(C45s)Chances Are/ The Twelfth Of Never by Johnny Mathis

Label: Columbia 40993 Year: 1957
Factory sleeve included
Condition: EX+ $12.00
Chances Are/ The Twelfth Of NeverThe A side may very well be Johnny Mathis' greatest hit ever (according to Billboard chart data), but I give this single 2 stars because the B side is such a special, perfect expression of love in a suitably soft-shoe arrangement courtesy of Ray Conniff and His Orchestra. There are many versions of "Twelfth" out there, but on this one Mathis sounds like he's singing for the gods... No other version touches this one. Note: This copy comes in a vintage Columbia Records factory sleeve. It has Near Mint labels with just very light touches of ringwear. The vinyl (styrene) looks almost Near Mint, with only a few superficial scuffs to detract from the appearance. Unfortunately, this is not the "Near Mint or better audio" copy I had hoped for. There's enough styrene-related distortion to lower the overall grade to EX, but I still quite enjoyed listening to it, and Jackie � in the other room � said it sounded terrific from there (for what that's worth :-) On a second listen, I'd call "Twelfth"'s audio a strong EX.
