"...in terms of sound, the originals are a distant second to these 45rpm LPs. Cole's voice is up front, and the accompaniment, especially the massed strings, has a colorful vividness." - Marc Mickelson, The Audio Beat,
"King" Cole Reissues WIN A Positive Feedback Brutus Award! -"...if you haven't picked up every one of the Nat King Cole reissues you're really missing out!" - David W. Robinson, Positive Feedback,
"...the originals are a distant second to these 45rpm LPs. Cole's voice is up front, and the accompaniment, especially the massed strings, has a colorful vividness...Recordings this revealing offer new ways of evaluating everything about the recording sessions, and both sets hold up under the scrutiny...All of Analogue Productions' Nat 'King' Cole releases go the extra mile. They come with well-done booklets that discuss in detail each album's history and the remastering wizardry responsible for their sonics." ...the Nat King Cole LPs are astonishingly beautiful, particularly played through my new Wilson Maxx3's. They make me cry."
Contrasting downbeat ballads with an ironic brassy, upbeat big-band attitude, the brilliant and expressive work of vocalist Nat King Cole and arranger Billy May on display here is one for the ages. 1957's Just One Of Those Things is a classic collection that perfectly captures the inherent experience of love and disillusionment.
On par with Frank Sinatra's period albums, the set swings effortlessly and lightly, as Cole brings a fine, unhurried touch to uptempo standards and jazz-based pop material. Featuring top shelf interpretations of "These Foolish Things," "Who's Sorry Now?" "The Party's Over" and more, this album is among its era's finest recordings of popular music, replete with a quality, style and spirit that remain touchstones for any vocal pop outing.
What's more, a superb track recorded for the album, "You'll Never Know," which was originally omitted due to space constraints, is included as a bonus track on this pressing.
Never before has this record sounded so sumptuous, with every detail and nuance restored in a manner that places you in the recording studio with Cole.
Mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray from the original three-track analog tapes at Acoustech, complete with an all-analog system comprised of custom headstacks, 3-track preview heads, and a specially installed console and monitoring chain, this 2LP set 's wonderful!
A striking six-panel booklet complete with rare photos, 2,200-word essay by Jordan Taylor on the album, and a 1,200-word essay by Michael Fremer about the remastering process round out this stellar package.
Positively essential for any audiophile or aficionado of vocal music, jazz, and/or pop.
