ANDY WILLIAMS: The Complete Christmas Recordings (2-CD Set)

    Andy Williams didn’t gain the nickname “Mr. Christmas” for nothing. His first Christmas album, 1963’s The Andy Williams Christmas Album, remains one of the most popular holiday releases of all time, vaulting to #1 on the charts and staying there for nine weeks, and re-entering the Christmas charts 10 straight years after that, twice at #1! It also spawned a #1 holiday hit with his rendition of “White Christmas” and offered the definitive rendition of “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year.” His second Christmas album, 1965’s Merry Christmas, also went to #1, this time for “only” three weeks, and re-entered the Christmas charts for five straight years, twice more at #1 (it, too, featured a Christmas charting single, the #18 hit version of “Do You Hear What I Hear?”). Yet, despite all this artistic and commercial success, there has never been a collection that compiled every seasonal side that Andy Williams recorded during his legendary career…until now! Andy Williams: The Complete Christmas Recordings collects all three classic Christmas albums cut for Columbia—the aforementioned LPs The Andy Williams Christmas Album and Merry Christmas plus his 1974 album Christmas Present—plus the Columbia single “Ave Maria,” unreleased Spanish and Italian-language versions of “White Christmas” and, as a special added treat, the 1955 single of “Christmas Is a Feeling in Your Heart/The Wind, the Sand and the Star” that were the first two songs the young singer cut for the Cadence label back in 1955. John Alexander’s notes touch on the many high points of Andy’s career, and the package also includes photos from the Columbia vaults. 42 tracks that will form the cornerstone of any Christmas music collection.
