5.0 out of 5 stars A CD to set the mood for relaxation or romance
The warmth and atmosphere, created by voice and music in this collection, provide a wonderfully serene listening experience. As a backdrop for a romantic evening or just pure relaxation this CD must be one of the best around.

This man speaks love and better than that,sings love like the air he breaths.This particular collection is so breathtaking especially Mona Lisa.It makes one wonder what's happened to all the realy good music these days.Nat was able to turn a simple story into something like a masterpiece and these lyrics will always remain unforgotten and live on forever......

5.0 out of 5 stars A timeless easy listening classic!, 28 May 2003
By 
Janski (Dunfermline, Fife United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Nat King Cole - The Ultimate Collection (Audio CD)
A brillant album, timeless of the era and is perfect bliss. From the perfectly mellow "Christmas Song" to the perfectly jazz infused "Let there be Love", my personal favourite. And probably his best known due to its inclusion in many jazz albums. His appeal is still far reaching today with his tracks used for commercials such Quality Street and British Meat. If you like "Let there be love" you won't be disappointed by the album.

5.0 out of 5 stars The greatest songs by the greatest voice of all time., 29 May 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Nat King Cole - The Ultimate Collection (Audio CD)
Nat King Cole remains the greatest singer to ever record a song so one should be happy to listen to any album of his. However, this has to be the best Nat King Cole album one could ask for. Filled with some of the most romantic songs ever written, such as Unforgettable, When I Fall in Love and On The Street Where You Live, I can recommend this to any enthusiast of the jazz legend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ultimate..with the "e" missing, 9 Nov 2002
This review is from: Nat King Cole - The Ultimate Collection (Audio CD)
"Around The World" and "There Will Never Be Another You", would truly have made this album the "Ultimate",the solution of course is easy nowadays,put all these on a blank cd and add the other2 yourself (is this illegal).The compilers of these important artiste studies,usually come up short somewhere,even though there are scant examples of Nat ever coming up "short". This is a wonderful compilation of feet up eyes closed music,administered by an Artiste who deserves never to have an under par effort from a compiler. Nevertheless,you will love this even without the 2 missing gems.Enjoy

5.0 out of 5 stars Unforgettable, 19 Jun 2011
This review is from: Nat King Cole - The Ultimate Collection (Audio CD)
The name of the song "UNFORGETTABLE" says it all but they dont make them like him any more,or write music and songs that
have meaning and feeling but of course the artists of Nats day had to be good to get to the top I am an old man now 80+ and
know I was privaledged to have lived to have heard them first hand.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Nat King Cole: Unforgattable..., 4 Oct 2011

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nat King Cole - The Ultimate Collection (Audio CD)
This is probably the best one disc compilation from the finest vocalist of his generation, Nat King Cole. With a voice as smooth as silk and as sweet as honey, he put out track after track of some of the greatest romancing music ever committed to vinyl. This collection concentrates on his big easy listening hits from the fifties and sixties, and ignores his more jazz based band work from earlier decades. It is 22 tracks of some of the most expressive and romance laden tracks you are ever likely to hear. It's all classic stuff.

This compilation has a nicely mastered sound that sounds clean and bright on my stereo, much better than some other budget release compilations that I have owned. An excellent set, five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars How to sing a standard.., 29 April 2009

M. R. Shepherd "Michael Shepherd" (London, UK) - See all my reviews

This review is from: Nat King Cole - The Ultimate Collection (Audio CD)
A good first selection for those who love the standard song-book and enjoy comparing Chet, Ella, Frankie, and all your other favourites..

Nat -- for reasons of character and situation -- hid his full talent. It's 'A Nightingale sang in Berkeley Square' of all unlikely songs, where he reveals on this disk, his huge musical intelligence...Enjoy.
