Am I the only listener (I have it on 78) to find that top note uncomfortable? Bjorling manages it. Should Enrico have attempted it?
In Freestone & Drummonds "His Recorded Legacy" the note is described as " probably falsetto" or "white", so perhaps Enrico was tense as he approached it!

Enrico was never really comfortable with high notes. Björling had no problems with them, but he was still no Caruso.
