I grew up in the 50's & 60's listening to Nat! This has all those hits and some from the 40's! The sound is great and the booklet is informative (Recording dates and such)You can tell the 1940's songs by the sound but still are good. This may be one of my "Keepers"!!All tracks have been mastered from original tapes and lacquer discs!!

Old King Cole as a Capitol soul
Annie Van Auken | Planet Earth | 12/27/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a most satisfying sampling of the CAPITOL records Nat King Cole archives.

Tracks #1 - 5 are taken directly from the original lacquer session discs, so a bit of surface noise can be heard-- nothing severe, though. (Get Your Kicks On) Route 66 includes two false starts! The Christmas Song and Nature Boy are the original mono versions-- superior in all respects to their later re-recordings.

Nat made stereo duplicates of all his biggest hits shortly before succumbing to lung cancer, in early 1965. His failing health was quite apparent on the newer waxing of Mona Lisa. Cole was unable to sustain the long note on the last "Lisa"-- he actually ran out of breath and choked off-- very sad. But none of that is to be found here on this sparkling original mono side.

The next several selections continue the established pattern of older monaural masters. Cuts #15 - 20 are from 3-track stereo session tapes. Prior to the first of these, Non-Dimenticar, we hear Cole receive some coaching on pronunciation of the Italian lyrics. Those Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days Of Summer has pre-song studio chatter, as well.

The CAPITOL COLLECTORS SERIES * NAT KING COLE is a superb gathering of King Cole classics, taken from the best sources available. Highly recommended.
