In his too-short 45 years, Cole transformed himself from an acclaimed jazz pianist to one of America's pre-eminent vocalists. Note that Cole’s Sweet William was issued on a 1967 promotional LP for The Nat King Cole Foundation. It’s unclear whether this is a different take from the July 31, 1952 session. Also premiering are two duets between Nat and his young daughters Carole and Natalie recorded in 1954 with Riddle: Ain’t She Sweet and What to Do.

Nat King Cole was way before his time. Too bad he passed away so soon. We could have had a lot more beautiful music from him. I'm just sorry the generations since his passing probably don't know what they're missing by not listening to his beautiful voice. It's here to be purchased (at great prices) and listened to. One can't help but be touched by it and just love it. I agree with everyone else, you can't have Christmas without some of our generations' singers, and Nat King Cole is surely one of them. I hate Christmas music but love Nat King Cole. This is the only Christmas album I can listen to over and over 12 months per year. One person found this helpful.
