Dick Haymes - What CD's are "essential"

I know there are some Dick Haymes fans out there! I have listened to some of his stuff and found what I'm sure everyone back in the 40's did, great voice, and a very good singer.

So, the other day I was listening to his Capitol albums and some stuff he did after (the amazing power of streaming music!) and thought I'd like to add some of his stuff to my collection. There is a "Complete Capitol" set that seems a "must" and "Sepia" has "The Name is Haymes", which I would be interested in but looking to see what other CD's folks here feel would be worth considering.

I like his version of “It Might As Well Be Spring”., “Laura” and some others which I will have to check when I get back home as away for my brother’s 80th, the young whipper snipper.
Don’t know how he afforded all those alimony payments or did they stop when the ex re-married.
Enjoyed the movie ‘State Fair’ and of course the recordings with Bing and the Andrew Sisters.

Almost every Dick Haymes CD is worth it. If you are for the best of type of CD collection, I would recommend the CD collection on Jasmine. Anything is worthwhile.
