This is a precious feast to enjoy of delightful '70s love songs, sung and performed with sincerity by beloved pop singer talent Andy Williams. Though not as special or charming as the original performances, Williams gives all of his soul and heart to pull off some stirring renditions of the amiable type to the kind listener. Favorites of the '70s feature the Beatles' "Something," James Taylor's "Fire and Rain," and Elton John's "Your Song." Invigorating at times, the songs seem to achieve the purpose of easing the listener's stress-filled day. Dick Glasser gives much of his time as producer in finding Andy Williams' unique sound, with Artie Butler and Dick Hazard playing a splendid role in the arrangements. A wistful breath of fresh air away from the takeover of entertainers Frank Sinatra and Neil Diamond, the record is a pleasant listening experience for those who appreciate romantic ballads and melancholy orchestra background music. This collection shows just how easy it came to cover love ballads and pop hits in the '70s, giving Williams and his dazzling entertainer style voice the right time to shine during his days of stardom. So turn your lights down low and get with the one you share dreams with, and be prepared to feel the love.
