"It's the most wonderful time of the year." Andy Williams has been reminding us annually for over 40 years. Concord Records is distributing this compilation of the veteran crooner's live holiday performances. Representing the period 1962-1974, the program finds Williams in fine form. These are cherished memories. A children's choir, piano trio, adult chorus, studio orchestra and strings complement the singer's performance. The applause at the end of each track reminds us that Williams has remained personable and warm through every appearance. He's still performing and making millions of enthusiastic fans very happy. His bio points out that Williams released his first album in 1956 and hosted his first television special three years later. Over the years, a dozen Christmas albums have supplemented his holiday television specials to provide family entertainment to generations. The large audience has always been just right for Andy Williams, and everyone comes away fully satisfied: especially during the holiday season. "What are you doing New Year's Eve?"

Track Listing: The Most Wonderful Time of the Year; The Christmas Song; White Christmas; Oh, Holy Night; Happy Holidays/It's The Holiday Season; Silent Night; Moonlight in Vermont; Village of St. Bernadette; The Skater's Waltz; Ave Maria; Some Children See Him; You Meet the Nicest People; Mary's Boy Child; What Are You Doing New Year's Eve?; May Each Day.
