Click Here to read Michael Fremer's essay on the Nat King Cole Mastering efforts!

Love is the theme for twelve ballads of heavenly strings orchestrated by the distinctive Gordon Jenkins, sympathetically backing the intimately expressive and supremely musical voice of the incomparable Nat "King" Cole. Featuring such legendary classics as "Stardust" and "When I Fall In Love," Love Is The Thing topped the charts upon its release, is among its era's finest, most stylistically defining recordings of popular music and continues to enchant listeners to this day.

Using the original 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 wide-range potential and beauty of these recordings in this 45-RPM 180-gram vinyl edition. Included with this deluxe reissue is a striking six-panel booklet complete with rare photos, a 2,800-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.

Originally released in 1957.

"The double 45rpm cut results in cleaner transients and greater cut-to-cut consistency as the cut never comes close to the smaller inner groove area radii. If you already own the DCC, should you make the investment in this reissue? I’d say yes. It’s as good as you will ever hear this classic album and while today we think of every new reissue as always being available, don’t count on it! Get this while you can." - Michael Fremer, www.musicangle.com, Music 10/10, Sound 10/10
