Johnny Mathis...320 Kbps

With the event of "Disco" most of the top recording singers decided to give it a go...this is "Johnny Mathis" effort !!.....Nearly all the L/P's I have heard featuring the Disco sound seem to concentrate purely on that "Strolling Disco Beat" as I call it leaving the singer in the background....but I supose it was a good "Bandwaggon" to get on at the time...and despite all I am saying some good tracks have been produced by different singers in the "Disco" Mode !!
And Johnny does some good ones on this one...Seems that the "Standard" songs are a good bet for the "Strolling Disco Beat"we have two on here "Night And Day" & "That Old Black Magic"!!......Not all Tracks Are "Disco"...some nice typical JM songs !!...notably "New York State Of Mind " !!!

1. No One But The One You Love
2. Night And Day
3. Love
4. My Body Keeps Changing My Mind
5. New York State Of Mind

1. She Believes In Me

4. To The Ends Of The Earth
5. Heart Soul Body And Mind

Re-Post Requested By Cluttered Mind

These are tracks from the 50's...there is no info on the back sleeve about them but I used to have a couple of the tracks on a 78rpm which as I said before "accident on my bike" which smashed quite a few of them...Also on a few of the tracks you have a sax doing a solo bit and I remember on the label the orch was conducted by a "Dick Stabile"and the Sax I think is an Alto Sax is featured on quite a few....I think it's an Alto it's not a "Raspy" sound like the Tenor Sax....Its like the "Sloping Sax's" of the "Billy May's Orch" !!
