A very cool package of work from the legendary Johnny Mathis – and one that brings together a fair bit of material that never made it onto his full length LPs! The set's filled with singles that Mathis recorded during his landmark run for Columbia
Records – not just well-known a-sides, but also the b-sides too – and a number of lesser-known cuts that were unusual singles, but never scored big at the time – making for a rich range of discovery, even if you think you know Johnny's hits! The early material has that classic Columbia
vibe – lush strings with an undercurrent of jazz – and those impeccable Mathis vocals throughout – and later material brings in a bit more soul, especially in the 70s. The 4CD package features 87 tracks in all – plus a booklet that contains notes and release information on each track. Titles include "You Are Beautiful", "Someone", "Story Of Our Love", "You Are Everything To Me", "I Love Her That's Why", "Gina", "Quiet Girl", "This Way Mary", "Christmas In The City Of Angels", "Take Good Care Of Her", "Walking Tall", "Among The First To Know", "Long Winter Nights
", and lots more!
