    I love reading these threads. They give me another level of aprecuation for the music...even if I don't fully understand half of it (and that's being generous!).

    I'm always amazed at how good this material sounds, considering that it was recorded 50+ years ago.

    Then I remember that's probably why they sound so good...

    Considering the work that went into them and their importance as historical documents, are we likely to see a re-pressing any time soon? (he said, not holding his breath).

    When this Nat King Cole thread was going over the past several years, I was visiting my Dad out west to help him downsize and to spend time together. I brought 'After Midnight' with me and it really brought back memories for him of growing up in Hollywood and living off Selma near Vine. He also worked briefly for Les and Mary in their studio in the early 1950s, so the anecdotes and technical details and music all became very evocative. He passed last month so I've been listening to Nat again and this album in particular. Thanks to Chad and Steve for bringing Nat's music into my life then, the timing was perfect.
