About this release

Andy Williams signed to Cadence Records in December 1955 and recorded the eight albums in this box set (‘Sings Steve Allen’, ‘Andy Williams’, ‘Sings Rodgers & Hammerstein’, ‘Two Time Winners’, ‘To You Sweetheart, Aloha’, ‘Lonely Street’, ‘The Village of St Bernadette’ and ‘Under Paris Skies’) before he moved on to Columbia Records in 1961. Aside from ‘Andy Williams’ (a collection of singles), the albums all have a theme, from the songs of Steve Allen and Rodgers & Hammerstein, to Hawaii and Paris, via albums of religious songs and laments.

These early albums showcase Andy’s peerless voice, demonstrating his ability to make any song his own. Featured are his first hit singles, “Canadian Sunset”, “I Like Your Kind Of Love” and “Butterfly”, while the ‘Under Paris Skies’ album features fabulous arrangements by a 27-year-old Quincy Jones.

Presented in facsimiles of the original classic 1950s and 60s album sleeves, the 111 track set also includes FIFTEEN BONUS TRACKS of non-album singles A- and B-sides. The 28 page booklet includes all the original liner notes from the sleeves, as well as annotation by Alan Robinson.
