Charming DVD - Wonderful Andy !
N. Bernier | Montréal, QC Canada | 05/30/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This dvd takes you back in time and it is a charming trip indeed! So much talent is displayed before your eyes. The incredible ease of the performances, the relax and joyous atmosphere that emanate from these clips is something to cherish. You can't help but wish for more. Please Mr.Williams a second,third... volume soon. Or better still why not the entire seasons (box sets). Your new generation of fans needs more visual materials to enjoy."
Proof positive that musical talent ONCE existed on TV!

"My mother's favorite singer was Andy Williams when I was growing up so he was perceived by me as a singer for "the older generation." Now that I've entered my forties, I think I've become part of that generation (!), which is why it's so enjoyable to discover DVD's like this. My only remembrance (vague, at best) of Andy on television were his annual Christmas specials. This compilation of sequences from his 1960's television series is wonderful and could have been much longer. There needs to be a cable channel, similar to TV Land, that should broadcast these shows in their entirety. All of the performances are entertaining in an era when talent and warmth were on televised display. It's always great to see the early Osmond Brothers, Bing Crosby, Ella Fitzgerald and others from that era. The quality of the color telecasts are great; this DVD is a perfect companion to Andy's "Best of..." Christmas DVD. Andy, I expect to see a Volume II!...and III! about IV?"
He seems to be just a plain old nice guy.

"His show started the year I was born, and ended before I really got into watching television. Now I can barely contain my frustration that the genre of variety television is gone. The best thing about this DVD is that it gets right to the point; it has a modern-day intro by Mr. Williams himself, then segues immediately into the clips (which also make up the DVD's menu of scenes)- and captions everything, from guest star name to airdate and year. Look for the *4* Osmond brothers (sans Donny, but with baby Marie); Pearl Bailey at her most diva; Carlos Jobim performing "Girl From Ipanema" in Spanish [with Mr. Williams doing so in English]; a "clown makeup" fight with Judy Garland; a marvelous duet with Ella Fitzgerald; and a marvelous 'triplet' with Eddie Fisher and Bobby Darin. Most impressive about the show is the star himself: he seemed (and seems) to be a genuinely kind, genial, humble, humorous guy, and I'm not the least bit surprised that his show enjoyed an amazing nine-year run. Hope he reads this someday."
Tremendous entertainment

"I grew up on Andy Williams. At 46 years of age (not the average age of an Andy Williams fan) I continue to believe he is the most versatile vocalist of our time. This dvd demonstrates the master at work. Consider his style and the effortless way he touches a broad range of notes in "The Way You Look Tonight." His duet with Tony Bennett challenges Bennett fans to place Andy Williams in the number one spot. His duet with Julie Andrews produces a blend so perfect that it runs chills up the spine. A young Bobby Darrin sings with Williams and smiles like a little boy. Any man who watches this dvd will walk away envious of William's smooth voice, suave style, and charismatic personality."
