Nat 'King' Cole sings his Christmas Song
This time Nathanial Cole.
Nat 'king' Cole recorded the definitive version of The Christmas Song in 1946, and while this 1960 re-recording is sublime, seek out the original. Although there is a heavy-handed use of orchestras and choruses on this record, Cole rises above the dreck with stellar versions of Deck The Hall, O Holy Night, First Noel, Adeste Fidelis, O Little Town Of Bethlehem, The Little Boy That Santa Claus Forgot and more.
To be continued in the comments.
