Biography

Nathaniel Adams Coles (March 17, 1919 – February 15, 1965), known professionally as Nat King Cole, was an American musician who first came to prominence as a leading jazz pianist. Although an accomplished pianist, he owes most of his popular musical fame to his soft baritone voice, which he used to perform in big band and jazz genres. He was one of the first black Americans to host a ... Read more in Amazon's Nat King Cole Store

Really like this album, as it includes songs which have not been available on CD for some while. I particularly like Nat's version of 'An Affair To Remember', and to the best of my knowledge this was only previously available on LP 'The Very Best of Nat King Cole', so it really great to now have on CD format. Plus there are some tracks here which I have never heard before, which is real bonus.

Good value with two full albums on one CD but the songs were rather too bland (and the presentation of them too similar) for my taste.

Maybe I should have gone for the pricier CD with George Shearing instead ...

TWO MORE GREAT NAT KING COLE ALBUMS 27 April 2002
By Giovanni - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
EMI has done it again; they've given us two great albums (one of which I don't believe was available here in the USA) on one spectacular disc. While the songs aren't necessarily "new" recordings (both albums were "pick ups", that is, comprised of previously recorded material) they certainly will sound "new" to fans of all ages. Capitol went into the vaults in the late 60's to come up with both of these great albums, with unreleased material or "B" sides that never made much impact and came up with two winners. The majority of the tracks were arranged and conducted by Nelson Riddle, the master arranger and conductor who first recorded with Nat on "UNFORGETTABLE", a pairing that inevitably lasted decades, even through the Riddle/Sinatra years (although it was Riddle's occupation with Sinatra that would eventually cause he and Cole to drift away from each other, professionally) Just listen to the chart for AN AFFAIR TO REMEMBER, impeccably framing Nat's subtle voice are strings and light percussion written as only Nelson could. Where the "hit version" of this song (by Vic Damone) was near-operatic, Nat's version is obviously toned down to suit his voice, but it never loses any of its beauty in lyric or performance. Just wonderful. Nat and Nelson have a go at the old standard FASCINATION, and the arrangement mirrors that of Unforgettable, complete with the special tag on the ending. A very nice treatment of this classic song. Nat was known for taking lesser known songs or brand new songs and making them great. One such song here, THERE'S A GOLD MINE IN THE SKY, harkens one back to Nat's "Ramblin' Rose" album, with it's country flavored beat and simple message. Nelson's chart will have you drifting to the stars. Gordon Jenkins, Capitol's other premire arranger and conductor, and Nat King Cole were no strangers either. Nat returns the favor to Gordon Jenkins for so many wonderful years (and albums)together here by singing Jenkins' own HAPPY NEW YEAR. Gordon also did the chart for his melancholy masterpiece (this chart is similar to the one Gordon wrote for Judy Garland's spectacular version of this song; nice to hear a "male" version of this one!) As always, the original liner notes and artwork has been restored here for you to enjoy. Hoping EMI finds something to pair up Nat's MY FAIR LADY album with and gets that out on CD; that appears to be the only album of this musical icon's that hasn't been on CD yet! Nat King Cole left us far too early in life; it's so great to know EMI keeps his music alive for generations to enjoy.

"many hard-to-find releases ~ Nat King Cole" 9 Jan 2005
By J. Lovins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Purchased this compact disc from Amazon, received in less than five days and the shipping was FREE...the last of Nat King Cole twofer albums put on CD "Nat Cole Sings The Great Songs!" and "Thank You, Pretty Baby", arranged and conducted by Nelson Riddle, Gordon Jenkins, David Cavanaugh and Ralph Carmichael with romance in the air and the magic of Nat's voice brings back the thrill.

You can't go wrong with any of Cole's albums that are now on CD...both are excellent, many are hard-to-find B-sides not well known...such as "BE STILL MY HEART", "BRAZILIAN LOVE SONG", "FAREWELL TO ARMS", "FOR THE WANT OF A KISS", "HAPPY NEW YEAR", composed by Gordon Jenkins, "I WISH I KNEW", "MAGIC MOMENT", "MAGIC NIGHT", "MAKE IT LAST", "MR. WISHING WELL", "ONE SUN", "THANK YOU, PRETTY BABY", "UNFAIR" and "UNITED", when it comes to interpretation and expertly performed, Nat is the master at his craft.

More familiar songs like "AN AFFAIR TO REMEMBER", "AROUND THE WORLD", "FASCINATION", "I HAD THE CRAZIEST DREAM", a favorite of mine from the Betty Grable days of the '40s, "PEOPLE", hit song from the musical "Funny Girl", Nat has a way of making this his own, "THERE'S A GOLD MINE IN THE SKY", "YOU MADE ME LOVE YOU", performed and made popular by Al Jolson, Judy Garland and Harry James, "YOU'RE MY THRILL", a wonderful Joni James hit, but listen as Nat lays out his signature style and it's a classic again.

This collection is available on EMI/Capitol Import label and is only in the Mono version, but the care that was taken is incredible...a must have for all the fans of this beloved man...they'll never be another pass this way again...thanks to this UK release of Nat "King" Cole...just the way we like 'em!

Fascinating 27 Aug 2009
By Jim Andrews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Most of these recordings likely were done to fill out recording sessions. The custom was four songs in three hours and most big stars did sessions several times a month so coming up with worthwhile material was a challenge (many artists recorded single versions of album tracks to fill out sessions, recordings unlikely ever to be heard). What's fascinating here is the top quality of everything Cole did, even the most unremarkable music. He really never had a style--that is, he didn't have trademark vocal tricks, he didn't "live" his songs. What he did have was a honey-sweet voice with just the right touch of sandpaper, and a thorougly honest way with lyrics. He let the song reveal itself. So everything here is just wonderful. The arrangements by Riddle and Jenkins are as usual fabulous. But I think guitar and/or drum beats were added over the original recordings; they sound intrusive and detached. Capitol never should have done that. I can't stop listening to this C.D. because is such an example of the perfect and complete artist. Get it!

fine two-fer CD of Nat King Cole's great work 23 Dec 2007
By Matthew G. Sherwin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Nat King Cole could wrap his adoring audiences around his pinky finger and lead them wherever he wanted them to go with his excellent ability to sing and touch the hearts of his fans. Nat King Cole also left us a huge legacy of his fine artistry; and this two-fer CD gives us all the songs from two of Nat's record albums entitled Sings The Great Songs and Thank You, Pretty Baby.

The CD has numerous highlights. "An Affair To Remember" features Nat singing perfectly about a romance that just could never be forgotten. The strings help to make the musical arrangement very fine. I really like "Fascination;" Nat King Cole croons this without a superfluous note and again the lush musical arrangement enhances the natural beauty of the number. Nat's excellent diction helps to make him a very special singer. Moreover, listen for "I Wish I Knew;" this slow tempo ballad gets the royal treatment from Nat who delivers this like the pro that he remains!

"Be Still My Heart" is another wonderful tune that sparkles brightly when Nat sings it; and "Around The World" impresses me as Nat sings this ballad from the movie of the same name.

"Magic Moment" places Nat squarely in the spotlight although the musical arrangement almost drowns him out once or twice (humph!); and "You Made Me Love You" sounds real sweet when Nat King Cole performs it. "You Made Me Love You" is a great ballad; and I predict that you will like this very much.

Nat King Cole's interpretation of the love ballad entitled "People" reflects his excellent ability to convey every single different shade of love; and "Brazilian Love Song" gives us Nat doing a Latin song that is rather romantic and very beautiful. The album ends with "Mr. Wishing Well;" the female backup works well for this song and Nat sings this with great sensitivity. I love it!

The CD comes with the original liner notes and artwork. The lush arrangements by Nelson Riddle impress me.

Nat King Cole will never be forgotten. Long after most "celebrities" are buried and gone, Nat will remain one of the greatest male vocalists of the entire twentieth century. This two-fer CD amply proves his talent and I highly recommend this disc for fans of classic pop vocals in addition to Nat's fans.
Nat King Cole Was Awesome 29 Oct 2013

I always loved the music of Nat King Cole. I first heard it when I was a child. The version of Just Incredible where it sounds like it actually he sang it with his daughter is indeed incredible.
