Cantstopsinging You handled my favorite Mathis tune with tender loving care.. Thank you for this easy listen, Rik
Reply: Joyce my friend thanks so much. I am so glad you liked this as it is my favorite Johnny Mathis tune also. I have made it a habit to steer clear of his tunes as they have the "Been Done" mark but I just had to sing this one.
