Editorial Reviews

The Artist's Choice is a splendid, double-disc set featuring all of Roger Williams' biggest hits, as well as a select amount of the pianist's favorite tracks. Devoted Williams fans will find this compilation a treasure, but those that want just a taste of his easy listening should stick with MCA's single-disc Greatest Hits collection. Songs included on this 2-CD set: Those Were The Days, Alfie, I Will Wait For You, Hey Jude, Theme From "The Godfather, Part II", The Windmills Of Your Mind, Strangers In The Night, Rainy Days and Mondays, A Taste Of Honey, Talk To The Animals, Them From "Zorba The Greek", Gentle On My Mind, The Shadow Of Your Smile, Time In A Bottle, Dominique, Only You And You Alone, Theme From "New York, New York", Cast Your Fate To The Wind and 26 more.

4.0 out of 5 stars I like this a lot, but... November 7, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I was glad to lay my hands on this collection because the Roger Williams recordings I have are scattered over several LPs and they're getting somewhat scratchy. I was glad to have an old favorite of mine like «Near You» included, - but I miss the Merry Widow Waltz on the reverse side of that 45 r.p.m. - Generally speaking, I find it regrettable that Roger Williams' refined artistry is somewhat obscured, and sometimes even drowned out, by the rather soupy and overblown orchestral accompaniments that he has to drag along on many of his recordings. It seems to me that discretely appropriate accompaninments by a small chamber ensemble (string trio, - not 100 strings, - plus percussion, and one each of oboe, flute, clarinet, bassoon, trumpet and horn) would be much more pleasant and restfully inspiring... Roger Williams is still young isn't he?

5.0 out of 5 stars An album without time! May 17, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Roger Williams has been called Mr. Piano. For all those (I am among included) who grew and grew up in our first childhood steps throughout his easy listening music, still have an eternal debt of infinite gratitude for this charismatic and enthusiast artist, who really immortalized pieces such as Autumn leaves, Strangers in the night, Crying in the chapel, Misty, Till, New York New York, Maria, Evergreen and so many others songs that now belong to legend status.

So if you belong to the new generation (born in the Eighties or Nineties), it would be advisable to get close to this magic universe of this legendary pianist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great collection July 29, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I always liked Roger Williams and wanted some cd's of good popular piano music. This collection fills that void very nicely. As Williams is hard to find on cd, I was very happy to get this one. Enjoy.

This is actually a very old cassette tape from MCA records. I am an avid Roger Williams fan. I have presented him live at the Franciscan Center. I also have two very old cassettes of Roger's Christmas Music. I cannot find any CDs of Christmas music by Roger. Do they exist? I would truly love to get a hold of one. Let me know! His arrangements of of almost any song is terrific, and his Christmas songs, no less so. Surely MCA must have remastered some of these and published them in the CD format. I hope so!
