I second the vote for this one!
Used to have that one and I miss it.
It's ridiculous, the poor quality that title has been in especially after all it has made. But I'm afraid its annual success ironically precludes AP, AF, MoFI, et al, from being able to license it.
Ironic, ain't it?
So what are they receptive to? I figured all that effort to set up that echo chamber wasn't just for this one project, was it?
I really appreciate the input. I believe I will start out with Love Is the Thing and I will go from there. If I go for broke, I'm coming after someone's head....hahaha.
I'm really addicted to vinyl and music in general. My girlfriend and I spent about 6 hours last night listening to records, dancing and a bit of singing. Time well spent. Just think, if we would have went out we would have spent the cost of one or two of these LPs on drinks. So the value I know is in this musical production. I think we will enjoy this musical growth.
The first 2 releases are amazing. Vocals like they are in the room. Excellent remaster.
Love that section of the record, the back and forth between Nat and Lee is a nice touch, and it makes the illusion of being there more convincing.......
Really wonderful job Steve.....
"The Very Thought of You", I think sounds even more lifelike than Love is the Thing.... Really brings Nat into the room....
Both are damn fine records......
Are these coming out as a 10 LP 45 set? I don't see any mention of it on Acoustic Sounds.

here and hear
individuals ......not technically a "set" unless you buy them all.
Is this something that Analogue Productions would consider doing then?
There will eventually be a big custom box to store these Nat Cole 45s in. The way it has to work, otherwise it's an official "box set" and the major label charges almost double in licensing fees.
I just loved reading this! Almost like an era long gone when a "date" at home listening to music, dancing and just being together was the thing to do to stay "close". I applaud you, Mike.
And, if you've never heard "Love is the Thing" before, you and you're girl are gonna get REALLY close. It is one of the most romatic, lush and sensusal recordings by an artist ever! ENJOY!
My copies of "Love..." and "The Very Thought..." will arrive tomorrow. I anticipate quite a weekend!
My vinyl copies of Love Is The Thing and The Very Thought Of You have arrived! However, my new turntable is not here yet.
Talk about delayed gratification.
Well, at least they're GREAT looking LP's to look at!!!!
I am savoring the great writing in the new notes for these two albums written by forum member Chris Hall. Thanks -- these Cole essays will really add to the appreciation of the particular albums.
Can't wait to read these essays....I'm waiting for the SACDs, and so it will be a while for me.
Dale: Any chance you'd share your first impressions of the sound quality, packaging, notes, etc....?
You are correct it is era gone unfortunately. My generation has been conditioned to enjoy music as "background music", spending money at bars and clubs and overpriced 5-star dinners. Our lives are TV commercials and this is where many of us are exposed to music and new artists.
My girl and I are now more inclined to either have a solo night or invite friends over, listen to some tunes and let the night take us away. I still go out but I now enjoy staying in after purchasing a turntable and listening to great music and the mastering is always an essential plus.
Thanks Nat King Cole, Kevin and Steve. I will be enjoying an evening very soon.
What about the SACDs...a separate box down the line as well?
I think so, yes.
Any chance Analogue Productions might be interested in licensing several Peggy Lee titles for these kinds of releases?
didn't they do Peggys "I Like Men"? I think Steve mastered that one.
I Like Men was on Pure Pleasure Records in mono.
I mean presenting the original three-track mixes direct, along with the mono mix, on the SACD layer, and a stereo mix on the cd layer. Plus vinyl of course.
I suggest you read further back in this thread.
PCM-Free Black Coffee would be a treat
Sorry. In my earlier post at the bottom of page 32 I asked if AF (Audio Fidelity) might be interested in a similar project for Peggy's late 50s/early 60s Capitol releases, and you responded
So, what about Audio Fidelity? Marshall responded to my message earlier this year about Kate Bush so maybe it's worth asking....
