    Johnny Mathis' near 60-year tenure as a core artist at Columbia Records was only interrupted once, when he founded his own production company, Global Records, for a four-year stay at Mercury Records from 1963 to 1967.

    His entire album output for that label —virtually every title rare and out-of-print for decades— is brought back into full focus with the release of the deluxe box set, The Complete Global Albums Collection.

    The box set is amazing! It's a 13-CD clamshell-design package, with personal album-by-album annotations by Johnny Mathis himself. It will be available every¬where on November 18 through Columbia/Legacy.

    During the course of his Global/Mercury period, Johnny released 10 individual LPs, all of which have been digitally remastered for this new box set:

    The Sounds of Christmas (1963)
    Tender Is The Night (1964)
    The Wonderful World of Make-Believe (1964)
    This Is Love (1964)
    Ole (1965)
    Love Is Everything (1965)
    The Sweetheart Tree (international edition, aka Away From Home, 1965)
    The Shadow of Your Smile (1966)
    So Nice (1966)
    Johnny Mathis Sings (1967)

    In addition to these titles, the collection will contain two more volumes of material of essential interest to Mathis collectors and completists:

    Broadway (a "lost" album largely consisting entirely of previously unreleased covers of Broadway show tunes, recorded 1964-1965)
    The Global Singles and Unreleased (two CDs of non-album singles and unreleased songs)
