"As this series of Nat 'King' Cole LPs, pressed on two 45rpm discs, concentrates on his golden era, you know what to expect: perfect sound quality, breathtaking arrangements, tasteful material and that voice. Aaah! That voice!" Sound Quality = 95% out of 100% - Ken Kessler, HiFi News, November 2010

"...the Nat King Cole LPs are astonishingly beautiful, particularly played through my new Wilson Maxx3's. They make me cry." - Max Paley, Acoustic Sounds customer

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 Sinatra's saloon songs to timeless, haunting effect with the album Where Did Everyone Go? The distinctive orchestrations of Gordon Jenkins for strings accompany the intimately expressive and supremely musical voice of the incomparable Nat "King" Cole in such classic songs as "Someone To Tell It To," "I Keep Going Back To Joe's," "Spring Is Here," "The End Of A Love Affair" and other reflections of one who had and now has not. Nat "King" Cole and arranger Gordon Jenkins followed their hit albums Love Is The Thing and The Very Thought Of You with this striking shift toward the dramatic. The result again stands among its era's finest, most stylistically defining recordings of popular music and still retains its grand sense of tragedy and beauty.

 

 

Using the original first generation 3-track session tapes from Capitol's vaults and all-analogue systems including custom headstacks, 3-track preview heads, console and monitoring chain installed at AcousTech specially for these releases, mastering engineers Kevin Gray and Steve Hoffman realize the stunning beauty of these recordings. Two bonus tracks recorded for the album, "A Farewell to Arms" and "Happy New Year," are included in this double 45-RPM 180-gram album set for their first release in original production quality. Included with this deluxe reissue is a striking six-panel booklet complete with rare photos, a 3,200-word essay by Chris Hall on the album and a 1,200-word essay by Michael Fremer about the remastering process. This truly is a no-expenses-spared project, resulting in the ultimate version of this title and a historic reissue.

THE Most Sonically Improved Of All of the AP Cole Albums

Reviewer: AnalogJ
While this is considered by some to be the third of a trilogy of with Love Is The Thing and The Very Thought of You, this one takes on a darker feel. Sonically, though, the originals of the other two are better than the original of this one. On an original of Where Did Everyone Go?, Cole is positively overwhelmed by Jenkins' orchestra and orchestrations. Certainly the mastering of Kevin Gray and Steve Hoffman made large improvements to the originals of the other two,and even to their DCC releases, but the reissue of Where Did Everyone Go? finally puts Cole front and center and allows him to breathe. It's a fabulous album, though a bit more somber than the first two, as it plumbs darker lyrical territory. Of ALL of the Cole AP albums I have, this one renders the most improvement by FAR. I think they're all pretty much essential (except for, in my opinion, the Nat King Cole Story, which is probably more important for the later work included, and that material is less of interest to me).


NAT AS YOU'VE NEVER HEARD HIM BEFORE!

My headline refers not only to the breathtaking remastering done by Mssrs. Hoffman and Gray but to the actual content of the album. While the world was buying up "Ramblin' Rose", Nat was also making the deepest, darkest album of his career. This is a VERY different Nat Cole here. He is down on his luck and at the end of his rope. His voice even sounds different while singing the lyrics of these forlorn tunes. So, the 1963 record-buying public let this gem slip right thru the cracks and (sales-wise) it went nowhere! I liken this album to Sinatra's legendary "No One Cares" LP with Gordon Jenkins. Only it sounds so much more incredibly different coming from Nat!

DON'T MISS OUT ON THIS GEM!!!!
