Using the original 3-track session tapes from Capitol's vaults and all-analogue systems including custom headstacks, 3-track preview heads, console and monitoring chain installed at AcousTech specially for these releases, mastering engineers Kevin Gray and Steve Hoffman realize the stunning wide-range potential and beauty of these recordings in this 45-RPM 180-gram vinyl edition.

Included with this deluxe reissue is a striking six-panel booklet complete with rare photos, a 2,800-word essay by Chris Hall on the album and a 1,200-word essay by Michael Fremer about the remastering process.

This truly is a no-expenses-spared project, resulting in the ultimate version of this title and a historic reissue.

Originally released in 1957.

It's an absolutely sublime reissue, well worth the outlay - the only fault I can give is that Nat's vocal track could have done with a low frequency cut. His vocals were all from live recordings so I have no idea how complex this would have been, but his vocal pops are often extremely bassy (>80hz) and send a big boom, which certainly puts you on alert!

Probably the best sounding version. His voice fills the room as if he's actually in front of you perfoming live. Amazing stuff
