Nat King Cole Just One of Those Things on Hybrid 3-Channel SACD from Analogue Productions
Mastered from the Original 3-Track Analog Master Tapes by Kevin Gray and Steve Hoffman at Acoustech
Includes Complete Original "Close Mike" Mono Mixes on SACD Layer
Exquisite Sonics: Cole's Voice Has Never Sounded as Rich or Balanced
Hear Cole in the Center Channel on the 3-Channel SACD Mix
Contrasting downbeat ballads with an ironic brassy, upbeat big-band attitude, the brilliant and expressive work of vocalist Nat King Cole and arranger Billy May here is one for the ages. 1957's Just One Of Those Things is a classic collection that perfectly captures the inherent experience of love and disillusionment. On par with Frank Sinatra's period albums, the set swings effortlessly and lightly, as Cole brings a fine, unhurried touch to uptempo standards and jazz-based pop material.
Never before has this record sounded so sumptuous, with every detail and nuance restored in a manner that places you in the recording studio with Cole. Mastered from the original three-track analog tapes at Acoustech by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray for an unparalleled sonic experience.
“This means you will be able to hear the real deal plus a surround and stereo mix of these legendary albums. By real deal I mean the close-miked mono creation, done live in Capitol Tower Studios A & B along with the "upstairs" control room creation, the stereo versions with a different set of microphones and parameters. This is very exciting to me. These mono versions have been out of print since the 1960's and we will use the original mono reels, mastered flat to DSD via the awesome Grimm A/DSD converter." - Steve Hoffman, describing the mastering process
