This album was originally released on a 10" LP format in 1952. This album, in 1954, was later re-released on an extended 12" format. This 12" release featured four extra tracks: "Answer Me My Love," "Hajji Baba," "Pretend," and "Make Her Mine." This extended version of the album was later reissued in 2008.

This album was Cole's first major milestone under Capitol and for his career. The album brought Cole several successful singles such as "Unforgettable" and "Too Young" that became fan favourites in Cole's late career. "Mona Lisa" and "For Sentimental Reasons" were the two major songs that came of out Unforgettable as these were the two that brought Cole to the top of the charts in the mid-1950s.
