Riddle Me More

Here's a little bonus for you to go with that last LP I posted. (Not that it needs much more, it's one of the longest records I've posted this year. It clocked in at 40 minutes, which probably explains some of the poor sound quality, but you don't want to know about that.) What you do want is one more track from Nelson Riddle. Nelson did this LP for Reprise sometime after Nat King Cole passed away, performing many of the tracks that he had earlier recorded with Nat, only this time they are strictly instrumental. The last track on the LP is a version of Nat's The Christmas Song. So here, for you're listening pleasure, is Nelson Riddle And His Orchestra-The Christmas Song from "Nat"-An Orchestral Portrait Of Nat King Cole By Nelson Riddle And His Orchestra (Reprise RS-6162). Good stuff...
