This megahit album spent 490 weeks on the Billboard charts thanks to such romantic hits as 'Chances Are', 'Wonderful! Wonderful!', and 'It's Not For Me To Say'. Sure, it may be a bit schmaltzy for everday listening, but if you're in the mood for love, no man could set the scene any better than velvet-voiced Johnny.
The success of this compilation inspired producers to put out more “greatest hits” collections and therefore had a permanent impact on the business. Mathis is still performing and looking great at 72.
