They may say that this is a "career spanning CD;" but for a talent like Andy Williams it's tough for me to accept this as a real "very best of" retrospective of Andy's wonderful singing. Yes, we do indeed get nothing but superb music here; and Andy's voice is enchanting. Unfortunately, however, if any record label wants to release music that covers the best of Andy's entire career, they would have to release at least a two CD set. This is best seen as a type of retrospective of Andy's career geared toward the more casual fan who wants some of Andy's best songs. On the bright side again, however, the quality of the sound is excellent and that artwork is really nice.

All of the songs on this album are fantastic--there's not a dud in the bunch. "Moon River," a song that Andy always likes to sing, starts off the track set with Andy squarely in the spotlight; and he sings this faultlessly. The strings enhance the musical arrangement, too; I really love Andy's version of "Moon River." The theme from the movie "Love Story" charms me with its beauty; Andy delivers this like the master he always was and always will be! This number leaves nothing to be desired--this music is all THAT good. In addition, "Can't Get Used to Losing You" is a gem; Andy makes this shine brighter than silver and gold combined! He handles key and tempo changes like the master he is. "Born Free" and the love theme from "Romeo and Juliet" also impress me greatly.

I like the love theme from "The Godfather;" and there's yet another highlight when Andy performs "Days of Wine and Roses." "Days of Wine and Roses" is a stunning tune that I could never tire of hearing when Andy sings it. "Music to Watch Girls By" is a "hip and happenin'" tune even after all these years; I really like "Music to Watch Girls By.

I've been a fan of Andy Williams for years and have almost all of his albums and songs - from his 25+ years with Cadence and Columbia (Sony), to later labels. This is a pretty good collection of many of his best and better known songs --- missing are his wonderful and very popular recordings like "More", "Lonely Street", "Are You Sincere", & "Canadian Sunset".

In a recording career that spans more than 50 years, I'm sure it's a bit difficult to choose songs as "the very best". All in all - a great collection and will give newer listeners a great appreciation of this wonderful singer, star, and person.

This is another great CD of Andy Williams select songs and his beautiful voice. This CD also goes along with is new book that just came out. If you want a relaxed Andy Williams singing to you, you won't
go wrong with this CD. The book and CD are wonderful, I am glad I have both, and I am sure anyone buying this CD will enjoy it also.

I cannot believe that the reviewers here that are true Andy Williams Fans for many years apparently did not hear something strange here.I have about 40 Andy Williams cd,s including compilations and I have a terrific ear for Music and these songs are indeed Andy Willaims but if you listen real close then play the original versions you will hear as I did that apparently these were redone by Andy possibly in the 70,s but they are not the original releases.I would advise you to wait for the Essential collection of Andy Williams as that will be the original and Best Collection of this truely outstanding performer.Jerry Vale,Connie Francis and Andy Willaims are and always will be in a class by themselves.

Hearing Andy Williams beautiful voice brought back wonderful memories of listening to him while enjoying dinner with someone special. I still have the old albums but this CD makes it so much easier to bring along to introduce him to other people.
He really is one of the great singers of our time.

I bought a copy for my Mom and one for Me. Growing up, my Mom had Andy's music on the old turntable, and it was a part of the soundtrack of my life. I re-discovered the pleasure of the music of Andy Williams about 10 years ago, and had bought a couple of his CD's. This collection caught my eye for it's inclusion of "Butterfly" (my favorite Andy song) and "Battle Hymn of the Republic". Many of the other songs I already had on other CD's, but this CD sounds so crisp and clear, that there must have been a re-mastering that wasn't evident on other Andy CD's I have.

This collection is great for two groups of fans---those who, like me, have liked Andy's music for a long long time, as the sound quality it top notch, and it's also perfect for someone just discovering this "King of the MOR" artist. It hits all the big songs in his career.

News reaches us today that Andy Williams has died at age 84. There are few of us who weren't somehow affected by this gentle crooner of love songs. This record, among his many, has a fine collection of those songs that he made forever his.

How many memories are stirred by his singing of songs included here, songs such as Moon River, The Days of Wine and Roses, We've Only Just Begun, Dear Heart, the themes form Love Story and The Godfather, and It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year? Andy Williams not only crooned our love stories, but he also presented one of the most enjoyable musical television shows of the past. He is beloved by fellow singers and by all the people he touched.

Andy Williams, gentle singer, gentle spirit, gentleman. He will be missed. Grady Harp, September 12
