Nat ‘King’ Cole, Night Lights (1957)
A fairly random purchase this – a wee ep from Nat ‘King’ Cole, I like Nat ‘King Cole – how could you not? And even though I do already own some of his recordings – and have listened to plenty more – I have no doubt I bought this because of my recent decision to work through all of the albums in the 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die book that I haven’t yet heard. The book starts with albums from the 1950s – and in checking out some of the things I hadn’t heard it’s got me interested in finding more recordings form the 1950s. So I grabbed this for a fiver. A lovely little 45, a wee EP of sorts. Love that voice. It takes you away. To a very nice place.
