Caveat Emptor. This brilliant 3 CD collection is missing 'Let there be Love' and Irving Berlin's 'Lets face the Music and Dance.'

Putting that aside, this is a brilliant CD that covers Nat King Coles music from 1941 all the way up to 1957.

My new fav song is 'Nature Boy'.

Nat King Cole. One of the most mellifluous voices ever. Simply quite amazing. A lot of evening/night music on this CD. Whether you like Blues, Jazz or any of the other big genres of the era, you should like this.

Yes, there are one or two of the famous tracks not present here; but at least this calls itself an "Essential" collection, not a "Complete" one!

I knew, I knew some of Nat King Cole form my childhood days, I had no idea I knew so many of these amazingly relaxing tunes. Listening to this huge collection is the equivalent of having a hot bath and a glass of wine, or a loving shoulder rub. His tones penetrate and sooth. This is not music you sit down and focus on. It is however the perfect background to a romantic night in

So many of the signature songs missing that you need to buy something else to top up what appears to be a bargain buy.
