Editors' Notes With her uncommonly tender tremolo topping sumptuous orchestral arrangements, The Forces' Sweetheart readily transports listeners to the dance halls of WWII with this collection of her cherished big-band ballads. At her best when bringing languid hopefulness to an unassuming "(There'll Be Bluebirds Over) The White Cliffs of Dover" and trading leads with a male military chorus on an especially wistful "We'll Meet Again," Lynn was blessed with a powerful voice that’s unparalleled in its delivery of sentimental feelings, making these songs timeless treasures.
