I spotted on Amazon that there is yet another spectacular Real Gone Christmas CD release scheduled for this November with SIX of Johnny's Christmas LP's (up until the recent so-so duet CD) called "The Complete Christmas Collection 1958-2010". 

A bit pricey at $40, but, you are getting 6 remastered LP's, although most of us probably already have the first remastered LP masterpiece he did with Percy Faith, but not likely all the rest, especially his 2nd Christmas LP, initially issued on Mercury Records I believe?  I'm wondering if they have the single track Johnny recorded with Mannheim Steamroller (O Tannenbaum) included with this set? 

I'm glad to see that they included BOTH versions of 'When a Child is Born' as well- a key song he does so well (If I had the time and technology, I would make a 'virtually duet' of Johnny and Bing singing it together).

Real Gone never ceases to please those who appreciate Christmas music!

Johnny 

NOTE: Sorry Chip, after I posted this I just realized read in Chip's Tips #15 that this set was listed- I am excited, none the less.

Yes, the 1963 Christmas album was originally released on Mercury Records.

Also yes that the 2001 track with Mannheim Steamroller will be included in the new Real Gone Music compilation.

Looks like Real Gone will be offering some Johnny Mathis- autographed units too, if you haven't already ordered.

Yes, he signed 75 copies of the new 3-CD set and they will go fast. In fact, Gordon told me today that 31 have been sold already, which leaves only 44 left. So if anyone wants it, please order soon.

I have one of the signed copies of the Johnny Mathis Christmas Collection, and the recordings from his Global/Mercury years sound better than they've ever sounded before. I think even the sessions with the great Percy Faith sound even a touch better than the Columbia re-release. An excellent collection to go along with those of Perry Como and Andy Williams as far as the majority of their Christmas music output all in one superb collection. Gordon did very good once again.
