About this release
Crimson Gold presents Johnny Mathis ‘Gold’, the only Johnny Mathis compilation you’ll ever need.
Johnny Mathis is the popular singer-songwriter who began his career with a string of hit singles before going on to achieve further success as an album artist, with dozens of his albums achieving gold or platinum status and an impressive 73 making the US Billboard charts. Decades after his initial success, Mathis remains a much admired figure and continues to be a popular concert attraction today.
This definitive 3CD set features 49 tracks from across Mathis’s career including all of the hits and fan favourites.
CD 1 opens with Mathis’s first UK hit ‘A Certain Smile’ which reached #4 in 1958. CD 1 is packed full of other early Johnny Mathis classics including ‘My Love For You’ (another UK top ten hit), ‘Misty’ and ‘Wonderful! Wonderful!’ recorded with Roy Conniff & His Orchestra.
CD 2 spotlights Johnny Mathis’s career in the 70s with highlights including his duet with Deniece Williams ‘Too Much, Too Little, Too Late’ which was a global hit, peaking at number 3 in the UK charts in 1976. Other stand out singles from the period include ‘Gone, Gone, Gone’ which was yet another top twenty hit in the UK for Mathis. Also included is the UK #1 single ‘When A Child is Born’ which has gone on to become a festive classic.
CD 3 rounds off the set with more classic tracks including ‘Wild Is The Wind’ which would later be covered by David Bowie. Mathis’s takes on songs from the stage are also featured here with tracks including ‘Maria’ and ‘How To Handle A Woman’. The disc ends with a song from Mathis’s most recent studio album (‘Once Before I Go’) which brings the set full circle.
