Andy Williams' unique vocal gifts have hints of Dean Martin and Perry Como, and a touch of Tony Bennett. His choice of material has always been romantic ballads, but through the passing years he has fortified his romantic baritone with country, rock, and European-flavored settings. 16 Most Requested Songs is true to its title, including all of his best-loved songs from the 1950s and '60s.

"Born Free" and "The Impossible Dream" are also typical of Andy Williams' vocal magic. He sings these songs with polish and bravado, creating works of inspiration and hope.

    Loved the CD! I gave it as a gift.

    The only disappointment was that the packaging showed a "Great Value" sticker which was under the cellophane and not removable. I felt like it implied "cheap gift" to the recipient. I saw no indication of the sticker on line when I ordered it.

    The CD itself was wonderful and a huge hit!
