Info for Ramblin' Rose (Remastered)
Ramblin' Rose is a Nat King Cole album. It was released by Capitol Records in 1962, and features the popular title track. The LP peaked at #3 on Billboards album chart where it remained for more than a year. It was Nat's second gold album.
Nat King Cole was an American singer and jazz pianist. He recorded Ramblin Rose on 1962 that became the #1 hit song on the Billboard Easy Listening Charts and was nominated for Record of the Year in the Grammy Awards. Cole was the first African-American performer to host a variety television series ‘The Nat King Cole Show’.
"Often imitated, Ramblin' Rose is a great crossover album for Nat to ease into Country Western. It's little wonder Ramblin' Rose topped charts and was nominated for Record of the Year. With orchestra and chorus arranged and conducted by Belford "Sinky" Hendricks (in similar fashion to collaborations with Count Basie, Sarah Vaughn, Diana Washington and a young Aretha Franklin) this album manages to flow seamlessly from classic easy listening to popping guitar rhythms ala Luther Perkins (Johnny Cash). Other than the title track, standouts include "I Don't Want It That Way", Goodnight Irene Goodnight", "Your Cheatin' Heart" and "One Has My Name..." To the 21st century ear this is the kind of music producers like David Lynch or Vince Gilligan use to highlight strange character scenes - kind of smooth and almost creepy." (Tim Reid)

Nat King Cole
Born March 17, 1919 in Montgomery, Alabama, Nat King Cole reigns among a very short list of music royalty as one of the most identifiable and most memorable voices in American music. In 1942, Cole was one of the first artists to sign with Capitol Records, and he recorded nearly 700 songs for the label, becoming the first Number One artist on Billboard's first album chart. During his 30-year recording career, Cole recorded more than 150 charting singles on Billboard's Pop, R&B and Country charts, a staggering record that remains unbroken by any other artist ever signed to Capitol Records, which led to the label being affectionately tagged, "The House That Nat Built."
In 1956, Cole also became the first person of color to host his own national network television show, NBC's "Nat King Cole Show." 1965 saw the release of Cole's classic album, Unforgettable, and his untimely passing that year at the age of 47. At the time of his death, it was reported that Capitol Records had sold more than nine million Nat King Cole records. From "Mona Lisa" to "Unforgettable," Nat King Cole's songs are incomparable; it is difficult to contemplate a holiday season without the warmth of Cole's evergreen rendition of "The Christmas Song." Cole's catalog continues to sell in excess of one million albums per year around the world.
In January 2005, Nat King Cole made his first return in 40 years to Billboard's Top 50 with the #41 debut of The World Of Nat King Cole (Capitol/EMI). Cole's last album to reach the Top 50, Unforgettable, peaked at #30 in 1965. In 1991, Natalie Cole's Unforgettable: With Love, featuring her warm virtual duet of "Unforgettable" with her father, topped charts around the world and won the coveted Album Of The Year Grammy Award, introducing Nat King Cole to a new generation of music fans.
For the March 2009 release of Nat King Cole's RE:GENERATIONS (Capitol/EMI), many of the world's most pioneering hip-hop, Latin, reggae and rock musicians, producers and DJs joined together to bring each of their distinct styles to 13 of Cole's outstanding recordings. Evocative of a sleek and stylish metrolounge where music and the visual arts converge, RE:GENERATIONS honors Nat King Cole's continued cultural influence around the planet, 90 years after his birth.
Interest in Nat King Cole's story continues to grow as younger generations discover his music as well as his role as the quiet catalyst in a host of musical and social movements. The arc of Cole's life is a study in success despite adversity, and the triumph of civility, respect and raw talent in equal measure with political, cultural and business savvy.
