Released in partnership with the Nat King Cole estate, Resonance Records' 'Hittin' The Ramp: The Early Years (1936-1943)' is the first large-scale collection of the pivotal early recordings (1936-1943) of Nat's 29-year recording career. Most tracks are receiving their first official release in this meticulously restored set of original live-to-disk recordings. This definitive 7CD and limited-edition 10LP collection draws upon a wide range of sources, including many newly-discovered tracks unearthed for the first time from archives located all over the world, such as 'Trompin' (jukebox-only release for Cinematone, 1939), 'What'cha Know Joe' (undocumented radio performance, 1940), 'The Romany Room is Jumpin' (private recording, 1941) and 'Beautiful Moons Ago' (longer alternate take, 1943).
