A "Best" that really is...

"The ageless wonder gives you the best of several types of music in this compilation from Columbia records. If you like duets, his #1 hit "Too Much, Too Little, Too Late," is here along with the theme song from "Same Time Next Year," (Last Time I Felt Like This) that he recorded with Jayne Oliver. Johnny includes his love of Broadway by offering music from "Chorus Line," and many have hailed his version of the top 40 hit "99 Miles From L.A." better than Art Garfunkel's. One of the best songs on the album is "The Best Days Of My Life," the title song from a previously released effort. Arranger Jack Gold put the orchestration to most of these songs. He blends just the right amount of instrumentation with the enduring voice of an American gem---Johnny Mathis. There is not a clinker in this bunch! By the way, Mathis fans can look for Johnny's 2000 tour with dates already booked in Galveston, Memphis and Madison, Wisconsin."

"Johnny Mathis is an exceptional popular singer, one of our country's finest. He delivers a quality performance every time, and often enhances a song with his singular style. Johnny Mathis is a safe bet when it comes to buying his recordings.
This is a fine, but uneven collection of Johnny's "best." It never errs in performance, but in the quality of the songs themselves. There are mostly outstanding songs here: "Too Much, Too Little, Too Late," "What I Did For Love," "You Light Up My Life," "99 Miles From L.A.," "When a Child Is Born," and "With You I'm Born Again." "Just the Way You Are" is also an outstanding song, but I would have preferred it to be a solo Mathis performance instead of a duet with Deniece Williams.
The remaining songs did not make much of an impression on me, even his duet with Jane Oliver ("The Last Time I Felt Like This"). It's too bad that Columbia/Sony didn't include Johnny's disco version of "Begin the Beguine," which was incredible!"
