Editorial Reviews

Rapture reunited Johnny with noted arranger and conductor Don Costa, who had steadily proved his worth with a succession of albums by Frank Sinatra, Dinah Washington and Sarah Vaughan, among others. He had already found success with Johnny on a number of singles, with this album also representing a return to the all ballad format that had proved so successful in the past. There are no surprises, either in the choice of the material or Johnnys performance; rather this is the highly crafted and well executed album we had come to expect. The fourteenth studio album of his career, it would go on to hit a peak of #12 on the Billboard chart.

I've been listening to Johnny Mathis since I was in Jr. High, ca. 1962. I have every album up until 1970 or so. I believe this is his greatest album to that date. All one has to do is to listen to the differences between when Percy Faith or Glenn Osser arranged for him to see that Don Costa's arrangements are the most creative and innovative among these fine arrangers. Just listen to Stella by Starlight, Stars Fell on Alabama or Lament and you'll hear Costa's genius at work. Also, Johnny's ability to meld lines of lyrics through portamento pitch connection has evolved from his earlier albums to a level of amazing musicianship. He has reached the apex of his classical vocal technique, range and diction. My highest recommendation for a Johnny Mathis album of gorgeous, slow love songs.

This CD is a must for a Mathis music lover. Every single track is perfection. If I had to pick favorites it would be difficult, however I particularly love "I Was Telling Her About You", "Love Me As Though There Were No Tomorrow" and "Lost In Loveliness". It's a gem----Johnny at his best.

Johnny Mathis "Rapture" is a great record, This recording scores on all levels
Like so many others I love Mathis voice and phrasing-the guy is great.
The song selection is wonderful and the whole record just shines.
I do not recall the year it was recorded or released,but it hold up very well indeed.
The transfer is also so clear and exciting-this recording everyone should have.

I have been playing this in my car and at work nonstop. It just doesn't get old or tiresome. JM's voice was young and such a delight. His training in opera is evident. Masterful phrasing from such an angelic voice has never been matched.

This song has probably caused more children to be born than most others. The song is sensual and romantic. Yum!
