Nat King Cole, L-O-V-E, Capitol ST-2195, 1964

The House That Nat built tried to keep their beloved Mr. Cole in their studio as much as possible.  This was the fourth album and final album that he recorded for Capitol in 1964.  Fourth in this case because it’s an amazing achievement nowadays for an artist to release four albums in a decade, and final because Nat King Cole died a few weeks after the record was released.

You would never know that these were the output of the amazing singer’s last recording sessions.  He was in really good voice despite having fatal lung cancer.  I prefer to think that is why this album peaked at #4, and not because it was a brand new record of a legend that has just died.

Its a really great album too.  The title track is one the the most remembered of all of Cole’s songs.  Because it mostly appealed to adults (the LOVE single only peaked at #28) this album is pretty to find.  It’s rarely pricey and usually in great shape.  I’d go so far as to call this one essential.
