Still Unforgettable – Natalie Cole (2008)
October 9, 2008
This is the long time coming sequel to Natalie Cole’s 1991 Grammy LP of the Year release “Unforgettable: With Love.” In that outing Cole sang songs that her father, Nat King Cole, had recorded during his illustrious career including the chart topping single “Unforgettable” Duet with Nat King Cole.
This follow-up is really nothing special and in no way matches the superior “Unforgettable” CD. In fact I happen to prefer Miss Cole’s previous 2006 release “Leavin'”over this new CD: it contained fabulous covers of recent pop classics and I highly recommend it as a purchase if you don’t own it already.
As indicated by the track listing below, this CD contains songs from the GAS that have been recently covered by Rod Stewart, et.al, ad finitum. ”Coffee Time” is my favorite of the collection.
The required duet with Cole’s dad is the first single release from the CD and is presented below in this R promotional video.

Cole had to stop her own promotional tour after the CD was released last month to enter the hospital a few days for health issues and is now home on bed rest.
We wish Cole good health.
