This second lp from Natalie Cole (Natalie-1976)was a birthday gift from my sister.She was really into the lp and i soon discovered why.The hits"Sophistocated Lady" and "Mr.Melody" were all over the radio.Our radio station went further by pumping in on the playlist "Touch Me"(a serious R&B ballad of the day),her covering Billie Holiday's "Good Morning Heartache",The gospel fiery of "Keep Smiling" and the lucious hand crafted(for Natalie) ballads,"Heaven Is With You" and "No Plans For The Future".The lp had it going on and it was truly a birthday gift to cherish

Natalie Cole was just hitting her stride with her 1976 Album Natalie.Every song with Mr.Melody,Heaven Is With You,Sophisticated Lady(She's A Different Lady),No Plans For The Future,Can We Get Together Again?,Keep Smiling,Good Morning Heartache,Not Like Mine,Touch Me,and Hard To Get Along matters.She is a Unique Recording Artist despite new comparisons to Diana Ross,Chaka Khan,Ella Fitzgerald,and Nancy Wilson as well as the continued comparisons to her father the late Nat King Cole and Aretha Franklin.

The first time I saw this album was at the public library in 1976. I actually borrowed it because I didn't know that Natalie had recorded an album after "Inseparable." When I brought it home, laid it on the turntable and heard that little music box opening from "Mr. Melody," I was in for more of a surprise than I had anticipated. This album, her second consecutive Gold album, had me smitten with its tender lyrics, awesome arrangements, great production and impeccable vocal delivery.

The songs that really did it for me were the singles, "Mr. Melody" (R&B, #10) with its great scatting and "Sophisticated Lady" (R&B, #1) with its punchy horns as well as "No Plans for the Future" with its perfectly interpreted heartache, "Can We Get Together Again," a "This Will Be" sound-alike and of course, a RE-reading of Billy Holiday's mezmerizing and heartwrenching, "Good Morning Heartache." This album would further cement what greatness would follow over the following 3 years in the form of two Platinum and three more Gold records.

If you are a fan of that Old School/Gospel-ish R&B of the mid to late 70's a la Aretha, you will not be disappointed with any of Cole's works from this era when music was music and Soul singers could really, really SANG. This album, her second, is a rare treasure from her very early catalog.

This is one hell of an album. Even though Aretha's influence is still pretty strong here, this is one of Natalie's best best albums. Her second gold album, "Natalie" featured two hit releases. "Mr. Melody," her first attempt at dabbling into her jazzy roots was a top 5 smash, and is a favorite of longtime fans. The funky "Sophisticated Lady" went all the way to the top, spurred on by Natalie's sexy, soulful growls and wails. Pushed by a funky rhythm section, "Lady" set the vinyl ablaze. But there's plenty more to savor. "Not Like Mine" finds her in pure Aretha mode,nonetheless, she works it out. Check out the way she wails before each chorus! Her interpretation of "Good Morning Heartache" is wonderful, especially when you consider it's about drug use. This album, as Natalie has pointed out in her book, is filled with love. You can feel it in all of her early albums, and "Natalie" is no exception.
