Christmas Music Review: The Christmas Music of Johnny Mathis (1993)

This collection is a compendium of songs from Johnny Mathis' Christmas albums over the years.  It starts with the classic "Silent Night."  This is a beautiful song and Mathis does it justice.  He then continues with "Silver Bells" and this song is likewise well done.  He always sings the introductory music lyrics to his songs.  This includes "White Christmas" and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas."  He introduces a couple of new songs, "Marshmallow World" and "The Christmas Waltz."  I would really like to dance to the waltz.  His version of "We Need a Little Christmas" is the best version of this song I have heard.
