A sealed, mid-1960s stereo pressing of Johnny Mathis' album, Johnny's Greatest Hits
Offered for sale is a sealed stereo mid-1960s pressing of Johnny Mathis’ classic 1958 release, Johnny’s Greatest Hits.
It’s hard to believe today, but when it was released in 1958, Johnny’s Greatest Hits, by Johnny Mathis, was the first-ever greatest hits album. Not only that, but the album stayed on the Billboard album charts for nearly ten years – 490 weeks, second only to Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon.
Original releases of the album were mono-only, and released on Columbia’s “6 eye” label. Sometime later, a rechanneled stereo issue was released. The copy offered for sale is a sealed rechanneled stereo pressing, issued on the mid-1960s Columbia “2 eye” label. The record is still sealed in the original perforated inner sleeve and is unplayed and presumed to be perfectly mint.
The cover is VG++, with just a bit of wear on the edges. This is a nice vintage copy of a classic album.
