Johnny Mathis....320 Kbps

This JM  L/P is one that I have not heard before (courtesy of Lesley) and I think that it is about the best one I have heard....It seems he went into the recording studio and decided to let his hair down and have some fun !!....Gone are the technical bits and it seems to me he is having a ball !!
 I "Googled" the cover and it seems that the original L/P was a Double one !!!....see below !!
I Just love it and I wish he had done more like that....If anybody has got the other L/P be great to have it !!!!! Full title is "The Rhythms and Ballads Of Broadway "
"Love Eyes" is a track to remember "Mathis" like you've never heard before !!!

This one is also new to me provided by Bob.....I've listened to it a couple of times and cant make up my mind about it.....I reckon I shall have to listen to it more...I do like it but maybe because there is no instruments in it...YES I know what Acapella means just voices harmonising but it seems to lack that "Beat" that I like and every track seems to be the same.....Comments please would be great !!!......Don't know much about them so let the back of the L/P enlighten !!!
