RARE AND PREVIOUSLY UNISSUED NAT KING COLE

In 1956, Nat Began a 13-Month Run as Host of The Nat King Cole Show. While bits and pieces of his performances from the show have surfaced on various bootlegs, Stardust—The Rare Television Performances represents the first legitimate and comprehensive collection of this material. 35 tracks that also include recordings from Nat’s 1963 appearance on Australian television. Features renditions of songs he never recorded commercially as well as striking re-Interpretations of his hits.

Remastered and with comprehensive Liner Notes by Cole expert Jordan Taylor including rare photos from the Cole Estate!

In late 1956, at a time when Cole was arguably the most successful entertainer on the planet, he began a 13-month run as host of his own NBC television show, The Nat King Cole Show. This new collection from Real Gone Music includes more than two dozen of the rarest and choicest performances from The Nat King Cole Show, coupled with nearly 30 minutes of additional music from a 1963 appearance on Australian television.
Appearing in this 2-disc set are many songs that Cole never recorded commercially or even sang again in public, with arrangements by such giants as Nelson Riddle, Billy May and Gordon Jenkins… and when he does sing one of his hits, they often scarcely resemble the studio recordings.

Stardust—The Rare Television Performances represents a major addition to the Nat King Cole discography. It also reminds us what a fantastic entertainer and visionary artist he truly was.
