    Alone Again

    • Year Released: 1972
    Alone Again (Naturally) is an album by American pop singer Andy Williams that was released in September 1972 by Columbia Records. It made its first appearance on the Billboard 200 chart in the issue dated September 30, 1972, and remained on the album chart for 18 weeks, peaking at number 86. For its release in the UK, the album was entitled The First Time Ever (I Saw Your Face), and three of the songs were replaced. The only song on the album ever released as a single by Williams was "Home Lovin' Man", which had already had its chart run on Billboard magazine's list of the 40 most popular Easy Listening songs of the week in the U.S. back in 1970, when it reached number 10. The song had also reached number seven on the UK singles chart by the end of that year. Coinciding with its first North American release on a Williams LP, the same recording entered the Easy Listening chart again in the November 4, 1972, issue of Billboard and made it to number 27 during its five weeks there. Alone Again (Naturally) was released on compact disc for the first time as one of two albums on one CD by Collectables Records on February 19, 2002, the other album being Williams's Columbia release from the

    Andy

    • Year Released: 1976
    Andy is an album by American pop singer Andy Williams that was released in the fall of 1976 by Columbia Records. Williams is not as focused on covering pop hits and standards on this album and instead relies mainly on original or lesser-known songs. In the liner notes for the album's 2002 CD release, writer Richard M. Erickson explains that the album "was recorded at six different studios to accommodate Andy's touring schedule. One recording session was at a portable studio set up at a Marriott hotel." Andy was released on compact disc for the first time by Collectables Records in 2002 with eight bonus tracks that were taken from four of Williams's Columbia singles released between 1974 and 1979. Collectables included this CD in a box set entitled Classic Album Collection, Vol. 2, which contains 15 of his studio albums and two compilations and was released on November 29, 2002. Two of those four bonus A-sides made the Billboard charts, including "Love Said Goodbye", which started a seven-week Easy Listening run in the magazine's January 11, 1975, issue that took the song to number 24. The other, "Tell It Like It Is", entered that same chart in the December 20, 1975, issue and

    Andy Williams

    • Year Released: 1958
    Andy Williams is a compilation album by American pop singer Andy Williams that was released early in 1958 by Cadence Records. This first album to compile the singer's material features his first six songs to make the Billboard Hot 100 along with their corresponding B-sides. In "The Music Lover's Guide to Record Collecting", author Dave Thompson writes, "Of additional interest among Cadence LPs of this period was [company founder Archie] Bleyer's insistence on adding droll commentaries" to the cover design. For example, the cover for the album Kenneth Patchen Reads His Poetry quotes Bleyer as saying, "' Puts muscles in your ears.'" Thompson, however, adds that "the most bizarre phrase is surely that which attends Andy Williams' Andy Williams album: 'He's All Male and Catnip to Quail,' Says Archie". The cover photo alongside it shows Williams standing next to a quail and a squatting figure in a lion costume with a man in the far background seated on a stool with his back to the camera. A much simpler cover design featuring the artist's name and photo with a list of the album's contents was eventually released. The album was issued on compact disc for the first time as one of two

    Andy Williams Sings Rodgers and Hammerstein

    • Year Released: 1958
    Andy Williams Sings Rodgers and Hammerstein is an album by American pop singer Andy Williams that was orchestrated and conducted by Alvy West. It was released in February 1958 by Cadence Records and focuses upon songs composed by Richard Rodgers with lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II. When the album was reissued by Cadence in 1963, the Review Panel in the somewhat newly- renamed Billboard magazine updated the rating it was given upon its initial release to reflect the fact that "Williams, a seller of stature," had become "increasingly hot, thanks to regular TV exposure and hits on his current label." Whereas the 1958 review yielded only a four-star rating, the 1963 reissue garnered the magazine's coveted Spotlight Pick, which was given to albums with the greatest sales potential. The album was released on compact disc for the first time by Collectables Records on September 12, 2000, as tracks 13 through 24 on a pairing of two albums on CD with tracks 1 through 12 consisting of Williams's 1958 collection of Cadence Records singles that was simply entitled Andy Williams. All tracks by Richard Rodgers & Oscar Hammerstein II "Some Enchanted Evening", "This Nearly Was Mine", "Bali Ha'i",

    Andy Williams Sings Steve Allen

    • Year Released: 1956
    Andy Williams Sings Steve Allen is an album by American pop singer Andy Williams that was released late in 1956 by Cadence Records. This was his first LP and features songs written or co-written by then-Tonight Show host Steve Allen. The review of the album in the December 22 issue of The Billboard that year reads, "Cover shows only a photo of the singer with no copy and it might have been a better bet to identify the personality." The cover of the 1960 reissue of the album attempts to rectify this situation with the title presented in two lines of large capital letters that sandwich a headshot of Williams this time instead of the seated pose of the original. The album was released on compact disc for the first time as one of two albums on one CD by Collectables Records on September 12, 2000, the other album being Williams's Cadence release from the spring of 1959, Two Time Winners. Collectables included this CD in a box set entitled Classic Album Collection, Vol. 1, which contains 17 of his studio albums and three compilations and was released on June 26, 2001. It was also released as one of two albums on one CD by Ace Records on January 8, 2008, paired this time with a 1958

    Andy Williams' Best

    • Year Released: 1961
    Andy Williams' Best is a compilation album by American pop singer Andy Williams that was released late in 1961 by Cadence Records. This second album to compile the singer's material features 10 songs that made the Billboard Hot 100 along with two of their corresponding B-sides, and the album itself made its first appearance on the Billboard Top LP's chart in the issue dated April 7, 1962, and remained there for 44 weeks, peaking at number 59. In 1965 Columbia Records released a compilation by Williams called Canadian Sunset whose cover had the phrase "formerly titled Andy Williams' Best" underneath the title, but his number one hit "Butterfly" and its top 10 follow-up "I Like Your Kind of Love" that were included on this album were replaced on the Columbia release with the B-sides of two of the other songs here. Andy Williams' Best was issued on compact disc for the first time as one of two albums on one CD by Collectables Records on September 12, 2000, the other album being Williams's Cadence release from the fall of 1960, Under Paris Skies. Collectables included this CD in a box set entitled Classic Album Collection, Vol. 1, which contains 17 of his studio albums and three

    Andy Williams' Dear Heart

    • Year Released: 1965
    Andy Williams' Dear Heart is an album by American pop singer Andy Williams that was released in the spring of 1965 by Columbia Records. It made its first appearance on Billboard magazine's Top LP's chart in the issue dated April 10 of that year and remained on the album chart for 65 weeks, peaking at number four. The name of the album was changed to Andy Williams' Almost There for its release in the UK, where it became Williams's first album chart entry, spending 46 weeks there and peaking at number four. (Two of his previous albums, Days of Wine and Roses and Other TV Requests -- which was retitled Can't Get Used to Losing You and Other Requests for its UK release—and The Great Songs from "My Fair Lady" and Other Broadway Hits, appeared on the album chart in the UK following the success of this album.) Andy Williams' Dear Heart received Gold certification from the Recording Industry Association of America on July 30, 1965. This was Williams's sixth album to receive this award as well as the one to do so the fastest thus far in terms of the amount of time between chart debut and certification, having accomplished this feat in less than four months as compared to the previous

    Andy Williams' Greatest Hits Vol. 2

    • Year Released: 1972
    Andy Williams' Greatest Hits Vol. 2 is a compilation album by American pop singer Andy Williams that was released in the UK in 1972 by the CBS Records division of Columbia. It entered the UK album chart on December 16 of that year and reached number 23 over the course of 10 weeks. The US album that shares this title was released in June 1973 by Columbia Records but had only three of its 11 tracks in common with those on this album and used a different cover photo and design. That version made its first appearance on Billboard magazine's Top LP's chart in the issue dated July 7, 1973, and remained there for five weeks, peaking at number 174. One of the tracks on this album that was not on the US version, "What's the Matter Girl", was released as a single in the UK but did not chart. "God Only Knows" was recorded for the 1967 album Love, Andy, and "It's Impossible" comes from the Love Story album that was released in the US in 1970.

    Andy Williams' Greatest Hits Vol. 2

    • Year Released: 1973
    Andy Williams' Greatest Hits Vol. 2 is a compilation album by American pop singer Andy Williams that was released in June 1973 by Columbia Records. This collection follows in the footsteps of its predecessor, Andy Williams' Greatest Hits, in that it is not limited to his biggest and most recent hit singles, although his final two US Top 40 entries ("(Where Do I Begin) Love Story" and "Speak Softly Love (Love Theme from 'The Godfather')") were included. It also has an album track not released as a single ("The Impossible Dream (The Quest)"), a couple of hits from his time with Cadence Records ("Lonely Street" and "The Village of St. Bernadette"), two other singles that could have been included on the first volume ("In the Arms of Love" and "Music to Watch Girls By"), and two Easy Listening chart entries that never made the Billboard Hot 100 ("Home Lovin' Man" and "Music from across the Way"). The front and back cover design for the LP (by Anne Garner and Norman Seeff) shows Williams as he is bursting through a wall-sized collage of black-and-white images from various periods of his career, mainly involving the Williams Brothers and his variety program. While the front cover does not

    Andy Williams' Newest Hits

    • Year Released: 1966
    Andy Williams' Newest Hits is a compilation album by American pop singer Andy Williams that was released early in 1966 by Columbia Records. This first album to compile the singer's Columbia material made its debut on the Billboard Top LP's chart in the issue dated February 5, 1966, and remained there for 23 weeks, peaking at number 23. A similar collection entitled May Each Day entered the UK album chart the following month, on March 19, and reached number 11 over the course of six weeks. While the cover photo and design of the two releases were the same, there were only five songs that they had in common. Andy Williams' Newest Hits was issued on compact disc for the first time as one of two albums on one CD by Collectables Records on February 5, 2002, the other album being Williams's Columbia release from the fall of 1962, Warm and Willing.

    B Sides and Rarities

    B Sides and Rarities is a compilation album by American pop singer Andy Williams that was released by Collectables Records on May 27, 2003. Although the collection starts out with two 1947 recordings by Kay Thompson and The Williams Brothers, the rest of the material comes from his time at Columbia Records and includes covers of contemporary hits ("Cherish", "If You Could Read My Mind", "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother") as well as lesser-known material from the songwriters of "Can't Get Used to Losing You", "Home Lovin' Man", and "Moon River". One of the rarities included here actually did reach the charts of Billboard magazine. Released as the B-side of the number 13 hit "Hopeless", Williams's recording of "The Peking Theme (So Little Time)" was included in the 1963 film 55 Days at Peking and reached number 115 during the three weeks that it "bubbled under" the Billboard Hot 100 in June of that year. It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song in early 1964, and Williams was asked and did appear to perform at the Oscar ceremony that April but not to sing that song. Instead he sang his number 100 hit from January, "Charade", as well as the song included in the

It debuted on the UK charts shortly thereafter, on May 6, and stayed around for six weeks, peaking at number 33. The song was reissued there in 1999 and spent another six weeks on the chart, this time reaching number nine.

    Canadian Sunset

    • Year Released: 1965
    Canadian Sunset is a compilation album by American pop singer Andy Williams that was released in the spring of 1965 by Columbia Records. The cover bears the phrase "formerly titled Andy Williams' Best" underneath the title, suggesting that the same songs can be found here that were on that 1961 release by Cadence Records, but his number one hit "Butterfly" and its top 10 follow-up "I Like Your Kind of Love" that were included on the Cadence album were replaced on this release with the B-sides of two of the other songs here. This album made its first appearance on the Billboard Top LP's chart in the issue dated July 3, 1965, and remained there for six weeks, peaking at number 112.

    Christmas Present

    • Year Released: 1974
    Christmas Present is a Christmas album by American pop singer Andy Williams that was released in late 1974 by Columbia Records. A brief blurb in Billboard magazine's Inside Track column in that year's November 23 issue revealed the album's television tie-in: "'Christmas Present' is title [sic] of Andy Williams' 11th Yule show, airing on NBC-TV Dec. 11". An article entitled "MOR Artists Are Ailing" in that same issue describes the hopes that the record company had for the album: "Columbia is releasing Andy Williams' newest LP, 'Christmas Present,' with considerable advance orders and expects it to become a holiday classic to continue the string of album winners for the artist." Williams's two previous solo Christmas LPs (The Andy Williams Christmas Album and Merry Christmas) reached number one on Billboard magazine's Christmas Albums chart, but in 1974 the magazine reverted to incorporating holiday releases into its Top LP's & Tapes rankings as well as its Bubbling Under the Top LP's chart, which, according to Joel Whitburn, "listed albums that were on the rise in sales that did not quite achieve the sales necessary to make Billboard's main 200-position pop albums chart."

    Close Enough for Love

    • Year Released: 1986
    Close Enough for Love is an album by American pop singer Andy Williams that was released in 1986 by Atco Records. Williams writes in the liner notes, "This is essentially a ‘live’ album. Our objective was to get real performances from both the orchestra and myself, as opposed to the sometimes sterile perfection of countless overdubs and tracking sessions. To my amazement, we used the first takes on most of the songs. The excitement of first hearing Jeremy's arrangements affected me so, that I found a quality in my singing that wasn't there in later takes." The phrase "Romantic Music from the Movies" on the back of the CD booklet conveys the theme of the album, with half of the songs dating from the decade previous to its release and the other half going back to the era of traditional pop. Williams even updates the title songs from two of his albums, "Moon River" and "Days of Wine and Roses", with what, for 1986, were very modern adult contemporary arrangements. "My Funny Valentine" was first performed in the 1937 Broadway musical Babes in Arms. "Change Partners" was first sung by Fred Astaire for the 1938 film Carefree, and his recording spent two weeks at number one after entering

    Danny Boy and Other Songs I Love to Sing

    • Year Released: 1962
    Danny Boy and Other Songs I Love to Sing is an album by American pop singer Andy Williams that was released early in 1962 by Columbia Records. This first project for the label after leaving Cadence Records made its debut on Billboard magazine's Top LP's chart in the issue dated March 3 of that year and stayed around for 36 weeks, eventually reaching number 19. The album's first single, "Danny Boy", debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the issue dated October 30, 1961, and reached number 64 during its six-week stay. It fared even better as his first single to appear on Billboard's recently christened Easy Listening chart, peaking at number 15 and only hinting at the even greater success Williams would have with the Easy Listening audience. The album was released on compact disc for the first time by Sony Music Distribution on May 15, 2001, as tracks 1 through 12 on a pairing of two albums on one CD with tracks 13 through 24 consisting of Williams's Columbia album from April 1962, Moon River and Other Great Movie Themes. It was also released as one of two albums on one CD by Collectables Records on February 5, 2002, the other album being Williams's Columbia album from January

    Greatest Hits

    • Year Released: 1970
    Andy Williams' Greatest Hits is a compilation album by American pop singer Andy Williams that was released in early 1970 by Columbia Records. It was not, however, as its title might suggest, strictly a hit singles compilation, although some of his biggest songs since joining Columbia (such as the Easy Listening number ones "Can't Get Used to Losing You" and "Happy Heart") were included. A couple of selections ("Born Free" and "More") were never released as singles by Williams, and his signature song, "Moon River", was released in the 7-inch single format but only for jukeboxes. His six Cadence singles that made the Top 10 on Billboard magazine's Hot 100 are passed over for the inclusion of his number 11 hit from that label, "Hawaiian Wedding Song", and 17 of his Columbia recordings that made the Hot 100 up until 1970 are left out here in favor of "Charade", which spent its one week on the chart at number 100. The most noticeable change that was made for the UK release of the album was the replacement of the cover sketch with the photo of Williams found in the gatefold section of the album jacket of the US release. The other major difference was the fact that Williams's recording of

    • Year Released: 1984
    Greatest Love Classics is an album by American pop singer Andy Williams that was released in 1984 by EMI Records. Williams writes in the liner notes, "All through my life I have known and loved the great classic melodies and wished I could sing them. So when Tony Hiller and Nicky Graham contacted me with some of these melodies set to lyrics, they immediately caught my imagination." Although the album did not make it onto the Billboard 200 chart in the U.S., it did enter the U.K. album chart on October 27, 1984, and reach number 22 during its 10 weeks there. On November 12, 1984, the album was awarded with Silver certification by the British Phonographic Industry for sales of 60,000 units in the U.K., and in 1995 it was released on compact disc. All titles arranged and adapted by Tony Hiller & Nicky Graham; all lyrics by Hiller & Graham; original concept by Hiller. All tracks feature the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra led by Raymond Cohen except "Another Winter's Day" featuring Stuart Calvert on piano and "Vino de Amor" featuring Carmelo Luggeri and Terry Taylor on guitars. John McCarthy directed the Ambrosian Opera Chorus on "Words". Also featured on various tracks are:

    I Don't Remember Ever Growing Up

    • Year Released: 2007
    I Don't Remember Ever Growing Up is an album by American pop singer Andy Williams which was released in the UK by the Demon Music Group in 2007. In the liner notes of the album Williams writes, "Over the past few years I have come across songs that I really wanted to record. I picked 13 of my favorites and set out to make a new record." While the title track is the only new song, the other 12 selections were chart hits for other artists or, as is the case with "Desperado" by the Eagles, received critical acclaim without having been released as a single. Neil Sedaka's first recording of "Breaking Up Is Hard to Do" reached number one on Billboard magazine's Hot 100 in 1962, but on this album Williams pays tribute to Sedaka's much slower 1975 version that went to number one on the magazine's Adult Contemporary chart and got as high as number eight pop. "The Shadow of Your Smile" is the title track from Williams's spring of 1966 release, and "Desperado" comes from the 1973 album of the same name by the Eagles. Rod Stewart's first recording of "I Don't Want to Talk About It" was released in 1979 and peaked at number 46 on the pop chart, but his 1990 remake, while not a Hot 100 hit, did

    I Still Believe in Santa Claus

    • Year Released: 1990
    I Still Believe in Santa Claus is a Christmas album by American pop singer Andy Williams that was released by Curb Records in 1990. As with his 1965 holiday LP Merry Christmas, this album focuses exclusively on 20th century compositions, including two new songs ("Christmas Needs Love to Be Christmas" and "My Christmas Vow (This Is My Promise)", which Williams describes in the liner notes as "a new lyric set to an old Hawaiian melody"). "Toyland" originated in the 1903 operetta Babes in Toyland. "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town" by George Hall & the Hotel Taft Orchestra with Sonny Schuyler on vocal is the only recording of the song to have charted in conjunction with its publication in 1934, reaching number 12. "When You Wish upon a Star" won the Academy Award for Best Original Song for its inclusion in the 1940 film Pinocchio and had separate renditions make the charts that same year by Cliff Edwards, Horace Heidt, Guy Lombardo, and Glenn Miller, and Bing Crosby's recording of "I'll Be Home for Christmas" spent two weeks at number three upon its first release in 1943. In 1949, recordings of "Blue Christmas" by Russ Morgan, Ernest Tubb, and Hugo Winterhalter made the Billboard charts.

    Let's Love While We Can

    • Year Released: 1980
    Let's Love While We Can is an album by American pop singer Andy Williams that was released in the U.K. in 1980 by CBS Records. For this project Williams eschews covering well-known pop hits and standards and relies mostly on original or lesser-known Country songs. On June 21, 2004, Let's Love While We Can became available as one of two albums on one CD by Sony Music Distribution, the other album being Williams's Columbia release from the fall of 1974, You Lay So Easy on My Mind. Two songs from this album, "Jason" and "I'll Never Love Anyone Anymore", were included as bonus tracks on the 2002 CD release of Williams's previous album, Andy. Barbara Fairchild entered the Country singles chart with "Let's Love While We Can" in the issue of Billboard magazine dated May 10, 1975, and reached number 52 over the course of 10 weeks. "Railway Hotel" first appeared on Mike Batt's 1977 album Schizophonia, and "Love Is a Cold Wind" was recorded by Roy Orbison for his 1979 album Laminar Flow. "Beside Me" by Steve Wariner made its first appearance on the Country singles chart in the August 4, 1979, issue of Billboard and got as high as number 60 during its seven weeks there. James Brown's

    Lonely Street

    • Year Released: 1959
    Lonely Street is an album by American pop singer Andy Williams that was released in late 1959 by Cadence Records. This, his fifth LP of new material for the label, is described by William Ruhlmann on AllMusic.com as "an album full of songs of lost love and loneliness that found Williams using more of the Mel Tormé-like foggy lower register of his voice." The liner notes on the back of the album jacket read, "The selections in Lonely Street, Andy confides, are those for which he feels a special affection. Every vocalist has a few personal favorites... and it is quite clear to the listener that this collection presents songs which Andy Williams believes, feels -- and loves." Cadence Records founder Archie Bleyer describes the album's title track as a "song from Nashville, which I first heard at the Everly Brothers' home on one of my trips to that city." He later conducted Williams's recording of "Lonely Street" on August 23, 1959, and the song was released as a single with another song recorded at that session, "Summer Love", as its B-side. The A-side entered the Hot 100 in Billboard magazine in the issue dated September 7 of that year and stayed on the chart for 16 weeks, peaking at

    Merry Christmas

    • Year Released: 1965
    Merry Christmas is a Christmas album by American pop singer Andy Williams that was released by Columbia Records in 1965. This, his second holiday LP, is focused exclusively on 20th century compositions, unlike 1963's The Andy Williams Christmas Album, which, of its 12 tracks, had six with origins predating the turn of the century. For the six consecutive holiday seasons from 1965 through 1970, Merry Christmas charted on Billboard magazine's special year-end weekly Christmas Albums sales chart. The album spent two weeks as the number one selling Christmas album during the holiday season of 1966 and one week atop that same chart in 1969. The single from the album, "Do You Hear What I Hear?", reached number 18 on the Christmas Singles chart in 1965. On May 23, 1968, Merry Christmas was certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America for sales of 500,000 copies in the United States.

It made its first appearance on Billboard magazine's Top LP's chart in the issue dated May 12 of that year and remained on the album chart for 176 weeks (the longest chart run of any of his albums), peaking at number 3. The album received Gold certification from the Recording Industry Association of America on October 14, 1963, and thus became Williams's earliest recording to achieve this honor but not, however, the first to do so.

Moon River and Other Great Movie Themes was released on compact disc for the first time by Columbia in 1987.

    • Year Released: 2009
    Moon River: The Very Best of Andy Williams is a compilation album by American pop singer Andy Williams that was released on October 13, 2009. A note from Williams inside the CD booklet explains that the album "was put together to coincide with my memoir Moon River and Me, published by Viking/Penguin. It includes many of the songs that you made hits. I truly appreciate that, and I hope you enjoy the songs we selected for this CD." The collection covers a wide assortment of his material, including crossover hits ("Can't Get Used to Losing You" and "(Where Do I Begin) Love Story"), stabs at the youth market ("Butterfly" and "Music to Watch Girls By"), a pair of Mancini-Mercer Oscar winners ("Days of Wine and Roses" and "Moon River"), a Christmas classic ("It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year"), and a eulogy to the late Robert F. Kennedy ("Battle Hymn of the Republic".). A 24-track compilation album released in conjunction with the book publication in the UK was entitled The Very Best of Andy Williams and had the same cover photo and design but had only nine of the 18 tracks on this album in common.

    Nashville

    Nashville is an album by American pop singer Andy Williams that was released by Curb Records in 1991.. It's Williams's second album of Country music, the first being You Lay So Easy on My Mind in 1974, and was reissued with a different track order under the title Best of Country on September 7, 1999. The two songs that Williams covers on the album that had already been chart hits for other artists both went to number one on the Country chart in 1989. One of them, "If I Had You" by Alabama, was, in fact, knocked out of the number one spot by the other, Rodney Crowell's "After All This Time", in May of that year. Two other songs here have been covered by other artists. "If I Had Only Known" was also recorded by Reba McEntire in 1991 for her album For My Broken Heart, and "Still Under the Weather" was later recorded by Shania Twain for her self-titled debut album.

It made its first appearance on the Top LP's chart in the issue of Billboard magazine dated June 13, 1970, and remained on the album chart for 19 weeks, peaking at number 43.

They pinpoint moments in our time. On this album I have chosen 20 songs that do just that. I hope you like them." While there was one new song ("Sad"), the collection was otherwise a balanced mix of album cuts and chart hits from his years with Columbia Records, including the seven top 10 UK singles he'd had during this period.

    The Andy Williams Christmas Album

    • Year Released: 1963
    The Andy Williams Christmas Album is the first Christmas holiday album released by singer Andy Williams. It was issued by Columbia Records in 1963, and it would prove to be the first of eight Christmas albums released by Williams. Though it was also the album that introduced Williams' perennial holiday classic "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year", Columbia instead opted to release Williams' cover of "White Christmas" as the album's promotional single at the time. From 1963 through 1973, Billboard magazine published special weekly Christmas Albums and Christmas Singles sales charts. For all five weeks that these special charts were published in 1963 (for the weeks ending November 30, 1963 through December 28, 1963), The Andy Williams Christmas Album was the number one selling Christmas album, while Williams' cover of "White Christmas" was the number one selling Christmas single. The Andy Williams Christmas Album spent three weeks as the number one selling Christmas album during the holiday season of 1964, and one week as the number one selling Christmas album during the holiday season of 1965.

It made its first appearance on the Top LP's chart in the issue of Billboard magazine dated November 14, 1970, and remained on the album chart for 17 weeks, peaking at number 81. It entered the UK album chart the following month, on December 5, and reached number 10 over the course of six weeks. In his review on AllMusic.com, William Ruhlmann writes that "The Andy Williams Show LP was not a soundtrack recording from the TV series, and it was not really a live album, although it gets categorized as such. What appears to be the case is that Columbia Records took a group of Williams' studio recordings, most of them made during the summer of 1970 and consisting of his versions of recent soft rock hits, and added a lot of canned applause along with some of the kind of musical interludes used to usher numbers on and off on the show, including bits of its "Moon River" theme music at the start and the finish."

    The Andy Williams Sound of Music is a double compilation album by American pop singer Andy Williams that was released early in 1969 by Columbia Records. Although seven of the 21 tracks date back to his years with Cadence Records, where he racked up a half a dozen top 10 pop hits, the selections here are more in the vein of Standards or Easy Listening fare, as exemplified by the two charting singles included -- "On the Street Where You Live" and "Quiet Nights of Quiet Stars (Corcovado)". The album made its first appearance on the Billboard Top LP's chart in the issue dated February 1, 1969, and remained there for seven weeks, peaking at number 139, and it entered the UK album chart on January 24, 1970, and reached number 22 there over the course of nine weeks. The plan to use the collection to promote Williams's previous Columbia releases was explained in an article in the issue of Billboard magazine dated November 23, 1968: "Andy Williams' 18 Columbia albums are featured in an extensive promotion being sparked by The Andy Williams Sound of Music, a special two-record gift package....
