Christmas with Johnny Mathis on Vinyl Album

Merry Christmas! Since it is now December and my wife has been playing Christmas music nonstop for almost two months now, I figured I should put up a Christmas album.

Christmas with Johnny Mathis

My wife loves Johnny Mathis. He does have a very distinctive voice and way of singing. It’s very smooth.

This was actually released in 1963 under the name Sounds of Christmas from Mercury Records. In 1971, it was re-released through Columbia as Christmas with Johnny Mathis. Although this version left out two songs from the original, “The Little Drummer Boy” and “Have Reindeer, Will Travel”.

Although I think the packaging is a little scary, this is a good album. As I said above, Johnny Mathis has such a unique voice, you can’t help but like the music.

This album will never be a collectors item I’m sure, but, If you like the traditional, family gathered around the fireplace and turntable type Christmas, then you should have this in your collection. You can get Christmas with Johnny Mathis on vinyl at Musicstack.
