"Nimbus has done [Ponselle] a signal honor by devoting a third disc to her recordings, but this is no collection of near-misses and also-rans: the seventeen items on this disc come from the same top drawer as those that were in Volume 1 and Volume 2. The fact that several of these items were unpublished or are less familiar is no reflection on their quality ... the present-sounding transfers are up to Nimbus' usual high standards." Fanfare
