Johnny Mathis - Open Fire, Two Guitars (1959)

I think Johnny Mathis is absolutely dreamy... sigh! The first time I heard his beautiful voice was when I was watching the late night movie with my mom and he sang the theme song of the movie - "The Best of Everything". It's been a love affair ever since. This is an awesome album - so soothing and romantic (I've listened to it every Sunday for years now)! And Johnny is accompanied by some great musicians - Al Caiola and Tony Mottola on guitar, and Frank Carroll and Milt Hinton on bass. If you love Johnny Mathis and don't have this album, you really need to get it!
