1976 Andy Williams – Andy

Andy is the thirty-sixth studio album by American pop singer Andy Williams, released in the fall of 1976 by Columbia Records. Williams is not as focused on covering pop hits and standards on this album and instead relies mainly on original or lesser-known songs. In the liner notes for the album’s 2002 CD release, writer Richard M. Erickson explains that the album “was recorded at six different studios to accommodate Andy’s touring schedule. One recording session was at a portable studio set up at a Marriott hotel.”
