Looking Back At Columbia Ballads
The album was really a tribute to the ballads he recorded at Columbia. The "Nice 'N Easy" track, as stated above was substituted for "The Nearness Of You". By the way this is one of the greatest love songs ever written even though the word "love" is never sung! Also, the "Nice 'N Easy" track has the left and right channels reversed for the album so as to match (somewhat) the other 11 tracks. One other thing. "Nice 'N Easy" has a bit of peak distortion on it. I listened to the master and several copies and it was always present.
