Johnny Mathis 33 Greatest Hits on 180g Import 2LP
A sublime vocalist whose approach to pop music transcends passing fads and trends, Johnny Mathis has performed songs in an incredible variety of styles and categories - from music composed for stage and film to golden era jazz standards, contemporary pop hits, and holiday music both sacred and secular - assuring his reputation as one of the most enduring traditional pop vocalists in music history.
Mathis was still a teenager when he signed with Columbia Records in 1956, first entering the Pop charts with his inaugural Columbia single, "Wonderful! Wonderful!" the following year. Peaking at #14, "Wonderful! Wonderful!" laid the foundation for one of the most remarkable careers in pop music history and a string of successful singles like "It's Not For Me To Say," "Chances Are," "The Twelfth Of Never," "Misty" and many others.
Mathis had 18 Top 40 hits between 1957 and 1963 and 19 Top 40 albums between 1957 and 1978, earning 10 gold, 4 platinum and 2 multi-platinum awards from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) along the way.
