Johnny Mathis / Voice of Romance:The Columbia Original Album Collection

68-discs • Hand-signed by Johnny Mathis • Two unreleased albums

Sony’s Legacy Recordings release Voice of Romance: The Columbia Original Album Collection a massive 68-disc Johnny Mathis career-spanning box set in December.

Mathis signed to Columbia in the mid-fifties, so he has a vast back catalogue. This set includes 62 Columbia albums that have all been remastered and 25 of which are on CD for the first time. Additionally this collection features two previously unreleased albums – one of which is I Love My Lady (w/ Nile Rodgers & Bernard Edwards) – a two-disc collection with 40 previously unreleased songs and Johnny Mathis Sings The Great New American Songbook.

This collection is housed in a lift-off box and each box comes with a numbered certificate HAND-SIGNED by Johnny himself. You also get a 200-page booklet with liner notes and rare photos.

Note that this isn’t officially being released in Europe, so we are paying import prices. However, while expensive, they aren’t bad compared to the US price. Amazon Italy looks to be the best at time of writing.

Voice of Romance: The Columbia Original Album Collection will be released on 8 December 2017.

    John Mathis!

  2. Mark says:

    Johnny Mathis Greatest Hits Volume Four is one of my very favourite albums. That voice!

  3. Steven Robertson says:

    One hell of a set. I am curious to hear the Chic produced album.

  4. richard says:

    No good for me, there are a couple of tracks missing from this that I really like.

  5. Howie says:

    Absolutely fantastic, I ordered this as soon as I heard about it. Merry Christmas to me!

  6. Stupidactingsmart says:

    I’m also intrigued by the Chic tracks, but my word. Sixty-eight discs? I think the biggest box set I own is probably the Isley Brothers T-Neck thing. I really like it but I haven’t played every disc on that yet and I’ve had it for over a year. 68?

  7. Kauwgompie says:

    I want that Chic album but not a box with 67 other discs. Hopefully they will release it as a regular album. Not enough of a Mathis fan to buy this box just for 1 album.

  8. Tom says:

    Looks like a great set. Very smart to have the Chic album as a selling point, in addition to the autographed certificate.

    I’m more of a casual Mathis fan but this is how a set should be done.

  9. Larry Davis says:

    I know 4 of the Chic tracks from 1981…3 are on the Chic box and a 4th is on the Chic 2CD set “Up All Night”… great stuff, interesting that whole album is only 8 tracks!! Are all the songs from the 4CD set of singles on this box?? Always thought he had a good voice but 68 discs?? That’s 8 more than the Elvis box and more than the Johnny Cash Columbia box…

  10. Dean says:

    I legitimately didn’t know who John Mathis in the title was – then read on and saw JOHNNY Mathis. Now him I know. :)

  11. Auntie Sabrina says:

    I Want To Fall In Love or Fall In Love (I want To), It’s Alright To Love Me, Something To Sing About and Love My Lady are on disc 46 Larry Davis.

    • Larry Davis says:

      yes I know…those 4 songs…but that whole album is only 8 songs…the other 4 were never released elsewhere…I was asking about all the tracks from the recent 4CD box “Singles”…are they all on THIS box?? Yeah, like Gene Simmons, he should hand-deliver this thing, haha.

      • Mark says:

        Hi Larry, the 2015 4CD ‘Singles’ box set is not part of this set, which is a shame as it would have made his Columbia years mostly complete [there’s still some singles that have yet to see a CD release, however]. By the way, the Chic produced album is available in its entirety on You Tube in very good sound – good that its finally seeing the light of day officially.

  12. John says:

    Do Johnny Mathis & Gene Simmons hand deliver it?

  13. David Crozier says:

    Can you imagine how much this would be if Paul McCartney released something similar? By FITD standards, about £15,000.

  14. Gregg Mitchell says:

    While I’m a big Mathis fan – and have been patiently waiting for his label to finally officially release the entire unreleased 1981 “I Love My Lady” Chic-written & produced album – I think it’s a bit of a blatant, crass cash grab to include the Chic album only in this box set as a hook/carrot to push sales of a $500 box set – it would be great it Sony made the Chic album also available as a stand-alone single CD – but I won’t hold my breath. Still, that Chic album is amazing and happy more people will finally get to hear it in its entirety – can you imagine the impact it would have had if it had been released as planned way back in 1981 coming off the heels of Diana Ross’ 1980 “Diana” album? Truly a missed opportunity and botched decision by Columbia.

  15. Greig says:

    Wish the Chic produced album was getting a release of it’s own. I don’t know if this set makes that more or less likely to happen now. Hopefully someone, somewhere will see there’s still a lot of people wishing for it.

  16. Greg says:

    I was keen to pick this up until I saw it includes two versions of The Summer Knows. Talk about redundancy – a real deal breaker!!!

    That aside, this is a remarkable set. I know Sony/Columbia has a big reissue program covering official and archival releases for artists like Bob Dylan and Miles Davis but to see so much attention going to an artist like Johnny Mathis is wonderful. I never expected him to get this type of attention and wonder who else might have received (or will receive) similar attention.

  17. Larry Davis says:

    Similar career-spanning boxes covering their entire catalogue over at Sony were given to Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, Tony Bennett, Miles Davis, and now Johnny Mathis…they are pretty cool and budget friendly if you calculate the number of discs in each set…if you don’t mind each disc in a simple cardboard sleeve and replica covers on each one…not like bonus packaging per disc…but the book included in each set is nice and the signed Johnny certificate is a nice addition… Some of the other sets came out after the artists’ deaths…

  18. Michael G says:

    It’s definitely one to buy,have ordered from amazon Germany as the UK amazon price is ridiculous.
    Will be watching who sells it at the lowest price,and will cancel if I can find cheaper.

  19. gwynogue says:

    I’m interested, but price-wise it’s simply a no deal for me.

    Considering the length of albums from the covered period, surely they could fit 2 (maybe even 3) albums on one CD?

    Admittedly it would make it harder to reproduce album artwork/sleeves, but it would make it a less bulky/pricey package.
