Nat King Cole, sings the blues. 1958

I grew up in a household full of music, whether it was the old radiogram or just the radio, hidden under my pillow at night time. For many of us who are collectors of vinyl we have inherited our parents vinyl collection, sadly my parents stack of 78s were donated to a local school and I don’t have them. But I do have some classic albums and singles. My parents were children of WW11 and the English town they lived in was a base for American GIs. My parents musical tastes were highly influenced by their American visitors! There are a couple of reason why I chose Nat King Cole over all the others, the year it was released is one of those reasons, 1958, my birth year. Plus my now love for jazz and blues music. So I’m thinking my parents did good and raised me to love and appreciate music of all genres and I would like to thank them for that.
