Andy Williams' unique vocal gifts have hints of Dean Martin and Perry Como, and a touch of Tony Bennett. His choice of material has always been romantic ballads, but through the passing years he has fortified his romantic baritone with country, rock, and European-flavored settings. 16 Most Requested Songs is true to its title, including all of his best-loved songs from the 1950s and '60s. "Can't Get Used to Losing You" has all the ingredients of the best Andy Williams hits: a catchy tempo and melody, along with Williams' purity of tone and emotion. Rich in feeling, his technique is steady and tactfully restrained. Henry Mancini's "Moon River" (from Breakfast at Tiffany's) floats in a current of misty feelings and enchanting echoes. "Born Free" and "The Impossible Dream" are also typical of Andy Williams' vocal magic. He sings these songs with polish and bravado, creating works of inspiration and hope., Rovi
I think Andy Williams is one of the best singers that have ever graced the airwaves. It is too bad that radio is now filled with lyrics of hate and killing, and with "singers" who cannot sing. Andy has a voice that ranks right up with Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Tony Bennett and Mel Torme. When I was a child I used to watch the Andy Williams show on TV. Andy is a great singer but he also is a funny comedian. It was on Andy Williams's show that the Osmond Brothers were discovered. Anyway, Andy still performs in Branson Missouri, even though he is in his 80's. He sounds GREAT! If you like great singing, then this is the album for you. HAPPY LISTENING!!!
Thank you Andy. R.I.P.

I downloaded 4 songs from this album, this time. However, I have owned this entire album thru the era of 33rpm long play records, then owned it in 8-track, then owned it in cassette, then on CD, and now on my iphone. Andy Williams has such a beautiful voice, and he sings so effortlessly. He reminds me of Perry Como in that. To be able to sing high notes, or low notes, and never a grimace like other singers, or any indication that this is something out of the ordinary for his voice. I like the song, 'Sweet Memories' best on the album because it sounds so much like a eulogy to someone he loved so much. I think this song, plus the Righteous Brothers version of 'Unchained Melody' are perhaps the most beautiful songs of all time. So much emotion in both songs.
