Product Description

Amazon.ca

Andy Williams, venerable singing star of countless TV holiday specials, performs onstage at his own theater in Branson, Missouri, before an adoring audience in 1993. Decked out in a succession of sweaters and scarves, Williams does 25 Christmas classics, dances with women wearing reindeer headdresses, sings along with a children's chorus, and welcomes special guests Lorrie Morgan and the Osmond Brothers (who show up wearing jackets featuring rhinestone poinsettias and candy canes). A number of youthful men and women appear throughout in various production numbers, usually dressed as Christmas carolers or partygoers (think more scarves and sweaters), while the band performs on a stage decorated with Christmas trees and lots of fake snow. This is a very professional production, and if it's schmaltzy and utterly middle-of-the-road, that's no doubt what Williams intended. --Robert J. McNamara

5.0 out of 5 stars CHRISTMAS MUSIC STANDS FOR ANDY WILLIAMS Nov. 16 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
No singer in America can bring what Andy Williams brings to your heart at Christmas time. In this video Andy sings his greatest Christmas hits, while showing his live audience what Christmas time is all about. This video also features Lori Morgan singing the fabulous song from The Sound of Music, My Favorite Things. Christmas is just not complete without this video in your treasury!

4.0 out of 5 stars Spectacle enchanteur Sept. 1 2005
By dendeni
Format:DVD
Andy Williams restera associé à l'image des beaux Noëls de mon enfance. Ici il s'agit d'un spectacle «live» avec public donné plus récemment que du temps où il avait son émission télé. Personnellement j'ai préféré les émissions spéciales de Noël, avec les mises en scènes où la magie se mêle aux chansons, mais ce DVD de son spectacle n'est pas à négliger non plus.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'Old Andy' is as meaningful as 'Young Andy' April 7 2005
By John Cannon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I was initially hesitant to purchase this video thinking that a 'much older Andy Williams' might suffer, voicewise, when compared to the Christmas specials Mr. Williams made in the 1960's and early 1970's. Fortunately, I was proved wrong. Although Andy's voice is not as dynamic as it was thirty years prior, his heart, sincerity and showmanship are as strong as ever. The show has, as always, the right mix of Christmas tradition and newness communicated through song, stage sets, background singers and personnel. The good ol' Osmond Brothers are there and do a few of their classic holiday interpretations. At the time of the taping, they had just moved to Branson and opened up their own theater. Lorrie Morgan adds to the mix also in a wonderful way. Whether it's 'old Andy' or 'young Andy,' if you want to capture that Christmas feeling, you can't go wrong with Mr. Williams. This video will be a fine addition to your Christmas collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars It ain't Xmas until Andy Williams sings Nov. 10 2004
By M. O Schmidt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I love Xmas and I love Andy's Xmas specials - it does seem that you can't have one without the other. His shows are professionally done, but folksy and boy next door at the same time. No matter how old he gets, he will always be the same age to me. Certainly there are other singers who sing better, but nobody matches Andy for charm and sincerity. This is a real feel-good DVD. You can't avoid smiling and being transported back to a kinder gentler time through Andy's magic. The rest of the world may go insane, but as long as there is Andy Williams, it is possible to believe in goodness, magic, love, and Xmas.

2.0 out of 5 stars so-so Sept. 19 2007
By 4 konijnen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I wouldn't recommend this. I have the "Best of the Andy Williams Christmas shows", (snips from the Christmas shows in the 60's-this was EXCELLENT). I would recommend the Best of the Andy Williams Christmas shows instead of this one. This was a bit slow and a little boring. Sure, in this one, it was in the 90's and Andy is an old man, I understand that. My parents liked it. It did remind me of the shows they used to have like Christmas in the White House in the late 80's and 90's, (that sort of style). When I want to calm the kids down, I put this on because it's not exciting , just calm. Some people might like it but for our taste, I like the Best of the Andy Williams Christmas shows better. It was more entertaining and magical. Why can't they have Christmas shows like that anymore? Where has the magic and innocense and simplicity gone? What happen to the showmanship and why do do they always have to incorporate sexy stuff in a family programs? I really do wish we can have shows that are innocent and good with showmanship and that are simple.

4.0 out of 5 stars Polished, Yet Simple, From Branson, MO in 1993 March 4 2005
By G. Reid - Published on Amazon.com
Format:VHS Tape
I can give it 4 1/2 stars. It is Andy's simpler format from years ago. He does a very nice job with "Oh Holy Night." The audience has lighted candles. It is very touching. The concert is recorded live at Moon River Theatre in Branson, Mo. This video contains 25 classic Christmas Songs as seen on PBS. It is not 1971 as Amazon has, in error, at one place in the listing. This is the older, more mature, Andy Williams with a nicely done concert.
