"You Light Up My Life is a very good Johnny Mathis CD that has a good assortment of songs and ballads by the great Johnny Mathis. Johnny Mathis can sing with the best of them; his voice is like listening to silk. The quality of the sound is very good and the artwork is very nicely done. I believe that the artwork uses at least some of the original record album artwork; and that's great. I always like that.
The track set starts with Johnny Mathis delivering "You Light Up My Life" with great sensitivity; and Johnny's excellent diction enhances his performance even further. "Your Light Up My Life," the title track for this CD, is also a major highlight of this excellent album. Great! "Emotion" is a fine duet that Johnny Mathis does with Deniece Williams; together they take this ballad to new heights and I predict that you're going to be very impressed the way I was impressed. They sound wonderful together; and the musical arrangement is very lush without ever drowning them out.
"All I Ever Need" is a moving ballad that always tugs at my heartstrings whenever I hear it; and Johnny Mathis performs this with panache, heart and soul. "Where Or When" is another brilliant tune made so beautiful by Johnny's artistry. Johnny Mathis makes it seem all so easy--but, of course, we know it really wasn't--Johnny's incredible vocal talents enable him to sing complicated ballads with great ease. This is anything but elevator music; and the strings are used to great advantage on "Where Or When."
"Too Much, Too Little, Too Late" is probably Johnny's most famous ballad that he performed with Deniece Williams. "Too Much, Too Little, Too Late" has a melody that stuns me with its beauty; and this torch song about a love gone wrong is classic and timeless. "How Deep Is Your Love" features Johnny Mathis doing a cover of this great song by The Bee Gees from Saturday Night Fever; and this works so well when Johnny and his peers tackle it!
"I Wrote A Symphony On My Guitar" is a number that I never heard before; but it grows on you remarkably quickly. The song has a funky `70s beat that still sounds very good today and Johnny pours his heart out on this ballads. He truly delves deep into this song to make it all his own. "It Was Almost Like A Song" is a tender love ballad that Johnny delivers flawlessly; and the piano arrangement is very pretty and elegant. What a great way to end this album!
Johnny Mathis fans will want this for their collections; and people who just plain appreciate classic pop vocals and love songs will enjoy this album as well.
This Album, remember me good times in the school
