Nat King Cole - Just One Of Those Things

Our Shootout Winner from 2008


A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

ONE OF THE MOST TUBEY MAGICAL MALE VOCAL RECORDS WE’VE EVER HAD THE PLEASURE OF PLAYING! We shot this out against similar copies, earlier pressings, and a 180g reissue, and nothing was quite in a league with this. Turn up the volume, turn down the lights, and let Nat serenade you from right between your speakers -- he'll be IN THE ROOM with you!

Side one rates A++ and side two may be even better! The immediacy of the vocals is startling, and the transparency will blow your mind. The bass has the typical "tubby" sound so common to this kind of album, but it's tighter here than on any other copy we played. Nat's voice is PERFECTION -- full-bodied and breathy with loads of texture. The overall sound is three-dimensional, with Nat up front and the orchestra behind. The brass sounds wonderful, with just the right amount of bite and more breath than we heard elsewhere.

S+P's 180g reissue has some nice qualites, but isn't natural and tubey magical like this. It lacks a lot of ambience and texture to the instruments, but it's a step up from most copies.

I was pleasantly surprised to find that this record is not one of those "cry in your beer" Sinatra rip offs. The songs are actually fairly lively: mid-tempo and even up-tempo. Maybe it's the influence of Billy May, the arranger for these sessions. His arrangements keep lifting the spirits of the down in the dumps Nat King Cole (see cover), which is fine by me.
