Product Description & Reviews
Nat returned to the piano and the sound of his great '40s trio for this 1956 gem, here augmented by five additional tracks and one alternate take! Violinist Stuff Smith, alto saxophonist Willie Smith and trombonist Juan Tizol are featured on four songs each, while trumpeter Harry "Sweets" Edison stars on five tunes, including mellow, late-night remakes of Sweet Lorraine; Route 66 , and It's Only a Paper Moon . 20-bit Super Bit Mapping remastering insures a hi-fi time. Nat "King" Cole endured more than his share of scorn and rebuke from all manner of fans and critics. He wasn't jazzy enough to satisfy many, not white enough to please the pop cultural obsession with Anglo- and Euro-American stardom. In answer to all of this, Cole simply proceeded, crooning beautifully even after he'd walked away from the piano and become primarily a vocal sensation. This 1956 collection is famous as Cole's riposte to the critique that he wasn't jazzy. The session brings several Swing Era stars on board: violinist Stuff Smith, trumpeter Harry "Sweets" Edison, trombonist Juan Tizol, and alto saxophonist Willie Smith. The horns and violin fronted a semistandard jazz setup of guitar, drums, and percussion, along with Cole's own considerable chops on piano. As an improviser, Cole heavily influenced a generation of ivory ticklers, including Oscar Peterson and others, and here he shows himself a stellar pianist. His runs bespeak Cole's utter perfection on the keyboard. This is a crucial document. --Andrew Bartlett

#1 on the charts for five weeks in 1958! Look past the tacky, sad-clown velvet painting on the cover (a Grammy-winner for album design in 1959!), there's nothing cheap or sentimental about this record--the bleakest and blackest album of popular songs ever recorded, so quietly powerful it can leave you slumped in your chair with the ice cubes still rattling in your glass. Every single ''suicide song'' (as Sinatra liked to call 'em) on Only the Lonely is a stunner that will take your breath away.
A masterful collaboration between Paul Weston and Jo Stafford, as Weston's Copland-esque arrangements create the perfect musical setting for Jo's transfixing interpretations of these American folk classics. Includes Shenandoah; Black Is the Color; Single Girl; Poor Wayfaring Stranger; Cripple Creek; I Wonder as I Wander; Barbara Allen; Old Joe Clark , and more.Shrink-wrapped.

His first two 10'' LPs, the landmark recordings that reasserted him as a pop star! This CD pairs the first two 10-inch records Sinatra recorded for Capitol. In 1955, full-length albums by popular singing stars were still few and far between. These two platters marked the beginning of Sinatra's phenomenally successful relationship with conductor-arranger Nelson Riddle, and presaged the ''concept albums'' that would become such an important part of Sinatra's Capitol period.

Newly Remastered! At the height of the singer/songwriter period, Rankin quietly became one of the key voices of the genre. Silver Morning ranks as one of the best and most representative albums of that time. Once again, Rankin does a fine job covering Gordon Lightfoot (Pussywillows, Cat Tails) but he really shines on his reworkings of the Beatles' songbook. His vocal and guitar arrangements on Lennon and McCartney's Blackbird; and particularly on Penny Lane show him to be one of the best
