Nat King Cole chronology. St. Louis Blues (1958). The Very Thought of You (1958). To Whom It May Concern (1958). In 2007 Collectors' Choice Music also re-issued "The Very Thought of You" on CD and included the tracks "Happy New Year" and "Farewell To Arms" from a 1962 recording session.
This ballad-oriented set puts the emphasis completely on his voice (there is no piano playing or any hint of his jazz-oriented past) and features Cole accompanied by Gordon Jenkins' sweet arrangements for a string orchestra. Many other singers might find it difficult to overcome, much less uplift this type of accompaniment, but Cole's basic and honest delivery works quite well in this setting.
