AllMusic Review by

Festival's 20 Most Requested series presented a very solid volume on Nat King Cole. The compilation includes all of his half-dozen most famous performances -- "Nature Boy," "Get Your Kicks on Route 66," "Straighten Up and Fly Right," "Sweet Lorraine," "Embraceable You" -- and the sound quality is adequate for a budget collection. The disc is rounded out by several of Cole's sparkling, adoring ballads, such as "Too Marvellous for Words," "I'm in the Mood for Love," and "For Sentimental Reasons." The only notable exclusion is "Unforgettable," featured on Capitol's competing volume The Greatest Hits.
