If you are looking for the old Barnaby recording of the Williams Brothers, this is not the one to buy... keep looking. This one takes cuts from that classic album, and butchers them to bits. The long medley of Christmas songs, which is probably the reason you are looking for this album, has been hacked into two separate tracks, and is incomplete. Toss in some of Andy's classic recordings in between the Williams Brothers singing, and this Columbia release is a sorry disappointment. Look instead for the Williams Brothers Christmas Album. It has seven tracks that are all sung by the group not interspersed with Andy tracks. Good luck on your hunt!

The Williams Brothers-- Bob, Don, Dïck and Andy (the youngest) were organized in the mid-1930s. After a successful career on radio, in films, as a touring nightclub act and on many early TV guest spots, the group disbanded in 1951 but reunited annually to perform on Andy's NBC-TV variety show. Their most famous recording was as backing singers on Bing Crosby's hit single, "Swingin' on a Star."

The brothers also appear on COLUMBIA Records' 1964 LP, THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF ANDY WILLIAMS (mono: CL 2137; stereo: CS 8937).

Christmas with ANDY WILLIAMS and the WILLIAMS BROTHERS (C 10105) was issued in the early 1970s on a Columbia Special Products label LP.

It opens with a song that for many a holiday season was a tradition, Andy's brass-filled recording of "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year." The still youthful-sounding brothers dash through the snow at a fast clip on a new version of Jingle Bells. Their jazzy style is reminsicent of the Hi-Lo's (sic). This may be an excerpt of a medley.

"Song for the Xmas Tree" brings entirely new lyrics to a British "12 Days" carol that was originally published in 1790. Andy is assisted here by a number of solo voices. "The Holiday Season" is another swingin' highlight of this small set. Andy's three older brothers are equally as talented-- together, they're dynamite!

I bought this because I grew up listening to this record as a child and is a Christmas favorite of mine. Now that we have a turntable again, I wanted to get this on vinyl since it's not available on CD.
