In what some consider his last great album prior to his tragic passing, Nat King Cole approached the dramatic dark side of love in the spirit of Frank Sinatra's saloon songs to timeless, haunting effect on the 1963 release Where Did Everyone Go? The third and final album that paired him with arranger Gordon Jenkins finds Cole playing the role of song interpreter to supreme effect, laying down his gorgeous baritone on a poignant, melodic collection that remains a pop classic with a touch of the blues.
Never before has this record sounded so rich, with every detail and nuance restored in a manner that places you in the recording studio with Cole. Mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray from the original three-track analog tapes at Acoustech, complete with an all-analog system comprised of custom headstacks, 3-track preview heads, and a specially installed console and monitoring chain, this 2LP set is stunningly gorgeous-sounding as well as looking!
That's not all. Two bonus tracks recorded for the album, "A Farewell to Arms" and "Happy New Year," are also included here for the first time. Rounding out the package is a striking six-panel booklet complete with rare photos, a 3,200-word essay by Chris Hall about the album, and a 1,200-word reflection by Michael Fremer about the remastering process. Audiophile delights and vocal albums don't come more definitive than this! Truly no expense was spared in the production or mastering efforts here!.
