Best of Andy Williams Christmas music 4 Dec 2002
By John O'Neill - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Can't decide on whether to pick up 1963s "The Christmas Album" or 1965s "Merry Christmas"? Well then this collection, from 1994, may be the way to go. It pulls together many of the best tracks from both those classic releases plus another four tracks from his 1973 third and final holiday release for Columbia, "Christmas Present". Andy Williams has always been a wonderful interpreter of Christmas music, able to handle both the contemporary standards and traditional numbers. His definitive recordings of "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" and "Happy Holiday/The Holiday Season" are included here, along with other numbers that seem linked to Williams forever: "Silver Bells", "My Favorite Things" being two examples.
My only wish is that they had included a few more tracks - while 15 selections may seem like a generous offering, with most of the songs clocking in under 3 minutes we're still left with less than 40 minutes of play time. Certainly there is room for frantic "Kay Thompson's Jingle Bells", "Some Children See Him", and the touching "Sweet Little Jesus Boy". Better yet release both "Andy Williams Christmas Album" (aka the "red" album) and "Merry Christmas" (the "green" album) on one CD. That's the ticket!
Still this is the best of the best from one of the true voices of Christmas and certainly the way to go if you're only going to get ONE Andy Williams Christmas CD.

The Most Wonderful Kind Of Christmas Collection 19 Oct 2001
By P. Kingsriter - Published on
Format: Audio CD
When I was growing up, Andy Williams' "red" yuletide album was the quintessential Christmas record. The instantly recognizable opening chords of the joyful number "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" always greeted us first thing Christmas morning.
Mr. Williams' "Personal Christmas Collection" combines the best of the red album (simply titled "Christmas Album") with hits from his very popular green album (entitled "Merry Christmas"). The Collection is a merry combination of both secular and sacred favorites, and an enthusiastic ode to some of the best holiday music ever written and recorded.
Pick up a copy and start a new tradition of your own!

A must for your holiday collection! 27 Dec 2004
By csm - Published on
Format: Audio CD
My husband surprised me with this record before Christmas and I absolutely love it. If you grew up in the 60s, it's hard to imagine a household from that era that didn't have at least one of Williams' holiday albums to enjoy. This one is such a nice combination of secular and sacred Christmas music and we just love it. I'm so glad that we found this record so that we can pass on the holiday tradition to our own children. What a great way to celebrate the season!

Andy's Best Christmas Collection 24 Nov 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Andy Williams is another great singer who always brings good cheer for Christmas. Over the years I've grown up watching his Christmas specials on television and hearing his Christmas music. If only Nick At Nite or one of the other cable stations would rerun his holiday specials during December!
