Notes

Digital Transfers done at Capitol Records Studios, Hollywood, California, June-July 1992

The original Nat King Cole Trio consisted of Nat on Vocals, Oscar Moore on Guitar, and Johnny Miller on Bass (see artist credits on Track 1-01). The liner notes explain that starting at track 1-22 Irving Ashby replaces Oscar Moore, and starting at track 1-24 Joe Comfort replaces Johnny Miller. They (and the original Trio members) are not otherwise credited for subsequent tracks, only for the first track on which they appear.
