2 LPs On 1 CD: THE NEARNESS OF YOU (1965)/JOHN GARY SINGS YOUR ALL-TIME FAVORITE SONGS (1965).
Personnel includes: John Gary (vocals); Gordon Jenkins, Dick Reynolds (arrnger, conductor).
Originally released on RCA Records.
Vocalist John Gary had much in common with the laid-back vocal styles of Perry Como, Andy Williams, and Jerry Vale. Unfortunately he never gained the reputation or financial stability they did. In the early '60s Gary covered a wide variety of music that appealed to the easy listening audience. Somehow he got lost in the shuffle when record companies began signing anything Beatle-like. In 2003 Collectables reissued many of his RCA albums that had been out of print for years, as two-fers with original song sequence and cover art. The Nearness of You and John Gary Sings Your All-Time Favorites consist of 24 tried and true standards including "Nearness of You," "You Stepped out of a Dream," "Night and Day," "Star Dust," and "You'll Never Walk Alone." ~ Al Campbell
