Nat King Cole, the great male vocalist, was born in Montgomery Alabama on St Patrick's Day in 1919.
My earliest recollection of Nat King Cole was a Spanish LP recorded in pre-Castro Havana. (Cole Espanol)
My parents still have a copy in their LP collection. It included romantic ballads from that wonderful era of Latin American music. Cole did not speak Spanish but was great.
It is one of the nicest LPs of love songs anywhere! It reminds me of Luis Miguel's recent CD "Romance", which brought back many tunes from that time.
So Happy Birthday to Nat King Cole.
