Jo Stafford will always be remembered most for her romantic WWII ballads. She was the top female singer of the era, a vocal pin-up girl. Her voice was a welcomed sound to male soldiers overseas, and her most popular hits were those that reminded them of their wives and girlfriends back home.
Later in her career, Jo re-recorded her favorite war-era ballads, and the songs then were as fresh and as powerful as they were when they first went out over the airwaves in the early 1940s. Even today their magic has not lost a bit of its glow. It's easy to get lost inside a Jo Stafford recording, and these ten numbers draw you inside and paint a sentimental picture that stands the test of time.
