinatra was never really a jazz singer and most of the selections are ballads, jazz listeners may not consider this box essential, but Sinatra fans will not need to be told of its existence twice. Sinatra's first session as a leader (from early 1942) is also included (along with a large and colorful booklet), giving listeners a very definitive look into his early days.
