I had read somewhere that Freddy Cole was Nat's son and a comment under the video indicated that both Ike and Freddy were Nat's sons and brothers of Natalie.  They made a good trio.  I think Freddy is still alive but I don't know about Ike.

From Wikipedia ---

Nathaniel Adams Coles (March 17, 1919 – February 15, 1965), known professionally as Nat King Cole

Biography[edit]
Early life[edit]

Nathaniel Adams Coles was born in Montgomery, Alabama, on March 17, 1919.[1] He had three brothers: Eddie (1910–1970), Ike (1927–2001), and Freddy (b. 1931),[2] and a half-sister, Joyce Coles.[3] Each of the Cole brothers pursued careers in music.[3] When Nat King Cole was four years old[4], the family moved to Chicago, Illinois, where his father, Edward Coles, became a Baptist minister.[5]

Thank you, Rammel, for the information about Nat "King" Cole's family.  I knew he was born and lived in Montgomery(not sure about being born there) and I was a big fan.  He had a marvelous voice.  Although my late husband was raised in Montgomery, I didn't realize Nat "King" cole had brothers who also sang.

I think it is amazing that so many involved in music continue with it till the end.  Good (enjoyable) music is food for the soul.

Do any of you remember the animosity Bing's male offspring had toward their Dad?  It was reported as severe parenting.  I can't remember the details.

I know that this is not the place to post this but I cannot find anywhere suitable.


A hot soak in a bath or a quick shower.


I'm a typical water baby, I like a shower, but when the old bones are giving me bother, then a long, hot soak in the bath does the trick

Do you have a preference?

Mars Gal - Thanks, I liked that!  Here's another one about feeling young at heart.  Frank Sinatra singing "You Make Me Feel so Young".  I still have the album, shown in the second video - Songs for Swinging' Lovers.  Lots of great Sinatra music on that oldie.

Here's a fun one I found recently.

"Casatschok" by Das Orchester Claudius Alzner: https://youtu.be/PKxdtZqKlG0

This is based on two Russian songs, most notably one often known as "Katyusha", with a brief part of "Song of the Volga Boatmen" in there as well. This was somewhat popular throughout Europe in the late 60s. In addition to this instrumental version, there was another version recorded by Dimitri Doukraine in 1968 and several vocal versions in various European languages in 1969. This version appeared in 1967.

If any of you took piano lessons at elementary school age, you may remember the first song in a book for beginners.  It had The Song of the Volga Boatmen as one of the first to memorize and play.  It's one of the few I remember from my long ago lessons.  I can still read music and occasionally when I'm alone at the church and have time, go to our recreation area downstairs and play a hymn or two--but I'm still an amateur!  I sang in church choirs for more than 40 years, but only sing from my seat in the congregation now.

At some point in the 60s someone thought it was a good idea to attempt to cash in on two crazes at the same time - Beatlemania and country music. That lead to the album The Fabulous Beats Go Country in which a Beatles soundalike group records country songs, including "Please Release Me": https://youtu.be/_n_dRrte1i0

Found this fun novelty tune from 1960 earlier. Three versions appeared around the same time - one by a duo called The Tree Swingers, this one and one in the UK by Frankie Vaughan. This was apparently the most popular of the three.

Here's another good one I found...

"My World" by Karel Gott: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=94Z3yzqdaWk

This is an adaptation of an Italian song called "Il Mondo". This was a big hit for Englebert Humperdinck in the mid 60s and has been recorded by many others as well.

Karel Gott is a prolific Czech singer who enjoyed considerable success from the late 50s through the mid 80s before making a comeback in the mid 90s. He has recorded songs in at least three languages (Czech, English and German).

"Your Cheating Heart" by Freddy Quinn: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=msKRfOPKGXY

Freddy Quinn is an Austrian singer who was apparently quite popular in the 60s and 70s. This somewhat over-the-top version of the Hank Williams classic was released in 1970 on an album of country music.

Thanks, Oldiesmann.  It's the first (and only) time I've heard Freddy Quinn.  He sounded like a real American cowboy!

     Here's an interesting jazz recording.  I'm sure some of your old fav's, but a different presentation (in my opinion).  I find it easy listening music.
     Unfortunately the main player died at the age of 25.

Thanks Rick - very nice and relaxing trumpet and strings . . .  “Yesterdays”  brings back some long ago memories.  This was recorded back in 1955 I see.  Was it Clifford Brown who died at age 25?

Yes, it was clifford Brown who died so early.
I think I like the way the music seemed to be a bit slower than I expected from a jazz player. Generally I wouldn't be very enthusiastic about trumpet "work",  but this I liked.
