iTunes Editors’ Notes

For sheer grace of delivery and sweetness of timbre, Andy Williams set a standard that few male vocalists of his era could equal. His impeccable phrasing was matched by his skill at finding the heart of a lyric and making its emotions feel genuine. This collection gathers Williams’ best-loved tunes from 1958 to 1968, the period when he had his greatest impact as a recording artist and TV star. From the dreamy tropical strains of “The Hawaiian Wedding Song (Ke Kali Ne Au)” through the buoyant joy of “Happy Heart,” the songs trace a career built on quality material, smooth delivery, and warm, affable style. Williams was unafraid to embrace old-fashioned emotion, whether the mood was heroic (“Born Free”), romantic (“More”), or sentimental (“May Each Day”). He leavened his balladeer style with touches of light pop/rock, evident in “Almost There” and “Can’t Get Used to Losing You.” Most of all, he'll be remembered for his sublime rendition of Henry Mancini and Johnny Mercer’s “Moon River,” among the most haunting expressions of idealism ever recorded. Williams achieved grandeur in his performances without ever losing his boy-next-door charm.

Customer Reviews

Andy....one of the greatest and so under-rated....

Hearing the voice of Andy Williams will always take me out of any "so-so" mood and put me in a great mood. His style is so relaxing and so unique. There is just something so very special about anything that he sings. Andy's voice and his arrangements turn average songs into classics. Andy is a true legend. Joe in NH.

An engaging crooner, TV personality, and entrepreneur, Andy Williams was one of the most bankable and popular singers of his era. With his laid-back delivery, supple voice, and amiable charm, Williams rode a wave of success that took him from a childhood vocal act with his brothers to worldwide fame as a solo artist, eventually finding latter-day success as a theater impresario in Branson, Missouri.
