Nat King Cole....wow!

I genuinly never realised Nat King Cole had such a nice voice - it sounds so sweet through this yammy rx-a1020 - its a CD copy of 'Lets fall in love' a repress from the original obviously, but honestly the album and his voice sounds amazing. This is the best I've heard it sound during my long long search for a replacement for my old Yammy. just though Id share.

Try one of the Analogue Productions remasters, re-done from the original three track tapes, entirely in analogue, un-chuffing-believable. My other half was in tears listening to the Love is the Thing album, extraordinary.

I'll second that, one of the best sounding LPs I've heard to date.

I think "...entirely in analogue" got missed.

I got 4 albums of Nat's SACD from capital Stereo, one of them looks like this:

Recording is GOOD.

If you like the voice of Nat King Cole I believe you will also love the voice of Ingram Washington:
