Real Gone Music and Second Disc Records are proud to kick off a new series celebrating the legendary Johnny Mathis' classic albums of the 1970s and onward with the first-ever expanded CD edition (and standalone U.S. CD premiere!) of the artist's very first LP of the 1970s. Raindrops Keep Fallin' on My Head was titled after Burt Bacharach and Hal David's Academy Award-winning hit from the film Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. On Raindrops, Mathis reinterpreted the popular hits of the day in his signature velvety smooth style, aided and abetted by the lush orchestras of Ernie Freeman and Al Capps, and the production of Columbia Records veteran Jack Gold. In addition to Bacharach and David, also represented by Johnny's hit "Odds and Ends" and "Alfie," the original album features his renditions of songs by Jimmy Webb ("Honey Come Back"), George Harrison ("Something"), Paul Simon ("Bridge Over Troubled Water"), John Barry ("Midnight Cowboy"), and Rod McKuen ("Jean")-a true "Who's Who." The expanded Raindrops Keep Fallin' on My Head has been bolstered with five bonus non-LP singles from Mathis' return to Columbia Records circa 1968-1970, including Bacharach and David's "Whoever You Are, I Love You" from their Tony Award-winning Broadway musical Promises, Promises; Bert Kaempfert's "Night Dreams;" and Gordon Lightfoot's "Wherefore and Why," arranged by Harry Nilsson's frequent collaborator, Perry Botkin, Jr.! The blues they sent to meet you won't defeat you with this newly-expanded edition of one of Johnny's most beloved albums!
