Album Review

The title may be a little presumptuous, but The Ultimate Hits Collection lives up to its billing. Spanning over 20 years, from Johnny Mathis' first entry on the charts ("Wonderful! Wonderful!") in 1957, to his last chart-topper ("Too Much, Too Little, Too Late") in 1978, the collection offers no less than 18 hits. Yes, there are some hits missing, such as the Top Ten singles "Gina" and "What Will Mary Say," but the majority of the heavy-hitters are here: "It's Not for Me to Say," "Chances Are," "The Twelfth of Never," "Wild Is the Wind," "A Certain Smile," "Misty," and "Maria." The original 1962 collection, Johnny's Greatest Hits, remains the definitive Mathis collection, but this is a good substitute, especially for listeners who want to hear songs released after 1962.

Johnny Mathis Ultimate Hits

This man's voice is still incredible! His music, timeless. He is a true treasure!


This man is an absolute gem. I don't think I have ever heard a more beautiful male singing voice, he astonishes. If you have never heard the total work of art called 99 Miles from L. A. , it alone is worth the price of this album. Fantastic classical guitar backing him up, picturesque lyrics, gentle rhythm, great orchestral backup, all culminated by Mathis' inimitable, uncomparable singing voice. A true wonder. When Johnny was a youngster his parents hired a high level voice instructor in San Francisco. After some period of time, they could no longer afford him. This wonderful voice coach didn't care. He recognized the amazing talent that Johnny had, and stayed on training him, for free. God bless him.

I've been listening to Mathis for over 55 years. He's timeless ! The best darn crooner of romance songs without question .
I've worn all my old records many years ago.
But now He's singing in my house via I tunes. I just got done listening to Misty, my heart is filled with nostalgia .
Sing it Johnny.

One of the last and most popular in a long line of traditional male vocalists who emerged before the rock-dominated 1960s, Johnny Mathis concentrated on romantic readings of jazz and pop standards for the ever-shrinking adult contemporary audience of the '60s and '70s. Though he debuted with a flurry of singles chart activity, Mathis later made it big in the album market, where a dozen of his LPs hit gold or platinum and over 60 made the charts. While he originally concentrated on theme-oriented...
